Green Beret denied right guaranteed to illegal immigrants


PARK SAYS THEY MAY INVEST IN THOSE AFTER TODAY’S TRAGEDY. IN GIBSONTON, VICTORIA PRICE, 8 ON YOUR SIDE. STEVE ANDREWS GIVING A VOGUES TO THE VOICELESS AND TAPING THE POWERFUL TO TASK. NOW 8 ON YOUR SIDE INVESTIGATES. HE IS AUTO GREEN BERET, ONE OF AMERICA’S BEST. BUT HE IS ALSO A VICTIM OF MILITARY MALPRACTICE AND JUSTICE DENIED. AMERICA’S MILITARY IS CAPABLE OF UNLEASHING SHOCK AND AWE. BUT WHEN IT COMES TO HOLDING MILITARY DOCTORS ACCOUNTABLE FORMAL PRACTICE, 8 ON YOUR SIDE SENIOR INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER STEVE ANDREWS TELLS US OUR ACTIVE DUTY SERVICE MEMBERS ARE QUITE SIMPLY HANDCUFFED. Reporter: EVERY MEMBER OF THE MILITARY NEEDS TO BE AWARE OF THIS, ALL 1 BOY 3 MILLION OF YOU. ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IN THIS COUNTRY HAVE A BETTER SHOT AT HOLDING DOCTORS ACCOUNTABLE FORMAL PRACTICE THAN OUR ACTIVE DUTY SERVICE MEMBERS, JUST ASK THE GREEN BERET SERGEANT. Reporter: THE ARMY DOCTORS DID NOT INFORM THE GREEN BERET THAT HE HAD A SPOT ON HIS LUNG. NOT ONCE. TWICE. KNEW RICH AND HIS FAMILY ARE DEALING WITH STAGE FOUR TERMINAL CANCER. WIFE MEGAN. IT IS NOT SOMETHING I WANT TO THINK ABOUT. NOT FOR MYSELF, NOT FOR HIM, BUT ESPECIALLY FOR OUR GIRLS. Reporter: A FEDERAL LAW BARS ACTIVE DUTY SERVICE MEMBERS FROM SUING THE GOVERNMENT FOR INJURIES THAT ARISE FROM MILITARY SERVICE. AND THERE’S A LOT OF BAD LAW OUT THERE AND A LOT OF BAD LAW GETS FIXED. Reporter: THE ATTORNEY. BUT AS IT STANDS RIGHT NOW, OUR ACTIVE MILITARY MEMBERS DO NOT HAVE A RIGHT TO LEGAL RECOURSE. Reporter: RICH TESTIFIED BEFORE CONGRESS EARLIER THIS YEAR TO CHANGE THAT LAW AND THE HOUSE AGREED AND VOTED TO ALLOW MILITARY MALPRACTICE VICTIMS LIKE RICH THEIR DAY IN COURT. AND A FORMER MILITARY PROSECUTOR NOW AT HERITAGE FOUNDATION IN WASHINGTON SAYS CHANGING THE LAW IS NOT NECESSARY. WE ALREADY HAVE A SYSTEM IN PLACE, A FAIR SYSTEM IN PLACE THAT COMPENSATES PEOPLE FOR NEGLIGENT ACTS BY SERVICE MEMBERS. EITHER THEIR EXCELLENT WAS MADE WITH AN AGENDA OR HE JUST DOES NOT KNOW THE LAW. Reporter: IT IS THE FEDERAL TORTS CLAIMS ACT. IT ALLOWS PRIVATE CITIZENS TO SUE THE GOVERNMENT FOR NEGLIGENT, BUT WHEN RICH AND MEGAN FILED A CLAIM TO SUE OVER THE FEDERAL CLAIMS ACT, THE ARMY INFORMED THEM SINCE RICH WAS ACTIVE MILITARY, THE DOCTRINE BARRED THEM FROM SUING. OUR ACTIVE DUTY ARE COMPLETELY BARRED FROM BEING ABLE TO PURSUE MA’AM PRACTICE CLAIMS, EVEN SEXUAL ASSAULT CLAIMS. Reporter: AND THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE ABUSES THE FER EASE DOCTRINE ALLOWING BAD DOCTORS TO GO UNPUNISHED. IT IS JUST NOT FAIR. IT IS NOT FAIR THAT IT WAS MISSED AND HE WASN’T TOLD AND THERE’S A POSSIBILITY OUR KIDS WILL GROW UP WITHOUT A FATHER. Reporter: NO, IT IS NOT FAIR. THE FER EASE DOCTRINE WAS A LAW DRAWN UP TO PROTECT FROM LITIGATION MED IRKS AND DOCTOR WHOSE WERE ON THE BATTLE FIELD. RICH STAYSCAL IS IN NORTH CAROLINA AND HE BECAME A VICTIM OF MILITARY MALPRACTICE. THIS SAILED THROUGH THE HOUSE DO YOU EXPECT SOME PROBLEMS IN THE SENATE? YEAH, I THINK YOU’RE GOING TO HEAR WHAT CAME OUT OF THE MOUTH OF MR. STILLSON COMING OUT OF THE SENATE. IT HAS BIPARTISAN SUPPORT, THROW, BUT THE SENATE LEADERSHIP HASN’T QUITE WARMED UP TO IT YET, AND YET ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT CANS SUE DOCTORS FORMAL PRACTICE AND EVEN PRISONER CANS SUE CORRECTIONS FACILITIES PHYSICIANS, BUT THE MILITARY CAN’T HOLD ITS OWN DOCTORS ACCOUNTABLE. AND SO MANY SIMILARITIES BETWEEN THIS STORY AND OTHER WHERE IS THE MILL STAIR VETERANS ARE THE ONES THAT ARE SOMEHOW PENALIZED UNDER A SYSTEM THAT SHOULD PROTECT THEM. THEY’RE HEROES. THEY’RE OUT THERE PROTECTING US. WE SHOULD RETURN THE FAVOR. THANK YOU, STEVE. IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM YOU WANT
