For an article from a liberal and progressive news site on the Judge Rotenberg Center (for everyone upset because it's Fox), see http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2...

This is NOT electrostatic or electroconvulsive therapy used for some mental disabilities such as depression or bipolar disorder. This is electric SHOCK used as a punishment.
Andre was asked to take off his jacket. When he refused, staff electric shocked him and he tried to hide under a table. They dragged him out and tied him facedown to a restraint board where he was kept for seven hours without a break, and shocked a total of thirty-one times. In court, it was admitted that all but one of those electric shocks were for tensing up or screaming.
If you are horrified, disgusted, and sickened by what you just watched, please contact the members of the Massachusetts Joint Committee on Children, Families, and Persons with Disabilities. There are four bills currently assigned to that committee that target the JRC. Read more about the bills (and see links to their full text) here: http://www.autismeducationproject.org...
The Senate Chair is Michael Rodrigues.
The House Chair is Kay Khan.
Call and email and let the members of the Committee know that you support S. 49, S. 50, S. 51, and H. 77. Urge them to report those bills favorably from committee.
Read the first-hand coverage written by a friend of mine who attended the trial against the JRC last month, in which Andre McCollins's family sued the JRC:

This video comes from Fox News. No copyright infringement intended. ALL rights belong to Fox. This is being distributed to call attention to the torture and abuse perpetrated by the Judge Rotenberg Center against people with severe disabilities, all in the name of treatment. The footage aired on 10 April 2012, the same date that this footage of Andre McCollins was shown in open court after repeated attempts by the JRC's lawyers to prevent the video from ever being seen by the public.
