I think this is the wrong way to raise awarness about young adults with disablities. Even though the young man who has down syndrome was an actor and consented and understood what would be happening I think It would still hurt even if It was "Pretend" I have a Brother who has Down Syndrome and I would never let someone treat him in such a way. I give your son cudos for standing up for his big sister. (Next time just use words don't get your self in trouble for using phisical force.)

I found this hard to watch myself. Although I was encouraged by those that stood up for him, it was VERY hard to watch him being treated that way, even if it was only an actor. :(

Things like that wrench my heart like nothing else. Is this what our children have to face in the world when we're not there to shield them from the public? God bless those few who stand up to the abuse.
