The wild wild south?
The town is in an uproar and the hospital has been on lockdown two nights this week. Killings and reprimands have shaken the city. It started with a guy who was stabbed, but survived, then somebody stabbed the first stabber and he came in as a full trauma code, with thoracotamy. the families spilled into the waiting room and fights broke out there and in the parking lot. this went on for an hour before we were able to get the police to even respond to our calls. The guy who was accused of killing this guy then had his house burned down the next day, then, three days later another man was shot in the stomach and killed in his yard. Online community message boards are filled with posts, supposedly from atlanta and houston gang members who threaten coming to town and carrying out revenge killings.
