Deborah Washington of Fayetteville, North Carolina is suing AlliedBarton Security Services, a company which provides security guards for Cumberland County Hospital, for placing her son A Darrin Washington, 30, into a taxi cab where he was found dead when he arrived home, reports Courthouse News.1
A Darrin, who died on Nov.
22, 2011, suffered with Hodgkin s lymphoma and had reportedly been a patient at Cumberland County Hospital for 10 years.
14, 2011, one week before his death, A Darrin was admitted to the hospital and misdiagnosed as suffering from bacterial pneumonia. Subsequent tests revealed that he had fungal pneumonia and had been receiving the wrong medication.
Hospital staff noted that he was uncooperative, and refused to talk or move, and instead of determining why A Darrin was unresponsive, a nurse called a security guard to remove him from his hospital bed to the lobby, and from there he was removed from his wheelchair and placed in the taxi cab.

(A) nurse called for security to escort Mr. Washington from his hospital bed to the lobby for discharge because Mr.
Washington was allegedly uncooperative and refusing to talk or move, the complaint states.
Upon information and belief, prior to his discharge, Mr. Washington was extremely weak and ill and in pain and had sought not to be discharged before he became unresponsive.
When Mr. Washington became unresponsive he was unable to talk or move.
Washington was unresponsive due to the fact that he was dying.
Two security officers took him to the lobby, lifted him from his wheelchair into the taxi and secured him with a seat-belt while he was unresponsive, according to the complaint.
At least two members of the hospital staff expressed concerns about Washington, and the taxi driver was concerned that he was already dead, the mom claims.
Nonetheless, the security workers loaded him into the taxi, and even crossed his legs for him, the mother says.
Her son was unconscious during the 45-minute trip home, where his mom and family received him unresponsive and cold to the touch, according to the lawsuit.
His mom claims she suffered severe distress when her son s body was left in the taxi in the front yard for four hours, while police investigated.
She seeks compensatory and punitive damages for negligence, wrongful death and negligent infliction of emotional distress.
Washington claims that A Darrin was then left in the taxi cab for an additional 4 hours in front of her home while the police investigated.
Neither Cumberland County Hospital nor AlliedBarton Security Services have released a statement.
Did you know that the latest left-winger who decided to shoot up a local school was stopped in 80 seconds by an armed security guard? Few do because the media refuses to focus on this fact.
Arapaho High School shooter Karl Pierson was loaded up for a long shooting spree when he entered his high school at about 12:30 on December 13. But it was all over in seconds resulting in this admitted communist shooting himself when he was confronted by an armed Arapahoe County Sheriff s officer.
The sheriff was employed by the school as its Student Resource Officer.
The media isn t focusing much on the true facts in this story because it doesn t fit its narrative.
But the fact is the shooter was a left-wing criminal and was stopped by a man with a gun! These are facts that the left-wing, anti-Constitution media establishment are loath to report.
In fact, when it first published a story about the shooting, The Denver Post buried the fact1 that the boy was a self-identified socialist in the 13th paragraph of its story. But then, early the next morning, the paper erased the word socialist altogether and never told readers it had done so.
Why was the Post trying to shield this would be mass murderer from his own acclaimed, left-wing views?
Your guess is as good as mine.
OK, who am I kidding, the left-wing paper didn t want to identify a killer as a socialist for fear that it would make socialists look bad. But think of this: would the paper have been as reluctant to identify this creep s political ideas if he called himself a tea partier?
Nope. They d have been all over it.
The other key aspect of this story that most news outlets are trying to downplay is the fact that this kid was stopped in seconds by an armed security guard.
The deputy was yelling for people to get down and identified himself as a county deputy sheriff, Robinson said.
We know for a fact that the shooter knew that the deputy was in the immediate area and, while the deputy was containing the shooter, the shooter took his own life.
But even at that, these facts were buried deep down in the story instead of serving as a central point of the news as it should.
Left-wingers don t want America to know that this kid is a socialist nor do they want us all to know that an armed man in a school stopped a mass murder.
This does not fit the story they want to tell the country.
Kevin Gates Found Guilty of Battery After Kicking Woman at Florida Concert ATL Hotspots From Donald Glover’s …
The judge sentenced Gates to 180 days in Polk County jail, with credit for any time served, and fines and court costs, WFLA reports. He was convicted by a jury of six women after one day of testimony. Miranda Dixon, 18, admitted to having tugged on Gates’ pants during the concert at Rumor’s Nite Club on Aug. 28, 2015. She said during the trail, “I was trying to get his attention for my friend.”
Dixon’s friend Teremal Redding testified as well, saying she had asked Dixon to grab Gates to get his attention “because he is a famous rapper.” She said that the entire front row had been grabbing at Gates and that the first time Dixon grabbed him, he kept performing, but the second time he got violent, kicking her with force. Gates’ defense attorney Jose Baez cross-examined Redding about Dixon’s injuries, pointing out that Redding had stayed for the rest of the show after her friend left following the incident.
In a previous hearing, Gates admitted to kicking a fan during the show and used the Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law in attempt to have the charges dropped.
“I kicked them, I wanted them off me,” he said during the previous hearing.
Rumor’s Nightclub head of security Joe Hailey testified during the trial that Gates’ security team had not made any special requests for additional security or any barricade between the stage and the crowd for the concert. He said there were about 20 security guards working that night and that there was room for Gates to back up on stage if he did not want to be touched.
