Using the 'Safety' Hook

A little 3-paragraph news story from TV station KAKE in Wichita, KS that I ran across awhile back tells of a lawsuit being filed against the town of Winfield, KS by the Kansas Disability Coalition over inaccessibility -- things the city's never bothered to do to comply with the now almost 16-year-old Americans with Disabilities Act.

But, judging from this April 7 news story, the suit's taking a novel approach: that an inaccessible city simply isn't "safe" for disabled residents.
