Comment No private company should stick their neck out (Score 3, Interesting) 78

I think the NSA is doing what NSA needs to do.

No private company should stick their neck out for the government.

From the article:

Because she blew a blood alcohol level of nearly 0.40, police procedure is to take the accused to a hospital, as that level is considered extremely life-threatening.

Why would medical professionals knowingly release a patient despite the knowledge she had life-threatening levels of alcohol in their body? Assuming they didn't diagnose her of the auto-brewery syndrome right away, you would think they would at least keep her overnight for observation.
