Call to Action!!! Exploitation of elderly man by second wife and father's rights activist

Paetunia was emailed a link to a very sad Youtube video.

While I understand this man's plight seems absolutely horrific, Petunia would like to make several points. My first point is the title of this video. The uploader tries to make you the viewer believe that this man was just recently forced into alimony payments as a disabled, suffering from Alzheimer patient. The uploader would also like you to believe that she is stuck at home caring for him 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Watching the video and listening to the uploader, you can see that she does indeed get breaks from his care. When people get older, they do sometimes develop illnesses and problems. This is extremely sad.

But if you scroll down through the comments (and yes I commented on this video - not to the uploader but to one of the viewers who commented. Sadly you can tell that the person who commented is this man's grown daughter and grandson. They ask Linda to remove this video and replace it with something else. They do not try to take away her right to complain about her situation, they simply ask her to allow their father and grandfather to have some dignity in his last days. I am asking that each one of you view this video (or not, you do not need to do so as it is extremely sad and as much as I did not want to give it any bandwidth, I must in order to highlight his plight and that of his first family), and call 800-96-ABUSE (800-962-2873) and report Linda Morgan and give them the URL to this youtube video. Please get this man some protection. Who knows what kind of care this man is receiving (as you can see from the daughter's comment "Linda" was at the movies when daughter first saw the video) from Linda and if Linda is capable of producing this video and uploading it to youtube what else is she capable of.

I will be making an event for this online (Facebook) which will continue on indefinitely until this video is removed and Linda Morgan is investigated for abuse, neglect and exploitation of a disabled person.
