PLEASE HELP SAVE THE INTERNET

(I know this isn’t about JRC, but it is extremely important, as it effects all of American’s who use the Internet.)

Cable companies are working to change the laws so they can bribe website owners to pay them extra fees for faster access to there sites. This would be the worst thing to ever happen to the Internet.

Weiss also disputes JRC’s claim shocks are only used for students with self-mutilating or life threatening behaviors. Weiss says documents show children are shocked for behaviors such as refusing to follow directions, getting out of their seat, or simply slouching. “You don’t need to be an expert to know that what they do to people at the Judge Rotenberg Center is wrong,” says Weiss. “If parents did anything close to this to their own child they’d be arrested on the spot.”
