I thought the torture known as “aversion therapy” went out of practice decades ago. Clearly not, as the video below demonstrates. It shows autistic (as if having your mind bent out of shape by pointless vaccines wasn’t bad enough) 18 year old Andre McCollins being restrained face down, having a helmet forced onto his head and then given a total of 31 electric shocks, over a period of hours, for the apparent crime of not removing his jacket at the ‘Judge Rotenberg Centre’ for the disabled in Massachusetts. Watch it. It is clearly torture.
This happened in 2002. As equally despicable in my view is that no-one could see this footage until now because the centre convinced a judge to seal it eight years ago. More video and comment here.
