SOTG 211 – Doctor Shortage, the Future of America

This topic affects every listener in the United States. Your gun cannot heal your wound or cure what ails you. Sometime you need medical help. If you are wondering what the future of medical treatment in America will look like we offer you a glimpse.

Our friend, Dr. Dan Olesnicky, founder of SWAT Fuel and a practicing physician joins us to discuss this extremely critical issue. We also have a disturbing story from Ohio regarding a situation that is all too prevalent in the USA, people standing around watching people in trauma instead of helping them.

From fox59.com:

A man who recorded the aftermath of a crash that took the life of a
17-year-old boy is now facing charges.

Shortly before 1 a.m. Monday, a car crashed into a house on Kansas Avenue in Lorain, Ohio.

Police said the 17-year-old driver was incapacitated and the passenger, Cameron Friend, was left unconscious. He was taken to an area hospital, where he died from his injuries.

Neighbors rushed to help the teens while they waited for paramedics. However, police said Paul Pelton, of Lorain, didn’t attempt to aid the boys. Instead, he recorded video on his cell phone.

“While others were rendering aid to these boys, a male took the opportunity to video this horrible scene with his cell phone. In the video, the male makes comments that the boys were ‘Idiots,’ and holds his cell phone so that he can film these two boys who were in medical crisis,” Lorain police told WJW. He’s accused of opening the car door as he continued to record video.

Pelton did not turn the recording over to authorities. Police said he posted the video on Facebook and attempted to sell it to at least two news stations. The Lorain Police Department called it an attempt to make a profit from “a young man’s dying moments.”

The 41-year-old was arrested on a vehicle trespass charge.
