Nurse Suspended Over Facebook Posts About Police Shooting Victim by katty : April 01, 2018, 08:22:15 PM
Sacramento Nurse Faith Linthicum has reportedly been placed on administrative leave by Kaiser Permanente after allegedly saying Stephon Clark, 22, deserved to be killed “for being stupid.” Clark died in his grandmother’s backyard after being shot by the Sacramento police and an autopsy revealed he was shot in the back 8 times - he was unarmed.

The following screenshots were reportedly taken from Linthicum's Facebook account.


“Can we protest the deaths of all the people shot by black people too?”


“Yeah but he was running from the police jumping over fences and breaking in peoples houses… why run??!!! He deserved it for being stupid.”
The Sacramento Bee reported that Kaiser had placed Linthicum on administrative leave during the investigation, they did not disclose if she had been terminated. The hospital released the following statement:

"Kaiser Permanente does not tolerate hate or discrimination and has a long history of embracing diversity and inclusion – it remains a place where we welcome everyone. We want to emphasize that the comments expressed by this employee, who is no longer with the organization, do not in any way reflect Kaiser Permanente’s views or actions."

Activist Christina Arechiga screen-shotted Linthicum’s facebook comments across social media - the post quickly went viral. Archegina’s cousin was shot 13-times and killed by Sacramento police, she shared the following caption,

“I gave birth at Kaiser in Sacramento, it was a horrifying experience plagued with racist nurses and doctors. Kaiser Roseville Women And Children's must do something about these racists once they out themselves. How can we trust our lives, the lives of our black and brown babies to these people?"

The screenshots have been shared over 2,000 times and have gained attention from international major news media.
