Teen girl refuses treatment from ‘dirty’ black doctor after being stabbed in the back

Published

on

An 18-year-old girl was sentenced to a year of community service and fined after berating a black doctor who tried to treat her when she was stabbed earlier in May.

North Wales’ Daily Post reported that Zena Edwards was taken to a hospital by police when they found her drunk and unresponsive after spitting in the officers’ faces when they offered her a drink of water. After booking her, the officers took the 18-year-old Edwards to Glan Clwyd Hospital in the town of Rhyl, where doctors discovered she’d sustained a stab wound.

When a black doctor began trying to treat the teen, she started shouting.

“You can’t clean it,” Edwards yelled, “you are dirty yourself.”

According to defense attorney Andy Hutchinson, the 18-year-old was unaware of the stab wound because she was under the influence of alcohol.

“She is not a racist,” the attorney said, “but it was a poor choice of words.”

A judge ruled that in compensation for her disorderly behavior towards the officers and the doctor, Edwards must serve 12 months “community punishment” and 200 hours of unpaid labor. She was also fined 250 pounds to the doctor she berated and 150 pounds each to the officers she spat on and resisted, along with court fees.

On Saturday, Stewart was blasted by former CIA officer Evan McMullin.

McMullin was born in Provo, attended Brigham Young University, is Mormon and a also prominent conservative critic of Trump.

In 2016, McMullin ran against Trump as an Independent and received 21.3 percent of the vote in Utah during the general election. Trump also had problems in Utah during the Republican primary, receiving only 14 percent of the vote.

Trump ‘will not leave his office if he narrowly loses in 2020’: Conservative columnist issues dire warning

Published

on

President Donald Trump will fight to remain in power regardless of the outcome if the 2020 election is close, a conservative columnist warned on Saturday.

Andrew Sullivan blasted Trump in New York magazine, honing in on the commander-in-chief's lying.

"For Trump, lying is central to his disturbed psyche, and to his success. The brazenness of it unbalances and stupefies sane and adjusted people, thereby constantly giving him an edge and a little breathing space while we try to absorb it, during which he proceeds to the next lie," he wrote.
