literal, actual modern slavery in the US 

"Judge R. Bryan Harwell sentenced 54-year-old Bobby Paul Edwards to 10 years in federal prison ... Edwards, who managed his family’s restaurant, forced Chris Smith, an intellectually disabled black man, to work for free and live in a small room behind the restaurant. ... Edwards physically abused Smith for at least 17 years, including whipping Smith with a belt, beating him with pots and pans and even burning him with hot grease."

allcaps & a CW request re: literal, actual modern slavery in the US 

@noelle on the one hand, restorative and rehabilitative justice are things I definitely believe in.

on the other hand, as someone who Is Not Neurotypical At All?

JUST TEN FUCKING YEARS

THAT ETHICALLY BANKRUPT PILE OF MEDICAL WASTE

JUSTICE IS BLIND BECAUSE CAPITALISM PUT OUT HER EYES

also the cw request: in the future could you CW abuse of neurodivergent people somehow? (sorry for redraft, The Rage took hold.)
