It takes a retarded person – in terms of moral development – to berate a mentally handicapped person and it takes an intellectually retarded person to not understand that a guy with Down Syndrome is probably not out driving a car committing crimes.
It takes – in other words – an armed government worker.
Such a one – several of them – Hut! Hut! Hutted! the home of Connecticut resident Rebecca Roy, supposedly looking for the fleeing driver of a Honda CR-V vaguely similar to the one owned by Roy. They drew a bead on Roy’s brother as the suspect, despite Roy’s pointing out (as if it were necessary to point it out) that her brother suffers from Down Syndrome and isn’t able to drive.
“He cannot read well,” Rebecca wrote in a Facebook post describing the incident. “He is not capable of moving deftly enough to steal a street sign, nor does he have any motive to do so. My mother and I explained this to the (AGW) who by now had been joined by three additional (AGWs) and four total squad cars. Even so, they said they would need to ask my brother some questions.”
This went on for some time before the ordeal was finally concluded.
And they – the AGWs – wonder why they’re feared and loathed. It has little to do with race – and everything to do with arrogance, entitlement, bullying and general bovine asinine stupidity.
