  •  As I parent of a child with a (4+ / 0-)

    severe disability I'm right there with you. CHILDREN!!!!

    How the hell do they justify this??? There are laws!!! YES laws to prevent this!!! I guess by not taking federal monies they found a way to circumvent the federal protection systems in place. That's the only thing I can think of at the moment. I'm far to outraged to really think clearly. This needs to turn into a national out cry. Every parent with a child with a disability needs to know about this. This goes beyond civil rights--this is nothing short than a denial of basic human rights.

    The advocate in me want to hurt someone for this...Children, babies for Christ sakes. Small children isolated, teenagers locked in a world of elderly people...How the hell does this happen??? Where are the safety nets?

    And this isn't just a few administrations...Bush, Crist, and Scott all have a lot to answer for--And that AG? Ambushed? No, she lost control of the situation and now she's going to have to deal with it--And I'm going to being cheering for the powers that be to bring her to her knees.
