    From the information in the article it seems that the nurse was compelled to do the right thing. It is a sorry state of affairs that to do the right thing one must consider the possibility of going to jail and ending a career. Hmm maybe there is a bigger problem here and this is a symptom?

    This is why people are afraid to be "whistle blowers"-because they could lose their jobs or more.

    Corrupt people have many connections for some odd reason............

    I hope the truth comes out in all of this!

    Gives credence to that old cliche'

    1. It's who you know, not what you know"
    2. It's not what you know, it's what you can prove"
    The variations are many, but everyone gets the idea.

    In summation: "Money Talks & Bullshit Walks"

    You keep saying that like it means something, the last thread you made that claim in you never came back with one Iota of proof it was systemic to the State.

    Small town politics happen EVERY WHERE.

    When I lived in Augusta Georgia the city and County politicians were upset that a democrat that wanted to run for sheriff stopped calling himself a Democrat when the party would not let him run, he won. The local officials then merged the County and city and claimed that the Sheriff had no authority to run patrols and was soley in charge of the jail because the city had a police force. This got challenged in court and the Sheriff won. Then they accused him of embezzling funds because he spent 11k On a Patrol car for the Sheriffs deputies. That too failed.

    Here in Jacksonville NC the local sheriff, also a democrat had a run in with the local prosecutor also a democrat. The prosecutor charged him with tampering with a crime scene for the horrible act of actually doing his job and investigating a murder. They appointed an out of County DA to do the investigation and possible trial. The appointed DA was a close personal friend of the local DA. He had every intention of filing charges until the State stepped in and ordered the bullshit stopped. The State Police did their own independent investigation and ruled all the Sheriff did was investigate a crime scene.

    Neither of these places are Texas.

    Ohh look a RETARD. But then who would expect another Doctor with out any facts to do anything but support a doctor. That is why in some cases bad doctors stay doctors till they kill enough people to get noticed.

    I think that Sheriff is more likely to see jail time than the nurse. That is way out of line
