Well made documentary about yet another scandal in the USA.
3 August 2020 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

I'm an European and I would never have imagined that such a scandal could happen in the United States, or at least not for thirty years uninterrupted without anybody official doing something about it. It's the kind of scandal you would think could only happen in dictatorships, but not in 'The Land Of The Free'. The documentary is very well done, it's sometimes hard to watch, as no-one right in his mind could do something so bad to the elderly, you have to be a psychopath to do that. Children and the eldery, those two vulnerable groups of people should always be protected by their governments, and after this documentary we can only conclude that the whole system is corrupt in Nevada. Witnessing those psychopaths acting above the law, or dictating their own law, without any consequences and that while they represent the authority it's very frightening. Shame on you Nevada! My wife is from there, we watched this documentary and couldn't believe our eyes. I'm glad she came to live with me instead of the other way round, you for sure don't want to end the rest of your precious old days in Las Vegas. I can't believe the FBI is not on this case either, what the heck is wrong with justice in America? In conclusion, watch this documentary, it will open your eyes if you were asleep, open your eyes and make your own conclusions who you want to trust in the future, certainly not the government.
