Roads to Freedom started this petition to Michael Gamel-McCormick

“Please Don’t Murder Me!” reads an excerpt from the journal of David Italiano, an individual who is being held captive and blocked from outside contact in Pennsylvania’s broken guardianship system.

MindFreedom International (MFI) in conjunction with Roads to Freedom Center for Independent Living (RTFCIL), is attempting to locate and establish the well-being of David Italiano an elderly person in Pennsylvania. He has ‘disappeared’ and denied outside contact by a government funded agency called the Huntingdon County Area Agency (AAA). RTFCIL had been assisting David with making his desired and requested transition from the nursing home back into living in his own home. The nursing home, Embassy of Loyalsock, along with his assigned guardian, blocked all contact with RTFCIL, going so far as taking away his personal cell phone. Later, he was transferred to an undisclosed residence and all requests for information as to where he was currently living have been ignored. 

It has been more than a year since David has been held captive in Pennsylvania’s broken guardianship system, a black hole which many elderly people fall into regardless of the existence of better alternatives.

What is happening to him could happen to any of us!

We must protect David Italiano and in doing so, send a clear message to lawmakers and people who benefit from working in an oppressive system that we will not tolerate such human rights abuses. 

Please sign this petition and help us find David Italiano and confirm his well-being.

Help David exercise his right to receive appropriate services to assist his choice to live independently in the home that he still owns.
