Treating others how you would want to be treated is a great thing and it’s funny (tragically) in this case how nastiness comes fully around. It reminded me of the bible verse Luke 6:31 “Do to others as you would have them do to you” I am sure the passage is slightly different in many bibles (Yeah why is that?) but the overall message is the same.
EMT Accused of Ignoring Dying Woman Is Shot Dead
(July 19) — Police are searching for the gunman who fatally shot a New York City emergency medical worker under investigation for allegedly ignoring a dying pregnant woman.
Jason Green, 32, was shot twice Sunday at 5 a.m. after his friend was turned away from a nightclub, Detective Marc Nell said. Police said that after Green got into an altercation with a man, a gunman got out of a car, shot him twice in the torso and fled.
There were no arrests or suspects as of this morning, Nell said.
Green and another EMT were suspended for a month without pay following the Dec. 9 death of Au Bon Pain cashier Eutisha Rennix, and the case is still under investigation, according to reports.
Rennix, 25, was in distress when employees in the restaurant asked Green and the other worker to help her. The two reportedly said they were on a break and told employees to call for help. An ambulance was called but Rennix, who was six months pregnant, and her fetus did not survive.
Rennix died of cardiopulmonary arrest brought on by chronic bronchial asthma, The New York Times reported.
Meanwhile, Rennix’s relatives offered sympathy to Green’s family.
“As a mother who has been through this kind of loss, I have to feel for his family,” her mother Cynthia told the New York Post. “Even though what he did to my daughter was an injustice, I am sorry for him and, especially, for his mother.”
Rennix’s sister, Marva, told the paper: “We thought what he did was inhuman. But he didn’t deserve [to be shot]. You have to live your life right, because when you do wrong things, life has a way of bringing bad things back to you.”
New Yorkers who live near the nightclub said the area is troublesome, plagued by noise and violence.
“I hate to say it, but we’ve been waiting for something like this to happen,” Silvia Beam, president of the Vandam Street Block Association, told the Post.
Police have not tied the Green’s shooting to the death of Rennix.
“There is no indication that is the case,” police spokesman Paul Browne told the New York Daily
