I am a medical social worker, and I have taken an oath to advocate for others who can't speak for themselves. This judge hasn't forgotten the oath that she took as a judge, as well as a lawyer. The evidence has shown that the victim has the capacity to make her own decisions. She has a right to self-determination. What gives a judge, or anyone for that matter, the right to take that away from her? The case is simple; the evidence speaks for itself. This is why the rulings of this judge need to be investigated -- because of her failure to look at the evidence in its entirety, objectively. It is just that simple. The victim has verbalized over and over that she wants to go with her children, and she should be allowed to do so. She isn't a criminal; she is a human being who has the right to self-determination.

Judge Carroll aids in the abuse of the disabled by unrelated caregivers and disregards the wishes of individuals in favor of their unrelated guardians. This is a travesty.

LaToya Fredricks claims that her mother, a stroke victim, has been in the hands of a "guardian" who neglects and abuses her, and that there is evidence of this abuse from her doctors, the WI Dept. of Aging, Milwaukee County Community Care and police. Rather than hear or heed this evidence and allow the patient to remain in the care of her actual family, Judge Carroll chosen to side with this unrelated "guardian." The patient wishes to remain with her real family in Georgia, but these wishes are being disregarded by the court. The wishes of the patient and those of her children and grandchildren, especially in light of information from the aforementioned WI agencies, should and would be respected by a judge concerned with the best interests of the patient. Yet these interests were not taken into account. This judge apparently has no regard for the welfare of a woman whose life is in her hands. I doubt this is an isolated case. The law should be administered with justice and mercy in mind, and I see no evidence of either here.

Seriously these Judges need to spend time in the real world with people who are in fear of their life or those of their loved ones. The only right these abusers should have would be a place to sleep and a meal. Their families should not have to live in fear of their lives. The loved ones of these families should not have to fear that one day their loved one will be taken away due to abuse and violence. This judge as well as many others should get off their pedestal and listen. Law enforcement needs to do a better job of insuring a person who is afraid of being abused or worse yet, killed that they can be safe. No matter what. I would rather you make an error putting someone in prison rather than risking their life. Ask my sister from Durham, NC who was murdered by her husband because she could not be guaranteed safety from a man who continually threatened her life for years.

Abuser's have a tenency to have the funds for an attorney... hmmm perhaps Judge Carroll went to law school with the abuser's attorney. This is one of thoses cases in who you know not what you know. As always, it's the "OPINION" OF THE COURT.

I am beginning to think that our judicial system is being ran by people with little or no intelligence, compassion or caring. Commonsense seems to be lacking, also. Decisions such as this, only reinforces those thoughts. This judge needs a serious case of real world living, not the obvious ivory tower that she exists in.

If this judge were a male, I could assume they were ignorant of what abuse does to a woman - since she's female she does not get a pass for making totally ignorant decisions. Judge: You cannot place this woman back in the hands of the man who probably caused her strokes in the first place. Maybe you were tired and overwhelmed at the horror of this case but choosing to send her back to death is unconscionable.

All judges have a responsibility to follow the law AND to use common sense when handing down decisions. This judge appears to be doing neither rendering the word "Honorable" before her name disingenuous at best. This woman is not performing her duties to protect the weak but is using them to strengthen the overbearing and therefore is not worthy to hold her position on the bench.

As a domestic violence educator and a regional director of an in-home social work practice, I came to expect the utmost care, concern and scrutiny from the multiplicity of judges that I was blessed to interact with from Atlanta to Baltimore. The information provided in this situation reveal a person who is not invested in the welfare of the incapacitated citizen but instead, in just moving the case along. This method of operation is unacceptable for a judge. She needs to take responsibility for making a decision based on all the factors and interests involved.

THIS WOMAN WHO HOLDS THE TITLE AS JUDGE DOESN'T EVEN DESERVE A "1"!!WHERE IS THE '0' RATING?
It's outrageous HOW this judge lacked all necessary facts to make a sound judgement. The mother is clearly afraid of her husband who constantly abuses her. This man should be charged for elderly abuse. This judge is a disgrace to choose an abuser over the abused. She truly needs to be investigated for her rulings!! My prayers go out to the daughters & family, that God will unite her back with her family before it's to late.

+Judges should be held accountable for their "opinions" especially when those decisions result in endangering people's lives. If the judge cannot or will not thoroughly review the evidence presented, the credibility of the witnesses, and examine BOTH sides of the issue, that judge must be removed from the bench and forever barred from holding such positions of authority.

I'm shocked that this judge determined that her daughters could not obtain guardianship. I read the story about him showing his gun and police reports of him beating her. I think it's outrageous that this judge lacked all the necessary facts to make a sound judgement. The mother is clearly afraid of her husband who constantly abuses her. When I read about her weight loss I was doubly upset. This man has no business caring for this woman.

Judge Carroll is in need of training on the dynamic of domestic violence. It is unfortunate that judges are not responsible for their "opinions". That is why there are higher courts who can overturn an opinion. In the inerim the victim will continue to be abused. It us unfortunate that victims can speak louder when they are six feet under. That is when laws get written and passed. But it will always be the "opinion" of the Court no matter how good a law is. Voters need to remember Judge Carroll on the next election and campaign against her.

The judge should have read all the evidence and questioned all the people involved. It seems to me that she just couldn't be bothered to take the case on properly. She should be charged with neglect of her duties. If this poor lady dies at the hands of her abuser, the judge will be responsible. I hope this doesn't happen and all ends well. The lady obviously has a loving family and my best wishes and hopes are with them for the best possible outcome xxx

I can't blame the judge. She had to follow guidelines & drs letters. If people looked after their elders instead of just complaining about others that don't these things wouldn't happen. We need to respect our elders. Im aboriginal & we prize our elders as they hand down important secrets to us. They look after our children when we work & when they become incompacited the grandchildren help look after them until its our turn. People have let themselves become cattle instead of living off the land. They watch mind controlling tv & music & just think about themselves. We were the 1st on this earth & we will be the last.

Based on my experience with her, I have to question how did she pass the bar, and who voted her on the bench. This judge is the WORST. I believe her decisions are not based on what is just or fair, she looks out for who she knows. This woman put my mother BACK in the hands of an abuser and she was presented with COMPLETE EVIDENCE. Wisconsin state agencies even testified against this abuser, AND we had medical records and she called us all liars and put my mother back in the hands of this abuser. SHE DOES NOT NEED TO BE ON THE BENCH. SO TAKE HER OFF AND SEND HER BACK TO SCHOOL...FOR ANOTHER CAREER!!! BECAUSE LAW IS NOT HER CALLING...

She is completely out of order with how her thinking process is screwed up to actually break a mother away from her children, children that will not give up the fight to be able to become the rightful guardian, people who know what is the proper care for their mom. It just doesn't make any sense.

If I could have chosen a 0, I would. This Judge has put my mother in GREAT danger by granting her abusive boyfriend guardianship. My sisters and I continue to fight with all that we have. We can't afford an attorney. My Mother's health is now declining from the result. My disabled Mom has clearly spoken that her guardian has hit her in her face on several occasions threatens her with a gun, forces unprescribed meds in her mouth to keep her sedated. My Mother sits disabled in a wheelchair after repeated strokes. Now that he has this guardianship, he will not allow her family visitation or a phone call. My Mother faces death! I am so afraid of loosing my Mom. Milwaukee wake up!She is not going to protect your or honor the law. What if this was your Mother, Sister or Aunt? Please understand how my sisters and I feel. This judge didn't care after hearing teh testimonies of reliable agencies. This guardian has falsiified documents to make himself look like he is her husband. Judge Carroll looked at me and my sisters and her exact words were that we were mean and cruel to take my Mom to Georgia. We had to protect our Mother. What would she have done? Even the guardians very ownd daughter reported him for abuse. Judge Carroll never took the time to read the reports nor did dhe care about the dependable testimonies of the agencies or the nurses that witnessed the abuse and now the blood of my Mom is on her hands. God will prevail.... PRAY with me and my sisters is all that I ask.

This Judge ruled an abused disabled woman back in the hands of her abuser after hearing several state agencies testimony of abuse and neglect. Ruled before the abuser who never approached the witness stand. That mean she never heard the full case or proof against him.
