 Tommy Larsson, Vårgårda
Tommy Larsson är ganska unik. Han är ett av de fatal vanvårdade som har fått ersättning för sitt lidande under sina barndomsår. Tommy Larsson var ett fosterhems- och institutionsbarn under hela sin uppväxttid. Han blev misshandlad och utsatt för allsköns övergrepp i fosterhemmen och på institutionerna där myndighetspersonerna tvångsplacerade honom.
