On June 21, 2020 in Columbus, Ohio, a man with a physical disability had his two prosthetic limbs forcibly removed from his legs and was physically attacked by police while participating in a peaceful protest.  This clear violation of the individual's constitutional rights and disability rights stripped him of dignity and bodily autonomy.  Mayor Andrew J. Ginther, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Compliance Officer Zane D. Jones, the City of Columbus, and the Columbus Division of Police need to identify and fire all involved police officers immediately.

Any future similar violations towards people with disabilities will be done with clear knowledge of its illegality and will indicate the complicity of all who obstruct harsh and swift accountability against the individuals involved.  The disability community is the largest minority in your jurisdiction and the United States.  They are voters and consumers.  There will be unending consequences to ignoring their cries for enforcement of their legal rights.
