cant comment specifically but I know of PCSOs with sever difficulties walking.

All under the Disability Discrimination Act I believe.

While not believing that anyone should be discriminated against because of a disabilty, common sense has to apply.
If a job requires a lot of walking, then you wouldn't consider someone in a wheelchair.
Just the same as you wouldn't offer a job to someone who is profoundly deaf in a call centre working on a telephone.
There is a job for most people with a physical disability but sometimes you just have to draw a line between capable and incapable.

Theres a PCSO in Warringtonton With a Thalidamide Arm, He gets loads of respect from the Kids. He's not seen as an east target at all. (Read with Extreme Sarcasm).

During a very thrilling course we had a couple of days on employment law. Real examples were given (well we were told they were real, I didn't check) and allegedly a call centre that failed to employ a deaf (possibly blind too, can't remember) person was sued for discrimination; and yes, it was successful.

Because he is from the Caribbean, he is believed to have been given extra help routinely offered to non-white recruits.
Excuse me?? How come non-white recruits routinely get offered extra help? If I was 'non white', I'd be a bit pished off that I had been singled out for remedial. It's implying coloureds are thicker and need special assistance. Certainly doesn't do 'their cause' any good.

Not good at giving a 'high five' to the same kids though :)

Whose idea was it to put all those T's in the word stutter?
The same person whose idea it was to put an 's' in lisp.

I work in the railways,and we adhere strictly to the DDA.
The terms deaf,blind,etc are no longer allowed when describing passenger assistance. The correct terms are "hearing impaired","Visualy Impaired","Speach Impaired",etc.
The term "Spastic" is a definate no no. "Has Learning Difficultys" is more suitable.

I like to describe them as "A wee bit goofy" instead,is that not just a bit nicer?

Does that mean that if somebody cannot dance you must describe them as "rythem impaired" and not"acting like a spastic in a magnet factory"?
