The Next Target - The Disabled

Hate Flyers Target The Disabled in Portland OR | Crooks and Liars:
 "Five upper-class neighbourhoods in the city of Portland - Irvington, Arbor Lodge, the SW hills, Laurelhurst and Eliot - have been targeting people with disabilities. 
"There are sixteen people in this neighbourhood who vote and receive cash disability payments," the note read, posted by an anonymous writer known only as Artemis of the wildland, suggesting that those people who receive disability benefits are a menace to the republic. "The names of these people are being posted where they can be seen by taxpayers and the neighbourhood can decide who is truly disabled." The mayor's office is concerned with the underlying threat of violence, the Portland Commission on Disability requests that anyone who has received or seen the flyer to report it, in order to track it. The Portland Police are searching for the author of these hate-mongering flyers, asking anyone who knows who may be behind the flyers to come forward."
