Recently with several of the shooting incidents in Chattanooga the “victims” have refused to cooperate with any police investigation. I find it ironic that these so called victims who wander the streets at night with nothing to do but make trouble for themselves and others refuse to cooperate when they are shot. These idiots, yes I said idiots, don’t hold down a job and are generally a burden to society.
Who do you think pays for their expensive medical bills when they run to the hospital crying fix me I have been shot? News flash, we taxpaying, law abiding citizens who are at home in bed at 12 a.m. minding our business and sleeping in order to go to work are paying the thugs medical bills.
And what a shock it is that the Erlanger health system has to make cuts to their employees' pay and benefits because there are so many non-paying patrons at the hospital. I wonder how much unpaid debt at Erlanger hospital can be attributed to these non-paying, uncooperative “victims” thugs?
Maybe the hospitals need to start refusing to treat these thugs who do not cooperate with police investigations. Maybe if they are treated but refuse to cooperate with a police investigation the courts should order them to perform public service at the hospital to help cover the cost of their visit. But then again I doubt we would want them to bring their gang troubles to our hospitals and subject good paying patrons to the idiotic behavior they portray.
Ultimately when are we as a community going to start holding these people accountable for their behavior? I for one and sick of it.

When one of these thugs comes in for emergency treatment the staff should take all the gold off their fingers, around their necks and in their mouth with the full understanding that they can get their gold back when they pay their bill.
A few pounds of gold would sure make a dent in the indigent problem for Erlanger.
