An international body entrusted with upholding human rights across the Americas has called for an immediate ban on the controversial use of electric shocks on severely disabled children in a school outside Boston.
The Judge Rotenberg Center in Canton, Massachusetts, is believed to be the only school in the world that routinely inflicts high-powered electric shocks as a form of punishment on vulnerable children and adults. About 47 of its students are currently subjected to the “treatment”, which involves individuals being zapped with electric currents far more powerful than those discharged by stun guns.
Disability rights campaigners have tried for decades to stop the practice, which the school’s administrators call “aversive therapy”. So far the institution has managed to fend off all opposition, arguing that electric shocks are an acceptable way of discouraging harmful habits.
I’m sorry what did you say is going on? There’s a United States school where they fucking electrocute you if you do something bad? Did I hear that right? And no this is not a quick little zap where you don’t feel anything. The power these give off is being described as far more powerful than that of STUN GUNS. We thought Adrian Peterson hitting his kid with a piece of a tree branch was bad? Well they’re zapping disabled children if they get in trouble in Canton, Massachusetts. And no one has been arrested. No one has been fired. And they just keep shocking people because they think that’s the right way to handle things. So far everyone has ruled this an acceptable form of punishment over the years because I guess we don’t give people human rights anymore. Gone are the days of lunch detention and/or timeout. We’re onto physical torture.

This has to also be on the parents as well. Why are you sending your kids to this hell hole? What are you doing? Be a parent and stand up for your kid. They’re just going to school to be electrocuted and you’re letting it happen. Unless you just don’t give a fuck and are a horrible person or these poor kids are parentless. If I forgot to do an assignment and was going to get in trouble in elementary school my mom would just let me stay home because she was the shit. If she knew I was going to get electrocuted she would send the goddamn National Guard.
