The assault on Georges Karam by nursing home employee Jie Xiao took place in Ottowa, Canada.
The liberal press told us that we needed foreigners to care for the elderly because there weren’t enough white people to do the job. What the press forgot was that foreign cultures are often mean and cruel.
The Chinese may be intelligent, have a low crime rate, blah, blah, blah. However, there is a strong element of cruelty in their history. The victims of Chairman Mao can attest to that.
Immigrants probably aren’t needed to take care of the elderly. Higher wages are the traditional market solution to labor shortages in an industry.
Here’s an excerpt from the story. Watch the video at the link.
A personal care worker at a city-run long-term care home delivered 11 punches to the face of an elderly, immobile and largely non-verbal dementia patient, a video obtained by the Citizen reveals.
The high-definition video camera that recorded the attack was installed by the patient’s family and wasn’t even a secret to staff at the Garry J. Armstrong long-term care home on Island Lodge Road where the assault occurred.
Workers were made aware that the video system was being installed in the room of 89-year-old Georges Karam after the family grew increasingly concerned about the number of unexplained injuries he had suffered since moving into the residence two years ago.
The city scrambled to assure other residents and their families in the city-run long-term care home that “the safety and well-being of all of our residents is our number one priority,” after being contacted by the Citizen about the case. “We take our commitment to safety seriously,” wrote Janice Burelle, general manager of community and social services in a letter she sent to Mayor Jim Watson, council and city staff.
The video, which was provided to the Citizen by Karam’s family, shows the elderly man lying in bed as personal support worker Jie Xiao yanks him back and forth while removing his diaper. Karam suffers from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease and needs a wheelchair to move around.
An agitated Karam took a pair of swipes with a crippled and shaking hand at Xiao during the diaper change.
It was after a third swipe that came closer to Xiao’s face that the 44-year-old care worker unleashed a series of rapid punches with his gloved hand to the side of Karam’s face on March 8.
Xiao frequently paused between the blows, delivering two or three punches at time with his left hand as his right hand took hold of Karam’s arm. The sound of the fist making contact with Karam’s face is clearly audible on the video.
In between the punches, Xiao frequently raised a closed fist next to Karam’s face. Before delivering the final punch, Xiao appears to be swearing at Karam. Karam then lets out a shout. The whole assault lasts about 28 seconds.
Xiao then briefly leaves the room, only to return 27 seconds later. He then stands next to the bed, pointing at Karam’s hand and his own face, before making a gesture as if Karam should try hitting him again. Xiao then made a fist and pointed at Karam’s face.
Xiao then pulls Karam’s blankets up, closes Karam’s eyelids with his fingers and pats Karam on the head. Xiao then put a finger to his mouth in a shushing gesture before turning off the TV and the lights and leaving.
Last Tuesday, Xiao pleaded guilty to assault. A sentencing hearing is expected to be held later this year.
Patience and love are needed to be care workers. An Asian without those qualities would have no qualms hitting someone not of his race. Hell, he might have hit a fellow Asian for all we can tell.
He needs to find a new career.
Back in china.
