MO Hospital Files Charges Against a Woman who was Attacked by Their Guard
In October 2018 a Missouri hospital filed charges against a black woman who was beaten by one of their security guards in July. The woman had checked herself into the hospital, but stepped outside with an IV port for fresh air when the guard attacked her. Her lawyer said that she did nothing wrong and that she has suffered an injustice. This is an example of over-policing of black bodies and, as such, is an example of institutionalized racism.
