Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, July 01, 2019

An African American man recovering from pneumonia says he was arrested after a white security guard and police officers racially profiled him when he went for a walk on his doctor's orders outside a northern Illinois hospital while attached to an IV machine and wearing a hospital gown. Shaquille Dukes, 24, said that what at first appeared to be a misunderstanding escalated into an unnecessary confrontation with police and prompted his arrest and the arrests of two men with him. "As they began to take me to the car, I told them ... I never left the hospital property. And that's when he [a police officer] turned and said, 'Well you're off hospital property now,'" Dukes told ABC News. The incident unfolded just before 5 p.m. on June 9 outside Freeport Health Network Memorial Hospital in Freeport, Illinois, and was caught on cellphone video that went viral after Dukes posted it on his Facebook page.

His hospital bill just evaporated and he'll pocket thousands from both the hospital and the pigs.

"In a police report of the incident, the hospital security guard told officers that after he questioned Dukes about why he was leaving the hospital attached to an IV, Dukes and the two men with him "got in my face" and began cursing at him. The security guard told police he felt "extremely threatened," acccording to the report."

That'll be easy enough to see if it's true or not on the hospital's security cameras.

I have to admit the black-face was racially insensitive, though.
