You too East. If they can get away with abusing people, they will.

My heart breaks for this poor veteran and his family. Surely these lowlifes should be charged with manslaughter!

As for blaming a particular race, it's not helpful, is it. I get people are angry, but it's a people thing, a heartless internet age thing, a lack of God thing, not a race thing.

No, you are choosing to see it as a “it’s not us it’s them” thing. Racism is real. Segregation is real. Discrimination is real. And society as a whole has to comes to term with the fact that it is completely embedded in all aspects of modern society. i Served in the Air Force for 14 years and I worked side by side with great human beings of all colors who didn’t care what color skin the next had. You know why? Because there was a high level of emotional intelligence taught and learned by us all.

The lack of intelligence and emotional intelligence is what’s to blame. Not different cultures, or ethnicities. None of that matters. Intelligence is lacking. Combined with a complete and total disconnect from reality compliments of cell phones, social media, computers and any other form of new age technology that makes it so you can “swipe left” your problems away rather than dealing with face to face confrontation. But technology has only accelerated the lack of humanity in some people and the level of racism in others.

Bad people have been around for a long time. Hitler, was a bad person. Charles Manson was a bad person. Attila the Hun, Genghis Khan, Jeffery Dahmer, Stalin, Elizabeth Bathory, Pol Pot, Joseph Kony...the list goes on and they are of all colors and all genders.

Hell, look at mass murders in America. Look at the list...is that a white problem? Or a societal one?

The more connected we become online, the less connected we become in real life. And the less connected we are in reality, then the easier it is to make ignorant assumptions and say ignorant things online. The easier it is to commit atrocious crimes...because of the lack of that emotional connection. That emotional intelligence. That rooted intelligence with getting to know your neighbor and being a part of a real community that strives to better. It’s not a black thing. As long as you keep saying that, and others like you keep saying that, then we will only continue to fail as a society.

Thanks for sharing your experiences. Unfortunately, this incident is just the tip of the iceberg.

Believe it or not, some families don't put their loved ones in the best Nursing Homes, because it would burn through their inheritance too fast.

My inheritance went to a nursing home, they took millions, for a few years my old man was stuck in his room with machines to help him breath and swallow, he didn't recognize anyone,reminded me of the Metallica song "one".

My sister cared for him till it was too much, he was playing with his poop and would escape and get lost. Pretty awful state of affairs, the home only turned off the machines when he ran out of money.

There is always two sides to that equation.

That's so true. Loved Ones who have the medical power-of-attorney need to use good common sense with these matters.

I took care of my Dad as long as I could here at my house this past Spring, with the assistance of visiting nurses. But eventually, we had to check him into a hospice center, where they kept him comfortable and pain-free until death.

I would say people become nasty assholes because they feel they were thrown under the bus.


I think the nasty asshole is there all along, and what we witness is the aftermath when bad things happen to them.

Nurses burn out just like good cops burn out

I worked as a nurse and some of my coworkers abused wine and pills

In any case nurses work for big pharma since 80 % of what they do is pills pills pills creams and more pills

There are certain people in life who take no pride or professionalism in their job, they just are 'workin for da dollar' and sadly many are in the health service, I witnessed people like this in the nursing home my mother died from dementia in. Mostly night staff, they had totally no care at all for the people they were in charge of, here in the UK its quite common for them to be African ladies and they tended to be the most lazy staff there. My daughter who was suffering anorexia had them as night staff in the specialist hospital, generally they would find a spot and sleep or chat endlessly in African while ignoring work.

This isn't a racial selection, its a factual description of who was doing the care and how low the quality of work was, not even hitting the bare minimum of care. It just seemed to be the night staff, I presume they went for that job because it would be an easy gig but when you put lives at risk or in this case almost assist in death then you should not just be handing their licenses in like the two in the video, you should be facing charges of neglect and even manslaughter.

To laugh at a dying person is just as low as possible..

because you want others to think you are a good person , but you really just want power over other people!

there are actually far too many people feigning compassion in order to have control over others
from social workers to nurses you name it they exist in every place where people are trained to care for others or teach others
there are those that just cant help themselves and want to control or manipulate others but mostly because they too have suffered abuse at some stage in their lives.

it's sickening that there are so many damaged people on earth and the only way we can fix that is by being compassionate and giving love to others and do it with patience and understanding .

One person at a time

That is terrible and sickening. I am certain that similar, and worse, things happen that we never know about.
Just wait 15 years till the obama taught millennials are running care taking efforts with their Godless views. They won't ask who the (bell tolls) respirator cries for it cries out for thee.

Jeez, there's so much wrong with your post it's hard to know where to begin....

First, Obama didn't "teach" millennials.

Second, please show me your evidence that people with "Godless views" (whatever those are -- you could stand to provide a definition here.. I mean, are you talking about atheists?) are less compassionate than people with "Godly views."

Christians don't have the market cornered on morality and compassion, if that's what you're arguing. And throwing Obama into the mix seems like an attempt to needlessly politicize things.

You are fooling yourself into believing that majorities are good. In all of creation, insect, lower animals, and mankind will compete as groups for position and resources. FACT. Now with the media playing the social teacher or preacher, we have racial tensions at a high. Because I am white and love my Constitution I now am a white nationalist. HMMMMM. What we have here is the powers that be are creating a cauldron of social destruction. Truths are not told. I live in an area where the black population was rather low. Now thanks to Obama and his Secretary of Housing, Julian Castro, urban blacks are given more money to move into white suburbs. Now be a parent for a moment. Moving these kids into the white suburbs, i.e. apartments, subjects them to terrible frustration. I live in an area where kids on their 16th birthdays
get Mercedes Benzes, BMW's and 5.0 Mustangs for their birthdays. How must these children feel? They will probably never see those in their lifetimes. To do it they integrate illegal activity to keep up. My home was broken into 3 years ago. Thanks to alarm systems they got nothing. Selling drugs is a faster track. Need I say more.
My point in all this is things are not going to get better. Birds of a feather stick together. Do any of you see whites rioting and burning businesses? NO. There are inescapable patterns only leftist Marxist sympathizers can seem to overlook. Facts hurt sometimes but if not faced further social manipulation occurs.
Lastly by integrating and lowering standards, also known as affirmative action, we have dumbed down white children.
Look at this sick hip hop music. I watch some white kids reduce themselves to this low level of culture. Bill Cosby ruined himself but his message to young black people was spot on. Get an education and father your children. That is work and government does not give handouts for hard responsible work. Take the path of least resistance sire children let mom collect while men sell drugs.
I am not racist but I am prejudiced. Racism is out right pure hatred because of color or ethnicity. Prejudiced is prejudging. I will continue to be prejudiced until I see a majority start taking responsibility to bring up their kind without help from left twisting media with their excuses. There are many successful black people who EARNED their way. White privilege is a Marxist term to destroy white folks. Caucasians have hundreds if not thousands of years head start on intellect. Destroy that we destroy ourselves. I know I will be criticized to no end by those on this site that roll on the floor and KUM BA YA with the excusatory left. So be it. Truth hurts and when you paint yourself into a corner with excuses you create more discontent and it flowers out exponentially. Truth is a wall. You hit it then deal with it.
One last note. My son said some professor compared white privilege to a simple test. All in a group of races are to compete in a race for a 100$ bill. White kids get bigger allowances and have more available cash so they get a 10 step advantage. There were more advantages but you see my point. Well this professor failed to take into account Basic educational opportunity grants, Pell Grants, and other educational grants more likely to go to blacks than whites. I can attest as I could not get one because my parents made to much money. I PAID OFF STUDENT LOANS THAT TOOK ME 20 YEARS!! So could you not say they have a 20 step advantage because to be encumbered for 20 years is a lot. My children got some scholarships that amounted to nothing. My wife and I paid the entirety of college for 4 children. I am 60 years old and now working toward retirement. When I say paid for college I refer to tuition, living expenses, car insurance, fun money, and more. Why? Because their future is that important to me!! My reward? They are all now OWNING their own homes and are not encumbered into oblivion. I sleep good at night. So when you excusatory left leaning MF's chide my post what are you? Tapping keyboards for social justice while you get your disability checks. Quit complaining and stop forming excuses. It is a cruel damn world with a maze of injustice. Navigate and deal with it!!

P.S. BTW those nurses let him die because he is white. Excuse that one away.

I have spent more than my fair share of time in rehab facilities. I have some strong opinions about them.

First, call me racist bigot whatever your want but I am going to tell the truth based on my own experience. if you caregivers are the same race as you, you stand a decent chance of getting decent care. If you are white and your caregivers are not, sucks to be you. It was so painfully obvious when the black crew was working that I was nothing more than an inconvenience. There was one point where I was genuinely in distress and nearly transferred to an Er. During that whole episode my caregivers actually laughed at how worried I was about my own health. One of them actually said, "For $8 dollars an hour this is as worried as I am going to get."

Never again. I will suffer at home and deal with whatever happens to me but I will never subject myself to that kind of treatment again. And with groups like antifa and the blm this is only going to get worse. Black people are openly attacking white people in the streets and no one dares to call it a hate crime. You cant solve a problem you wont even talk about.

This is indeed the correct attitude to have!

We need open unbiased discussion, but we cant because everyone wants it to be a safe space echo chamber

If I'd said another profession, would that have worked better for you?


How about internet forum moderator or say nothing at all.



How about moderators were members first and remain so despite doing the work required to keep ATS a civil place to discuss whatever you like. There is no compensation unless you consider having members taking cheap shots a perk. We do it because we love this place and want to see it retain all the great things we found worth volunteering our time for. If you think someone on staff is being unfair to you there's even a place for that; complaints. How about comment there if you have an issue and not in thread please.

As for the attitudes of the nurses it's amazing how their recollection changes after being busted on tape. After abusive people I find liars among the lowest of our kind. I wouldn't want her building my house or moderating here. I think she may have what it takes to be a guard in a women's penitentiary though.
