Target: Warren Sparrow, President of Options Unlimited Inc.
Goal: Punish an abusive group home employee.
Recently, a video was seen of an employee at a Connecticut group home abusing her patient. The patient was a female with developmental disabilities and was a high-care patient who required assistance bathing and eating. The video depicts the employee kicking the resident, dragging the resident by her hair, and whipping the resident. Regardless of who the victim may be, this is violent and inhumane behavior that needs to be punished. The fact that the victim was developmentally disabled and unable to care for herself makes this crime all the more repulsive. While the employee was dismissed from her job, this is not punishment enough. It is necessary that this employee spend serious time in jail in order to pay for her terrible and inhumane actions.
It is appalling to think that someone who is trusted with someone else’s care and life could be so violently abusive of exactly what she is supposed to be caring for. If this one incidence was caught on video, imagine how many other times this employee may have abused a patient. The fact that this may have been an ongoing abusive relationship is extremely upsetting. This employee must suffer the consequences for her actions and must face a more severe punishment than simply losing her job. Demand that this abusive group home employee be placed in prison for her actions.
Dear Warren Sparrow,
As the president of Options Unlimited Inc., you must make sure that the group home employee who abused a resident is appropriately punished. The video depicting this employee kicking and beating a developmentally disabled resident is extremely disturbing and alarming. If this happened once, it is likely that it has happened many times before. Not only is this type of violence inhumane, but abusing someone who is developmentally disabled is extremely unethical. This patient required extensive assistance bathing and eating, thus it is horrendous that someone who was trusted to care for this patient put their well-being at risk.
While the employee is currently on occupational leave without pay, this is not severe enough punishment. She put a patient’s life in danger, but was only fired from her job. She needs to be placed in prison for the violent and unethical crime she committed. Also, who is to say that she hadn’t abused another patient or won’t continue to abuse other people? In order to keep residents safe and make her suffer the consequences for her crime, this employee must be placed in jail.
