LEES LAW PLEASE could everybody sign my petition to change the laws on vulnerable adults and adults with learning disabilities. When a child turns 18 in the eyes of the law they are classed as an adult, however just because they turn 18 doesnt mean there learning disabilities change, my son has had learning disabilities all his life, which he received special

education and was statemented within the education authorities, he

was an extremely vulnerable adult and I was lees mother/full time carer, the person who has brought him up and protected him from the evil in this world all his life, im the person who knew my sons problems, weaknesses and strengths. My son was taken from me against my wishes to the approval of social services...I expressed serious concerns for my sons health and well being...however my concerns were disregarded by a social worker who met my son twice.The manipulative family who had poisoned his brain were visited by police and social services and to my horror was classed as being fit and well and in no danger...even though this family were well known as bullys of the vulnerable...my rights and concerns were taken away from me and I basically couldnt do a thing about it...without taking the law into my own hands. My absolute nightmare came true in june this year2015 and my son had suffered torture and abuse till he was murdered at the hands of these evil bastards...my son was unrecognisable when I identified him and I strongly believe the law NEEDS CHANGED SO THE FINAL DESICION ISNT IN THE HANDS OF A SICIAL WORKER AND THEY AND OTHERS TAKE CONCERNS SERIOUSLY..AGE OF 18 IS JUST A NUMBER WHEN YOUR TALKING ABOUT A PERSON WHO HAS AND ALWAYS HAD LEARNING DISABILITIES. THE LAW NEEDS CHANGED LEES LAW PLEASE could everybody sign my petition to change the laws on vulnerable adults and adults with learning disabilities.

THE LAW NEEDS CHANGED as most people know lee was one of the kindest,gentle souls you were ever likely to meet,unfortunately that did not apply to everyone,he was subjected to months of physical and emotional abuse by persons he took to be his friends,lee DID NOT have the same mental capacity of an average person of his age,and the learning disabilities that he did have gave him a mental capacity of roughly an 8yr old,making the abuse he was subject to even more sickening and unthinkable,me as his mother who knew him best has been left totally heartbroken that he has been stolen away from me in the way he was,the shocked communities of newcastle and surrounding areas have came together to ensure lees tragic death has not gone unnoticed  DISABILITY HATE CRIME IS WRONG ON SO MANY LEVELS THE LAW NEEDS CHANGED ....(18 IS JUST A NUMBER WHEN SOMEONE HAS A LIFELONG DISABILITY THAT DOESNT CHANGE JUST BECAUSE THEY TURN 18) MY SON WAS LIKE A CHILD AND EXTREMELY VULNERABLE, HE WAS USED AND ABUSED WHICH WAS REPORTED TO SO CALLED PROFESSIONALS SO WHY WAS MY SON LEFT IN DANGER? WHY DID NO ONE LISTEN TO ME ABOUT MY SERIOUS CONCERNS? OTHER PROFESSIONALS HAD THE SAME CONCERNS AS ME....YET FINAL DECISION LAY IN THE HANDS OF A SOCIAL WORKER WHO BARELY KNEW MY SON!
