SON CHARGED WITH MURDER
RESPONSE FROM TEXAS MEDICAL BOARD
TEXAS MEDICAL BOARD CONFIRMS NO EMS OR PHYSICIANS WERE CONTACTED
APD CALL RECORD FAILS TO MENTION PRIORITY 1 911 CALL ONLY MENTIONS 311 CHECK WELFARE
APD CALL RECORD TRIES TO CLAIM LIVING PATIENT WAS ALREADY DECEASED
THIS IS A PRIORITY 1 MEDICAL EMERGENCY 911 CALL, NOT A CHECK WELFARE
APD DISPATCHER SENDS POLICE TO CHECK WELFARE OF ELDERLY MAN "NOT BREATHING"
Son detained while forced to watch elderly father be crushed to death by Austin first responders: Ambulance never dispatched to a 911 Priority 1 Medical Emergency
APD did not care if the patient lived or died - Life was of zero concern to them, only making a potential arrest. They did not even know if any crime had been committed and already determined a living patient would die on the scene - ZERO ARRESTS WERE MADE
On 11/11/18 Sunday Morning at 9:07 a.m. at the Red Roof Inn on S I-35, wife and son of grandfather and Arkansas resident, 64 y/o Richard G. White, frantically requested medical assistance and an ambulance from 911 dispatchers. Three 911 calls were made requesting an ambulance for an unconscious elderly patient having breathing troubles. The APD dispatcher told the first two callers that an ambulance had been dispatched and was on the way to the scene, however this was a lie. During the third call with a bystander and complete stranger, the dispatcher instructed him to perform CPR even though he stated he did not know how; simultaneously commanding him to do CPR while sending police to do a check welfare, instead of an ambulance. Really? The APD dispatcher simultaneously commanded the untrained stranger to perform CPR and sent Police, NOT an ambulance? The APD dispatcher changed the call from a 911 Priority 1 Medical Emergency to a non-emergency 311 Check Welfare call while commanding someone to do chest compressions on a LIVING heart patient - this is CHILLING COLD BLOODED. Instead of dispatching an ambulance as requested by all three 911 callers, the APD dispatcher lied, illegally changed the call to a 311 non-emergency and sent APD patrol officers and firefighters to "Check the Welfare" of the patient, violating Health and Safety Code, Texas Administrative Code, and the City-County Work Agreement which requires an ambulance to be dispatched immediately in a Priority 1 medical emergency.
Why is the APD 911 dispatcher instructing someone to perform CPR basic life-support, but refuses to dispatch an ambulance and instead changes the call to a 311 non-emergency? This is illegal and grossly malicious in the most disgusting way. The APD dispatcher ensured Richard (a Priority 1 patient) would never receive ANY medical treatment from a licensed medical professional but only be crushed by CPR until certain death; ensuring that he and the family would never see the inside of the major hospital and trauma center barely a mile away. Richard had ZERO chance of survival from the brutal chest compressions. Why are they performing CPR if they are not going to take the patient to the hospital. This is bizarre and painfully disgusting. Is this routine APD protocol? Sending AFD to "assist" in a call, but never sending EMS? Why on Earth would APD and AFD be dispatched to a 911 Priority 1 Medical Emergency with a LIVING patient instead of ATCEMS? Apparently saving lives is counter productive towards APDs goals. How could they charge someone with murder if nobody dies? Otherwise they would send ambulances before anything else, rather than lying to callers and not sending one at all, sending police instead.
Richard and his family waited frantically for an ambulance to arrive as promised, only to have APD and AFD arrive on scene and begin chest compressions that ultimately crushed Richard's chest in and caused severe internal bleeding and hemorrhaging. Richard began spewing blood and bodily fluids from his mouth as the firefighters looked around frantically and turned him on his side, dumping the fluids. The son was detained by APD and kept from speaking to firefighters and EMS, unable to communicate critical information regarding his medical history of COPD, Sleep Apnea, and a heart stent, and were unable to call his primary care physician or anyone for help.
Richard's son was detained and forced to watch firefighters crush their loved one's chest in for almost 40 minutes until police illegally demanded that firefighters cease efforts and abandon the patient. Richard's wife was questioned and made to turn away from Richard by police, but as more blood started coming out of Richard's mouth, they commanded her to go around the other side of the building away from Richard. Richard was covered with a white sheet, abandoned by EMS and firefighters and was never transported to the hospital.
Richard G. White 64 y/o grandfather and loved member of his community never received proper medical care or transport to a hospital. APD felt more inclined to interrogate his wife about drug activity in the city that they do not even live in, than aid in the critical patient care that Richard required. APD completely prevented any possibility of Richard ever receiving transport by an ambulance by never dispatching one, illegally seizing control of a medical emergency and detaining his family.
This is gross negligence, recklessness, and malicious intentional misconduct by all first responders on scene, which caused the wrongful and completely unnecessary death of Richard G. White.
911 PRIORITY 1 MEDICAL EMERGENCY ILLEGALLY CHANGED TO 311 NON-EMERGENCY BEFORE ANY FIRST RESPONDERS ON SCENE
THIS IS A 911 PRIORITY 1 MEDICAL EMERGENCY FOR AN ELDERLY HEART PATIENT, NOT A 311 NON-EMERGENCY
THERE WAS NEVER MENTION OF ASSAULT EXCEPT A "POSSIBLE" FROM THE 3RD CALLER WHO WAS A STRANGER/BYSTANDER BECAUSE HE DID NOT KNOW THE PATIENT AND CAME UP AFTER THE MEDICAL EMERGENCY STARTED
3RD CALLER WHO IS A BYSTANDER/STRANGER, LEAVING OUT THE 1ST TWO 911 CALLS
THE 911 APD DISPATCHER WAS THE ONE COMMANDING THE 3RD CALLER TO PERFORM CPR!
Rest In Peace Richard
EXCERPTS FROM APD REPORTS
WHY ARE POLICE DISPATCHED TO CHECK THE WELFARE OF A PRIORITY 1 PATIENT, YET NO AMBULANCE IS DISPATCHED?
Notice how police interrogation of the family is redacted from the report shown to the public and how there is no mention of Richard's wife - Richard's Legal Agency during the medical emergency
Why was Mrs. White not in communication with first resonders?
There is no mention of Cardiac Arrest on the police reports, only the fact that 911 calls were received for a patient not breathing
This record of APD CAD calls from 11/11/18 at the Red Roof Inn shows the first APD CAD call being received at 9:28 a.m. AFTER the first calls stated in the police reports, AFD reports and ATCEMS report
APD is the Public Safety Answering Point for all 911 calls within city limits, therefore it is impossible for APD to receive the call AFTER AFD or ATCEMS
Are they trying to hide something?
This is the response received from the Commission on State Emergency Communications (CSEC)
The Capital Area Council of Governments (CAPCOG) is the service provider for 911 communications in the Austin area
This is the response received from the CAPCOG
As you can see, APD is responsible for all 911 calls within the city of Austin
PUBLIC INFORMATION REQUEST FOR CALL LOGS, RECORDINGS AND BODY CAM FOOTAGE
RESPONSE FROM OFFICE OF POLICE OVERSIGHT
WHY IS THE CITY HIDING THIS INFORMATION FROM THE PUBLIC?
As you can see from the attached letters, the City of Austin and Austin Police Department are deliberately keeping the public from knowing the truth about what happened to Richard G. White
It is within all citizen's interest to know what kind of care the public will receive by our first responders
DEMAND CALL LOGS AND BODY CAM FOOTAGE BE RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC

SON CHARGED WITH MURDER
MAP OF INCIDENT
Notice the 9 EMS stations surrounding the Red Roof Inn (center)
REPORTS RECEIVED FOLLOWING PUBLIC INFORMATION REQUEST
Here you can see just how close they were to St. David's hospital
Less than 2 miles away
How does a patient this close to EMS stations and a major medical facility never make it to the hospital?
Because police illegally seized control of the Priority 1 Medical Emergency and an ambulance was never dispatched to the scene
AFD INCIDENT REPORTS
This is the first 911 call made by Richard's wife for Respiratory Priority 1
This is the second 911 call from the receptionist at the hotel - notice how the call is changed to a 311 Cardiac Arrest before any first responders are on scene
A 311 call is a non-emergency call.
How does a Priority 1 call change to a 311 non-emergency call?
There are multiple discrepancies in their reporting of the incident
At first they state that ambulance M15 was on scene, but later they claim M28 was on scene - Which is it, or are they just sloppy in their false reporting because they know an ambulance never arrived on scene?
They also state they received patient information from the patient's son, but how is that possible when he is being interrogated by Officer Hooker?
Where was Richard's wife, and why was she not in contact with EMS - She is Richard's legal agency and knows everything about his medical history, including his Primary Care Physician
Firefighters report the only care provided as Basic Life Support CPR (which is what killed Richard by crushing his chest)
They claim to be self assigned once they saw it was cardiac arrest, yet this is the same engine that was cancelled from the initial Respiratory Priority 1 call made by Richard's wife
Firefighters report being instructed to stop, but fail to qualify who exactly instructed them to stop - it was APD officers on scene who had the family illegally detained
Additionally, firefighters report zero EMS personnel on scene and zero death or injury, yet Richard was declared deceased on scene
Complaint currently pending investigation
COMPLAINT FILED TO DEPARTMENT OF STATE HEALTH SERVICES
There are multiple discrepancies in their reporting of the incident as well
Notice THE TRANSPORT SECTION IS LEFT BLANK
ATCEMS claim that M15 arrived on scene at 9:12 a.m., yet the transport section is blank
They name the third 911 caller as Robert, a complete stranger and bystander, yet fail to name the initial caller as Richard's wife, Mrs. White
Why is a random bystander's 911 call presiding over the wife of the patient?
Notice this is also when they attempt to qualify the police presence at the scene by stating that Robert mentioned a possible fight occurring
The call is changed from Respiratory Priority 1 to Cardiac Arrest after a fight BEFORE any first responders are on scene - this is illegal and completely negligent - Richard's wife and his Primary Care Physician are the most qualified to communicate Richard's condition and prior medical history
ATCEMS claim they arrived at 9:12 a.m. - before firefighters - yet all other reports of the incident detail that AFD personnel were the ones who initiated CPR (AFD arrived on scene at 9:14 a.m.)
Where is any mention of patient assessment with Richard's wife or son?
Why was transport never contacted; why was a receiving hospital never contacted; why was On-Line Medical Control never contacted - all violations of Texas Administrative Code (see DSHS complaint below)
HOW DOES MRS. WHITE DISAPPEAR FROM THE REPORTS WHEN SHE WAS THE FIRST 911 CALLER FOR RICHARD, HIS WIFE AND LEGAL AGENCY?
Apparently if 911 is contacted for a medical emergency, a possible arrest by APD takes precedence over care for the patient
NO ARREST WAS MADE AT THE SCENE BY APD - SO WHY WERE THEY THERE?
