Recently, NYS Senator Martin Golden sponsored S 3655-A, a bill which would prohibit any student from receiving funding for the Judge Rotenberg Center, as if even one student receives an aversive, even students without aversives cannot receive funding. Aversives saved my brother's life. According to articles in the NY Post, NY Daily News and NY Times, Senator Golden was a passenger in a car. The car drove in a bike lane to get around traffic, and Senator Golden wanted to pull over a bicyclist, Mr. Brian Howard, who was blocking him, so stated he was a police officer, displayed a fake placard and threatened to take him to the precinct. When the bicyclist tried to film him, the car drove onto oncoming traffic and passed a traffic light. That car has a history of more than 30 traffic violations including running red lights and speeding in school zones. In 2005, Senator Golden ran over a 74 year old woman. Just as he faked being a police officer, in this proposed legislation, he fakes he is doing this out of concern for individuals with special needs.
