Son Awakens from ‘Brain-Dead’ State after his Father Engages Cops in a 3 hour Armed Standoff to block Doctors from Pulling the Plug on his Life-Support Meet 59 year old George Pickering II, of Texas.  That’s… Scroll down to read more!

Meet 59 year old George Pickering II, of Texas.  That’s his mug shot below…

George was arrested after engaging in a three (3) armed hour stand-off with cops at the Tomball Regional Medical Center in Houston, Texas.

The stand-off occurred after George appeared at the facility determined NOT to permit doctors to take his 27 year old son, George Pickering, III, who had been pronounced brain dead after suffering a massive stroke in January, 2015, off of life support.  

After doctors had declared there was no more hope for George the 3rd they ordered a “terminal wean”, whereby life support would slowly be withdrawn so as to “humanely” end his life.  George the 2nd’s ex-wife and other son had already agreed with the doctors, and George the 3rd had even already been placed on an organ donation register, but George the 2nd (obviously) didn’t agree.   Per George the 2nd: “They were moving too fast. The hospital, the nurses, the doctors. I knew if I had three or four hours that night that I would know whether George was brain-dead.” And so he took a gun into hospital to stop doctors taking his son off life support and, during the three (3) hour stand-off George the 3rd actually squeezed his father’s hand, demonstrating that he wasn’t brain dead.

During the standoff George the 2nd’s faith that his son had been misdiagnosed never wavered and after he finally got the response that he wanted from his boy (the hand squeeze), he gave the gun to his other son and surrendered peacefully to authorities. Still, after his three (3) hour stand-off George the 2nd was arrested for two (2) counts of aggravated assault with a firearm.

Per hospital staff….

Per George the 2nd (who admitted to being drunk and aggressive but said that this was only because he knew that his son wasn’t ready to die):  “During that three hours, George squeezed my hand three or four times on command.”   George the 3rd came out of his coma and is now fully recovered, and the charges against George the 2nd were eventually reduced and he was released.  Per George the 3rd:  “There was a law broken, but it was broken for all the right reasons.  I’m here now because of it.  It was love, it was love.”
