Dozens of people barred from visiting their aging parents in a state-run nursing home rallied Thursday to demand that officials grant them access to their cooped-up kin. The group gathered outside the Westchester office of state Sen. Pete Harckham (D-Peekskill), whose district covers the New York State Veterans’ Home in Montrose.

“She hates the window visits and to me, a window visit is like looking at an animal in the zoo,” Carol Rydell, who travels with her husband travel to the nursing home every weekend for what officials call a “window visit” with her 94-year-old mom,said. “She just deserves more and I’m petrified that she is going to die alone — and die of a broken heart because her family is not visiting her.”

Elderly man assaulted just outside the White House. He stoically makes his way through the crowd and is attacked, knocked to the ground and knocked out right after passing the massive BLM words plastered to the street. This is the true nature of BLM right now. pic.twitter.com/F89kw0K8sz— Justin Hart (@justin_hart) August 28, 2020
