Create A Federal Law To Place Mandatory Cameras For Individuals Caring For Developmentally Disabled and The Elderly!

The facts are simple. Having cameras present protects not only the residents and/or consumers, but the staff as well.
If we can be filmed on the streets of New York and elsewhere in this country WITHOUT PRIOR PERMISSION, how can it be possible that these insitutions, group homes, and bus companies be permitted to NOT have cameras?
There is no excuse for the neglect and abuse that is put upon people who cannot fend for themselves.
I strongly propose that a law be put into effect to protect the most vulnerable of all.

Please sign this petition because  the time has come for us to do what our politicians are elected to do....be the voice of the people! I don't know of one parent who wouldn't protect his or her disabled child this way, due to his or her "civil rights". This is hogwash and a lame excuse as to why cameras aren't currently being used.
The same thing for the children of elderly parents, or the elderly who are in these places.
We need to stand up and fight for those who cannot advocate for themselves. Abuse is prevalent, and some people are untrained or unfit to have these jobs.
With the numbers of potential adults increasing that will need these services the time to create this law is NOW!

      I hope that everyone realizes that I am also referring to schools that have developmentally and physically disabled as well.

      It is shocking to me that we manage to place red light cameras to catch infractions, and now we are getting cameras placed for school zone speeding----to bring more revenue into the coffers of government.

      It is all good and well to place cameras out there for protection from motor vehicles speeding, and other infractions, then why not place them to protect our most vulnerable population? Simply put, because no direct revenue gets placed into local governments and municipalities.

      Everyone should be outraged at the obvious hypocrisy!

      Please everyone share this petition, and let's get a law in place.

      Preventative measures to avoid continued abuse issues. People should be monitored to ensure proper care and atmosphere is being maintained for the patient's well being!

      I cannot keep my mouth shut when defenseless adults and kids are abused. Someone needs to speak up for them.
