Wheelchair Discrimination At A NYC Club?

Watch what happens to this wheelchair user at Swing 46 Club in New York City:






"Fred" posted this explanation together with the video on Youtube:



This was going to be a nice video of me dancing after coming 3500 miles from
England to visit what I was told was the best swing/lindy dance venue in
Manhatten. Unfortunatly the owner (John), took a dislike to having someone with
a disability dancing in his club so this video was cut short and I left his half
empty venue, shocked and upset.


I wrote to both Fred, the wheelchair user as well as Judith, the owner of the nightclub. I got statements from both. Then I asked a disability lawyer for his thoughts. Read what Fred, Judith and the lawyer have to say in this interview about disability law.
