    Now, all that has to be done is to see if the person that ruled him incompetent, is competent of making that decision.

    He was competent enough to steal MILLIONS from people. Strip him of his property (and money) and stick him in a mental institution FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE. He can’t hurt anyone else there. Do the crime Do the time!!!!!!!
