People are abused by professionals on a daily basis, mistreated by people with power and they have no idea of who they turn to when this happens. They have their rights purposefully ingored, they are harmed by the people who are they are supposed to be taking care of them and they are made to suffer by a system that is set up to protect them. Authorities are misusing their powers for personal gain and using intimidation tatics to get people to do what they want. They are placing unrealistic expectations on people setting them up to fail and controlling where they can go and who they can see. They deprive them of freedom of choice, opnion and view, they involuntarily confine people and use unlawful restraint. They remove thier communication aids, take away their personal belongings and stop access to recreational activities.
