I see they didn't use a coaster in the cover pic.

So in addition to ride several park coasters he also took a trip on Escape from Pompeii. Can we keep the park controversy free for at least one year please!

I'm not taking any sides here, but I feel as though the attacks on him are a bit sensational. Frankly, I don't see riding most of those coasters to be something that someone with chronic pain categorically cant enjoy. I have a mild knee condition and a fairly severe shoulder condition and I can marathon coasters no problem.

TLDR: this article reads as "disabled man does something, world is shocked."

Let me know if my train of thought is off...

Looking at the claims in the article, it's really hard to say. Riding a coaster in itself isn't strenuous to the body, but getting in some coasters might prove difficult to someone with the claims he made.

To me the entire article seems a bit presumptuous. What makes them experts on these matters?

One thing to keep in mind is that this is a tabloid and they make money off of sensationalizing news. This person could be very well be experiencing the symptoms he states and still enjoy a day at a theme park. Fuck, theme parks do whatever they can to try to accommodate people with disabilities, it's called the "Americans with Disabilities Act".

I, personally, wouldn't take anything seriously published on the cover of the NY Daily News.

I don't know enough about printed publications to know if this or that is credible...a true millennial!

Just the words "Roller-Coasting" screams ignorance.

Where? Behind the rabbit?

The issue at hand isn't necessarily of the medical condition alone from what I am gathering. It's more the fact he's sued his way into a pension and SSI so he can sit home, enjoy life, do side jobs tax free all on the tax payers dime all without working.

That's just my mere impression.

“He states that even the slightest tilt, such as brushing his teeth or bending forward, causes pain,” according to the 2008 ruling by the NYPD Medical Board which approved the disability.
