Disabled veteran knocks MSNBC crew for blocking handicapped spots at polling site

A disabled Air Force veteran this week voiced frustration with an MSNBC news crew for blocking handicapped parking spots outside of a polling site in Houston.

"Went to vote, and found this waiting for us," James Berrie, who has multiple sclerosis, wrote in a widely shared Facebook post. "The only van accessible spot and they’re filming in it. We asked them to move, pointed out how it was wrong, then went to vote, because it takes time to load up. But came out and still there. Not even packing up, still getting ready for their shot."

Berrie told a local CBS News affiliate that the MSNBC crew "kept coming back like, 'we’ll move in two minutes.' "

“'We’ll move in like three minutes. We’re going live. We’ve got a shot. We’re going live in like three minutes. We gotta do this,' and we’re just like, 'No. You have to move. It’s not right. You know it’s not right,'" Berrie told the outlet.

MSNBC reporter Mariana Atencio later apologized on Twitter for the incident.

5. There needs to be a real punishment there.

A fine for MSNBC and the staff that called the shots.
