“I Want an Apology”: Black Doctor Who Tests Homeless for Coronavirus Handcuffed by Miami Police

Published on 12 Nov 2020 / In Film & Animation

We speak with Dr. Armen Henderson, an African-American doctor who was handcuffed and detained outside his home Friday as he was wearing a mask and preparing for a volunteer shift to test homeless people for COVID-19. “I want the officer held accountable. There’s no way that you racially profile me and then you arrest me, detain me, during a pandemic, when you have no mask on, where hundreds of police officers throughout Miami-Dade County have tested positive,” says Dr. Henderson, who is an internal medicine physician, assistant professor of medicine at the University of Miami and an organizer with Dream Defenders.

Seems like staged fiction. More mask agenda, and the homeless are a bigger issue to consider than the Gov virus. The fact that homeless exist while other people have more than they could ever need. Notably the top suits pushing the Gov virus.
If only a person from 1000 a.d. could travel to the present to see all these pussies making a big deal about a supposed new flu. Pretty sure most people already have a more serious medical issue than a 1 to 2 week discomfort of an illness that's been around since before we were all born. I know I do. I rough through it without any medical aid because first of all it's not in my income range. And second it's all a scam anyways. It's not the healthcare industry, it's just another highly profitable service industry. If they worked on cars they would be out of business they are so incompetent and dishonest.
Worst part is trusting the media or Gov.
Making a big deal about him having the medical mask on is similar to worrying about the color of his t-shirt and shoes. So what? It's a virtue signal fashion statement now. And meanwhile the big execs, Gov dictators, and China are reaping the benefits of a popular new product. While the Western middle class is destroyed, hiding behind the mask they wasted their money on. Should of bought healthier food instead. But I'm in the pigpen USSA. 300 lb'ers hiding behind masks lol. They suddenly care about their health I guess.
