Look at the video if you havn't seen it and I like to hear what everyone thinks.

Should this trooper go unpunished? unsure.gif I say he should be fired! I'm posting this in as many places as I can so I can make as many aware as possible.


Here's the link.

Perhaps we are being groomed for Obama's Civilian National Security Force. Or maybe it is the cops who are being groomed. Hmmmmmm.

The guy should be the poster CHILD for all that is wrong with law enforcement today. A large tender ego driven by a small slow mind. The medical unit had a destination and a sensible person would have followed it to it's destination to finish the discussion. Also, The trooper appeared to be caucasian. Did racism raise it's ugly head? That is a definite possibility in oklahoma! (amongst other states)

From the media reports, another trooper arrived and sent the medical unit and it's occupants on it's way.

I suspect these are just a harbinger of things to come.

With the dash cam providing one side and the cell phone video providing another it appears that the trooper had an axe to grind. Not only did Martin pass the ambulance after a short delay of about 15 seconds, he had the presence of mind to make a comment about checking rear view mirrors, arrive at his destination, and then turn around to go after the ambulance.

White is not necessarily in the clear either. He would have helped he cause a little more by not interfering with a police investigation by jumping out the assert his authority over his driver and the rig. This stepped up the pissing match.

Overall, Martin should be fired and White needs a reprimand.

Not impressed at all!!!! dry.gif These types of occurences & others that I've witnessed, makes me wonder if there are any decent Law Enforcement Members left in this society. I am not labelling all Law Enforcement, but I only know one decent Officer & he was my Hubby's Uncle at Large when he was a young lad; other than that, I have come across far and few between.

What about the poor patient in the back of the rig? I am certain that all the kerfuffle made her condition worse!!!!!!!!

I think the patient and his/her family should sue the officer state of Oklahoma. My state has been sued successfully for lesser occurances, and I really do not believe in civil suits in most situations. That is one of the few ways to get governments atrtention. Oklahoma is a "good old boy" state and that may have been the "axe", so to speak. I saw that you-tube had about 1.5M hits and there were other video's re: the incident (60). Watching those provided additional information.

I don`t know about that. I think there are a lot of good law enforcement officers out there. I personally know quite a few but then I think it depends on where you live and how large the city or town is you live in. There are bad apples in every barrel and I a firm believer in firm profiling of all law enforcement because I have known a few who were "loose cannons" and let their authority run wild.

In most professions the "loose cannons" are weeded out for the good of the profession. In law enforcement they protect them. In 40 years of working with law enforcement I have watched their attitudes change and not for the better! You are right in observing that there are some good ones but the bad exceeds the good many times over today. Even those retired from the profession share my opinion.

I know that there is a shortage of Law Enforcement Officers here, which adds to the stresses of the job at hand. I constantly view articles in the Newspapers and even on our local T.V. Stations for Officer recruitment. I would like to believe that the active force that is working truly want to make a difference in our City, but statistically we have less Police Officers than criminals.

Yes, they have Anger Mangement Programs etc., but the question is, when do they have the time to attend these sessions when they have to pull "double-duty" due to shortage of workers?

I hear the old story that they constantly put their lives in danger. It is not true. VERY few police die in the line of duty by firearms. The greatest cause of death for police officers is in vehicle accidents and most are not, as one would believe, while chasing criminals. They are as it appears the Oklahoma officer was doing initially, "recreational use of lights and sirens."

MANY more people are killed by police in questionable circumstances and the departments white wash the incidents.

You may be fortunate in Canada that it does not happen so often.

This is exactly how I feel and what I've been saying. thumbs_up.gif
