I guess I don't understand as much as I thought I did about the VA. Why in the world would they let anyone, much less a nurses aide, stay employed until the sentencing after beating a patient to death? I read more and more amazing articles everyday.

Fredrick Harris, a nurse’s aide is still working at the Veterans Affairs Department hospital in Alexandria, Louisiana, despite charges that he beat 70-year-old veteran Charles Lee Johnson to death in 2013.


Though Francis Brian, Jr., the local coroner, found that Johnson had died of blunt force trauma, an internal VA investigation found his death to be accidental, according to The Daily Caller.

This is completely unbelievable. Any other job that aide would be fired before the story even broke to the media!

I will keep my opinions to myself until I have all the FACTS and not speculate.

It's because the death was ruled accidental.

CPT (Join to see), So, he's saying " I didn't mean to beat him to death, but I did, and it was accidental." Just laying his hands on a veteran in the VA hospital, you would think he would at least be fired.
