Tallahassee: Waiting for autopsy results in possible police misconduct and hospital misconduct death

A 57 year-old woman Barbara Dawson who refused to leave the hospital after release, claiming she still was having difficulty breathing was cuffed and forcibly removed by police. The officer arrested her and brought her outside while she continued to demand being returned to her oxygen tank. The woman collapsed next to the patrol car and died shortly after she was wheeled back inside. The NAACP and her relatives are demanding the event be investigated as possible police and/or hospital staff abuse.
