Let our voices be heard by those who can’t speak
After reading the story, “No charges in SDC Taser assault,” I am upset beyond words.
I am a parent of a developmentally challenged adult. She was abused by professionals years ago and suffers every day of her life from this trauma.
I love animals and the laws to protect them. The laws to protect our loved ones seem less strong or enforced.
Kathleen Miller stated, “It’s the law of average, you have a few bad apples.” I say the few bad apples need to be exposed and punished if they are found guilty of a crime. This goes for the alleged rape recently reported in the news at SDC as well.
Anyone of us or our loved ones could sustain a head injury at anytime and have a “caregiver” standing over us. This caregivers had the power to treat us humanely or inhumanely.
I pray the public makes a stand in this case and that people write letters, emails and make phone calls to the Sonoma County District Attorney’s office, attention Mr. Spencer Brady, chief deputy district attorney. And also to Terri Delgadillos, director of the State Department of Developmental Services.
Let our voices be heard for those who cannot speak.
