Ok so here i am surfing through youtube and i come across this video, after watching police brutality videos for an hour this one takes the cake! This officer was apparently upset that the ambulance did not yield for him.


However, it is evident that the ambulance had a real emergency on its hands, unlike the cop, who had been speeding towards some incident he was able to resolve in minutes, enabling him to refocus his attention on the ambulance.

The incident marks the second time this year that a police officer pulled a vehicle over as it was clearly on its way to a hospital for an emergency.

Paramedics say they were rushing a woman to the hospital who had suffered heat exhaustion when they noticed the trooper traveling at a high rate of speed behind them. They say the trooper had its emergency lights on but had its sirens off.

The driver of the ambulance did not notice the trooper until it got right behind him. He pulled over allowing it to pass.

Through his microphone, the officer allegedly said, “You should consider checking your rearview mirrors.”

The driver of the ambulance said he responded by lifting his hands in bewilderment.

Three blocks later, the trooper was seen pulling out of a side street – apparently having addressed his emergency or having picked up a female passenger – and pulled the ambulance over.

At first, paramedics thought the woman in the passenger side was having an emergency.

According to the paramedic’s transport incident report:

The officer got out of his vehicle in a state of rage. He approached my partner and yelled, “Get your ass back here. I am giving you a ticket for failure to yield.”

He also added, “What do you mean flipping me off?”

The trooper wanted to cite the driver of the ambulance but the other paramedic insisted on driving the patient to the hospital first, then allowing the driver to be cited.

The trooper then told the second paramedic that he was under arrest for obstruction and attempted to grab the paramedic’s arm.

But the paramedic reminded him that it was a felony to assault a paramedic in the line of duty, especially when he needs to transport a patient to the hospital.

They struggled briefly before the paramedic was able to hop in the back of the ambulance to tend to the patient.

By that time, another trooper had pulled up and started banging on the side of the ambulance, telling the paramedic that he was under arrest for assault.

The paramedic stepped out of the vehicle and another struggle ensued – this one caught on tape – which resulted in a cop grabbing the paramedic in a vise-like-grip around his neck.

The officers finally allowed the paramedics to transport the patient to the hospital where they planned to arrest the paramedic.

But then they finally got smart and contacted the district attorney, who insisted on reviewing the evidence before filing charges.

Police say they have their own version of the truth that was recorded by their dashboard cam. Of course they are refusing to release it.

At one point in the hospital, the trooper told the paramedic that he was so enraged about the perceived “flipping off” gesture that he considered pulling his gun out and using deadly force, according to the paramedic’s transport report.

This youtube channel has some really good police brutality videos!

This is at least a year old.

I'm sure it was thoroughly discussed at that time.

Old news or not...

Perhaps reading #10 might be beneficial.

Absolutely ridiculous.

Trying to keep ATS fresh, has nothing to do with disinformation.

This is why ambulance drivers need to pack heat.

If things were bad enough and it came down to it, the paramedic could then shoot the attacker and save their patient.

No point in letting the attacker kill your patient when it's your job to save them. Also, this officer would not have raged so hard if he saw a .45 on that paramedics waist. - he'd probably be more polite.

No it isn't.

When you carry a gun, you will be perceived as a threat by many people, gangs, police, gun owners, store owners, etc. There will be accidental discharges, overzealous paramedics going crazy and threatening people with guns, etc. A paramedic, like a doctor, needs to be seen as a neutral outsider in order to do his job.

If the paramedic sported a .45 on his hip, he would likely be dead. A really angry police officer with a gun would likely shoot first and ask questions later. After all the 'perp' was carrying a gun.

This whole macho 'escalate everything into a gunfight' is getting tiresome. It showcases the average persons inability to resolve conflicts. A gunfight can get you killed, so why would you want to escalate a worded or even physical exchange into one.

I've worked with EMT's, medics, cops and fire personell and there's this undercurrent of passive aggressive tension among them regarding each other.

They pretend to play well together and will march nice in pointless parades and whatnot but they are fighting each other constantly. EMT's and medics resent fire for usurping their role in many municipalities, the same medics mock the fire depts because their approach is often half assed (I got to watch an entire cities dept be scolded and ordered back to school for their botching a vehicle extrication and boarding) and everyone hates the cops and the cops hate everyone for their constant interference and posturing.

I've worked this role in no less than three major cities, two towns and now one rural backwater. Its been the same in each place.

The three "special people" groups hate each other with a passion. The o ly thing they dealt share is a general contempt for anyone who isn't in one of their "special groups."

I've worked with then all, have family, friends and co-workers spread throughout them all and I will say with absolute confidence that this is 100% true.
