So he discriminated against her because she was disabled? More liberties?


That is not what I said.

I said, we do not know if he violated any law.

It's possible he violated the Disability Act.

OMG. Okay - yeah, your whole thing on this thread is trying to parse vocabulary......

which is derailing the thread, causing unnecessary deflection, and just plain annoying.

The lady was, if not an 'accident' victim, a 'victim' of discrimination. So - that's what it is.
Either "keep up" with the topic, or drop it.

So, it's wrong to make statements about an entire group based on a few individuals?

Huh.

He's just trolling, Annee. We need to ignore it.

Yeah, I know - semantics.

I was thinking maybe "parse" would shut him up.

Like i wrote in other threads in which other liberals in this forum try to proclaim all conservatives are like this man, I guess what you are really saying is that all liberals are like the thugs from Black Lives matter who root for the deaths of police officers, who violently attack anyone who dares not be a liberal and doesn't support their causes... I guess all liberals are like those liberals who abused a Trump supporter who was in a wheelchair, and incite violence everywhere they go...

Wow.

Hate speech at its finest! Go you!!!

So, how about you tell us, "school" us, teach us, inform us, describe to us, elucidate regarding your position, then.

Can you do that? Can you tell us (sans the sarcasm and vitriolic, vengeful, vicious attitude) how it is that you are qualified to judge, describe, and malign "all liberals," and why we should believe your version?

Religion aside, I would find it hard not to drive past a stricken motorist who was sporting a Scottish national party sticker.

How is HER safety, HIS responsibility? What about every other person who passed by her and didn't stop, aren't THEY endangering her then also?

If he worked for a tow truck company then yes. He didn't though, he worked for himself.

Yes he was a Jerk, but that's neither here nor there on the legality of this issue.


So what?? His job is the same either way. If he worked for someone else he'd get fired for not doing his job. But the same actions were taken so he should fire himself.


I know.

Like it makes a difference if he works for himself or someone else.


Of course it makes a difference. If you're working for someone else, that someone else can CHOOSE whether you continue to work for them or not.

The state doesn't have the authority to say you can't work for yourself because you choose not to service someone. Have they usurped that authority in other instances? YES, that doesn't mean they have it.

Let me fill you in. The govt only has the authority that the people grant them...

They have usurped much authority that the people HAVEN'T granted them, that does NOT mean that they have been given it...

Bravo...a man who stands up for his ideals and refuses to service someone with whom he disagrees has failed as a man...

Wow, how far this world has fallen...

I owned my own business. I've also worked for others.

Personal Responsibility is Personal Responsibility.

The tow truck drivers actions have nothing to do with working for himself or someone else.

The consequences might, but that does not change his CHOSEN actions.

Talk about REACHING . . .

I don't know. And I never said there was.

I said its POSSIBLE - - there could be a disability discrimination violation. Again, I DON'T KNOW. And never claimed otherwise.



Disability discrimination occurs when a disabled person is subjected to different or unequal treatment ("discrimination") in any number of situations, when that treatment is based on the individual's disability. The definition of "disability" may vary according to the specifics of a situation and applicable laws, but a major federal law called the Americans with Disabilities Act considers an individual "disabled" if he or she has a physical or mental limitation that limits a "major life activity" such as walking, talking, seeing, and learning. - See more at: civilrights.findlaw.com...

How is HER safety, HIS responsibility?


He was dispatched to assist her; she was not questioned about her political leanings when she requested assistance. She wasn't advised that her political affiliation might adversely affect her ability to receive his services. If it were that important to him he should be asking before he even gets in his truck.

He left her in an unsafe condition when he had an reasonable duty to assist her under the circumstances. If she was using AAA or any road side auto insurance, and he expected to be paid by them (socialist insurance companies LOL), they should revoke his contract. He's paid to tow vehicles, not just "non-socialist" owned vehicles. If he holds a city or county medallion or certification, they should pull it because he's, obviously, unreliable.

You do know what the disability act is right? If you are saying it is possible he violated it then you think he discriminated because she was disabled.

My mom had polio in the 51/52 epidemic, I was 5.

The Disability Act was signed in 1990.

That's growing up with a physically disabled mom who had no legal protection for close to 40 years.

Do you think people were kind and accommodating out of the kindness of their heart?

We suffered the same discrimination's happening today to LGBT.

Oh, yeah - - and my dad ran off because it was too much for him to handle. Single woman in the 50s, try even getting a credit card in your own name.

Got anything else to say?

--------------------------------------------

It depends on what can be proven in court.

Again, I DON'T KNOW if there was any violation, but its POSSIBLE.

Which was my point that you have failed to see, for whatever reason.

The Title of this thread is: Tow Truck Driver Leaves Victim on Side of Road Because "Religion"?

A Poster came in expecting to see that an injured person had been left on the roadside. Why? Because the word VICTIM, when about a person, implies physical injury.

The OP then berated that person, like that person was way off thinking that was even a possibility because the word ambulance was not used.

I have adequately pointed out that the poster was perfectly within reason to expect that due to the word the OP chose to use in the title.

Do I need to explain this slower?

How many times must I repeat it: I DON'T KNOW.

I said, its POSSIBLE there could be a violation. But, I DON'T KNOW.

Time will tell, won't it.

You're trying to argue with me on something I'm not even arguing about.
