Then to compound this harm, Southwest Key personnel, in response, asked the child is asked to sign a document (see below) where she understands and agrees that it is her responsibility to avoid any further sexual abuse by staying away from her aggressor. For this to be their response is itself a violation.
This whole facility should get shut down for such practices. What else is happening there that we should know about, especially considering the larger story researched by Propublica that I posted yesterday titled, “If You’re a Predator, It’s a Gold Mine"?
The public needs to know the full extent of abuse that is happening right now against defenseless children and adults. We must demand complete transparency and accountability.
And these kinds of so-called bureaucratic process for dealing with such matters need to be terminated, period.
We must call our public officials and demand that they get answers from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, as well as from the Department of Homeland Security on such matters, including a lack of due process for children and families like these.
The rule of law should mean something to us in this country.
