Alleged Disability Abuse by Autism Initiatives. The Mainman Receives a Substantial Out of Court Settlement

abuse and neglect of people with disability is unacceptable mainman audrey

This is an update to our original post from almost three years ago, here:

https://wirralinittogether.blog/2015/03/03/the-liverpool-mayor-versus-the-mainman-how-power-abuse-targets-vulnerable-people-2/

 

This is a positive ending to a long-running scandal, instigated and prolonged by hard right ToryLabour Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson’s long litany of damaging negligence, blaming of others and serious failure.

Anderson’s approach was to dig in and battle against the safety of vulnerable people and the interests of justice, hand in glove with the aggressive “Autism Initiatives” legal team.

This was a deeply regrettable, harrowing situation for the innocent people involved and was both foreseeable and avoidable, ever since the dark days of Winterbourne View, the events recorded by the BBC Panorama programme, and the subsequent ‘new safeguarding regime’ – which was roundly ignored. 

The Mainman’s mum and guru, Audrey is a spirited fighter who has run rings around the corrupted council’s local power brokers.

These officials have been blind to the suffering, and have been ensconced, dug in, squatting, throwing public money at the case hand over fist, and have enjoyed full license to abuse their positions in the safety of their corrupted power base inside Liverpool Town Hall.

We will upate readers here with a link to Audrey’s updated blog and further details when the matter has been signed off by the local courts.

    It can’t be ignored….you must look, listen and know what’s happening. It’s your civic duty. If you saw this abuse happening to a forest Toad, you’d be outraged.
    “Raped, burned, punched, stomped and slapped. People with special needs are under attack. Not by an unknown enemy or random lunatic, but by trusted teachers, nurses, therapists and caregivers. It’s a rising national epidemic.

    This year alone, news reports of abuse include an Arizona nurse who impregnated a disabled woman in a semi-vegetative state; an Ohio caregiver who burned the buttocks and thighs of a man with Down syndrome; a Florida caregiver seen standing on a mentally disabled woman’s neck; a Maryland caregiver caught punching a man with autism; a Utah caregiver admitting he slammed a cerebral palsy man’s head into the ground; two New York school bus aides caught mentally tormenting a student with autism and three special education teachers arrested when a secret recording device revealed they were verbally threatening autistic students with harm. In Washington, hidden cameras caught a nurse aide sexually assaulting a disabled woman, a Texas caregiver beating a non-verbal disabled patient with a broom and a Tennessee home health nurse smacking a bedridden six-year old with traumatic brain injury in the head and face. We also learned a California a man with developmental disabilities, residing in a state licensed care facility, had sustained eye socket fractures from a caregiver. This isn’t the first year of unthinkable abuse.

    Back in 2015, home surveillance caught a Wisconsin behavioral therapist shaking, kicking and head-butting a 3-year old with autism. In 2016, hospital surveillance caught a New Jersey nurse stabbing an autistic teen with hypodermic needles. In 2017, video surveillance caught a New Jersey female nurse slapping a paralyzed patient on a ventilator; another male nurse in California kicking a six year old non-verbal boy who required tube feeding, and caregivers in a Connecticut group home beating a 19-year old disabled woman with a mop handle….” Read full article here:
