Patient in wheelchair shoots doctor in Florida hospital

A doctor with the Department of Veterans Affairs was shot in the neck when a patient in a wheelchair opened fire Wednesday evening in V.A. hospital in West Palm Beach, Florida. The suspect, Lawrence Bon, 59, had been at the center since early in the morning and had been ’combative’ with employees all day. Bon began shooting while he was undergoing a psychological evaluation.

Anyone that's ever dealt with the horrific service the VA provides has felt the urge to do this, but most of us refrain. How smart Is it to treat trained killers badly and not expect this result eventually?

"Hurry up and wait" when dealing with any government entity will drive you nuts. Ask anyone that has had to get a new license lately. Not a good plan for someone with emotional/mental health issues.

I’m sorry to say this but the VA health system is basically what we would end up with if we go to a one-system care. A lot of vets think the care will be the same as when they were active duty but it isn’t because there are a lot more vets than active duty people, and not enough doctors to go around. It can take 18 months to even file a claim and that is making the assumption you filed the claim correctly. There is a lot broken with the system but sadly va is really for those who have no other options.

I used to watch Dexter and now I understand, the show makes a lot more sense when you pay attention to the Florida headlines.
