  • And even after being informed that we had a patient, there was total disregard. So he started in a state of rage and simply escalated from that point.
  • Maurice White Jr. • A paramedic involved in a YouTube-captured altercation with an Oklahoma state trooper. The trooper, Daniel Martin, believed that one of the EMTs in the ambulance flipped off the officer and flipped out on White, who noted immediately that there was a patient in the vehicle. White wants to see the trooper fired for his conduct. • source

U.S.: Forget pirates vs. ninjas. Try police vs. ambulances.

  • Oklahoma state troopers pulled over an ambulance transporting a patient over a massive dramabomb of misunderstanding. The troopers attempted to arrest the EMT for obstructing an officer.
