Manataka American Indian Council









Here's the way it should  be:

Let's put the seniors in jail  and the criminals in nursing  homes.

This  would correct two things in one  motion:


Would have access to  showers, hobbies and  walks. They would receive unlimited free  prescriptions, dental and  medical Treatment,  wheel chairs, etc.


Would receive money instead of having to pay it  out.


Would have constant video monitoring, so they would be helped  instantly... If  they fell or needed  assistance.


Bedding  would be washed twice a week and all clothing would be ironed  and returned to  them.


A guard would check on them every 20  minutes.


All meals and snacks would be brought to  them.


Would  have family visits in a suite built for that  purpose.


Would have access to a library, weight/fitness room, spiritual counseling, a pool and  education...and free admission to in-house  concerts by  nationally recognized entertainment artists.


Simple  clothing - i.e.. Shoes, slippers, pj's - and legal aid would be free, upon request. 


There  would be private, secure rooms provided for all with an  outdoor exercise yard complete with  gardens.


Would have a P.C., T.V., phone and radio in their room at no cost.


Would  receive daily phone calls.


There  would be a board of directors to hear any complaints and the  ACLU would fight for their rights  and protection.


The guards  would have a code of conduct to be strictly adhered to,  with attorneys available, at no charge to protect the seniors and their  families from abuse or neglect.



Would receive cold food.

Would  be left alone and unsupervised.

Would receive showers once a  week.

Would live in tiny rooms, for which they would have to pay $5,000 per  month.

Would have no hope of ever getting out.

Sounds like justice to us!
