Disabled, Discarded and Disinformed

Funny things have been happenning in how we treat the intellectually disabled in Australia lately. Most intellectually disabled look like the majority of people around you and I, but they act in ways we never do. In most cases an intellectuall disablity does not betray itself in the physical appearence of a person but through their actions. Should the law enforcements be able to reconize such a person ? are they trained to handle such situations/people?
Wrongfully arresting and allegedly beating them or treating them as aliens is never an option in a civilisation. So what are we becomming ? unaustralian ? What becomes of a nation that treats it's citizens in this manner?
