Patient dumping is disgusting.

Patient dumping is disgusting. We believe few actions are more despicable than a hospital discharging indigent and/or mentally ill patients by dumping them on city streets; usually skid row. If this is how hospitals treat the helpless what can we expect from Wall Street, banks and other institutions? History shows that corporate corruption goes on for years before the justice system takes action. And what are the penalties? A financial fine, i.e. a slap on the wrist. We want these criminals brought to trial, the way the rest of us are. And the guilty should be imprisoned, the way the rest of us are. Financial fines are no deterrent for the wealthy, perhaps the prospect of ten years hard-time would nudge them towards decency.

Discussion among the americans.
  1. mikeIncredible that this is still going on, further proof that the punishment has not fit the crime. I wouldn't be surprised if they expected and planned for this--just another line item in the annual budget. "Civil penalties for illegal/inhumane behavior: ($300,000.00) Cost savings from illegal/inhumane behavior: $5,000,000.00"   10 years ago
