Now I can recognize a downs syndrome kid pretty easily tho some are more obvious than others. One thing they all seem to have is a sweet nature.
Why in the world did they handcuff then throw him face first on the ground? I suspect it was to injure him a bit and show who was boss as if a downs kid needed to be shown.
I would just about bet that I could have gotten the kid out of there with no physical force at all, except maybe very minimal.
They didn't. According to the article author:
"The three security guards handcuffed Saylor and threw his face on the ground ....."
Reads as if they removed his face.
In seriousness and sadness, RIP Robert
