Posting by Joe Shapiro describes a Senseless Courtroom Tragedy.

 

Joe Shapiro  just shared an astonishing  and horrendous news article on Facebook. It’s about a female inmate who appeared in court to answer criminal charges. She had a respiratory disease and had asked the judge to let her use her breathing apparatus. But the judge, astonishingly, denied her request. A few days later, she died.

The “I can’t breathe” rallying cry would be ominously appropriate here, too.

I am an attorney with a disability, and I co-teach a class on disability law. But because laws are just words, I would like to learn and convey more of the real world of living with a disability in the 21st Century.
