at my first nursing job, i took care of a guy with a police escort and multiple superficial lacerations. dude was cuffed to the bed, and had that thousand yard stare thing going on.
his lacerations were from his overzealous stabs at an elderly couple. he attacked them walking out of Target in broad daylight. just snapped, and chopped these poor people up in public. the man died at the trauma center, but the lady lived a miserable fear-filled life for a while, and eventually died months later.
i know, KNOW i would have emptied my pistol into him, if only i was there. nobody helped those people. nobody even rammed the bastard with a shopping cart, or anything.
