Yes I also saw this in news video but nothing will be done to the putrid perp due to present day Wokeness. At age 76 I avoid or minimize my contact with VA and other government types who are own their own little power trip over us vets and older folks.  Don't need or want interaction with them or to be friends with them.  Doing just fine without the h

Yikes! And it gets worse... Look who the employee was:

Quote

Lawrence Gaillard Jr., a patient advocate at the clinic, has been identified by the VA as the employee. He was arrested the day of the beating, April 28, and charged with felony assault.

I do not know if anyone has posted about this story yet but I wanted to get this story out so everyone can see just how crazy it really is at the Atlanta VA. Below is the FOX News Story played this morning. YES the employee is out of jail and back at work at the Atlanta VA. The veteran that was beaten spent 3 days in the hospital for his head injury.

Here is the local Atlanta Channel 2 WSB News report.

Atlanta VA Police blocked the release of the video and the arrest record. The VA Police would not even turn anything over to Atlanta Police as they should because it was two people who live in Georgia and it becomes a state matter also. The reporter finally got the arrest record from the US Marshals who had to get involved because of the jurisdiction dispute.

This is a developing story but watch FOX News this weekend on the morning show because Pete Hegseth says he will be talking about a lot of other problems that are ongoing in the VA like blocking VA Mission Act and covering up scandals.

@BB2005Welcome to Hadit! Wish is could have been for other reasons than what happened to this veteran. Many of us are wondering why he is back on the job and not placed on administrative leave or transferred in a role where he is not interacting professionally with other vets.

Well he is a federal union VA employee and they can do no wrong in eyes of other VA pukes and federally paid politicians.  Judges are also government paid perps.   The VA doctor psychiatrics in Texas in 2000 (Vashingan) that sexually assaulted vet patients and even his own staff at Austin CBOC was found guilty of several charges by a district court jury but the filthy putrid Travis county Judge reduced his crimes from felonies to misdemeanors and no jail time.  The pervert also attempted an assault on me but it didn't work out.  I still have copies of the charge sheets, arrest record and local news coverage of his trial. He was probably moved by VA to another state to continue his well paid work.  Way too many are scu

Hopefully he has family members that actually seen the footage. Apparently he is in a nursing home so therefore he cannot defend himself. Family members can file charges on his behalf.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
