The Missoula, Montana police have agreed to pay a local physician $365,000. for,--you know, the basic shit of beating the snot out of him for trying to assist a suicidal patient. That's right, the police arrested, charged, and jailed this good Samaritan; the police refused to provide him with emergency medical services when he had chest pains in jail; and , then released him without transportation to his car, home or office so that he ended up walking more than a mile to the hospital. Subsequently, 68 year old, Dr. Walter Peschel was hospitalized for three days.
Oh, and typical the Police tried to prosecute Dr.Peschel for obstructing police business but a Missoula jury acquitted him of those charges.
