A Jerusalemite ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (10.31.12)
Just a pity that it took so long to "collect the evidence". A whole year ?!? And now they are dependent on the evidence of the victims - who are mentally disabled? Seems like there are still a lot of questions about the whole investigations...
2. I have a great idea. If this proves to be
unfortunately true, let's all good and normal people vomit on this disgusting so-called medical team,that is, on top of what the law is going to prepare for them.
3. I wonder how Gideon Levy will spin this one
zionist forever   (10.31.12)
4. Alot of sickos
Zivron   (10.31.12)
There are a lot of sickos in power yin Israel in Arab lands it's likely much worse. Full respect yfor the police force who nabbed the perpetrators.
5. A nest of sadists staff
Bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (10.31.12)
who should have their pictures on every bus, airport, newspapers and media in all of Israel and never be able to be released from jail. Monsters.
6. An abuse aside for a while ,...
split ,   US   (10.31.12)
100 employees for 160 patients in private enterprise? Something smells bad right there, it looks like the taxpayer is paying for it and being ripped off a big time ,...
7. Mandatory Reporting Laws
mea   (10.31.12)
In the US, there are mandatory reporting laws for vulnerable persons including patients, children, students, etc. Any time an adult in a professional situation suspects (that's the key word) abuse may be accruing they are mandated to report it. Failure to do so has serious ramifications. I suggest Israel look into this legislation which has done lots to stop the abuse of vulnerable persons--especially the mentally ill.
8. It really doesn't get ....
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.01.12)
... much worse than this. Shameful. Consign the perpetrators to jail and, for heaven's sake, lose the key. Perhaps it wouldn't hurt to visit a little bit of their treatment of others upon them. It's a hard lesson, to be sure, but it needs to be learned.
9. demanding a law for cameras
zabarbie ,   haifa   (11.01.12)
I am working in a hostel of disabled people which has eye cams in each room.What I can't understand :Why isn't there a law that each public room of institutions needs videocameras installed?!!! I hope the bastards, and especially the director if proven guilty gets the hashest legal punishment there is and especially hope that each name of the responsible will be published in public!
