We’ve seen our fair share of evil. From dictatorial pantsuits to public masturbation (see Louis C.K. Breaks Silence on Accusations. Admits to Exposing Himself…). But the video below pushes everyone else aside and swan dives into a vat of Satan’s finest phlegm. It shows an elderly veteran struggling to breathe and calling for help in a nursing home. Because, you know, that’s what you do when you can’t breathe and you’re surrounded by medical professionals. Who are paid to help you.
A World War II veteran confined to a nursing home died while his calls for help went unanswered – and the whole thing was caught on hidden camera.
The incident took place at Northeast Atlanta Health and Rehabilitation in 2014, but the footage has only recently been made public by the family as part of a lawsuit.
89-year-old James Dempsey – who served his country during World War II – called for help six times, saying he couldn’t breathe.
When he finally became unresponsive, former nursing supervisor Wanda Nuckles approached the scene after being notified by another nurse. Nuckles claimed she was doing CPR and continued to do so until paramedics arrived … Not only did she lie about the chest compressions, the staff did not call 911 until an hour later.
When nurses had difficulty getting Dempsey’s oxygen machine operational … you can hear Nuckles and others laughing.
This is straight up evil, folks. Worse even than Jill Stein’s attempt at the presidency. Amy Schumer’s attempt at sexy. Lena Dunham at morality. You get the picture.
Unfortunately it isn’t the first time veterans have undergone severe mistreatment (see IRS Seizes Veteran’s Money, Forces him into Bankruptcy. But, it Gets WORSE… and Veteran Attacked By ‘Black Lives Matter.’). It’d be foolish to assume this will be the last time either. At least there does seem to be an uptick in exposure and attempts to hold caretakers accountable for neglect or abuse. Justice can’t be served fast enough.
