Some gang-bangin' thug was brought to the ER for a head injury he sustained in a fight with two other guys. Apparently, this poor guy was minding his own business and had no reason to be assaulted. I guess he was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. Pretty common story.
Well, his head CT was normal and I stapled his head laceration. After a while, he stopped being so aggressive with the nurses and myself and informed me that he just wanted to get home to see his girlfriend and kid. I asked him about his young son and told him we had stuffed animals in the ER, and that he should take one home to give to his little boy. He said fine so I gave him one. Prior to discharge from the ER, he simply threw the stuffed animal in the garbage and then spit on it. For all fathers out there, here is our role model.
Maybe this guy would be an excellent candidate for the first ever American sterilization experiment.
