Woman dies in ER waiting room for lack of care  
This is just inexcusable. This is the kind of medical care that is available to those who are poor and especially those who aren't white. Or I should say, the kind of medical care that is not available--just an illusion, really.

Worse than inexcusable. Criminal. If they don't fire some people (like idiot cops who ARREST a dying woman!) and 911 operators who don't consider dying (regardless of where) an emergency...who mouth off to a SECOND caller about being "negative". Yeah, I hope whatever gods those folks worship bitchslap the hell out of them for wrapping themselves in bureaucratic righteousness while this woman died.

See, I worry about that kind of thing happening to *me*. And it IS totally inexcusable!

That's so horrifying. It's hard to believe they treated her that way. That particular hospital is notorious.
