Help disabled children get justice for assult cases (Damien' s Law)

This petition had 2,078 supporters

Roughly 2 weeks ago my friends disabled son was outside, one of his mom's boyfriends friends ask 13 year old Damien if he wanted to fight, wrestle. Having done it many times he said yes. The adult pushed him hit his head off the ground of a parking garage twice and kicked him in his legs. Damien wears braces on his legs for cerebral palsy. 

After he got in side and told his mom what happened and brought a witness with him, she called the police.

Long story short because Damian was over 10 years old the guy only got a summons to court. My goal is to get the law changed and to be arrested while you await your court date for assult on any age disabled child. 

The officer that came and did the report agreed this wasn't right and the guy should have been arrested, I need your help to get this changed! Thank you
