    Judge Rotenberg Center Trial: Tape Shows Teen Being Shocked 31 Times (GRAPHIC VIDEO)

    The "counselors" laughed while they were torturing this kid.

    How do these people, and the lawyers representing them, look at themselves in the mirror?

    Psychopaths and Sociopaths with normal to above average intelligence seek positions where abuse of others can be justified as appropriate. This is why we see so much clearly sadistic behavior in prison guards and police officers, but every once in a while one of these freaks ends up in psychiatric medicine, where they can get their jollies on a scale undreamed of by rank and file sadists.

    Whenever we accept that "some people" must be abused, we are falling for the manipulations of a sadistic psychopath. We should blame ourselves. It's not like these personality types were just invented yesterday. They have been around since the beginning of "civilization", and their strategies for getting over on the rest of us have never changed in all that time.

    all of these perps are screwed, their "Center" is screwed, and their insurer is screwed. My spidey sense tells me a very large judgement is coming down for this.....It has taken a great many years for this case to wend its way to trial, and that means big $ are at stake. This video is the smoking gun. The defense is toasted..

    But where else is this kind of thing going on? How many other places?

    As with so much abuse (TSA, prisons, nursing homes), there's a lot more going on than we'll ever find out about. Yet people don't want to believe it.

    And again, it's not just temperamentally sadistic personalities at work here. Of course those people exist, and of course they're drawn to professions where they get to lord their authority over others. But they're a small percentage of the population. The scarier thing is that "normal" "ordinary" people are easily induced to behave this way as well. Again, Zimbardo, Milgram, Asch.
