Dr. King and shocking discrimination that still exists against the disabled

Enough is Enough- Bypassing 911, laws, prosecutors and local courts for the disabled when they are victims of crimes is discrimination in civil rights that would outrage Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. if he were still alive today

Bypassing 911 emergency call centers, laws, prosecutors and courts denies disabled rape victims their civil rights to equal protections of laws

To deny this specific group of people with disabilities immediate 911 emergency first responder services and to deny them “equal protections of laws” is without question discrimination in civil rights”

— Michael Carey – Advocate for people with disabilities and their families

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. began to fight against injustices and unequal treatment of people that happen to have black skin in the mid 50’s, but he spoke out against all forms of discrimination. Today is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. day and we still have a major societal problem of pervasive discrimination in civil rights against our most vulnerable citizens that will absolutely shock you to the core. Disabled women and children are being denied immediate access to 911 emergency medical and police services and assistance in most cases when they are raped in mental health facilities and group homes. The average person when told that this level of discrimination is still happening in 2018, is first stunned, but almost always responds by emphatically saying in an angry tone- “you got be kidding me, how can this be?”

The Jonathan Carey Foundation and its founder Michael Carey have been shouting from the rooftops for many years that people with disabilities are being treated as far lower class citizens and that this gross evil still exists. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.and William Wilberforce, who are heroes and champions for human and civil rights, have inspired Michael Carey to fight day and night to end this egregious and unequal treatment of millions of people with disabilities. To deny a disabled person 911 first responder medical and police services is horrific discrimination in civil rights and it still continues over 60 years later in New York State and throughout the world.

NPR has also just released a scathing investigative reporting series called “Abuse and Betrayed” exposing the scope of the massive sexual assaults and rapes of people with disabilities. According to NPR, who obtained information from the U.S. Department of Justice, people with disabilities are sexually assaulted seven or more times the rate of anyone else.


The discrimination and purposeful acts of keeping sexual assault and rape crimes from 911 and local police is for one purpose, which is to cover-up these most heinous and sickening crimes going on in secret behind closed doors. It goes further than that though, this discrimination allows sexual predators, pedophiles and rapists to escape justice and to remain in a system and to be able to continue to victimize our most vulnerable. It doesn’t get more evil than this, to deny needy and vulnerable women and children 911 emergency help and then to protect the criminals that violate them instead.

“The wide-scale discrimination against our most vulnerable citizens with disabilities must be stopped. To deny this specific group of people with disabilities immediate 911 emergency first responder services and to deny them “equal protections of laws” is without question discrimination in civil rights. Significant actions, which must include surveillance cameras in all facilities and transport vehicles, must be taken to stop and prevent sex crimes and rapes committed against vulnerable women and children. Sexual predators, pedophiles and rapists cannot continue to be protected and shielded from criminal prosecution any longer. People with disabilities are being treated as far lower class citizens, which cannot continue, we must protect our most vulnerable from being victimized and ensure those that harm them are swiftly arrested and prosecuted” – Michael Carey

No longer can 911 call systems, local police and local courts be bypassed and these sex crimes covered-up. 911 call systems must be immediately called by all mandated reporters regarding all sexual assaults and rapes, as well as obviously all other assault crimes, medical emergencies and deaths. Sexual predators; raping women and children with disabilities is an epidemic and these atrocities can easily be dramatically reduced by the installation of cameras and ensuring immediate 911 reporting.

Currently, in New York State, by the directive of Governor Andrew Cuomo, almost all reported sexual assaults and rapes of people with disabilities are internally reported to another one of his agencies and disappear; they are covered-up. These gross injustices must be stopped and all sexual predators, pedophiles and rapists taking advantage of our most vulnerable must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and finally placed on an international sex abuse registry that easily can be created. These are discrimination and civil rights matters similar to what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. fought against for many years. People with disabilities are equally valuable members in society and can no longer be treated as lower class citizens, unworthy of being protected from sexual assaults and rape or treated as unworthy of immediate 911 emergency assistance and services.

Please do what God puts in your heart to do to help stop these atrocities and please donate to support this vital Civil Rights Movement. Thank you.
