    I first contacted HALT 20 years ago. They claimed to have 75,000 members, but when I asked to talk with one of their lawyers near where I lived, they had none with whom they could connect me. More importantly, what has HALT done to stop lawyers from exploiting cognitively-impaired older adults and those with related interests? Has HALT done anything to bring about a law which would trigger the alerts to hospital authorities and others which are needed in situations like that recorded by the 3-minute video which ABC News presents online at http://abcnews.go.com/video/playerIndex?id=8486577?
