Texas Fight Club Reflects Continued Failure of State Disability Policy
While some readers may find the above video shocking, anyone who has half-way paid attention to recent happenings related to disability issues in the state of Texas won't be surprised at all.
Several months ago we began hearing about the personnel issues with staff working at Texas state schools (institutions). it turned out that dozens of employees had once been fired or disciplined for abuse and or neglect of those living at state institutions and then were rehired again. And now videos surface showing staff at one of these state schools arranging for and carrying out fights between those living in the facility.
The video speaks for itself and while I'd like to think that the state of Texas would administer swift and harsh justice for the abuse these individuals suffered, the fact is that the state's track record on disability leads me to believe that the opposite will likely happen. And, while Governor Perry assures us that he feels the state is properly handling the situation, a voice in the not so distant corner of my mind says he's full of it.
