Our hearts go out to the victims and families of the DC Navy Yark tragedy on September 17, 2013.
Washington DC has many good things: monuments, an educated work force, and alot of people who want to do good for others by serving in government. However, there is a dark side to Washington DC.
Yesterday exposed that dark side, where the system of elaborate security and background checking overlooked and, even gave privileged access to, a seriously mentally disturbed individual who needlessly gunned down dedicated public servants at the Washington Navy Yard.
The gunman, Aaron Alexis, had a history of hearing voices. He had even been seen by the VA hospital in Washington DC only a month ago — the same hospital where Ariana-Leilani’s father works as a “physician” and who is failing to take proper care of Ariana-Leilani’s Severe Chronic Neutropenia. The qualifications for being a physician at a VA hospital are pathetically low, hence the low quality care. Isn’t it ironic that Dr. Janice Orlowski, who spoke to the press for the Medstar Washington Medical Center, expressed such sympathy for the victims of the shooting, but has shown no sympathy for Ariana-Leilani when Ariana-Lelani’s situation came before Dr. Orlowski as a conflicted member of the Board of Medicine of Washington DC.
We already have 13 people dead because the failings of the VA Hospital and Washington DC to recognize and treat mental illness in one individual. Will Ariana-Leilani be next victim due to the failings of these institutions?
