    Can't tell.  Hafta wait for the full story.
    But just 'cause someone is handicapped doesn't mean they can't be effective either in a good way or a bad way.
    Just look at Obama.  He's got no common sense, but he inflicts much damage on American society all the time.

    In other words, you want to know what his political beliefs are before you decide.

      Dragging someone from a wheelchair is never a great idea.  You move the person and the chair as a unit.

        Exactly, they could do great damage to that person, even possible kill them. They didn't know his complete condition.

      That would be helpful, yes.  Liberals are usually the troublemakers these days for sure; that's just a fact.

    ...interesting....not sure why they would have bothered removing him from his wheelchair...or he was knocked out by accident...too many people in the way....and the vid doesn't show what happened after....he does make a point about how he could not have possibly been a physical threat....protests do get out of hand unfortunately......
