Wait for the facts at SDC
Just a few words of caution lest we are quick to judge and blame without having all the facts.
Fact #1. Jim Rogers, respected, former executive director at the Sonoma Developmental Center, was not fired or “removed” from his position as a result of the taser incident. He, for many reasons of his own, resigned.
Fact #2. The staff at SDC are dedicated professionals and are appalled at the abuse someone has inflicted on residents who cannot defend themselves.
Fact #3. Sensationalizing this sad story without all the facts demoralizes the caretakers and adds to their already over-stressed work lives.
Let’s wait until all the information is in, before we condemn.
As Mark Twain said, “A lie can go halfway around the world before the truth can put its shoes on.”
