MIAMI (CBSMiami) – When asked why he would risk his job and speak publicly, Detective Thomas Fiore considered the question carefully before answering.

“People are dying,” he finally said, “and there are so many things that are going on there that people need to know about.”

Fiore, a criminal investigator for the VA police department in South Florida, contacted CBS4 News hoping to shed light on what he considers a culture of cover-ups and bureaucratic neglect. Among his charges: Drug dealing on the hospital grounds is a daily occurrence.

“Anything from your standard prescription drugs like OxyContin, Vicodin, Percocet, and of course marijuana, coc aine, heroin, I’ve come across them all,” he explained.

Even inside the hospital, he says he was stopped from doing his job –

Why am I not surprised ?

The other Whistleblower is getting harassed and was demoted in the Saint Louis VA hospital...all of them are true heros.

There will probably be many more soon when Congress holds hearings.

From your link

Mathews was head of psychiatry at the VA before he came forward to say that doctors were treating only half the mental health patients they had the capacity to handle.

After, he says he was promptly removed from his position and specifically instructed not to contact any of the psychiatrists he was leading.


There has always been, to some extent, laziness or even corruption, but it does seem to have gotten worse in almost every corner one might look... Or maybe the reporting is better with the internet?
