One of my Facebook friends, a woman I worked with many years ago, has a son who lives in a special group home for people with both autism and mental retardation. (He appears to function on the level of about a 10- to 12-year-old, and I suspect he has some kind of genetic syndrome because he is very short.) She said (paraphrasing) earlier today, “I try to keep my personal life off Facebook, but there is no excuse for people who work in these places to do something like that.” We’re not talking about a single missing item; we’re talking about money not being deposited in his personal account, concert tickets and other items that should have been placed in their safe that seemingly vaporized into thin air, and it’s happened enough times that she realized it’s no coincidence. She has contacted the police, and other people suggested that she also contact the state licensing board, The Arc, and other organizations which advocate for the disabled.
People who harm those who can’t defend themselves are the lowest form of human life on earth. :mad:
