I'm Nadina LaSpina, activist in photo, under arrest & arguing w/cops 4 equal treatment with comrades.
She's disability rts actvst. Been at it for 2+ decades. Boston cops woulda grabbed accessible bus.
I knew you were trouble the first time I saw you!
PROSECUTE MAYOR BLOOMBERG, HE'S THE CRIMINAL
reminds me what happened on May 27th in Barcelona http://bit.ly/rJ3SHa
Way it looked on the feed, is that she was arrested for sitting in an intersection, that NYPD blocked.
"LOOK-LADY, you either WALK-into-the-paddywagon,-OR- We'll-beatSpraytaser your ass."
Maybe we need more wheelchairs in the parks 4 everyone?
The elderly, children, handicap, vet, ex-servicemen have all been assaulted. Where is the justice. Is this what our tax dollar's paying for.
Maybe the police vans aren't handicapped accessible.
really? she doesn't look like she is under arrest...
What a disturbing image.
Once wheelchairs are outlawed, only outlaws will have wheelchairs.
"I ran over their toes. Twice."
arrest her for what? talking? lol
Unbelievable! But almost tragically funny!
I use a wheelchair and trust me...cop DO know how to cuff a wheelchair user. They did not cuz the cameras were on
Call it karma. That's what Bloomberg gets for not making taxis accessible.
