ADAPT protests at home of FDA director against electroshock torture of autistic people

Beginning on the weekend of March 10-11, ADAPT has been camping out in front of FDA Director Dr. Scott Gottlieb's home. Things got a little hot on the evening of March 11 as ADAPT occupied the circular driveway, and MPD showed up to push them back. ADAPT is there to demand the FDA ban the use of electroshock aversive "therapy" against autistic children and adults at the Judge Rotenberg "Educational" Center.
