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.

Calling into MSNBC's "AM Joy" on Sunday morning, Democratic presidential contender Julian Castro ripped into Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as a serial sexual predator and said that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the GOP are to blame for his being on the court.

Speaking with host Joy Reid, Castro renewed a call he made late Saturday night for Kavanaugh to be impeached over fresh allegations of sexual assault  before getting down to the heart of the matter.

"Do you believe there was misconduct in this case by the FBI and the Department of Justice or even by the senators who seemed uninterested in finding out of what really happened with this very brief investigation of Mr. Kavanaugh?" Reid asked.
