Completely false statement. Since I am ex-EMS, grew up with a Nurse for a mom, and have known many doctors and nurses I don't agree with you at all. I personally never got use to it, and cried my eyes out every time a kid died. The best nurses in the world are the ones who never become detached from it. Does it mean that it doesn't happen? In more cases then not, yes it does. I have especially seen it in police officers over the course of a career. We are talking about a dog here, but I have seen much worse videos coming out of there and how "detached" they are. I understand what you are saying, but the end doesn't justify the means.
A lot of these kids think they are sitting behind a joystick and playing a video game. I don't want to derail the thread with other videos, but there is plenty of supporting evidence to show just a thing.
Maybe if we didn't go in there and wipe out 66,000 civilians (which is more than the soldiers we killed) the dogs would have owners so disease wasn't so rampant to have the dogs turn on the children from the claims here in the thread. Step away from the canvas and look at the complete picture not just the pixel you are staring at because you are too close to the painting. The dog is irrelevant at the moment.
We keep talking about temporary problems and solutions, not talking about how to fix the MAIN problems at all.
NOT a completely false statement. This may be true for you, but I know several nurses and EMTs who express the opposite mentality as essential to keep doing their job well and without burnout.
