My question involves police conduct in the State of:HI
Against your will, for about 6 hours till midnight. It was not just hospital as the Police and PMS told me. It was psychiatric emergency. I was wondering why they took all you clothes items away and you were not allowed to talk to other patients. All the male personnel incl. dr. were very rude to you. The cop has been talking to them for a long time. They also yelled at you when you asked what you are signing, and didn't want to give you a copy of what you signed even you asked for if 5,6 time and that by law they should do that without asking.
I was just going to get some fruits after lunch (gathering) in the membership club where they provided wheelchair and they always ready to help loading. I felt the weakness on my knees and buckled down after I returned the wheelchair. I wanted to made sure the club won't lost this expensive item. The buckling down happened many times and it's always unpredictable when it'd happened. Strangers and employees are always give me water and wheel me to my vehicle. I've never cause any trouble to anyone or any entity, well, except the time (like a few minutes?) and effort rendered for me.
Been weak and "sick" all my life and the aging def. making it worse. Gave up finding what's wrong after years of checkup with everything "normal". Whenever my body is in "extreme" stress, there's always shortness of breath, crying and screaming and uncontrollable shaking. It is scary for people who don't know me. But after the shaking and screaming subside, I feel so much better. This must have been some mechanism to elevate the stress to compensate the regular ways as my lung and heart function is extremely weak. There are a lot of things I can't put in my mouth. And I can't get dehydrate. Every time I went to hospital, it was miserable, got more sick this way or other and took me quite some time to recover, i.e. contracting flu (3 months), drug me wrong (1 month)...
Any way, the whole nightmare started when one couple in the food court insisted the club to call EMS. The EMS evokes horror to me. Just a few years ago, 2 pms almost killed me. Very long story, in short, they sat on me and choking me till I almost passed out, on purpose. They laughed with pleasure tying me up with my hands back like a mummy. Contacted police and complained to CEO, and lawyer. In the end, useless. no witness no evidence. Not only that, they got to put down in my medical record that I am "violent" to justify what they did to me, (I also got blood in my hands and clothes). Years of nightmares and psycho therapies, still haven't forgot. I vow never crawl on to the ambulance again.
Despite my strong protest that I needed to go home, the club called EMS and didn't want me to leave nor gave me any water until I told them I would get in trouble as I was dehydrated, Just after the employee agreed to get me to the bathroom for water. The paramedics came. Had I known what was going to happened, I'd do anything in my power to get away from the scene. All I had was my car key. I wish I had my cell with me.
I don't know why they need to send 4 cops and 3 PMS. And they are all hostile, lining up there blocking my way to the parking lot. By that time, I am shaking and screaming for water. Nobody did anything eventually the club employee got me so sparkling water, which made my heart beat even more violently. I requested pure water with nothing in it. The cops and PMS didn't budge. One PMS yelled after I showed them the sparkling water, again, it was the employee who went to get me the water which I pour down in a second. As the PMS order the employee not to give it to me any more. I struggled to crawl to get the water myself. They pushed me down the ground. The same PMS yell at me like thunder storm waving her hand "don't you ever touch me" when I held on her calf a litter to raise my head to breath out. Astonished, I looked at her name tag and tell them to go away as I don't need them and I hasten to get my water. It was basically life and death situation for me. Looking back I realize I was very lucky because there were tons of people there eating around us so they didn't restrain me from getting my water.
They didn't allow me to have the wheelchair the club offered to my car. So I struggled to get up to my car, as they said if I can't stand up, they had to take me. Mistake. A cop said, how could you do that to a cop? What did I do to him? trying to save my own life and refuse to go to hospital? female cop said "o---h---, she actually can walk"; 2 cops caught up to "support" me but when I needed to lean on him he got away saying why didn't I walk on my own, then 4 of them pushed me on the ground when I located my car where there's nobody else anymore except 1 employee peeing from some distance with concern. I gave them the info. they asked, let them poke me for blood, tell them about my body why I don't want to go to hospital in the ambulance, so they'd leave me alone. What a dumb mistake. you don't want to go to hospital? they'd make sure you go. Don't want to go with ambulance? they said they have to handcuff me if I go with the cop. Never been handcuffed before, it hurts, my wrist are red and swollen. I asked the cop is it even legal the cop said he talked to police psychiatrist, I am in danger of myself and everyone. hmm, I am 100lb weak and sick being pushed on the ground all of them towering over me. I am educated (post graduate) never been physical with anybody never break any law. When I see a sick bird on the ground, I'd either take them to human society or try to nurse it myself. I asked to speak to their psychiatrist, the cop said no I couldn't talk to their psychiatrist. The cop also said that I am so dangerous, it's not even safe for the 3 paramedic to deal with me. They shoveled me into the back the police car, drag me out into the emergency room telling people that I could walk I was just faking it no need to give me any chair or wheelchair. It's been a while before the pimpled female cop took off the handcuff telling me to behave they'd just doing the job. I found I have bruise scratches here and there. My arm has bruise from the cop's thumb and hands when she dragged me. The mental side is way more profound. I worry can't eat nor sleep much.
I am deeply concerned how from this point I'd go around in public, esp. taking care of survival needs like grocery. Very stressful and difficult time. Already has so many unfortunate events besides of this one. The thought of somebody powerful enough to cut you off air, water (I may not be lucky next time) and take away your freedom just like that, or may even force drug into your body is very scary. It can easily be lethal situation for my body.
Appreciate if anybody knows better about the situation:
-- can they handcuff me? I def. think they used unreasonable restrain
-- when can they force me to hospital against my will? Obviously, they didn't get me to hospital to help me. In the hospital, all they did was to get me blood pressure and get urine sample. I refused to be poked to give them more blood.
-- can I file a complaint without names and badge #? there were so many witness around I wonder how come nobody interfere
-- why the fact that I couldn't stand up got me to psychiatric unit? Every time before they leave me they ask me ridiculous questions like would you hurt yourself? would you hurt somebody else? Sounds so absurd. I am really afraid that they'd establish that I am a psycho and they can do anything to me.
-- Is it a mistake that I told them I am alone have nobody to depend on? Of course, I could call around and the thought of bothering people becomes minor had I known what were to happened.
-- Is there anything I could do not to have to get PMS and cops get involved when I buckle down, which I can't prevent?
-- What can I do act to make the best of it if PMS and cops are called in again next time?
-- Would it work if I get some doctors note to say no need to call EMS, cops, or that I am not psycho in danger of any one, or I am totally alright to drive a vehicle, or would doctor write something like that?
Thanks a lot. Sorry it's kinda long.
