Punches fly in the sky over service dog

This was a deaf couple on an airplane with their service dog. That much I know, and I’ll let the FBI figure out the rest.

But it looks like it could be yet another situation where  anger erupted over people with disabilities legally using their service animals.  Or it could be that the deaf passenger himself instigated the violence, in which case the disability laws should not be used as an excuse.

No matter how or why this sorry situation unfolded, it reminds us that before we let anger take over, we should try to understand what we think we are seeing.

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.
