    You clearly have no idea what it is you're talking about. Service dogs are trained not to do that.

    The owner is an asshole. PTSD is a serious mental condition that affects thousands of Americans every year.

    That aside: We are a society that has been trained to isolate victims of psychological illnesses, over diagnose and over medicate. It's all grounded in the amazing ignorance of the general populace and is in part the fault of less than ethical medical community who is willing to make a buck at the expense of gullible people. I have a person in my family with BP-II. It's NOT to be taken lightly. It's not something which disappears because of location. I can imagine what Mr. Glaser felt like after that incident. He probably felt disrespected at first, then hurt and finally isolated for his condition.

    So in conclusion: Fuck Russell Ireland and his ignorant bitch ass.
    Unfortunately there is no shortage of assholes in the world.

    The No Jews or Coloreds libertarians will be in full support of the owner. To them this is no big deal, he and Fido should just move on. To them, that's liberty in action.

    This isn't really a Libertarian thing. It's a common sense thing. You find many an asshole in the world who doesn't think PTSD is a serious condition.

    And you clearly have no idea when you see someone milking their PTSD for attention. The guy called the cops and is hamming it up on TV playing the victim to make this business owner look bad as opposed to making a case for service animals. If this were some old woman who lost her husband and wanted her poodle with her for comfort, people would not be falling over backwards to help her play the victim.

    The great thing about common sense is it is highly overrated for its sensibility and its power of insight.

    To them it doesn't matter either way. It's all about them, always.

    Here we go again. The patron committed what incredible sin? Asking the business owner to adhere to a federal law.

    Re: Restaurant refuses Iraq War Veteran and service dog

    Stuff like this totally pisses me off. We send out troops overseas to be cannon fodder for a bunch of suicidal Islamists, and after serving this country for 21 years, including several active duty stents in war zones, this is how we treat them when they get back home??? I wonder how many times this big-mouth Ireland has put his life on the line for his country. I'd be surprised if the only time he ever gets off his fat ass is to flip pancakes, then head home to grab a beer and watch a ball game without a thought of the kids who have been brain-damaged, traumatized and maimed so he has the freedom to be a big-mouthed lard ass dickwad.
