Cuomo’s Justice Center covers-up most reported sex crimes against the disabled

Thousands of people with disabilities are sexually assaulted within New York State’s extremely dangerous mental health care system every year

Bypassing 911 and local police is how New York State continues to get away with covering-up thousands of sexual assault crimes and deaths annually.”

DELMAR, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, February 21, 2017 / -- Yesterday’s AP News piece titled “New York to pay $3M to family of boy molested at group home” speaks volumes. New York State’s system made up of thousands of State run and privately operated facilities and group homes is rampant with sexual abuse. The award winning New York Times “Abused & Used” investigative reporting series which came our throughout 2011,which was a runner up for a Pulitzer Prize, exposed New York State’s extremely dangerous and deadly system. The very first piece details how a sexual predator was caught in the act and he was still protected and shielded by the State . Here is the extremely disturbing quote from this investigative report; “At a home upstate in Hudson Falls, two days before Christmas in 2006, an employee discovered her supervisor, Ricky W. Sousie, in the bedroom of a severely disabled, 54-year-old woman. Mr. Sousie, a stocky man with wispy hair, was standing between the woman’s legs. His pants were around his ankles, his hand was on her knee and her diaper was pulled down. The police were called, and semen was found on the victim. But the state did not seek to discipline Mr. Sousie. Instead, it transferred him to work at another home.” Pretty graphic, but this type of evil must come out into the light and dramatic steps must be taken to prevent these horrible sex crimes and rapes of disabled men, women, boys and girls whom are extremely vulnerable and in most cases cannot defend themselves. Bypassing 911 and local police is how New York State continues to get away with covering-up thousands of sexual assault crimes and deaths annually.
The New York Times Editorial Board long ago said it very well, the police need to be involved and surveillance cameras are needed as directly quoted, “There is much the governor could do. He could require surveillance cameras in these facilities, just as prisons have them. He could make sure that the police get more involved.” The governor that the NY Times is speaking about in this Editorial is Governor Andrew Cuomo.
So why has Governor Cuomo looked the other way regarding taking the most basic steps to protect the disabled? He told me personally the same day he rolled out his fraudulent Justice Center scheme, he told me that he wanted cameras, but the unions did not. Instead of protecting innocent and extremely vulnerable children and adults with disabilities and those struggling with mental illness, Governor Cuomo chose to protect the unions wishes and their members that are involved in sexual assault crimes, as well as many other types of crimes including criminally negligent homicides.
Governor Cuomo, publicly made a bogus political statement that “I am disabled” in attempts to claim that he fights for the rights of everyone including the disabled in this CBS News story . The fact of the matter is that this is an outright lie. Governor Cuomo and numerous individuals within his administration have taken no significant actions to stop or prevent most of the sexual assault crimes or deaths of the disabled, but instead the exact opposite. After the New York Times “Abused & Used” investigative reporting series Governor Cuomo and Clarence Sundram along with the provider agencies concocted a scheme to rename and relocate the prior State agency headed up by Sundram for close to 20 years. This agency was called the NYS Commission on Quality of Care & Advocacy for persons with Disabilities (CQC) and it has a history of making almost all reported physical and sexual assault crimes and criminally negligent deaths disappear by keeping most from local police, criminal investigations and from County elected District Attorney’s. The State as documented in writing in their own words calls it their “coherent oversight scheme” and their “carefully cultivated understanding.” The agreement the State of New York has with providers to hide and conceal documents and evidence of crimes to protect them and their employees from litigation. It does not get much clearer than what they have documented which undisputedly constitutes a criminal conspiracy, all surrounding obstruction of justice and Medicaid fraud which are all federal crimes.
The CQC was primarily a cover- up or whitewash entity. So to give an appearance only of reform both Governor Cuomo and Clarence Sundram, whom Cuomo hired back to be his special advisor on vulnerable persons after the first NY Times piece came out worked hard to deceive 1,000,000 New Yorkers with disabilities, their families, the media and the general public. They claimed that they took major steps to protect the disabled, when almost everything they claimed was an outright lie. The cover-up scheme can only be successful by keeping almost all physical and sexual assault crimes, injuries, medical distress situations and deaths of our most vulnerable from the 911 call systems so that independent local police and emergency medical personnel are not notified and not able to respond. So for this scheme to continue, but now on steroids, it had to be renamed and everything from all mental health agencies reported internally to Cuomo’s abuse hotline, instead of 911. This keeps virtually almost everything internal unless released by the State, when they choose to throw someone under the bus. So what continues to date, are quite frankly astronomical atrocities and crimes and cover-ups of these crimes and deaths likened to horrific war crimes. Thousands of reports are called into Governor Cuomo’s wrongfully titled Justice Center abuse hotline every month, over 7000 on average and thousands of deaths as well. New York State has no intention of stopping or preventing most of these horrors, but instead cover-up most. It is critical that federal authorities stop these atrocities and that the federal Medicaid dollars, in the billions annually are finally actually used to provide safe care that is free from abuse and neglect. Immediate and direct reporting by all mandated reporters to 911 is vital, as well as the installation of surveillance cameras in all State and private facilities and group homes and all transport vehicles. These are the most basic common sense protection measures that will dramatically reduce these crimes and cover-ups and end decades of discriminatory and deadly practices that deny the disabled 911 emergency services and their constitutional right to “equal protection of laws.”
These are “life or death” and civil rights matters that cost the life of my precious son Jonathan. Jonathan Carey, my son, was developmentally disabled and had autism and he was only 13 when he was killed by his caregivers in 2007 - . Jonathan is one of many hundreds of innocent people with disabilities dying long before they should because of a corrupt system. No longer can Governor Cuomo treat the disabled as sub-human beings denying them their basic equal rights. Stand with us for “equal rights” and “civil rights” for people with disabilities in New York State and throughout our great country by signing our petition at No longer can 911 be bypassed. 911 call systems must be immediately called by all mandated reporters regarding all physical and sexual abuse, gross negligence of care, significant and suspicious injuries and when a person with a disability is in medical distress or has stopped breathing.
