Interesting paramedic and homeless shelter experience

I was transported by the paramedics from the Grace Episcopal Church, located at 116 East Washington in Madison. The paramedics grabbed me by my belt and dragged me up the stairs. This is not the way a normal tax payer would have been treated. While the members of the Fire Department may think the homeless are nothing by a bunch of garbage, we should not be treated that way. We deserve the same humane treatment as ANYONE ELSE. I believe that I was treated differently. I do not think this is right, and the paramedics should be suspended or terminated. Humans sometimes can become homeless. So why then do these people get away with humiliation TACTICS AND DISSERVICE TO THE CLIENT?
