If you're not already.
This is just unbelievable.
Paramedics, Troopers Defend Themselves After Fight
What is so strange about this story is not that a policeman would choke someone who didn't deserve it. That kind of behavior seems to be getting pretty commonplace.
What is odd about this is that there is a symbiotic relationship between Law Enforcement, EMS and ER personnel. It's an understanding that we will take care of each other because we may NEED to take care of each other someday.
We all interact so closely and each of us understands that the other faces the same types of dangers.
It's just an unspoken agreement.
Hopefully you clicked through and watched the video. If you didn't, do it now.
Read the statement of the Paramedic Here.
I understand that what I've seen does not constitute all of the facts, but Dayem!! It sure looks wrong.
Hopefully, the State of Oklahoma will do the right thing when all is said and done.
I can guarantee that that Trooper better hope he never ends up in the back of that guys ambulance if he's got a gunshot wound or something serious wrong with him.
What you should be thinking is "If they will choke that guy, someone who they should be depending on, what will they do to me?"
Gratuitous Picture for a Thursday Night-
Look at the size of that bastard. One of the kids I work with got him a few years ago. Little Shit.
