I know from first hand experience how easy it is to discriminate against the disabled but this takes the ridiculous and Kafkaesque to sublime levels.

The story was taken from the Christian Science Monitor, which is a pretty reliable source despite the name.

Printed before the Register article.No mention of the individual concerned but if he was arrested on the same day as this article his story would not be revealed until a later date.If they arrested people for "clapping" a "dragnet" would have pulled anyone in the vicinity,hence i tend to believe this is possible.
