I experienced what I considered to be a crime. I tried to file a report and had no luck. I think this was awful. How can this be? I found the experience to be an atrocity.
Did I ask for police assistance? Yes. Many times at the top of my lungs and I didn’t get any help from the group I was engaged with who was conducting what I considered to be the crime. I then did call for police assistance and I found it difficult to understand why they didn’t want to take down my concern or do anything. I was scared a lot and worried that I might be harmed. I haven’t filed the report yet, but I have filed with the local hospital the initial complaints. That should start something. I plan to go to the VA as well. I think they should know. I normally do not have such awful things occur, but I did that day early in the AM. I cried. I was very sick. No one would really assist and I was harassed while I exercised my free rights to file a complaint after the main event. There were three security guards that harassed me while I wrote; the same that engaged in the criminal activity. Then the RN got involved and did the same. I was treated as if I was an imbecile. I was treated like I had no rights to human decency. I was dragged out not fully dressed by three security guards whom I feared my rape me. No one seemed to take it seriously. I am a human being. What is the problem here Santa Barbara? World? People? When I tried to follow up to get names I was blocked by security and then threatened to be removed from the grounds. When did it become a crime to ask for names to file complaints and to get assistance; perhaps even for future witnesses?
I will be filing many letters. I saw racism, sexism, threats, and inhuman treatment and it was at a hospital.
