The appalling response of Washington DC police to the protests of a group of disabled people at a Senator’s office over the health care bill, is nothing short of shocking. NO stranger can PULL a person in a wheelchair out of that chair without causing some pain or damage. There is medical protocol for lifting (not yanking) someone from a chair and placing them elsewhere. If this video doesn’t make you sick, you are one, cold hearted bastard.
The photo of a woman in a wheelchair handcuffed behind, as if she poses a danger to anyone, will remain with me for a long time.
This video shows the history of the Disabled Rights Movement and the great work they continue to do.
This link tells the story of a family with a severely disabled child who would be badly impacted if this health care bill passes.
