In the trauma centre with shooting victims

La Presse went to the Sacré‑Cœur hospital trauma centre to see how shooting victims are handled even if they refuse treatment. A dramatic read.

Ted Rutland has, as usual, relevant things to say: “Apparently, no one thinks it’s a problem that police are sent to hospitals to interrogate gunshot victims – before they’ve contacted a lawyer, while a bullet is still lodged in their body, and while they’re high on painkillers.”
