A big part of hope and healing of disabled persons is "justice". We have 1,000,000 people with developmental disabilities…., many living in unsafe facilities and group homes that are clearly being discriminated against and in extreme danger- "Life or death" situations? It appears the State's general attitude is the hell with them and their immediate safety and their basic civil right to immediate 911 first responder medical and police services which directly denies "this specific group of people" their "equal protections of laws"
We are urging every mandated reporter, every person with a disability, every family member to directly call 9-1-1 because abuse and neglect are crimes and are emergencies. Abusers will abuse again or possibly even kill if protected and shielded by the State, I know this from experience. My precious son Jonathan is no longer with us because of internal reporting and cover-ups. Thank you MK for advocating for hope and healing of disabled persons, and standing for justice!
