Disabilities and Public's including the Law Enforcement attitudes

Deputy dumps paralyzed man out of wheelchair

Quotes from Brian Sterner who was the victim.
“Hopefully, that’s what will come out of this, that this negative way of dealing with life and people will change.”
“It’s not about one deputy, it’s not about the sheriff, it’s not about the governor. t’s about this ridiculous — ridiculous — down-pression of people across the world, economic or whatever you want to call it. It’s just like Rodney King got beat on the street and I got thrown out of my wheelchair. It happens to people every day. It’s just now there’s cameras that catch it.”
“No question in my mind — I think these types of things occur fairly routinely, and it’s only when you have unequivocal evidence like this that something can be done about it.”

This a prime example that people don't realized that many people are born with or in the course of their life due to some tragic event gets impaired. We face many difficulties in leading even a simple life that "able" people don't have problems with.

Poor guy, It is really kind of stupidest and outrage!
I agree with his statement about Rodney King's situation as similiar his condition is impossbile to get up by wheelchair. It is not seem professional Police Department.

Glad he file complaint against Flordia Police Department.
