This really pisses me off! Once again our veterans being discriminated.




It is a shameful act of discrimination for a business to turn away someone who returned home after being at war with battle scars that cannot be visibly seen. But, that’s precisely what happened to one veteran while vacationing in Florida. Not only is it an act of discrimination, but also what this hotel, and many others, did to this veteran is against the law.

It had nothing to do with him being a vet rather just a lady that didn't know the law....
Well unless the video is different then the article reads, some reason videos won't show for me

The guy had a dog, and there was a no pets policy. It had nothing to do with his being a veteran. Sensational headlines are sensational.

Also, "You Won't Believe Why?" This isn't Facebook. Stick to the source material and stop trying to bait members.

A service dog is not a pet! Even with a no pet policy, service dogs must be allowed.

Did you bother to read the entire article? It clearly states that "Walker" is his service dog and he has the proper identification.

Well, they say there's no such thing as bad publicity, but in this case, who in a position of communicating and serving the public even for profit, does not know about service dogs? It isn't just a question of educating the business people, but perhaps in many cases of educating them also about national cultural morals, sensitivities and laws. Good for the cop who escorted him personally to other places, but shame on the five others who said they had no vacancies. Glad he exposed the problem for what it is, ignorance.

Perhaps you should brush up on current laws. This was not a "pet". This was a service dog. The laws there state that ppl with service dogs CANNOT be turned away.......as per THE LAW.

For one thing, he wasn't refused BECAUSE he was a veteran, so cool your jets. He was not discriminated against. She was ignorant of the law, that's all. Much ado about nothing...

I am with the few (oops) this is Yellow Journalism, the clerk is clueless to the law. I work in a hotel and deal with this constantly. Here is the big issue with the law as is, it is illegal to ask for papers or proof of the dogs need, vests can be purchased online. This makes it difficult to know who is being truthful.....

Our property(which is historic) has opted to not even approach those with vest because they tend to get uppity when asked if this is a service animal.....

I have seen this SO much! It's like just asking is an insult. I think any business should be allowed to verify a service dog's credentials. I see so many dogs that I doubt are service dogs because of they way they behave in public accommodations - In the grocery store and restaurants.

Dogs are dogs. This is nothing special. It's just being boosted because veterans are a hot topic as of late. Veteran = instant sympathy points, extra page hits, publicity, etc. It's also extremely easy to turn any average house dog into a service dog with a simple bandana or dog collar from Petsmart. So yeah, good luck catching a not-quite-service dog. People put more effort into breaking laws without getting caught than they do into actually following them.

And being willfully ignorant is no excuse either.

A service animal is not just a animal. It serves a purpose. I guess you would be ok with blind people being refused service as well?

Just another high school troll. Go back to flash mobbing or something equally useless.

There was a person who kept entering our hospital with her 'comfort dog'. I took numerous complaints from patients. I escorted this person on several occasions from the premises.

The last straw was when the dog crapped on the floor. Then it was physical removal. It was harsh. It was also the last time. The result was a patient ban from all DoD healthcare facilities and a bar to all US DoD installations in the ROK. The dog had 'never' been registered. It was a perceived entitlement issue.

Hey ... I get it. If you're blind and you've got a seeing-eye-dog, I'm not going to give you a second glance. But, people are getting stoopit.

Aside for him calling it a pet his post is completely on point....
And it still is a pet, just a pet that provides a service. Especially when it is a therapy dog which that is what I assume this dog was

Hell...I guess seeing eye dogs are pets then. Maybe we should ban them and take them away too. Dogs that are trained to detect epileptic seizures are pets too. Let's do away with them as well.


As you can see, I feel very strongly about this. If the dog is documented, then it is a SERVICE FREAKING ANIMAL!, not a pet.

It doesnt matter if they have a no pets policy, the law clearly states one cannot discriminate against the handicapable or their service animals for any reason.

If you look at my first post I admit the girl did not know the law, which I am not ok with. Never did I say banning any service animal so calm down and don't put words in my month. The lady was in the wrong, 100%
All I said was at the end of the day they are a pet, a pet the offers a service making it a service animal.
Still your pet tho.
