“the Justice Department could launch a full-blown criminal probe if any of the information meets the standard for doing so.”
Remember back when it was a given that murdering the disabled to steal from the government, then strong-arming employees to cover it was criminal?
If guards let the Aurora Killer, Gacy, or Hassan die by denying him medical care, THEY would be charged with murder.
This government is LITERALLY expecting disabled veterans to tolerate treatment that is criminal to carry out on cop-killers, terrorists who gun down pregnant soldiers on our own Army bases, cannibals who eat their neighbors kids, and rabid mass-murderers who empty shotguns into children at a movie theater.
What kind of response do you think this disrespect will bring from the 20,000,000 veterans in this country, who are already dealing with betrayal and rage issues? What kind of behavior is this going to bring out in the families who get to spend the rest of their lives reflecting on Memorial Day and Veterans’ Day, that their loved ones who voluntarily risked their life for this country, were able to survive a decade of war, only to be murdered by the very hospitals assigned to protect them, then to have their murders trivialized in a way our society would NEVER risk doing to the most horrific monsters we can imagine?
Seriously consider the conversations that are going to be going on with the children survived by their dead parents all across the country:
“Son, today’s Memorial Day (or Veterans’ Day). Today is the day we take time to remember Daddy dying for his country.”
“Mommy, why did Daddy die?”
“Son, he was murdered by the hospital our government assigned to protect him.”
“Mommy, why didn’t they send them to jail?”
“Son, they should have, but in our country, rich people don’t have to obey the law, and they have their own police to protect them.”
“Mommy, why do they protect traitors, terrorists, and cannibals more than Daddy?”
Do you have an answer for this question? I don’t.
