Posted on 05/28/2014 6:23:39 AM PDT by ZULU
The family of a 65 year-old veteran claims that VA police stomped on the veterans head and neck, causing him to suffer a stroke and die several weeks later, a new lawsuit alleges.

We cannot go a day without one of these stories.
At the risk of being off topic (but it does relate to government arrogance and abuse) have you ever had the misfortune of visiting a Social Security office? They will give you the verbal equivalent of a stomp on the head.
If not for one nurse who knew the truth, the VA would have just lied and gotten away with it.
VA, SS, Homeland Security, TSA, IRS, ATF, NSA.
Different intials - same band of NAZIs - American Style.
The “bumps in the road” are the bodies of our veterans.
YES, IT MOST CERTAINLY IS RELATED!!!
He had waited several HOURS for his dialysis. What does that say about scheduling and service?
And then he can't even leave of his own free will -- with his wife's knowledge and agreement -- AMA (against medical advice)?? Are you @#%$^^@%$# kidding me, he gets ATTACKED for this, for demanding to be treated well??
I'm hoping there's video surveillance evidence, but I didn't see it from article -- ?
As a genuine American Hero, you deserve better.
This incompetence by the VA existed in the past, and under the human blasphemy in the White House currently, it had become, like many governmental problems, a PLAGUE.
I have not. I do believe you.
Courthouse news service (source; looking for more info):
Short summary of these events:
65 year old vet goes to the VA for dialysis treatment.
Gets prepped for treatment by have a medical device inserted in his arm.
*** Waits 4 hrs without treatment ***
Decides that is long enough and attempts to leave for another hospital to receive treatment.
On his way out, the staff tells him he cant leave and calls the VA cops.
VA cops tackle him and apply pressure to the carotid artery which results in a stroke.
Stroke eventually kills the Vet.
According to other accounts, the vet did not fight or struggle with the VA cops. He was attacked, assaulted and killed without ANY probable cause. Further, the cops did not even attempt to assess the situation by talking to the vet. In my opinion, the cops committed murder and should be held accountable for their illegal actions.
I hate to say it, but this veteran’s death would not have been covered by the media in 2011. Maybe it will now. I wish the deaths at the VA due to Legionnaire’s Disease were also looked into now.
Of course he didn't know about it until he heard it on the news.
In Obamaland, Death Cures Everything.

“I’m hoping there’s video surveillance evidence...”
There probably was. But you can bet it was destroyed, erased, deleted, whatever to cover their tracks.
In my opinion, the cops committed murder and should be held accountable for their illegal actions.
I totally agree, Cops in general are out of control in America. They are no longer peace officers. They now view themselves as Carbinieri or Gendarms or VOPOS of the most dangerous kind. Not only are they protected by the Government and courts, they are protected by unions.
This had its initiation under Bush II after 9-11 and has exploded under the current occupant in the White House.
If/when you do ever visit a SS office recommend you wear your old clothes and look as downtrodden/unkempt as possible. If you look like a responsible, hard working, law abiding, tax paying citizen they will treat you like dirt. That’s just a fact.
// Jonathan Montano died on June 11, 2011, after VA police brutalized him at the VA hospital in Loma Linda on May 25 that year, his widow claims in the lawsuit. //
I’d not heard of this before now. JUNE 11, 2011. 3 YRS AGO.
// “Later on, one of the nurses at the VA Hospital in Loma Linda took Norma Montano aside, and told her that her husband didn’t fall, but was slammed to the ground by the VA Police, that Norma Montano was being lied to, and that it wasn’t right what the VA Police did to Jonathan Montano...She is represented by Jerry L. Steering, of Newport Beach. //
I do hope the lawyer was able to find surveillance video or bystander accounts/photos; still not finding that info. It will be all the more damning if video went missing (thanks again, ZULU).
Ahh, but you see, those cops went home safely that night. Nothing else matters. Nothing whatsoever.
The VA’s primary purpose these days appears to be to reduce the cost of government by eliminating a lot of military pensions.
This way that frees up a lot of money to use for medical care and education of illegal aliens.
Veterans appear to be at the lowest rung on the priority list. Illegal aliens are America’s First Class Citizens. Working American Citizens are second class citizens and veterans are down the line as third or forth class citizens.
This is a national shame for a government that has no shame.
Considering the fact that Janet Napolitano - the first head of Homeland Security under Obama - listed Veterans - among many others - as potential terrorists - its not surprising the Feds might be targetting them for elimination.
That’s ‘single payer’ medicine for you.
Turns out VA security are actual LEOs not mere security guards.
At the VA, we'll treat you just like a King!
I, for one, would love to go a year without stories like this.

We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that weve set. Weve got to have a civilian national security force thats just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded. Barack Hussein Obama, 7/2/2008They dont call it a Civil Defense force, that would imply we need (or perhaps that we deserve) defense. The official name is National Civilian Community Corps.
I think of it as the NatCCC, or more simply, as the NatCs...
Cops are the dire enemy of America.
They are a plague.
Bet you a dollar that will start changing.
We did it to native americans as government policy using free healthcare clinics on reservations, what do we expect from the same on us?
We sure are a country full of dum sum bitches.
Story posted yesterday by Altariel: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/3160792/posts
But no prior mention on FR (or elsewhere, for that matter) before now, according to Google advanced src. The story percolated through the system and is only just now busting out.
Cutoffs, ragged t shirt and grimy shoes.
That is where the problem should be "taken care of" These cops need to lose the safe haven they call home.
Law enforcement and federal employees have open season on those who question or resist his ways.
Unless we’re talking about the late Bradley Manning, soon to be gelded, reshaped, and bred to California Chrome, all at government expense.
I will guarantee you that HIV/AIDS positive veterans will get their multi-million lifetime drugs that will extend their lives for maybe a dozen or two years.
Heck...cynic that I am...I think that’s why they wanted in the military in the first place. Med care for their horrific diseases, of which HIV/AIDS is only one.
The German word for that is 'Sturmabteilung'. They did the same thing, except they put a bunch of gay guys in charge.
The VA reminds me of the movie “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.”
Why does the VA have police at all?
Laz, as usual, raises an interesting point.
America survived quite a long time without much in the way of “police”. Armed citizens took care of themselves and their neighbors.
Were we to pay bounties on criminals, the population of violent criminals would be quickly culled. With no legal costs (courts, lawyers) and no prisons, crime would no linger be a huge cost to America.
Bounties have the following advantages over cops and courts:
1. A bounty is paid once, not annually.
2. Bounties do not get pensions.
3. Bounties do not have benefits packages.
4. Bounties do not have unions.
Fire the cops!
Bring back bounties!
Too bad they didn't have a snappy nickname like NatCs to go with that...
I must ask (perhaps out of ignorance) but why does the VA need a Police Department? It seems that every Federal department has it’s own Law Enforcement Agency... I would think any Law Enforcement matters could be handled just fine by local or County Agencies. Perhaps, just perhaps it all comes down to CONTROL.
Every hospital has a security team, but those are easily purchased from security businesses. I’m doubting that hospitals in general run an internal security department. I don’t really know, though. If someone wants to correct me on that, please sound off.
“In his study of 18th Century slave patrols the largely unacknowledged ancestors of todays professional police agencies — historian Philip L. Reichel points out that patrols had full power and authority to enter any plantation and break open Negro houses or other places where slaves were suspected of keeping arms; to punish runaways or slaves found outside of their masters plantations without a pass; [and] to whip any slave who should affront or abuse them in the execution of their duties .
No-knock midnight raids; gun confiscation; stop-and-frisk-style demands for identification that quickly escalate to violence and arrest; summary punishment for contempt of cop all of these practices would be immediately recognizable to 18th century slaves. They would probably find it incomprehensible that people who consider themselves to be free would allow such practices to continue.”
