Cuomo’s Justice Center is covering-up most reported crimes and “untimely” deaths of the disabled to defraud the federal government

This well thought out fraudulent State agency is not a Justice Center, but instead an important part of a fraudulent corruption scheme to continue to bilk Medicaid. ”

DELMAR, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 3, 2016 / -- Leading advocate for the disabled and their families in New York State, Michael Carey, is calling for federal criminal investigations by US Attorney Preet Bharara. Governor Cuomo’s Justice Center is a fraudulent whitewash entity where most reported crimes and deaths disappear. The main reason for these atrocities and criminal cover-ups is to continue to defraud the federal government. Governor Cuomo’s Justice Center is keeping most reported crimes and deaths of people with disabilities that occur in known unsafe State or privately sub-contracted facilities and group homes from local authorities, including elected District Attorney’s and Medical Examiners or Coroners. These criminal practices are how most crimes against the disabled are easily covered-up. The Medicaid Ponzi Scheme needed to be cleverly disguised, so Governor Cuomo called his Scheme, The Justice Center for the Protection of People with Special Needs (Justice Center). This well thought out fraudulent State agency is not a Justice Center, but instead an important part of a fraudulent corruption scheme to continue to bilk Medicaid.
Evidence and key documents obtained through Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) requests reveal that witnessed and reported crimes numbering in the many thousands were and continue to be purposefully kept from County elected District Attorney’s so that they would hidden and never be prosecuted. All along Governor Cuomo and his administration have portrayed his Justice Center as a legit law enforcement entity to the general public, as well as to all New York State Counties and law enforcement agencies, which is not true. What really has been occurring though is one of the most egregious and heinous scams and criminal schemes imaginable which involves fraud and covering up most reported crimes including criminally negligent deaths of some of the most vulnerable. The former Executive Director of Governor Cuomo’s Justice Center, Jeff Wise, is publicly quoted saying some extremely damning things regarding its operations in a July 15, 2013 Spotlight News article titled. “State’s new Justice Center makes Bethlehem its home.” First, “Wise said the Center is not a first response team” yet legitimate police agencies are first responders. Cuomo’s Justice Center, instead, has been actively keeping most reported crimes and deaths of people with disabilities from local first responder medical and police personnel which is gross discrimination and is deadly. The level of discrimination and lack of concern for the safety, health and lives of our most vulnerable is unconscionable. Second, Wise is directly quoted saying, “We’re meant to be an added level of security,” he said. “Our special prosecutor is meant to assist local district attorney’s when needed.” Cuomo’s Justice Center was set up though to bypass local prosecutors so that they would be able to successfully continue the massive cover-ups. This is occurring by fielding the thousands of criminal complaints every month and by bypass the normal 911 call systems so that local police cannot respond or be able to do a criminal investigation. Cuomo’s Justice Center is also regularly keeping most crimes reported to them from being reported to County elected District Attorney’s, leaving local DA’s unaware in most cases of crimes including deaths that occurred within their own county. Governor Cuomo appointed Patricia Gunning, as a New York State employee with a direct conflict of interest, to be a Special Prosecutor specifically to bypass County elected Prosecutors. Through a FOIL request an extremely damning email written by Patricia Gunning to County District Attorney’s dated October 14, 2015 surfaced revealing that she “will begin sending case referrals for matters that have been called in to the Vulnerable Person Central Register (VPCR) so that your office may investigate and prosecute as you deem appropriate.” This email reveals that many thousands of criminal cases were not referred to County elected District Attorney’s from June 30, 2013 to October 14, 2015 so they could not be prosecuted. Most reported criminal cases were never criminally investigated and they were covered-up internally between this time period and since which demands federal criminal investigations by US Attorney Preet Bharara, specifically because of Governor Cuomo’s direct involvement.
The truth is public knowledge; Cuomo’s Justice Center has been repeatedly exposed by AP News and BuzzFeed News this past year in numerous investigative reporting pieces. I have attached a few of the most recent;
For many decades New York State has treated the disabled and those struggling with mental illness as a sub class of human being, or in other terms the bottom of the barrel New York State is allowing the financial exploitation of the disabled so that well connected individuals and private provider agencies can enrich themselves. New York State, under the guise of a “Justice Center” is hiding and concealing most of the witnessed and reported crimes, the severe injuries and loss of innocent lives occurring as a direct result of the known fraud and corruption. This corruption surrounding the disabled was orchestrated by Governor Cuomo and many other top New York State officials including Attorney General Schneiderman are involved which demands swift federal intervention and criminal investigations.
People entrenched in this culture of corruption believe they must hide the severe damages, injuries and deaths resulting from their shameful actions. The extremely negligent, corrupt and deadly New York State mental health care system and the Justice Center cover-up entity must be exposed for what it really is and top State officials involved must be held accountable for their crimes. To reveal the scope of atrocities and fraud in New York State, most physical and sexual abuse and neglect of the disabled will never be witnessed and reported. Every month over 7,000 calls on average are called into Governor Cuomo’s Justice Center internal abuse and death hotline and in most cases the criminals are protected not the disabled. Eleven to twelve deaths of people with disabilities are reported to this same fraudulent State agency every day on average and the acting Executive Director, Jay Kiyonaga, has directed in writing that the State and private provider agencies investigate deaths occurring in their own facilities. . There cannot be a greater conflict of interest and NYS law requires Medical Examiners and Coroners to be investigating these deaths, but the State is purposefully keeping most deaths from them. Here is the exact quote from the Jay Kiyonaga Memorandum, “State and private providers should continue to review/investigate deaths in their programs, unless informed otherwise by the Justice Center.” Keeping deaths hidden from local authorities and internal? There is only one reason for this type of activity. Governor Cuomo knows that there cannot be a greater conflict of interest and that this is a criminal obstruction of justice, but this is the agreement the State has with their providers which is about protecting them and their employees from litigation and assist them in Medicaid Fraud. Federal law states that State and federal funds are only to go to programs that are free from abuse and neglect, free from financial exploitation and free from human rights violations, yet most of these facilities and group homes are rampant with all three. State reports must be falsified and what really is going on behind closed doors kept hidden from the feds to keep the free billions of federal funds flowing into NYS annually. Instead of making numerous critical life saving actions to protect the disabled, NYS has taken no significant actions to stop any of these horrors.
The website of the former Commission on Quality of Care and Advocacy for Persons with Disabilities (CQC) now called the Justice Center states that they are about protecting people with special needs from abuse and neglect, but it really is about protecting the abusers and those providing negligent and unsafe care and services from Medicaid Fraud. Governor Cuomo’s disgraceful and fraudulent whitewash entity is about making almost all reported crimes, including criminally negligent deaths disappear. Governor Cuomo must be removed from office and indicted for what is likened to war crimes. The Medicaid Ponzi Scheme involving billions of misappropriated federal Medicaid dollars and the financial exploitation of innocent children and adults with disabilities must be stopped now.
Stand with us for “equal rights” and “civil rights” for people with disabilities in New York State and throughout our great country by signing our petition at No longer can 911 be bypassed, 911 call systems must be immediately called by all mandated reporters regarding all physical and sexual assaults, gross negligence of care, significant and suspicious injuries and when a person with a disability is in medical distress or has stopped breathing.
