Police allege the same two men robbed patients in four other local hospitals during the past while.
The patient — who was dying of brain cancer, and in fact died a few moments after being robbed — apparently brought so much jewellery to the hospital because she had been burglarized at home in the past.
I’m not going to rant on about what an outrageous outrage this is, how society is going to the dogs, how in my day we never had thieves, et cetera, et cetera. Mostly because I don’t actually believe it. But I will say, in the greater scheme of things, were conscience, morals and ethics are important and worth considering — well, even I’m surprised.
