Hospital: Mom booted from ER who died in jail was treated appropriately
RICHMOND HEIGHTS, Mo. – Officials at a St. Louis hospital on Thursday defended their actions in the case of a homeless woman who sought treatment for a sprained ankle and died in police custody after being arrested for refusing to leave the emergency room.

Brown's family says authorities treated the 29-year-old mother of two unfairly and have hired a St. Louis-based lawyer, Keith Link. Link did not respond to telephone messages from on Thursday.

America where are you now?
Don't you care about your sons and daughters?
And though the past has it's share of injustice.
Kind was the spirit in many a way.
But it's protectors and friends have been sleeping.
Now it's a monster and will not obey.
The spirit was freedom and justice.
And it's keepers seem generous and kind.
It's leaders were supposed to serve the country.
But now they won't pay it no mind.
'Cause the people grew fat and got lazy.
And now their vote, is a meaningless joke.
They babble about law and order.
But it's all just an echo of what they've been told.
