Shut Down Shock Therapy School

sad-teen-lockersA Massachusetts school considers tactics like electric shocks, isolation and the use of restraints fair game in working with students with disabilities. It’s time for the state to step in.

Fifty years ago, if someone was deemed “insane” they underwent all sorts of awful procedures like shock therapy and isolation. Many people lived their lives in restraints in mental facilities.

We don’t tolerate subjecting anyone to this kind of cruel therapy anymore — least of all on students with disabilities at school.

Judge Rotenberg School in Massachusetts uses all these “aversive” techniques on their students to correct behavioral problems and outbursts. Some students are shocked up to 30 times a day — a practice some disability rights activists call torture.

This is no way to treat people who clearly need help — not violent punishment — to learn and succeed in school and life.

Judge Rotenberg School has no business being open.

Demand Massachusetts close the school and investigate its officials to make sure they didn’t break the law with their cruel treatment of students.

  1. I half expected to hear that Keith Jr. High School was the culprit. I had to go there for part of 8th grade back in the early 1980s. What a nightmare hell-hole that place was / is!

    – CD

  2. Most which enter the fraud psychiatry field are jewish. I wonder why.
    Because they are natural born satanists. Look up the RingWorm

  3. “Some students are shocked up to 30 times a day — a practice some disability rights activists call torture.”


    What the hell do the others call it???

  4. How the hell can anyone in their right mind do this to a kid? I’d be real happy to read that EVERYONE working there was hauled out into the street and hung from trees. These are sick bastards that can’t be cured.

    Even the guy who sweeps the floors there had to know this was happening, and he’s a willing accomplice if he did nothing to stop it. Every adult who works in that building needs to be subjected to “aversive techniques to correct their behavioral problems”.

    I can’t wait for this revolution to get started. I hereby volunteer for the job of hacking off heads and throwing them into the crowd so they can be hoisted into the air on the ends of long sticks, and paraded down the street in the victory celebration. A lot of heads.
