Sheriff's Office/State of Florida Condone Discrimination against Disabled
 
                On February 11, 2016, in a stunning blow to the rights of
the disabled, the State Attorney for the 13th Judicial Circuit in Tampa,
Florida released a two sentence statement in response to a criminal
complaint filed with their office as the result of a clear and unequivocal
denial of the rights of a person with a disability accompanied by a service
dog that condones discrimination against the disabled. This two sentence
statement, released by Mark Cox, Chief of Investigations for the state
Attorney, stated.
