Black Woman Discharged From ER in Gown and Socks at a Bus Stop

http://www.baltimoresun.com/health/bs-hs-patient-video-20180110-story.html

The video shows what looks like four security guards, one with a wheelchair, walking away from a bus stop outside the hospital on the outskirts of Mount Vernon. A woman is seen near the bus stop dressed in a gown and socks. Her belongings are packed in plastic bags that have also been placed at the bus stop.

The video, which went viral, was posted to Facebook by Imamu Baraka, who is described in an online professional profile as a mental health counselor

“I just witnessed this with my own eyes,” Baraka wrote in his post. “I had no choice but to give this young lady a voice in this moment.”
