Reading through that, I am beyond furious. If a child of mine, or a niece or nephew, or grandchild, was treated that way, I'd probably end up in jail
for my response. Just the thought of my nephew or grandson, both of whom are autistic, being treated like that, makes steam come out of my ears.
What is wrong with these people?!?!? Hospitals, nursing homes, and psychiatric treatment facilities cannot use such methods, but schools CAN?!?!? If
a parent were to lock a child in a bare room like that, you can guarantee CPS would be pushing for criminal charges, but the SCHOOL can do it???
Anyone that doubts parents would be charged, do a search. They are charged for such behavior.
The ONLY reason I could see any restraint at all for a child in school is is the child was attempting to harm others, or themselves, and that was the
only option. Certainly, injuring the child is NOT a valid part of such a solution, either. Treating an autistic child in such a fashion is simply
messed up. Slamming his hand in a door?!?!? For what, making noise?
This is as bad as the case where the mother found her child in a duffel-bag sort of restraint, in the hallway. These people need to have the crap
beat out of them, on the spot, with no repercussions for the parent.
This is beyond sick. Programming; teaching children that they are slaves to the State, and cannot protest or they will be treated as prisoners. They
ARE prisoners. The Department of Education needs to go, immediately. Across the board. Let local government arrange schooling. That our elected
officials haven't done anything about this is a disgrace.
Well, God doesn't take it lightly when people are evil to children. Their day will come.
Time to listen to some Drowning Pool.....anyone care to guess the song?
