Thank You Logan. That is exactly the sort of thing I was subjected to in a State/County institution, except you might want to imagine a German Concentration camp when you think of what I endured.
There is also the fact that I was dumped there by an Aunt who paid the woman to take me into the place. It was way understaffed and they had the older children "working" (they called it helping) in jobs paid adult staff should have been in. It was only made into an official thing when I was paralyzed and people started to ask about me. As part of the coverup of what happened to me they set a date that was either well before or well after I left the place for foster care to make it impossible to find any records of me if I did manage to recall later in life. They would tell me this stuff because they knew they were going to ECT me again and figured I'd never remember.
Those that were paid were, like the evil cow who took me in for money, morally degenrate scum.
That article describes how these people are convinced of their rightness my abusers knew they were wrong they watched my deterioration like watching a movie. Discussed it, reviwed it debated over whether or when they should switch to another method of abuse to see what it would do to me and so on. they had free reign and no one cared because I was w/o a family to stand up for me.
That my friend is the worst factoid of my life. I learned then that children who were unwanted or w/o family were regarded as legitimate targets even by the "normal" staff. They saw it in a very Spartan and cold way.
This is how I heard it rationalized; people abuse children. They might get my children especially if I don't know who they are. Let them work in a Children's Shelter and let them abuse those children who have no outside protection and they won't abuse my children because they'll have that outlet and we'll know who they are.
Sick I know but also very very New Jersey. If you manage to survive into adulthood you really are able to live anywhere else. Another of the Spartan rationalizations for wrong behavior.
As Mark Twain once quipped, history may not repeat itself, but it does rhyme.
