“He’s homeless, he’s aggressive, he’s suicidal, so he ain’t gonna be the best, is he?” the driver can be heard to say. “You don’t need to take him if you don’t feel safe with him. That’s why we’ve got the fire extinguisher. Take it off the hook now and you’ve got something to hit him with. You’d rather be prosecuted, wouldn’t you, for beating a patient to a pulp than that patient beating you to a pulp, wouldn’t you, as a choice of the two?”
After his colleague agrees, the driver continues: “D’you want a broken arm, a broken jaw, black eyes, or do you want to beat the fuck out of someone and then get prosecuted? You could still say it was self-defence.” His colleague then adds: “And get suspended for six months while they check up on it.”
The driver concludes: “[At] least you’re able to sit in your garden. You wouldn’t be able to get into your garden with a broken leg, would you?”
At the end of the four-minute message, the driver realises they are still being recorded. “That was a long message on his phone,” he says, without appearing to register the significance of what the two have said.
The patient, aged 43, had not been picked up by the two crew members before and has no history of being aggressive towards G4S staff. He said the message left him distraught.
“When I got in the ambulance they were all nicey-nice and said ‘how are you mate?’ and I said ‘I was good till I heard your voice message’,” he said. “Then I played them the voicemail. They tried to apologise and I said it’s a bit late for that.” He said he self-harmed as a result of the incident.
On 10 May, G4S wrote to the patient saying: “I am sorry to learn that you had a poor experience with our service.” He was subsequently visited by G4S management, which apologised to him.
He added: “What made it worse is that I was told the two men were suspended on full pay.”
This person was picked up with the ambulance drivers and EMTS knowing he had been labeled with so-called “mental health” issues. As a result, they were going to use brute force, violence, and discrimination on him.
Psych Victims are at higher risk of being abused after being labeled, which will only make them worse off.
There was no proof of the man being previously aggressive with G4S ambulance staff. Only the label gave “guilty before being innocent.”
“The patient, who does not want to be named, told the Guardian he was sent the ambulance on 8 May to take him for an MRI scan on his lower abdomen after a stomach rupture. He has mental health problems and had been rehoused in temporary emergency council accommodation in Kent the previous week.”
The driver of the G4S vehicle left a message saying the crew would be a few minutes late to take him to William Harvey hospital in Ashford, Kent.
Wow! She certainly knows how to get her message through. Refreshing to hear another point of view. Does it hurt to be exposed to these views? Should an Australian audience be allowed to hear this- are they ready? https://t.co/AZZBjBwKmI

Planned Parenthood enjoys a good reputation. Many Americans think it performs necessary services — screening for sexually transmitted diseases, forestalling teen pregnancy and controlling family size.
But there are some disturbing realities behind the scene. For example, Planned Parenthood’s confidentiality principles (it promises not to tell anyone of a teenager’s problems) conflict with laws in every state that require health care workers to report suspected sexual abuse or statutory rape to law enforcers. Not surprisingly, investigators are finding a national pattern of failure to report sex crimes against underage teens.
In 2002 Life Dynamics, a pro-life group based in Texas, called 800 abortion clinics around the country, many of them run by Planned Parenthood. The caller would say she was a 13-year-old girl whose boyfriend was 22, and she needed an abortion. Ninety-one percent of the clinics told the caller they would give her an abortion, but warned her not to reveal her boyfriend’s age.
Americans may be surprised to learn that Planned Parenthood has plenty of money, and taxpayers are contributing a large part of it. In 2005-06 it took in nearly $1 billion and boasted a surplus of $55 million. More than one-third of its income — $305 million — came from government subsidies. Its president receives an annual compensation of almost $1 million.
In a time when abortions nationwide are declining, Planned Parenthood is performing more abortions than ever — 264,943 in 2005-06. These abortions bring in at least a third of its $345 million in clinic income.
Because Planned Parenthood is America’s biggest chain of abortion clinics, it is unsettling to learn that of the six American women who have died after taking the abortion pill RU-486, four got the pill from a Planned Parenthood clinic. Yet Planned Parenthood refuses to comply with FDA guidelines, permitting women to take the drug at home rather than at a clinic as the FDA advises.
There are also disturbing racial disparities. National numbers from the Alan Guttmacher Institute and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reveal that the overwhelming majority of abortion clinics are located in metropolitan areas, and some analysts have placed the percentage in minority neighborhoods at greater than 75 percent. Data from the CDC show that while white women get the majority of abortions (56 percent), black women, at only 13 percent of the population, are getting roughly 36 percent of the abortions. On average, 432,000 black babies are aborted annually.
According to sociologist Anne Hendershott, black women are more likely than whites to get late-term abortions, which are riskier. Perhaps abortion is more common in minority communities because, similar to alcohol and tobacco, it is more aggressively marketed there.
It is well known that Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, aligned herself with the eugenicists concerned with eliminating undesirables from the population. Moreover, Sanger received and accepted an invitation to address a Ku Klux Klan chapter and gave a speech that led to additional Klan invitations. Although we do not know what she said, we do know that recently questions have been raised about racism at Planned Parenthood clinics.
Documented in a widely-circulated recording and transcript, a UCLA student researcher for a pro-life magazine hired a professional actor in February 2008 to call Planned Parenthood clinics around the country, offering donations to “lower the number of black people” by targeting black babies for abortion. She found Planned Parenthood clinics in seven states that agreed to take the monies. Not one Planned Parenthood employee objected to the caller’s racist remarks or purposes.
Many taxpayers may not be comfortable with the ways that Planned Parenthood has been active in the political arena. Partial-birth abortion strikes many as a particularly hideous way to kill a baby, yet Planned Parenthood lobbied againsta ban on that practice. The Born Alive Infants Protection Act would have defined a viable fetus surviving the abortion process as a person entitled to medical assistance. Nurses have testified that babies who survive a botched abortion are sometimes of the same size and condition of those successfully treated in neonatal units across the country. Typically, they are left to die. Nurses have reported that some manage to survive for hours. Planned Parenthood lobbied against this bill as well.
One must wonder, then, whether taxpayers should continue to support an organization that is flush with money, has beenwilling to skirt or ignore laws intended to protect the people it claims to serve and may be targeting minorities with a practice many Americans believe immoral.

Where to begin? Oh, how bout here.. This school is a fake black ops CIA facility, where they hire delinquents who get off to beating up children. This is not a joke. It’s a real torture program, hidden right in plain sight of a suburb in Ferndale Michigan. If you get close enough; you can hear kids scream, and if u go inside, you might have a few chairs thrown at you… Not bc they’re bad kids, but bc they are being ABUSED!!! Sometimes sexually too! Does anyone care? No! You libtards are too busy worried about protecting illegals, than to pay attention to your own kids, who are being drugged and kidnapped on a daily bases.
