Another report of exclusion

An Aiken County (Georgia) woman says she was "kicked out" of a restaurant in Jackson because one of her daughter's, 4-year-old Alyssa, who is autistic, was crying. According to the woman, another customer who was eating in another part of the restaurant, Jackson Police Chief Dennis Rushton, told her that her daughter was "irritating [him], getting on [his] nerves and beginning to make [his] head hurt."
