Update on the Monica Yin Case

Colbert King follows up on his inital story about the mistreatment of Monica Yin, here (original article here).

King often writes stories of this nature, asking whether those most marginalized are receiving their human right to care. I might point out that this is not just a race issue--nothing ever is. He has been also following the case of David E. Rosenbaum, a New York Times reporter who was delivered as a "John Doe" after being attacked on the street and subquently died due to a number of incompetencies and negligent actions.

It's a sobering question that none of us know the answer to, but certainly we need to be asking, "Will I be treated as well as the next person if I get hurt?"
