Medical Report: 17-Year-Old Died After Attending Florida Church’s “COVID Party”

The mother should be charge and face legal penalties for this.   Her daughter died due to her actions and neglect.   There are requirements for being able to have and operate certain objects in Society but there is no requirements it seems for having children for religious groups.  This is what you get when you teach people their god requires them to ignore science and reality and focus on unproven myth.   This is what you get when you forement a conspiracy class that thinks the country they live in with extra privilege is out to persecute them.   You get QAnon conspiracy believers willing to let their children die because they mistrust the very people that could help them.   Hugs

Medical Report: 17-Year-Old Died After Attending Florida Church’s “COVID Party”

Data scientist Dr. Rebekah Jones, who has been in the news lately because she was fired by the Florida Department of Health for pointing out how serious the virus was even though Republican officials were trying to downplay it, recently launched a website as a tribute to Florida victims of the virus. Yesterday, she posted some surprising and disturbing details about Carsyn’s death.

According to a public Medical Examiner’s report obtained by the website (but not posted online), Carsyn’s mother Carole Brunton Davis took her to a “COVID Party” hosted by their church on June 10.

I repeat, the mother took her immunocompromised daughter to a virus party with about 100 mask-less kids.

Her mom, who is not a doctor, then prescribed her daughter azithromycin, an anti-bacterial drug with no known benefits for fighting COVID-19, for several days. During that “treatment period,” Carsyn developed headaches, sinus pressure and a cough.

A few days later, without taking her to a doctor, her mother would later report that her daughter “looked gray” on June 19, so she put Carsyn on her grandfather’s oxygen machine.

When that still did nothing to combat the cough, the headaches, the sinus infection, the fever, her mother started giving her hydroxychloroquine — a dangerous drug that clinical studies have shown makes a person MORE likely to die of COVID, but was recklessly touted by President Trump for months as a supposed “cure.”

Carsyn’s health declined so rapidly that she was admitted in a hospital’s intensive care unit. But even though she was having trouble breathing, her mother declined intubating her.

Carsyn died two days after her 17th birthday.

The victims website notes:

Carole keeps a public facebook profile that is filled with conspiracy theories about underground governmental networks and mind-control. She’s a devout follower of the alt-right terrorist and conspiracy group QAnon, and frequently reposts stories from other alt-right websites like The Federalist.

She’s an anti-vaxxer, too.

Carsyn officially died from the virus. But she may have survived it if not for her negligent, conspiracy-obsessed, Trump-loving mother.

Houston Moves COVID-19 Patients to Other Cities: ‘We Don’t Have Capacity’

https://www.newsweek.com/houston-moves-covid-19-patients-other-cities-we-dont-have-capacity-1514600

With novel coronavirus cases in Texas approaching nearly 161,900, hospitals in Houston, the county seat of Harris County, are moving patients to facilities outside the city in a bid to cope with the surge in COVID-19-related cases and lack of beds.

Harris Health System, which operates Houston’s Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital and Ben Taub Hospital, has transferred patients to the University of Texas Medical Branch in the cities of Galveston and Conroe as well as the Woodlands community in a scramble to find beds for patients, Houston’s ABC13 reported.

Charlie McMurray-Horton, the associate administrator for clinical integration and transformation at Harris Health System, told ABC13: “We are actively trying to transfer out ICU [intensive care unit] and surge patients that are COVID positive and under investigation, just because we don’t have the capacity to treat those patients.

“It really has intensified in the last month or so,” McMurray-Horton said.

Dr. Hashibul Hannan, who works at Houston’s SignatureCare Emergency Center, told ABC13 on Saturday, there’s been a massive spike in COVID-19 patients at nine stand-alone emergency rooms in the Houston area.

“We’re having to send patients far away. Like from Houston, we have to send people to Galveston, to Beaumont, to Huntsville,” Hannan told ABC13.

On Tuesday, Texas reported a record 6,975 new cases, the highest daily case count since the outbreak began, according to the latest report Tuesday from the Texas DSHS.

On Monday, doctors in San Antonio reported hospital beds were running out, with nearly two dozen COVID-19 patients reportedly waiting in emergency rooms for beds to be available.

“We’re in a crisis,” Dr. Jair Melo, the director of critical care at San Antonio’s Methodist Healthcare System, said at a press conference held by doctors from the health system, News Channel 4 San Antonio reported.

San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg confirmed a facility has been set up at the Freeman Coliseum sports venue with 250 beds on the floor ready to admit non-COVID-19 patients, including those recovering from surgeries, should hospitals reach full capacity.

Dallas is also looking to open a temporary hospital at Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in a bid to cope with the surge in COVID-19 patients.

The Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston last week announced it is admitting adult patients to help create additional bed space for COVID-19 patients.

On Sunday, the Texas Medical Center, Houston’s leading source of intensive care unit (ICU) data, was reported to have deleted all previously published reports of ICU data from its website, amid a statewide spike in hospitalizations related to the novel coronavirus.

More at the link above.   I notice that the Texas governor that refused to let cities mandate masks has now required masks state wide.   The LT gov was on Fox news saying Anthony Fauci has not been right yet and their doctors telling them to go full speed into reopening were.   Well here we are, they are needless repeating what happened in New York so they could please the Dear Leader and pretend wearing masks was against their freedoms, yet now that reality wouldn’t give in to them, they are admitting that yes it is with in the states authority to demand you wear something for health and safety reasons, or just because they are terrified of seeing  boobies out side of their paid for porn.  Hugs

‘Beat it, little f***er.’ Officers laugh after shooting rubber bullets at protesters.

https://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/investigations/article243932047.html

Fort Lauderdale police officers laughed and celebrated after shooting protesters with rubber bullets at a May 31 George Floyd rally in Fort Lauderdale, newly released body camera footage shows.

“Beat it, little f***er,” Detective Zachary Baro, leader of a Fort Lauderdale SWAT team unit,can be heard saying after officers shot “less lethal” projectiles at a protester. The protester was walking away after tossing a tear gas canister back at the line of police.

A few minutes later, another officer, Jamie Chatman,came up to Baro behind the police line and asked if his body camera was off. Baro replied — incorrectly — that his camera was in “stand-by” mode and not recording. The two officers then began laughing and joking about the people they had shot with rubber bullets.

“Did you see me f**k up those motherf****rs?” one of the officers said.

“I got the one f***er,” the other replied amid laughter.

George Kirkham, a former police officer and professor emeritus at Florida State University, condemned the behavior captured on the footage.

“This is serious misconduct. This is people with badges acting like thugs,” Kirkham said. “It’s like a cancer. If you let it go, it will spread.”

Maglione did not respond to questions about whether Baro and Chatman had been placed under internal investigation or removed from duty.

The officers’ conduct was revealed in hours of footage provided by the Fort Lauderdale Police Department in response to a Miami Herald public records request. The footage bolsters protesters’ accounts that police aggression sparked the first documented confrontation between police and protesters.

Marchers hurled plastic water bottles after Officer Steven Pohorence rushed into a crowd of protesters and pushed a kneeling woman in the head. Police responded with a round of tear gas. Still, body camera footage shows that even after that, protesters quickly moved to reestablish peace.

“Please I am begging you, we’re peaceful,” one man can be heard yelling.

“Do you see this?” another man asked to the line of riot police pointing to the protesters taking a knee in the street. “We are going to stop this. We are going to be the generation that brings peace.”

After a few tense minutes, video shows police started to throw tear gas at the group again. Within 15 minutes of Pohorence shoving the woman, Baro had emptied his six-chamber rubber bullet launcher and had to reload, he can be heard saying in his body camera video. (Pohorence was charged with misdemeanor battery on Tuesday.)

“If you need it, give me a target,” Baro yelled to other officers from behind the line of police.

The comment stuck out to Robert Drago, a retired lieutenant colonel at the Broward Sheriff’s Office, who reviewed the footage.

“If you’re not seeing a threat, why are you asking for a threat?” Drago said. “That would almost lead you to believe that they were indiscriminately firing.”

Baro said in his incident report that he was firing rubber bullets at protesters throwing tear gas canisters and other objects.

“I understand what it’s like to have that adrenaline. I’ve been in a riot situation,” Kirkham said. “But that does not excuse that kind of verbiage and behavior. It suggests that the police think they can do whatever they want and get away with it.”

Other policing experts agreed.

“It’s unprofessional. They shouldn’t be laughing and joking about shooting and potentially hurting people,” said Philip Sweeting, former deputy chief of police in Boca Raton. “It reinforces the public’s distrust of the police. It shouldn’t be tolerated.”

Drago also criticized the behavior of Chatman, the officer who asked Baro if his body camera was off.

“It shows intent and then he makes inappropriate, unprofessional statements,” said Drago. “It’s not a carnival. This isn’t hit-three-times-and-get-a-stuffed-animal. It doesn’t seem like these officers had public safety in mind at all.”

Christina Currie, an attorney and chair of the Fort Lauderdale Citizens’ Police Review Board, said Chatman asking if the body camera was off posed a “grave concern.”

“It was pretty obvious the officers were comfortable about talking about turning the camera off,” Currie said. “It didn’t feel like the officer wearing the camera felt shocked about hearing that question. There need to be clearly articulated consequences for violations.”

Fort Lauderdale police policy on body cameras states that: “Once the [camera] is activated to record an interaction, it shall remain on until the event has ended.”

There is more at the link above.   The article clearly shows the police enjoying hurting the people, the police clearly are acting aggressively to establish their power and authority in a bullying thuggish manner.  These are not law officers anymore, they are a gang enforcing their desires through violence and paid for with tax payer money.  I hope people will read the article and understand this is a fight against the authoritarian police gangs who demand more and more of governments budgets and a progressive future.    Hugs
