This is just wrong.


The video was shot at a Massachusetts school for special needs kids called the Judge Rotenberg Center (JRC). Gregory Miller used to be a teacher there, and he says electrocuting kids as punishment is extremely common -- even for minor offenses like raising your hand to go to the bathroom.

The Center's take on it?

"It is used to change behaviors in order to save, extend and enrich students' lives to help turn them around, to give them hope for their own future and to enable them to once again become part of, and enjoy the love of, their family,"

I don't normally push petitions online, but electrocuting special needs children as "punishment" strikes me as just wrong..|Online Petition Form
