  1. The reason abuse of disabled people continues is because there has been a colossal failure of our justice system to severely punish this type of abuse. The more the abuse is exposed, the more people will know what can happen and be more alerted and ready to spot potential abusers.

    • There are, really, a lot of reasons that form one complex mess concerning why the abuse of disabled or sufficiently “different” folk continues. But you are right in that the failures of the justice system are a big part of that reason. Campaigning to have judges or juries that let completely guilty individuals get away with this reprimanded in some way would send a good message. Another failing, in my view, of the passives.
