DISABLED MAN KILLED BY DEPUTIES IN MOVIE THEATER BECAUSE HE WOUDN’T LEAVE HIS SEAT

FREDERICK, MD — A mentally handicapped man with Down Syndrome had purchased a ticket to watch a film at the cinema. He liked it so much that he wanted to watch it again, so he stayed in his seat. Three police deputies came to forcibly remove the man. When he didn’t obey their orders, they determined that he was “resisting arrest” and dealt with the threat. Robert Saylor died of asphyxiation over the price of a movie ticket.
