  •  Let's just calm down....and look at this (5+ / 0-)

    We know that transgenders are discriminated against.. All the time... A court of law will determine if this was the case.  
    If this is the case, then don't expect much better if any better treatment for John Doe who happens to be gay, black, hispanic or just homeless and poor.

    We are in a time as I have never seen with no pride in  jobs  for a various amount of reasons and lack of empathy.
    I am very familiar with diabetic shock as our 23 year old is a juvenile diabetic.  Once the insulin shock rocks the body, there is little time to revive.   There is a red needle of glucose that is to be administered  upon calling 911 but to tell the truth I have always been so busy, me or my husband trying to get the sugar up before she loses consciousness.   The body ( her  body ) was almost convulsive and she was screaming that it is a hard thing to deal with and scary as Hell.  I don't doubt the Mother knew little of what to do.  We were schooled for a week at a diabetic class at Emory on how to handle Juvenile Diabets and insulin shock.. I lost all sense when it happened and my husband became the calm doc.  He always grabbed that shot just in case we couldnt get her sugar up because once they lose consciousness.....it pretty much is a 50/50 thing.  
    Maybe she had passed.  Maybe a lot went wrong... Maybe there was much confusion...Maybe it was let her die....or maybe they got there too late.   There are times and 911 has recordings.
