Florida Healthcare Workers Arrested after Live-Streaming Themselves Abusing Vulnerable Dementia Patient

Two senior healthcare workers are facing felony charges after they live-streamed themselves abusing a dementia patient.

The upsetting video show Shy’Tiona Bishop, 20, and 18-year-old Jada Harris abusing the senior at an assisted living center in Northeastern Florida.

The healthcare workers live-streamed the abuse of the dementia patient on their Instagram accounts on April 3, and was subsequently aired during a press conference presided over by the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Monday, The Daily Mail reported.

The senior can be heard screaming as the pair repeatedly joke and laugh as they mock the patient.

At one point, the staffers deliberately block the woman from entering her bathroom before begrudgingly helping her put on a pair of pants.

Both women have since been fired.

“I’m sorry, yeah. She is embarrassing,” Harris can be heard saying in the clip, which was live-streamed on April 3.

Ivey also decried the state for setting both suspects’ bonds at $6,000 or less, with Bishop’s only set at $4,000 despite the range of offenses.

As The Daily Mail reported:

The meeting saw the sheriff unveil the elderly abuse case for the first time after receiving a tip from someone working at the facility, identified Monday as Market Street Viera in Melbourne, about the April 3 live stream and a week of investigations.

“I’m disgusted,” Ivey said during the meeting, which was also live-streamed.

“The perpetrators in this case are not only disgusting but they are vile individuals who live-streamed themselves abusing one of our elderly citizens who suffers from dementia.”

He continued “Abusing an elderly person or abusing anyone is disgusting enough, but to make matters even worse, they livestreamed the abuse.

“They actually put it up on a livestream platform so that their friends could watch it, laugh about it as they mocked this elderly person in her condition.”

The ensuing snippets laid bare the aforementioned behavior, and showed how followers of Harris’s account laughed along with the retirement home aides as they abused their elderly mark.

“Not only did their friends laugh, they actually made comments back and forth about how she should be dealt with and be put in a closet,” Ivey reiterated.

The facility said in a statement following the incident:

“We are shocked and horrified to learn of this incident of elder abuse at the hands of two individuals who were trusted to provide care for a vulnerable resident of our facility.”

“We take this situation very seriously and took immediate action to terminate the two individuals involved in this incident. The behavior depicted in the video footage live-streamed by these two people is abhorrent and will not be tolerated.”

I suppose that it would not matter if my suspicion is correct . . . I suspect that the victim in this incident is either White or Asian. There are no “street creds” to be garnered by abusing a black dementia patient. Any abuse against any helpless person by those thugs is inexcusable. My thoughts ARE tarnished against the entirety of the black cohort due to the constant unending barrage of news reports showing the black cohort committing crimes of all types at rates FAR BEYOND their percentage of the populace.

I have chosen to label the entirety of the USA black infestation as “America’s Bane.” I believe that description is apt. Sure, a small minority of that mob are civil, productive and are capable of positive contributions to a first-world country. Sadly, the numbers of quality blacks is far too small to overcme the immensity of the negatives the majority of that cohort inflicts upon the USA.
