    I don't know why, but that link doesn't bring up the eleven minute interview with the paramedic. It is lower down on the same page titled "full interview with paramedic" among other video about the incident.

    George the OHP have some serious issues here, and millions around the world (like me) are following it with interest and not liking much of what we see.
    Millions????

    You really aren't very smart are you? There are 3,642,361 people in Oklahoma alone. Now add the national attention this has gotten and you are easily in the millions.

    You questioning someone's intelligence? That's precious.

    Millions is a gross exaggeration. Aside from about 12 people on here, there is likely a dwindling number of people who even remember the incident. By the end of next week, it won't even be worthy of posts here.

    I don't understand your demeanor. Why are you so eager to be unpleasant?

    I probably misunderstood something, but... In this video, at 1:47 when the officer is saying "You are under arrest," you can hear the paramedic saying "I would like to press charges on this officer." This was prior to the paramedic assaulting the officer and being choked. What would the paramedic press charges on the officer for at this point?

    I have a rule. I am generally ALWAYS unpleasant to idiots.

    Now for your question. I have no idea. You have to remember that NO ONE in this incident was 100% in the right. I guess the only answer that would be reasonable is that something may have happened in one of two places; outside the ambulance during the time period prior to the video, or someplace in the deepest darkest recesses of the medics' head.

    The man is a delusional twit. He doesn't have the brain of half a chicken. So inferior is he that it isn't worth the time of day to debate him. Sort of like catching fish in a barrel. He thinks he is gods gift to firefighting, problem is the fire is smarter than he is.

    BTW Ryan, that is the TOTAL count, not the number of individuals who have viewed it. The number is likely quite skewed.

    But I was never completely irresponsible with my personal credit and had to declare bankruptcy. I'll take the trade off.

    About time you finally admitted it!

    Honestly, I don't know how you said that about George with a straight face.

    No, it's the number of unique IP addresses requesting the page. Basically, its 1,201,192 individual computers viewing the video. I'm Cisco trained.

    I'm just trying to point out that this actually is pretty present in the media, a lot more than I expected. Youtube seems to have it covered, along with a little Twitter here and there, a few news stations reported on it again this morning -- it's not stale news yet.

    It did make the National news here although I think only 1 time.

    Then you should very well know that number is meaningless.

    And if you don't...don't let Cisco know you are boasting about being Cisco trained.

    I'm sure it is. The number of actual people is more than likely much higher. For instance, the person in the firehouse says "hey guys look at this." It counts as one but 10 saw it.

    Yes, CNN had a 15 minute segment on it that aired on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 18:15 EST. Easily several millions have seen it.

    The truly sad part is the majority of Troopers, Sheriffs and other LEOS are decent people, I know many. It only takes a couple of jack-***' with chips on their shoulders to give the entire force a bad name.

    Simple, read his adolescent, condescending, arrogant post. I have this image of a crotchety old man with a cane yelling at the kids as the pass in front of his house. Then he wonders why he gets egged every Halloween.
