1. Sad story, glad the kid didn’t die. As to, “If a patient throws a tray at a nurse and the staff responds with restraints, it can be considered a health care incident. If the same patient throws the same tray at a police officer, even one off-duty, who shoots in response, the encounter is subject to a criminal investigation.” This strikes me as a double standard, and a good reason NOT to have armed police officers moonlighting undercover in hospitals as “security guards.” How was this guy, whacked out of his mind on a psychoactive drug, supposed to know the security guard was also a cop? Did he identify himself as a police officer?
