A disabled boy was tortured with 31 electric shocks for 7 hours at the Judge Rotenberg Center in Canton, Massachusetts for-GET THIS-refusing to take off his jacket! He also ended up in a coma for 3 days as a result. The school is supposed to help 'fix' disturbed and disabled kids through controversial and potentially harmful, even disturbing techniques, including electric shock therapy, cold showers, and even forcing them to inhale ammonia!
I just can't believe that a school like this is even allowed to be operating, particularly in today's day and age and in America of all places! Also, the boy's mother has sued them for the torture of her son (which she damn well should)! Hopefully this nightmare of a school will finally be closed down for good and all of the monsters responsible for this horrific act and all the countless others they have obviously performed will be punished severely.
