I Know I’m in a Handicapped Spot, but I’ll Only Be 2 Minutes

 NOVEMBER 13, 2018   BY ED TOBIAS

I’m writing again about someone with MS who was blocked from a handicapped parking spot by someone who isn’t handicapped. I know, it happens all the time. But this time was a little different. The spot was blocked by a television news crew. And that struck a nerve (I’ll tell you why shortly).





James Berrie is the fellow with MS. When he and his wife Sarah went to vote earlier this month in the Houston area, they found that the only van-accessible spot was blocked by a reporter and her crew from MSNBC. The TV crew needed to be in a spot that would show the polling place in the background as reporter Mariana Atencio did her live shot. The handicapped spot was in a perfect location for that.
Here’s how Berrie continued the story on his Facebook page: “We asked them to move, pointed out how it was wrong, then went to vote, because it takes time to load up.”
