DEDHAM (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - Video of a student restrained and shocked for hours at the Judge Rotenberg Center was played in court on Tuesday after a years-long battle by the center to keep it from the public eye.
The video, which shows former resident Andre McCollins screaming, writhing in pain, and begging for help, was played at the start of McCollins trial against the Canton-based Judge Rotenberg Center.

He should have maybe removed the coat.
That is disgusting! That boy should have every red cent that place has and then some! Terrorists can’t be waterboarded but they do this to a kid?! I don’t care how bad the kid is, you don’t do that.
Welcome to the new Obamaville.
Is this the one where the judge had the button on his bench?
That'd be my call. Besides, isn't McCollins Irish? You know how the only way to calm down a hysterical woman is to slap her? I'm pretty sure that electric shock is the only way to deal with an aggressive Irish. I've been married to an Irish gal for nearly 25 years, and I have to say, it makes sense to me...
If one is “captured” by some folks that can tie you down
and electrocute you and they want you to remove your coat...
Well, let’s think about how important wearing that coat really is.
There are things worth getting electro-zotted for.
Wearing a coat ain’t one of them.
Unless it’s a really nice coat with sentimental value.
I guess my standard for “torture” is different. If you’re in a jail, a mental institution, police custody, or similar legal situation and you’re not being a good little girl or boy, you’re going to experience some unpleasantness. I don’t condone sadism or violent retaliation but if it’s done according to policies and is necessary, I have no problem with it.
Is it “torture” to be robbed at gunpoint? To be raped? All these happen to actual victims. A person getting shocked and restrained for out-of-control behavior is not a victim.
Your put under anesthesia for electroshock therapy. He wasn’t.
Or if the room is really cold.
Or if it’s lined with chinchilla and you aren’t wearing any undies...
If this was done in Club Gitmo the Leftists would have had a fit!
I would have to agree with you on that. Personally sue every one of them that participated in the torture plus the center itself so well that it bankrupts those employees and shuts down the center permanently.
Just wait 'til they find out that the screamer is an Oreo... Mandingo Zulu Shabbyass will be calling for a second distinctly pigmented army.
Since the goal is to incarcerate everybody and give them a life-long criminal record for something or another, I guess you will get your chance.
Where is the father? My bet would be that the mother kicked the boys father out which resulted in a kid with issues that would have been easily dealt with by the father. You see this all the time with families headed by single mothers, the kids grow up with no respect for authority. Then she, way too late, places him in some liberal center to be tortured into compliance simply because she can’t handle him and is now looking for a pay out. Pathetic, its no wonder that most hardened criminals come from families headed by a single mother, you get what you sow.
Was that before or after they put him into a catatonic state by delivering 31 shock treatments over a 7 hour period while tied face down on a table?
Who was the dumbass shrink that signed off on such a treatment plan and has his license been revoked?
