Not for Amateurs

An activist group representing disabled persons that attempted to gain attention to its cause by using wheel chair bound people to block downtown Nashville traffic is now complaining that Tennesseans care more about traffic than disabled people, The Tennessean reports. Unfortunately the group misses the point. There is not a lack of caring for the disabled. The public simply has a lack of patience for tactics that are disruptive and that are not commensurate with the problem being addressed.

The group's spokesmen deny that they are professional protesters. As for the organizers, that is certainly true. Their leadership was clearly amateurish.
