A line in the petition letter reads:

"This blatant disregard for the wellbeing of disabled individuals is detestable and disgusting."

Not only that, with which I fully agree.

But also this perversion of justice enables the perpetrators to go free, encouraging them to rape and abuse over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and again.

Have I made my point?

What kind of pervert allows and by default encourages this kind of behaviour among those ostensibly caring for the very needy?

How can Terri Delgadillo still be holding this office?

How high up the chain of command does this perversion go?

Is the governor of California the one who should be stopping this buck, or do we need to call it to POTUS' attention? I refuse to believe that he would condone it if he knew about it.

I signed the petition, but this should not be a subject for a petition.

IT SHOULD BE A SUBJECT FOR A VERY PUBLIC PROSECUTION, WITH ENABLER TERRI DELGADILLO STANDING IN THE DOCK, shorn of all authority, in company with all perpetrators s/he (?) has enabled by looking the other way.

I certainly hope it's not a case of enjoying the peepshow !

These women aren't so 'mentally disabled' that they don't understand what's happening to their bodies! I know this may sound strange but, never underestimate the mentality of the mentally disabled! So signed, ty Rose.

This betrayal of trust is on a par with child abuse and animal abuse. No punishment would be enough for these sick evil monsters. S&N.

Having a mother who is in care and 100% dependent on her caregivers,and knowing the potential for abuse even in the elderly, this still, nonetheless shocks me every time I hear of it. Those that prey on the vulnerabilities of people with disabilities are not fit to be called human beings.

Hope all outraged commenters pass this through their social networking system. All those having disabled and/or older family members/friends ... and those considered unworthy of dignity ... need the muscle that can be flexed by combined numbers of like-minded people. Let's go get 'em. It begins with me.

Signed. That is the underlying problem with all societies. People are always trying to take advantage of those weaker members of society or those with less power. We are supposed to lift each other up, not benefit at the expense of someone else.
