Torture Constitutes “Treatment” at the Judge Rotenberg Center

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

While a student at the Judge Rotenberg Center, Andre McCollins is strapped down to a gurney and electrically shocked 31 times after refusing to comply with staff requests that he remove his jacket. His ordeal endures for SEVEN HOURS

JRC Expert Admits Shocks Didn’t Work, But Says Damage Was Minimal:

(MyFoxBoston.com) There were tough questions in court Friday for an expert who suggested that a teenager shocked and restrained for hours was treated appropriately.

Psychiatrist Lloyd Price, testifying on behalf of the Judge Rotenberg Center, tried to portray former JRC student Andre McCollins as a violent and angry young man who needed to be restrained.

McCollins was 18 at the time and a client of JRC in 2002 when he was shocked 31 times inside a classroom, mostly while restrained face-down on a restraint board. The treatment was inappropriate and unneeded and is causing damage to this day, his lawyers contend.

My Commentary: “Pain compliance” does not constitute ‘treatment.” It is basic conditioning, such as is done on lab rats… This pseudo-scientific attempt to control the very being of a human is not only in complete violation with our natural born rights, it just so happens to cause brain damage in victims, directly and through trauma. It is just another in a long list of disgraceful and barbaric practices committed against humanity in the name of “medicine.”
