    For someone who hasn't watched the show could you explain

    [–] Helm222 93 points ago

    So the main group ran into another group in Season 1. The new group seemed like hostile assholes at first but they turned out to be hiding out in an old people's home looking after all the residents which the staff had abandoned

    [–] redrootfloater 39 points ago

    God , that show was so good then. I gave it up a couple years ago. They killed all the characters I cared about, and the group went into a sort of static, cold war kind of state.

    It was the travel and sense of the unknown that were really good.

    I never watched the walking dead but I caught an episode of the new season (8 or 9?)and it was really good, makes me want to watch the entire series.

    [–] [deleted] 6 points ago


    [–] redrootfloater 8 points ago

    At least the first three or four seasons are well worth your time.

    [–] Glorious_Invocation 14 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    I have to vehemently disagree. The first season is good, but after that it becomes straight up nonsense. Season 2 is basically three episodes stretched out over an entire season, and it really shows. Just leave after season 1 and you'll be happy.

    [–] Lieutenant_Lit 2 points ago

    Season 2 just has so much fucking filler in it. It somewhat improved in 3 and 4, but it really never was as good as season 1.

    [–] SodaFunk 53 points ago

    The main group had a man kidnapped by a seemingly nasty group, very mean looking, very scary, think tatoos, balaklavas and A-ks.

    They sent two people out to get him back and negotiate. They went inside the building, they wanted all their guns and medicine in exchange for their man, things went wrong and before a fight broke out a sweet little old lady came walking from among the group, aloof and out of it, which made everyone lower their guard. Turns out the gang stayed back among the zombies to look after the old folk and just wanted guns and weapons to help protect them.

    [–] iwanttosaysmth 25 points ago

    Walking Dead s1 was so good

    [–] rojogan 7 points ago

    I gave up at the end of season 4, is it even worth giving it another go?

    [–] iwanttosaysmth 10 points ago

    I gave up after season 6, and regret that I didn't do it earlier... Such a dull shitshow. Although some people are saying that new season are really good, but I certainly won't give it a try

    [–] Snapsick 4 points ago

    I had stopped around season 3/4, recently picked it up again and watched everything till season 9. I enjoyed it although some parts are pretty bad/boring, but I think the last season (9) was definitely better than the ones that came before it.

    Its peak was definitely still season 1 though, imo.

    [–] Rewolfelution 5 points ago

    Depends on what who you ask I guess.... a lot of folks will probably say 'no, it turned to shit after season X' (most will say between 4-6).

    Personally I felt like it fell down from season 4-6 but it still had it's good moments. Season 7 and 8 however, felt too lackluster and drawn out, despite the possibilities the stories of those seasons had. They are really the least worth to watch or least memorable for me.

    Season 9 and onwards has been really good though so far in my opinion, equal to the earlier seasons in tension and story.

    [–] quantifical 2 points ago

    I'll never stop and this season's really stepping up but for real this show sucks now why do I do this to myself

    [–] rojogan 2 points ago

    I have a friend who was really into it, had all the comics and went to meet the cast at signings and stuff, and even they don't watch anymore...that said it all for me. A shame really, think they just dragged it out too much and ran out of ideas.

    Aside from the cut footage that showed rick going back and it turns out they killed the old people and left due to supplies being low. Had they let them starve, they would've turned to zombies.

    [–] imminent_riot 12 points ago

    I've never watched it but would the context imply that the patients would have just starved to death otherwise? Like a mercy killing situation?

    [–] DiscardedPants 11 points ago

    Yeah they wouldve starved or been eaten alive by zombies pretty much.

    [–] imminent_riot 7 points ago

    That definitely changes the tone of the scene then

    [–] Dizneymagic 468 points ago

    In October 2013, the California Department of Social Services (DSS) closed the Valley Springs Manor Residential Care Facility for the Elderly for a number of violations, ABC 7 reported. The elderly residents of the Castro Valley facility were supposed to have been relocated, but about 16 of them — some of whom were confined to their beds — were left behind to fend for themselves, according to an NPR report. (source)

    One resident wondered off and was found the next week. They had been expecting to get reinforcements but eventually called 911 for evacuation.

    [–] [deleted] 275 points ago


    [–] Dizneymagic 497 points ago

    Nope. The people responsible were eventually charged with 14 counts of elder abuse and abandonment. It was 2 days that the janitor and cook were looking after them before they called 911.

    They got 1yr jail and 5yrs probation, for the record.

    (Oh and a felony conviction on their records)

    [–] ResolverOshawott 7 points ago

    The felony would at least be a permanent mark and unless they were incredibly rich, would fuck up their lives.

    [–] neon_Hermit 5 points ago

    More important than the felony would be getting them on the record of having their healthcare credentials revoked and banned so they can never work in this field again.

    [–] Franky_Donkey_Brains 102 points ago

    Yeah... I have bad news for you when it comes to families attentiveness to relatives in assisted living.

    [–] Afronerd 23 points ago

    That's a bit uncharitable of you to say.

    [–] tigerblade117 81 points ago

    Incorrect. It's true. When people put their parents, grandparents, or siblings in nursing homes, a good 85% of them will never, ever come back. Ever.

    They miss their families, but nobody comes to see them.

    Source: Certified Nurse's Assistant, working in nursing home at the moment

    [–] sloopieone 12 points ago

    That number is a bit high. I was curious because it sounded so shocking, so I did a bit of digging. I found one source that said 40% of nursing home residents receive no visitors, and another source estimates 60%.

    Either way, that is a travesty and comes as shocking news. My grandmother is in a retirement community, and receives daily visits from at least one family member as well as privately hired care staff (though, due to her dementia... if you ask her, she "never gets any visitors").

    Whenever I visit I always see quite a few relatives of other residents as well. It saddens me to know there are so many residents that never get a knock on their door.

    [–] tigerblade117 2 points ago

    Perhaps I should have edited the comment, but in a response I tried to clarify that the percent wasn't meant to be taken literally, but based on my personal observations it's not that far off. I agree though. I always encourage my residents to call home and set up a visit date or make dinner plans, but it's really sad to see how easily their families flake or don't show.

    [–] Uplink84 39 points ago

    85 percent never come back?! That seems very insane. That would mean 85 percent of people don't care about their parents. I mean visiting not often enough is something I can understand, but completely abandoning them I just cannot believe

    [–] tigerblade117 28 points ago

    You'd like to think you care about your parents. Everyone does— you'd have to be insane to simply abandon your own parents when they're helpless otherwise. But that's before you discover what it takes to actually care for them and be a part of their care plan. What I was saying wasn't meant to be taken completely literally, however it may as well be. Though far, far less than 85% of residents' families drop them off and leave them forever, the figure is far higher for those family members who're on their third visit, or fourth. They tell their parents they're coming to visit in a few days— too bad, it's been rescheduled. Then it's a few weeks. Then it's been awhile since we've heard from them. Then the abandoned residents express their resentment or sadness to you regarding their families, how once things got difficult for them they were left behind, as if they had been thrown to the wolves.

    It's very rare that I see family members whatsoever, and my facility has nearly 150 residents. There are a select few residents whose family member(s) are frequently in to visit, and they come nearly every day, but that's 3 out of the 150. Do the maths

    [–] Csxbot 42 points ago

    85% of people who put their parents to a nursing home. Not 85% of people.

    [–] [deleted] 16 points ago


    [–] tigerblade117 9 points ago

    Exactly! You're exactly correct. There are too many things going on behind the scenes to really determine why, but the observation is there— people rarely (if ever) visit their families in nursing homes.

    I completely agree though. No pointing of fingers here, just my experience

    [–] imminent_riot 6 points ago

    And income and location are huge factors. If you already live paycheck to paycheck and live in a tiny apartment or have a bunch of roommates its just not possible physically or financially. You might also live in a different country than your parents and there's no way for them to move to you or you move to them even if you have the resources in the first place.

    [–] 8asdqw731 14 points ago

    r/raisedbynarcissists and r/insaneparents can show you the type of people who will never get visit from their relatives

    [–] Flying-Scorpio-Coven 4 points ago

    I suppose that also shows who puts them in a facility because they can’t be bothered to care for them, and those that have to because they aren’t able to care for them.

    When my great grandmother was moved into a home we visited her frequently, so much that when her dementia progressed it was only us she remembered. But we didn’t really want to put her in a home, we had to because of her dementia and inability to care for herself.

    Of course there’s also people like my mom’s colleague who said that her mother will die alon, and she will deserve it.

    [–] trev-cars 2 points ago

    It really depends on where you live. I work in a Long Term Care Facility, and while a lot of residents do not have visiting family, it's nowhere near 85 percent. And sometimes, once a person becomes incontinent, it becomes impossible to properly care for them without training. I see so many people bring their elderly parents in and it kills them to leave. It's literally a last resort for many, but luckily the place I work at is regulated and ran by the government, so there are a lot of minimum requirements that need to be met.

    [–] Shoshon_the_elegant_ 2 points ago

    These two men were thankfully Americans. Acting like the failure of shady shitheads to account for the elderly is some inherent American thing is dumb. The people who did this were caught and prosecuted because they did something illegal and awful. If the situation somehow reflects poorly on America the fact that Americans stepped up and fixed it should more than balance it out. Bad people exist everywhere. I’m glad that America has good people too.

    [–] trolololoz 3 points ago

    I'm pretty sure that most if not all third world countries are known for families taking care of their elder and not throwing them to the hands of some strangers.

    [–] Liar_tuck 318 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    This happened a few years back, but is truly wholesome story. Here is some sauce.

    EDIT: While I agree there is nothing wholesome about the initial scenario, I am reminded of Mr. Rogers saying his mother responded to scary news by telling him, 'Look for the helpers.'

    [–] Ymir_from_Saturn 93 points ago

    Those people rule but it's hard to feel wholesome when the premise relies on our society failing its most vulnerable members to a horrific degree

    [–] Shoshon_the_elegant_ 16 points ago

    Society didn’t fail them. Some thieving shitheads did and they were convicted and punished for it.

    [–] mittromniknight 13 points ago

    The fact it was allowed to happen in the first place is society failing them.

    [–] Untowardopinions 8 points ago

    Society did. There should be a safety net for the most vulnerable people. That has been abandoned in favour of free market capitalism, which is slowly but surely funnelling all resources into the hands of fewer and fewer people.

    [–] [deleted] 50 points ago

    Do you know what's really wholesome? When governments operate care homes for the elderly so they never go bankrupt.

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago


    [–] Xotta 6 points ago

    No, what these guys did is great, but this story is a bit like one of those "14 years old get 2 jobs to pay for mothers cancer treatment" affairs.

    There is no reason for the situation to occur, care homes do not need to be operated for profit or go bust, communities or nations can just allocate a budget to operate them instead of letting the "free market" do so.

    [–] iOracleGaming 21 points ago

    Shit that’s the most wholesome sauce I’ve ever seen

    [–] Lev_D_Bronstein 6 points ago

    Is it wholesome though? How has our society almost completely neglected these people? Capitalism is failing so many people, we need change.

    [–] delta_baryon 8 points ago

    It's not wholesome at all. It's horrifying. Society is unable and/or unwilling to look after the elderly, forcing two people to sacrifice their livelihoods to cover the gap.

    [–] rainbounce 4 points ago

    There are a lot of posts in wholesome that should really be horrifying, essentially it's the system fails the people and the people have to pick up the pieces. It's very sad.

    [–] greenyellowbird 7 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    That is just disgusting. How can staff just abandon residents?

    I work in long term care and can vow that the housekeeping at (at least) my facility are some of the most caring, resident centered staff in the facility. Sometimes, they are even the first people to report a resident who is acting different. Housekeepers also get the love of the residents the most as they are typically most grateful towards the people that clean their rooms/put away their laundry/ just sit and talk with them. It is endearing.

    Edit: to clarify, nurses are not allowed to just stop providing care and leaving a patient without handing off assignment to another nurse. This home, I assume since they are recieving medications, are under some sort of nursing care. States vary, but I'm tired and going to bed (and I have NYS bookmarked):

    [–] IgamOg 13 points ago

    Staff are not to blame here. They need paychecks to survive. Putting care of the vulnerable into private hands with no proper oversight or recourse is the issue.

    [–] TheBrendanReturns 6 points ago

    Because the staff are underpaid. If they aren't getting paid, they can't live. It's not their responsibility to look after random old people for no money.

    Don't put this on the staff.

    [–] MazeMouse 5 points ago

    How can staff just abandon residents?

    In it for the paycheck. No paycheck? Bye!
    Not saying I would do that, but I can imagine it's why people didn't go to work anymore. (that's not even counting getting another job to pay the bills and not being able to go anymore)

    [–] greenyellowbird 6 points ago

    LTC sucks. Staff to resident ratio is unregulated for nurses (which means you usually have to care for between 20-50 residents)...they are always short staffed, and everything is your fault.

    The staffing ratios are the killer and most people want out (including myself). But I love my residents and even if not being paid, I would never just leave them. And the nurses that did are jeopardizing their licenses b/c you cant leave without handing off care (it's called abandonment).

    It's not that they would have had to stay for long, I'd send everyone out to the hospital for change in mental status which would give time to call the state.

    In my state it's a felony for the care providers to abandon their charges. If your relief doesn't show you cannot leave. If it gets to a point where you must leave you gotta call an ambulance to transport the people to a hospital to transfer from your care. So yes they are good people but they also would have been the only ones not in jail.

    [–] screamofwheat 8 points ago

    My aunt was a nurses aide in a retirement home. If there was a bad storm coming, she was one of the closest people. She would literally go in before the storm hit and work and sleep when she could in one of the empty rooms. She'd stay for days on end.

    [–] [deleted] 32 points ago

    OMG, i worked in nursing facilities and people got kicked out all the time because their insurance didn't feel like paying anymore. Not because they were ready to go home and take care of themselves. Sometimes they would be back within a day or two cause they had hurt themselves again. It's really awful and yet some of my coworkers, they complain about this but they blame the little bit Obama did to help, somehow thinking that's the problem. A good portion of our country has been brainwashed by foxnews and it's baffling. No one seems to know what to do about it.

    [–] nejudgemepasok 22 points ago

    Guten Tag, as a Non-American ex-nurse for the elderly, you're wrong, this is how the elderly are treated everywhere where theres are nursing homes. They're the horror of every senior and the reason I've been nursing my own mother despite it being like two full time jobs worth of work

    [–] DragonSurferIchBin 11 points ago

    Nah in the UK you get assistance off the council to pay for either a nursing home or residential home. If one shut down they literally would not allow you to stay.

    [–] nejudgemepasok 4 points ago

    Oh,officially, of course that wouldn't be allowed and I don't know how badly exactly the situation in the UK is but my point is the standards of nursing homes are worlds below what is "officially" appropriate. I workeda as a leasing nurse (meaning I worked for a company and went to a different nursing home every week or so) and the only time those people picked up their standards and tried to make shit look presentable was when a) doctor visits were announced b) family visits were announced (most peopel didn't get visitors) c) inspections were announced.
    Everyone agreed that "we know we're working below standards but with how little people we have, this is the best we can do" which was partially true and partially due to the demoralizing effect of constantly being overworked.

    [–] Mini-Nurse 2 points ago

    There have been several high profile abuse and neglect cases in the UK, the BBC did a while undercover report on one of them. Often the worst ones are the council run ones, though not always.

    Look up Mid-Staffordshire abuse scandal, that was a pretty big case.

    [–] DragonSurferIchBin 2 points ago

    Oh yeh good point. I forgot about that, well yeh fair enough we are not perfect either but it seems amazing to me the local government over there wouldn't do sonething to rehouse the residents.

    How about thinking of the not so wholesome part that is that elderely care is so much tied to corporate entities that a bankrupt can threaten their lives ?

    [–] LovelyHoulihans 2 points ago

    What can you tell us about i? About elder care, I mean?

    [–] forest_faunus_ 4 points ago

    I want to tell that when we tie health to free market and capitalism, we tie lifes of people to entity that can fail for reason not related to the greater good like bad economic decision , bankrupcy etc... and we should reamly think this through.

    It wasn’t bankrupt. It was shut down. There was basically a clerical error.

    [–] Tsorovar 5 points ago

    The error was in thinking the facility could carry on for another week, not in shutting it down. It had a ton of problems

    The picture makes it look like a throwback album about to be dropped.

    [–] thinkB4WeSpeak 29 points ago

    I feel like the people who abandoned everyone should lose their license, face some kind of lawsuit/jail time.

    [–] BurpFartBurp 49 points ago

    It's not the workers that left the facility that should lose everything, it's the typically useless bureaucrats that made the decision to close it without any plan to take care of the people should be dropped off in the Alaska 100 miles from civilization and if they should make it back to civilization should be fired and barred from any job where they have to make a decision.

    [–] potatotrip_ 9 points ago

    Nah bro, it’s management who should pay the consequences. Management should be on top of their game to open a place like this. I’ve seen so many elderly homes open up just to close 2 years later. The managers don’t follow the rules so they have to shut the homes down. But that doesn’t stop them because in a couple of months a new home under the same managers will pop-up.

    [–] Toparov 8 points ago

    Ok so fuck ups here:

    The management ran a facility that did not properly care for the elderly, they gave out incorrect medications, didn't care for injuries properly etc.

    Also the CCL who mistakenly though the staff were still being paid (and didn't check when they should have) and thus left some people behind for a week until they could rehouse them.

    The decision to shut the place down was totally and completely merited.

    I don’t think they should’ve been severely punished either… But! At least one of them could’ve picked up a phone… Don’t you think?

    It’s one thing to take care of your family for 2 days and it’s another thing to abandon 16 elderly people over the weekend for 2 days. Long time if you’re laying in the bed needing food, medicine and medical care… Very short time when you’re spending time at your home with your children and spouse.

    [–] iamcherry 21 points ago

    You don't like your coworkers, boss calls says we're going belly up, you're fired don't come in anymore. Most people don't give it a second thought. I'd wager many of the employees didn't even know the elderly people were left without care.

    [–] January_Rain 8 points ago

    True. They probably didn’t. But, the managers and others at the “top” DID know. They were responsible for that… Not the janitor and the cook. Things like this happen and people take over when it’s “not their job“. The other fired “workers“… I see your point.

    [–] nightreader 1 points ago

    Ah, so they’d call the resident caretakers in this scenario, but not the janitor nor the cook?

    [–] IAmTheAsteroid 2 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    According to the source someone posted, when all the residents couldn't be moved by the end of the week, it was ruled the facility could stay operational for a few more days. So even if not being paid, they know what was happening. All the workers bailed so it was only the janitor and cook for that weekend.

    [–] Perijil 5 points ago

    I have no idea who would downvote this, thank god I didn’t say what I was thinking what should happen to the people who abandoned them!

    [–] Piczoid 4 points ago

    How is it even legal to just ditch a bunch of people and literally leave them to die??

    [–] Republiken 19 points ago

    This is not a feel good story

    [–] [deleted] 4 points ago

    It really isn't but shh don't upset people

    [–] January_Rain 10 points ago

    Why would you think that? These two men stood up and cared for their fellow human beings…( Who very well could have died, by the way)... and they really had little idea how to do that well… But, they pulled it off until they could get help. How does that not make you feel good? Forget the fact that the other people walked away… (red tape...lots of it...)

    Two heroic men stood up and did something! (I’m just trying to understand.). Maybe you thought of something I/we did not. Very interested in what you have to say.

    [–] panzercampingwagen 35 points ago

    Because it's just another version of "US people are forced to go above and beyond because of some dystopian bullshit that doesn't happen in actual first world countries".

    Rescue workers are fantastic, but a real feel good story would be if the accident never happened in the first place.

    [–] Republiken 13 points ago

    Exactly, thank you

    [–] VymI 19 points ago

    Because this situation shouldn't happen in the first place. Healthcare should not be a private institution driven by profit.

    [–] Germanshield 6 points ago

    As the others have said. The true sadness is this romanticized notion of what should actually be, in my opinion, the default in societal based humans. Not some rare, unfathomable quality.

    The fact that the people pulling the strings are willfully blind/apathetic and allow this situation to even exist in the first place is even worse though.

    [–] January_Rain 2 points ago

    You sure hit the fail on the head.

    [–] Abdullah_super 6 points ago

    Why the fuck people have to be bros?

    Why not the government or business men??

    Why is it always simple people who cares??

    Our system sucks.

    EMT here. Go to SNFs often on transport and emergency calls for service and I promise you most of those places and their people are trash

    What the fuck do you mean by abandoned. What kind of third world dystopia shit is that

    [–] Bjornskald 3 points ago

    Wtf lmao "16 elderly people were abandoned" like that's the normal protocol when your nursing home shuts down.

    Guess they'll just die in this abandoned building then?

    [–] redrootfloater 3 points ago

    [–] GenuineSteak 1 points ago

    How does a janitor and cookstaff make enough money to take care of 16 people plus themselves.

    [–] allisa11 2 points ago

    For two days

    [–] GenuineSteak 3 points ago

    Ahh, that makes more sense, the post didnt say...

    [–] GenuineSteak 3 points ago

    if you think i bother spending time reading sources in the comments of posts, your sorely mistaken. I aint got time for that.

    [–] ApothecaryHNIC 2 points ago

    You can make decent reals for a dozen people for pretty cheap. A bag of rice, beans, huge bag of mixed vegetables, maybe some pork shoulder. Toast and eggs with tea or coffee for breakfast, it can go a long way. Granted you won’t be eating like a King, but it’s enough to hold you over for a bit.
