It reminds me of a drunk in SF that's been arrested about 400+ times. The drunk doesn't care. He gets a free night in a hotel-jail and some free food. Oh yeah, and free medical. We pay for it with higher taxes and all the police resources that it takes to recycle this guy.
Multiple that by 1000 times a day and you can pat yourself on the back for paying the bill. (I am fuming right now)

it's the civilized thing to do...treat people who have medical needs with respect...provide the needed care when indicated..who decided that the guy needed to be taken to a hospital? initial diagnosis? what was the need for medical care based upon? somebody's ass is gonna be grass...tee hee
