AJC.comA troubled teenager who received a controversial heart transplant less than two years ago died Tuesday after he lost control of his car during a high-speed chase with Roswell police.
Stokes made international news in August 2013 after the media reported that Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston had not put him on a transplant list. The hospital ruled he was a bad candidate for the organ because of his background that suggested he would be “uncompliant” in treatment and had brushes with the law.
Stokes received a heart after his mother and critics from civil rights organizations contended he was denied the heart because he was poor, black and had trouble with the law, which his mother said was for fighting.
From a previous article on this case:
AJC.comThe family of Anthony Stokes on Sunday released to the media an Aug. 7 letter that states, in part, “the decision was made that Anthony is currently not a transplant candidate due to having a history of non-compliance, which is one of our center’s contraindications to listing for heart transplant.”
All this shit about "they don't wanna give him a heart because he is black" etc is purely made-up BS by his family. "Non-compliance" -- a term that some of the bleeding hearts are trying to bury because it sounds too mean for the poor little non-compliant shit -- almost always refers to medication and treatment plans.
Every damn day good people fucking die waiting on organs they will never see while this literal piece of human excrement has robbed someone of the chance at a continued life, all thanks to slimy "civil rights" groups that feel the need to bring up race in every fucking issue. This was a very simple, objective case of a disposable turd who didn't value his own life, nevermind anyone else's not following the treatment prescribed to him by the hospital to such an extent that he went on record as non-compliant yet the media and everyone else turned it into a race circus to get him a transplant.
It's revolting that a hospital can get bullied into picking one patient over another for the sake of a political statement.
This is the precious life that got save by the transplant:
