How is believing that public safety is ensured through proper training and execution of proper action a biased viewpoint against police? I think it is your viewpoint that is biased. It seems as if a person who becomes aggravated and lashes out against another person, it is an assault. Unless of course it's a police officer, then it's merely the other person's fault for resisting. But whether you're a law enforcement officer, or buff… it doesn't matter no one can argue that the police have any right at all to violate the law, break the chain of command or endanger any citizen.
Perhaps the way I present my view is not particularly in favor of the actions of the trooper, but I very clearly stated, this was my opinion based only on what facts and information was available by news media.
My viewpoint on police and all levels of the criminal justice and overall justice system, is one of concern. But he did not feel that this incident would be something that should be addressed to the whole criminal justice system. More appropriately the whole criminal justice system should learn from this. What I would like to get across is that the trooper should probably learn to manage emotional responses to incidence. This is probably true for the paramedic as well.
What struck me as clearly evident was the fact that the trooper had enough time to clear the call he was on and find the same ambulance still en route to the hospital. What could have been so important that the trooper was that worked up about? I don't know the answer to that question, all I know is that the ambulance was still carrying a patient.
Making a public spectacle of interagency difficulty, is absolutely unacceptable, again for both sides. I grant you (again) that my viewpoints are only speculation and only to be observable facts, and stories reported.
No matter what, it is essential that public safety personnel, regardless of their type of agency, understand we are meant to serve the greater good of our community. It is a difficult enough task for all public safety & emergency responders to do their jobs, without infighting or interagency “scuffles”.
