A viral video of a recently discharged patient left at a bus stop at night in Baltimore has inspired widespread outrage and prompted an investigation at the hospital where she was treated.


The video is distressing to watch -- both for its content and for the questions it raises about the events leading up to it.

A young woman, wearing only a hospital gown and socks, is left standing by a bus stop Tuesday night or early Wednesday as four men in uniforms, possibly security guards, walk away. The man who filmed it, Imamu Baraka, follows them as they leave the stop with an empty wheelchair.

"Wait, so you all are just going to leave this lady out here with no clothes on?" he says. "That is not okay."

The young woman barely speaks and seems dazed, occasionally crying out. Baraka urges her to sit at the bus stop, where two plastic bags full of the woman's belongings lie on the ground next to a pair of shoes. As she approaches the cold bench, the thin gown exposes her bare skin.

5. Wtf is wrong w/people? Back in 08 a NH hospital discharged a mentally ill woman

into a city street in late fall without contacting any family or ensuring she had a place to go.

She wandered out of town into th countryside and found an empty farmhouse, picked apples and lived on apples and the last bit of oil, keeping a journal and waiting for an old acquaintance that god told her was going to come for her on a specific day.

A realtor found her starved remains in the spring.

This happens more than people think. Once is one time too many.

16. that hospital is a business, owned by "job creators"

giving her a ride home adds nothing to their bottom line. to expect them to do more is slavery.

9. That woman is obviously not in her right mind

I have to believe there is much more to this story.

Doctor Mohan Suntha does not seem to know it.

13. People are dicks...

Two recent incidents in my area show just how dickish they can be.

One, a little girl about two years old was found wandering the streets of a medium sized town on a very cold day wearing only a diaper. People passed her by until two young men took her to the police station.

Two, not very far from where I live, in a rural setting, a lady lost control of her car and plowed into a snowbank on the side of the road. No cell service where she was at (it's spotty out here). She kept waving at people driving by but nobody stopped. Nobody even bothered driving to the fire station five minutes away to report the accident. The lady was wearing fingerless gloves but pulled her fingers in toward the palms to keep them warm. She walked to a spot where she was able to get cell service and called a friend who came to pick her up. She now has frostbite on all of her fingers.

How can people be such assholes?

Oh, and PS...I saw this on Facebook the other day...a social experiment...a young boy was dressed in dirty clothing and secretly filmed while pretending to eat food scavenged from sidewalk trash cans. People passed right by him, generally. Some stopped and asked if he was OK, but the majority didn't give a rat's ass.

Sometimes I absolutely hate human beings.

17. People always stop here when someone is pulled over on the side of the road. You could be making

phone call and people stop. We were removing ice recently off the windshield (huge ice storm and the rain was freezing thick on everything) and a dude stopped and asked us if we needed help. We always stop and see if the people in ta parked car are okay.

My husband forget his cell phone had a breakdown so was walking by the road through our place and the local doctor stop and handed him hers. You can’t even take a walk by the road without people asking you if you need a lift. I could go on and on the kindness of the people here.

In a nearby town a 4 yr old girl wondered out of her house and down a busy road - everyone stopped to help her.

I saw a headlights stopped for ages on the country road about 1/4 mile away. I drove over there and asked the woman if she was okay. She was just taking photos of the full moon rising above our hill.

Every driver you pass on the road waves cheerfully.

We are very rural and conservative here. Republican candidates get 70% - 80% of the vote.
