Ban Torture of People with Disabilities (US) and #StopTheShock

Judge Rotenberg Center, Canton, Massachusetts, US, has featured in the fairness watch before, in 2007. Now since 2016 there actually are draft regulations banning its practices, use of ELECTRIC SHOCKS TO CHANGE AUTISTIC BEHAVIOUR, INCLUDING FOR KIDS, but the government department concerned with it, the Food and Drug Administration, is dragging its feet on implementation.

Resulting in this online campaign for more urgency about it:

Exactly the same issues are dealt with elsewhere including  in the community, without the wrong of punishment regimes. The same as in education and school, free unpressured learning works and punishment regimes to force working always backfire and fail.
