"Kentucky Equality Federation President Jordan Palmer said the pair "left the facility crying," according (http://articles.sfgate.com/2011-06-15/news/29664429_1_city-pool-city-owned-pool-complaint - broken link) to the Associated Press. "You don't treat people that way, especially someone that is developmentally challenged," he said. "I'm so appalled by that I can't put it into words."
