Harrisburg Police Violently Arrest Disabled ADAPT Demonstrators

Protesting Governor Corbett’s and Welfare Secretary Gary Alexander’s policies that take away community based and home based health services, many members from ADAPT were arrested committing civil disobedience in Harrisburg yesterday.  As the video below shows, some of these arrests were violent.  You can see one activist getting pulled out of her wheelchair by her ponytail.  According to “Occupy Carlisle,” an Occupy Wall Street Livestreamer, up to 83 activists were arrested.
