Charges dismissed against schizophrenic Covid patient who beat up elderly vet in Michigan nursing home, father says officials who put his son there "will be held accountable"
· May 18, 2022 ·

A very big thanks to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, who decided to shuttle unhinged Covid patients into confined facilities filled to the brim with the most at-risk people!

"He shouldn't be in prison," Marty Hayden said about his son Jadon, now 22, who had been facing multiple charges including assault for the May 2020 beating of Norman Bledsoe inside a nursing home on Detroit's west side.

The charges against Jadon Hayden were dismissed after he was found incompetent. Hayden now resides in a psychiatric hospital in the Kalamazoo area where he cannot come and go.

Marty Hayden said if his son had been convicted and sent to prison, it would have only worsened his mental health issues.

Here's the video of the assault in May 2020 if you missed it:

Jadon's father Marty called 911 when his son started showing symptoms of Covid just a few weeks into the pandemic when Covid was still a big unknown. Jadon was taken to the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor, diagnosed, and then sent on someone's orders to the Westwood Nursing Center on the west side of Detroit.

This reportedly happened without the father's knowledge, and presumably without anyone screening Jadon for severe mental health issues.

Marty Hayden is hoping to find a lawyer to hold those responsible for placing his son in the nursing home, where he believes he was set up to fail and Bledsoe to become a victim.

"Why should you put him in a nursing home? All around elderly people," he said.

Why indeed!

Jadon Hayden was in a group home in Washtenaw County when he called his father to say he was hearing voices and thought people were out to kill him.

"He was in crisis mode," Marty Hayden said about his son who had a known history of assaultive behavior.

I wonder who was responsible for the commie-style order to use nursing homes as quarantine camps?

Even the media is willing to turn on the woman who was once considered a rising star and contender for VP:

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and state health officials have been criticized for allowing nursing homes to accept those recovering from COVID-19 for continued care. And nursing homes have been criticized as being motivated by money to participate in being a COVID-19 hub.

"They dropped the ball. Why would they put my my child in a nursing home," said Marty Hayden, adding that everyone involved in making the decision to send his son to the nursing home should have seen that he had assaultive behavior in his record as well as other issues stemming from his schizophrenia.

"They should have known," said Jadon Hayden's attorney Brian Berry. "I think the facility had an idea of who Jadon was and what type of treatment he needed. I think they knew, or had a history, that he was schizophrenic and it should have been handled differently."

The man who was assaulted was Norman Bledsoe, an Army vet who died two months after the attack. His death was not ruled a homicide.

Bledsoe's family has retained attorney Geoffrey Fieger and a lawsuit has been filed against the nursing home.

Marty Hayden said he extends his condolences to Bledsoe's family. He said he also hopes those involved in placing his son in the nursing home will be held accountable.
