Sick, sick, sick
It is an sad fact that among the many hardworking caregivers for the disabled are some bad apples who use their position for the worst. One of the bad apples was working as an aide in Santa Ana when he molested a 17 year old CP student. Instead of cleaning house to insure the well being of all their special students, the school district first tried to hush up the incident. Now that the aide has pleaded guilty, the parents are suing the Santa Ana Unified School District, the school district is going on the offense.
In a filing with the Orange County Superior Court, the attorneys claim that the wheelchair-bound girl "chose to encounter the known risk" of being alone with Gonzalez, that she "consented to" him lifting up her shirt, and that her injuries were the result of her having "failed to use due and reasonable care for her own safety and protection."Considering the fact that the victim is described as having "the mental capacity of a seven-year-old and is confined to a wheelchair" and is unable to speak, it should be clear to the parents and citizens that the Santa Ana Unified School District needs a thorough house cleaning. Perhaps the OC Weekly best summed it up when they wrote,
They also charge her parents with having "negligently, carelessly and recklessly supervised, monitored, controlled and instructed the minor plaintiff so as to legally cause and contribute to her injuries and damages, if any."
Since when did the Santa Ana Unified School District take its directions toward sex abuse from the Diocese of Orange?
