TRUE DEMOCRACY SPRING 2001 TABLE OF CONTENTS
We all dread getting that phone call late at night from the police officer
telling us that a loved one has passed away from injuries sustained in an
auto accident. But do we always hear the true facts about what happened?
The families of William Thompson and Don Trevor Adderley were notified by
Hampton police of the deaths of their sons and told that paramedics had done
everything possible. The facts couldn't be further from the truth.
In Hampton, Virginia, Medic/Firefighters are deliberately withholding and
delaying care to minority patients who call 911, causing serious injury and
The evidence in this case is overwhelming and the investigative work by the
Hampton police is a total disgrace. The state of Virginia office of Emergency
Medical Services is actively investigating this case along with several
other similar cases.
On Thursday, May 17, 2001, in South Hill Virginia, at the South Hill Police
Department beginning at 1300 hrs., there is a meeting set to hear testimony
on the practices of the Hampton, Virginia fire department and its poor
treatment towards minorities that have caused deaths.
I am actively searching for members of the news media, activists and civil
rights organizations to attend this meeting. The facts on these cases will be
presented and with your help they will be exposed and others can be warned of
the dangers that may be lurking in their home towns. Other paramedics and
fire fighters from around the country have emailed me with responses of
observing the same activities where they are employed.
Please view the following web site and see some of the facts from the case to
be discussed. Please email me your comments if you can't attend the hearing
and I will read them to the investigators. Without your support this will
continue in America.
