Some people are seriously appalling

Watching this programme on disability hate crime made me feel ashamed of being human. There is no way certain evil behaviour can be explained, let alone excused. Judge for yourself.

Fear of 'the other' fear of the different, fear of the unknown.

Add to this a hearty dose of ignorance and you have a recipe for disaster.

Keep in mind, it is a think from the looks you might get for wearing tight jeans and a bomber jacket and the urge some people have for coming up to you and being disabled and having something extremely different about you.

it is like humans are programmed to fear and loath difference. Like a defence mechanism.

Sometimes I think that there's a Nazi (not in strictly political terms) corner in all of us. Luckily, it only comes out in the case of a tiny minority. But when it does it makes me retch.

How the fuck can anyone at all act like that and actively walk up to a peaceful disabled person and start on them?

I must confess my ignorance. I didn't know the problem was so widespread until I watched Panorama. Credit to Jeremy Vine and all that, but it really turned my day into a miserable one.
