A doctor who was working the rounds at New Orleans’ Memorial Medical Center during Hurricane Katrina has admitted euthanizing patients during a crucial shortage of energy and supplies at the hospital.

Despite the revelations, the state prosecution service in Louisiana says it will not re-open an investigation into the matter, the Associated Press

The doctor’s admission comes on the fourth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina making landfall on the Gulf Coast, an event that would lead to the death of more than 1,000 people and the displacement of a city of one million.

Okay, here's my point to be made regarding this OP/Thread/Article! We are so busy arguing with eachother over politics, religion, what is racist or not and weather Bill Maher is correct about America being a country of STUPID people. And here it is that a doctor admits that he euthanized victoms of Katrina instead of doing everthing in his powers to stand by his oath to keep people alive.

Now, some of you will say that a curtain percentage of people injured in the Hurricane might have been better off but that is not the arguement or the point, believe it or not that decision should always be left up to the person and the family.

Which brings us to my real anger about this article, they don't plan to do another investigation so he gets to walk away believing he did nothing wrong while it's still murder and we are going to be facing another simular crisis with the Swine Flu Vaccinations. It's not about weather you believe that Vaccinations are good or not? it's about our right to say if we are willing to take the vaccine without being infected or not... It's clear that this doctor is guilty of eugentics and euthanasia but so is our government for doing nothing about it!

What say you?

Im sure if swine flu really comes back strong and people begin to be hospitalized ICU begins to over flow life support and ventilators are running out you will have doctors who will start saying we did all we could but we need our ventilator and ICU bed back your insurance will no longer cover the cost.

So he ended life because supplies ran short.

Gee, nothing like that will never happen under Obamacare, will it?

I won't defend you bringing Obamacare into this because you make a good point. The bottomline here is that the truth always comes out in the end and the truth in this case "Katrina" is that Doctors knowingly, purposely and willfully KILLED people and allowed many to die and nothing will be done about it or learned from it except from those of us who wish to pay attention!!!!!

Agreed. Saw a correlation and ran with it.

The REASON why he stated he did it is what got to me.

What would you rather had happened to those poor people there who could not get out? Would you rather the Dr. die with them? Or would you rather they were left there to die in the mud? Can you imagine the horror that would be? Lying in a bed, not able to help yourself, all sane people having already left, alone, to suffocate in water and mud as it inched up your face?

I don't know what you wanted to happen? Obviously the best thing would have been a pre arranged deal where the whole town was evacuated, sick and dying included. But it didn't happen like that. There were bodies IN THE STREET AND DITCHES - dead people, all over, bloated and swollen. It was a horrible situation.

No doubt, I totally understand the correlation but as I stated at the beginning of my thread, we get so angry with eachother for out points of view on so many different topics "Politics & Religion" that who we really should be arguing with is the authorities. This plus the video of the woman being stripped searched wrongfully when she was the victom reporting a crime has just set my night off... I am so freaken pissed lol

I was ready to say he probably did what he had to do. If there were limited supplies in a horrible situation he had to make a choice.

Then I read the article and he acts as if he's happy about his choice.

Quote from article.


‘‘I gave her medicine so I could get rid of her faster, get the nurses off the floor.’’


Seems a bit harsh to me, no remorse, he doesn't even feel bad about it.

Let's see, what would I want if I was in all those positions you stated and still alive??? Hmmm, I would wont to live regardless of how my life would have ended up. Your ignoring the fact that he gave med's that killed to people who were recovered so that they could make more room for others... No offense but we agree to disagree and I hope it's not you that they determine should be put to death "Lets see" just because they need room for others.

And YES they should have let the people cross state lines to evacuate the area instead of keeping those who lost their homes sleeping amongst died bodies... I remember that Fox footage of the Military blocking people trying to cross to safer areas but they wouldn't let them!!!!! WOW

And just how was he supposed to get a hold of the family?
Where was the family?

I dont think he enjoyed putting them down, however i believe it was mercy.

Imagine you needing a ventilator or kidney machine and it didnt work. You would die a slow painful death.

Is that better?

What should he have done?

Exactly, thank you for honestly pointing that out!!! It is a very difficult decision weather people live or dies but he truly isn't bothered at all by his actions and the fact that he would say that with such pride is why those who try to pass this off as nothing more then "he did what he had to do" are simply INSANE!

We agree to disagree, he does not feel remorse or sad for what occurred so I'm simply not buying it. Sorry! But as I've already stated when it's you then it will be to late to change your minds....

I did say by the way "it's up to the perosn OR family.... So WTF to your silly "where is the family" point. No offense

under Obama care the government will decide who will live, and who will

die, and they decide when, not you or family......imo......im a nurse.

I do homecare for elderly, some are dying, but that does'nt mean I

speed up the process, they are treated with dignity and respect, till

they pass on.

The thought of a slow painful death is scary.

If it was me in that situation I would like to be put out instead of a painful for sure death because of the situation.

I guess that's what you would rather have. A slow painful death. wtf

Then tell me what you would honestly do if they were laying there gurgling for 2 hours trying to breath but cant because the power is off?
Just stand there and watch them suffer?

That, imo, is torture.

Thank you "TruthSeeker" for being honest about our elderly and how they are doing needlessly sometimes. That is the brunt of my point.

It's Doctors like this in the OP that didn't do it for honorable reasons and their are more doctors like this today because of our PAST and present adminitrations promoting euthanasia and eugenics. I am very angry about this article but not that it has been reported as my only goal in posting this thread is to wake as many people up to the fact that we are going to be denied the option to live but how would you handle it personally.

I'm prepared, it isn't right but I am a realist and want to face it head on instad of playing the political denial game lol...

I'm sure that everybody under your care is treated completely honorable and I can only hope that I have that kind of person looking over me. But honestly it's hot totally up to you if the plug gets pulled when you leave your shift and return the next day and the patient is in the morgue.

This is a difficult question to answer, I guess I would have to be there

an experience that kind of "desperation" to be able to answer your

question.
