Reply To: Simple exposure brings lifetime of cruel and unusual treatment for disabled son, family

I feel sick at reading this. I know of a young man on the Autism spectrum in RI who also had had a photo on his phone sent by a peer and is now a RSO. But I imagine almost all people on the registry experience significant trauma. They certainly do in PA. Moreover, weekly “treatment” done in PA by mostly unlicensed and non-clinical people approved only for SVPs is forced upon all registrants for life or until they get off supervision. This causes further trauma and harm. My son was hospitalized twice ff. AWA for depression and suicidal thoughts and behavior. It’s long past time we think about suing the states for “intentional infliction of emotional harm” for irresponsibly forcing thousands of people to endure further trauma. People really have no idea what goes on.
