Getting a bit too comfortable on the subway in New York can now get your arrested. According to a report just released by the Police Reform Organizing Project, two Latino men were arrested on May 22nd at 12:11am by NYPD for ‘manspreading’, that is, sitting with their legs too far apart.

J. Orlemann is a Vietnam Veteran with a Bronze Star to his name who hasn’t been able to leave his house after his 14 years of military service, that is until he and his wife got a collie by the name of Barak.
Now the dogs life is in jeopardy and The Orlemanns face a large vet bill of about $5000 while their dog is receiving transfusions and medication for a condition called Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia. The dogs immune system is destroying its red blood cells and probably his plasma as well.
Barak came to the Orlemann’s home when he was a 4 months pup and received training from Battlefield Buddies and as a veteran’s service dog. This means he should be fully covered by the Veterans Administration, but according to Orlemanns the paperwork is stuck in bureaucratic limbo and the next 72 hours are critical.
Barak is only six and a half years of age and just young to just give up without a fight, especially with the tremendous help he’s given our vet with Orlemanns’ PTSD, mobility and diabetic issues.
