One thought on “JRC Survivor Speaks Out

  1. Some of the things she was shocked for (according to part 2): not answering staff within 5 seconds, saying the word “no”, shaking my head, waving my hands in front of my face, 5 verbal behaviors in an hour (talk to self, repeating, crying, bizarre speech, nagging), tensing up,

    Who could argue that that is not cruel. I Say it’s very cruel, and a violation of basic human rights. People are supposed to have the right to say “no”. This is sick. And it angers me that people defend this place so completely.
