Occupy the Judge Rotenberg Center

Make this viral. From ksol1460.

The Judge Rotenberg Center is a place for autistic kids in Massachusetts, where parents put kids that they don't know how to deal with. The kids have to wear shock devices 24-7 and anytime the staff doesn't like their behavior, they get shocked. There's restraint and seclusion and food deprivation, there's stuff that is illegal when it's done to prisoners of war but cause these kids are mentally disabled people think it's ok.

This is the Stanford Prison Experiment happening in real life, every day, and nobody's yet been able to shut it down, because the lawyers and manipulators are too good at doing what they do.

The video in the first link just got released last Tuesday, April 10. It's been sealed by the courts for eight years because bureaucrats know how to work the system to suppress truth. It's of Andre McCollins, when he was 18, being strapped down and repeatedly shocked.

I haven't watched it.

But it needs to spread.

Anonymous is targeting the JRC. There is a National Day of Action on June 2 where people are going to the JRC to peacefully protest. There are links to petitions and contact information for government representatives here. Anyone who doesn't live close enough to go protest, the next thing to do is spread the word online.

Yeh no kidding. Sign something, tell people about it, I am sick to death of seeing this kind of manipulation thrive.
