Yesterday, Dr. Michael Davidson, a cardiovascular surgeon was shot and killed at Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston.
Stephen Pasceri, the man responsible for the shooting, then took his own life. Pasceri apparently was angry with Dr. Davidson over the treatment of his mother who passed away back in November.
This one kind of hit home for me because of my father’s recent triple bypass surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. The work cardiologists and their staffs do on a daily basis is incredible. But even the best doctors cannot prevent death.
Pasceri’s father passed away in 2011 and after being presented with an $8,000 hospital bill from Massachusetts General Hospital and complained to then Senator John Kerry and Congressman Jim McGovern about it although the family had no issue with the treatment he had received.
Pasceri lived in Millbury, Massachusetts (about an hour west of Boston) where he worked as an accountant and was active in his church. According to local authorities, Pasceri was licensed to carry a gun, but police had not any involvement with him or his family aside from medical issues.
Gun control advocates may make an issue of Pasceri being licensed to own a gun, but there was no indication he would do such a heinous thing. His sister is absolutely bewildered by his behavior. There are times when otherwise law abiding people just snap and this appears to have been the case here with tragic consequences. No law could have prevented such a thing.
