It's 4:15 am. One of the county ambulances just pulled up and brought in a 25 year old black male who had called EMS from a motel he was staying at. His complaint was that he was having an asthma attack. When he sat in the triage chair, I asked him what we could do for him and he stated, "Nothing!!! I just needed a ride to this area". He then just got up and walked out of the hospital and down the street. This missed abortion of a human not only wasted taxpayer money on a needless ambulance ride but also put the EMTs at risk. Suppose they had had an accident on the way to the call with lights and sirens going or suppose someone else, having a heart attack, actually needed that ambulance while it was transporting his worthless ass? That's part of the reason America is going to go down the tubes. There are far too many people who do not think of the other person anymore, too many people who do not realize the possible consequences of their actions because they are only thinking of themselves. For every honest, sincere citizen, there must be at least 20 assholes like this guy who contribute nothing to society and therefore should not be allowed to participate in it. If I had my way, I'd hamstring that guy and have a Coast Guard chopper take him about 100 miles out into the Atlantic and drop his butt into the deep blue sea!!!!
