    Bad Cop

    I've already written my complaint about this coward to the governor. Here's the links in case anyone else wants to. This guy is a menace to society. I'll NEVER go through that state.

    He'll certainly miss my money, along with that of tens of thousands of others who would normally travel there just as much. I can just as easily go hunting in Texas and leave my cash there.

    in my nearly 18 years working on an ambulance i have never been pulled over and harrassed by any law enforcement. Nor have i ever heard of any ambulance being pulled over while transporting a patient. By doing so these officers are delaying the treatment and transport of this patient to a medical facilty and are opening themselves up to some serious liability issues. I would certainly like to know the whole story for which they decided they needed to attempt to arrest the driver of the ambulance. If for some reason they had a warrant for his arrest they know exactly where he is headed just apprehend him there after the transport is completed! Here in VA there are laws that prohibit impeding EMS personel in the performance of their duties im pretty sure Oklahoma has something simular on their books as well. I also wonder what they were planning on doing to get that ambulance to the hospital after they arrested him, let it sit on the side of the road until someone from the rescue squad could respond out to drive it the rest of the way. or was one of them gonna drive it. POOR JuDGEMENT on the officers part if you ask me.
    We would be better off with BORAT as PRESIDENT!!!!

    Unhappy Link is broken, StumpJumper.

    From what I could tell from the conversation, the OHP officer is pissed because the ambulance was driving too fast without lights or siren (his mention of "running hot" seemed to imply that the EMT was not). However, the instant that he discovered there was a patient en route to the hospital, he should have backed off and provided an escort.

    EM personnel are given fairly wide latitude concerning sirens, depending on the state. If you are running a patient who is becoming distressed at the sound, it may be turned off, with a corresponding reduction of speed. However, that reduction still puts them over the legal speed limit for non-emergency driving.

    All in all, this was a terrible judgment call on the trooper's part, and really makes me question his fitness for duty.

    Just saw it on the Today Show and they said the Trooper has been put on administrative leave pending investigation, go figure.

    Several years ago, there was a Hotzola (sp?) ambulance that would travel down the New York State Thruway with lights and sirens on at the same time every morning. Finally a NY State Trooper pulled them over and did an investigation. There was no patient in the back. There were 5 Hasidics in the back who worked in the diamond district and they were going to work like that to beat the traffic!

    It's hard to know the real story when we only get to see 2-3 minutes of video!
