In today's society, I as a parent, could be arrested and charged with child endangerment, child abuse and child neglect for something as serious as giving an electrical shock to my child of 5 years old or 15 years old. Simple as that. We have laws for how parents can parent their child.

Yet, there is a school called the JUDGE ROTENBURG CENTER (google it!) in Canton, MA that uses this exact treatment on children with special needs. They even get a judge to allow them to do this on the children!!! That's not abuse!? Insane!

This has been going on since the mid 1970's! That's quite some time after insane asylums were shut down. Here it is more than 30 years later and this place is STILL OPEN!!! It's 2009! Why are we allowing our CHILDREN to be abused in this form?

I would never even think that this is an ok treatment to perform on a child - yet state legislatures in MA think it's perfectly fine to continue this form of abuse.

The truth of the matter is - we haven't gotten rid of insane asylum's. We've just abolished their names and are secretly abusing these people in group homes and special education schools.

If it's allowed in MA, how do I know they are not also doing this in our own backyard. Pioneer Center. Special Education District of McHenry County (SEDOM). Exactly how are our children being treated when they are out of their parents eyesight?
