Judge sides with school that uses electric shocks on its students w/Note via John Greally

johngreallyContent Warning: Triggering comments from parents that are pro the electro-shocking torture of autistics.

Parents of children attending the Judge Rotenberg Center are today celebrating a lower probate and family court ruling that their autistic children can continue to be shocked dozens of times each day, each time “as a last resort”.

Parents in their brief to the court had asserted that electro-shocks were a ‘Positive Behavioural Support’. The State, opposing this animal-like torture, having received a 290,000 signature petition from autistics and allies, asserted violent shockings were clearly used hourly for “minor episodes of noncompliance”.

A group of parents, lifted by the lower court result, are now pushing for much more aversive/coercive centers to be established across the nation, to speed progress towards an autism-behaviours cure some day, or – if the State is to be believed – to wreak more severe revenge on more autistic children in a politico-legalised fashion.

Scott Thompson
Scott Thompson Let me get this straight. A parent can’t discipline their child without fear of being dragged into the legal system as a criminal but a school can use electro-shock “therapy” on a routine basis to gain conformity and compliance on that same child. This is torture, plain and simple. Are we being kept in line with cattle prods? Disgraceful. Shut It Down.

Richard Hood What idiots! Why would parents celebrate their kids being tortured! This place should be shut down and used as an Autism acceptance training school that all NTs must attend.

This school needs to redo it’s staff or just be shut down altogether. The teachers responsible should have their licences revoked too.

Mitch Smith Fuck the courts, shut the school down and hold the staff AND the parents without trial. Shock THEM several times daily, make THEM suffer. I’m done with civility, I’m done with compromise, it’s time for fucking revenge.

Angie Moore

Angie Moore I would be under the jail if that was my son, that is child abuse and a arcuaic treatment. Parents and the judge are abusing those kids.

Miriam Bayliss

Miriam Bayliss Well, I feel. The parents should have to be locked up in the same place and shocked all day to the maximum everyday that a person has ever received, and as I understand it that’s a significant amount. And when the protest and show non acceptance and therefore non compliance they should be shocked again.

Clare Nolan There aren’t enough swear words in the world!!!
What a bunch of inhuman cretins. Especially the parents. How f@#king dare they do this to another person, let alone their own child!!!!
