One of the notable things is that only two of these patients got these drugs as part of a clinical trial. The rest of them were given the drugs off label -- since these drugs are generally available that's at the discretion of the treating provider, but it's still notable, patients with all levels of severity of Covid-19 received these drugs, although certainly the patients that were hospitalized were more likely to receive these drugs.
The lack of cadet classes at APD over the last couple of years has contributed to an officer staffing shortage, in order to prioritize the Department’s ability to respond to 911 phone calls and keep the community safe, APD has had to reallocate some personnel from our support units back to patrol. The Sex Offender Apprehension and Registration Unit (SOAR) is one of the units affected by these staffing challenges and lost 3 officers who were re-assigned to patrol in the process. These officers’ duties and tasks while assigned to SOAR were to perform sex offender compliance checks, and to track down and arrest those with outstanding warrants. With the absence of these officers in the SOAR unit to assist with these tasks, the unit has limited capacity to perform these functions. There are currently 1 sergeant, 3 detectives, 1 full time civilian, and 2 part time civilians who now work in this unit.

And it was almost like this architectural seance, where these citizens that were forcibly forgotten, were able to come back in.
[The accusations are] that we are waiting too long to send in these rescue missions, and that for whatever reason this is getting bottle-necked up in the White House, [which is] having a hard time making any decision, i think time is of the essence in these situations to save these hostages, and it's very, very unfortunate what happened to [ISIS hostage Kayla Mueller]. I'm concerned they're not doing enough not only to save these hostages but to win this war.
If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.
