Not all disabilities are visible. Some show through a person's actions and behaviors. Disability cannot be painted with such a broad brush. The American culture and workplace is not welcoming to disabled people. Remember, many people have disabilities, but are able to work. I worked while having a disability for 25 years. Then I became disabled by the disease and could not work full-time or even part-time.

This guy could well be disabled. He's young. With the right help, he may be able to turn himself around and lead a more productive life. Sometimes getting into the legal system is the key to getting the right help.

"Exactly....once you break the law one has no rights."

Yes you do. You have the right to remain silent. You have the right to counsel. You have the right to a trial by a jury of your peers. You have the right to confront your accusers.

Rosa Parks broke the law. She had no rights? The Sons of Liberty broke the law. They had no rights?

Are you Leonid Brezhnev's first cousin?

He is "disabled', but it is no problem for him to commit B & E. Why can't he do telemarketing or work at Wal-Mart? The main disablity in this country is Laziness.

This man needs to be taken off of disability and made go to work. To many idle criminals in this area. Bring back the CCC and make the jobless criminials work.

Well, J Burnworth said it all. Now our judicial system needs to apply this statement to anyone that appears in front of them. Washington County Common Pleas Court Judge Randall Burnworth hesitantly allowed Hines to attend his dental appointment, but denied his request for an intermittent sentence.

"One of the consequences of committing a crime is not being able to go and get benefits," he said.

Exactly....once you break the law one has no rights.

What a joke!!! The concessions teardrop boy asked for are absurd. Another gutless sentence for burglarizing a home yet again. 2 months for breaking, entering and stealing. You have got to be kidding me.

.....and its great to know he is collecting disability even though he isn't too disabled to work as a criminal.
