Can I just say "disgusting"?

As a former residential provider for people with mental retardation, this is NOT ONLY DIGUSTING BUT ABSURD, CRIMINAL, ETC.

Just another piece of evidence of the "second class" status of diisabled citizens in America. This systemic violence against persons with disabilities is disgusting and untolerable.
