Utah Nurse Arrested Over Blood Draw: This Shouldn’t Happen Again

Well, there you go...

We will wait for the "investigation"... of the police investigating... .

... themselves!

The officers weren't even put on (paid) leave until the video went public. Going to be trouble burying this one.

Utah hospital tell police to stay away from nurses after arrest of Alex Wubbles

I can't cut and paste from that article, but two interesting points:

1. Police have been banned from patient areas, and direct interaction with nurses, and

2. Wubbles holds the university police and hospital security at fault for not intervening.

I don't necessarily agree with those things, but they are an interesting development.

UPDATE:

Chief: Officers should have protected nurse at U of U

It's virtue signaling when done in hindsight, but this policy could lead to interesting confrontations.

For that reason, I think it's just puffing.

It didn't look to me as if

It didn't look to me as if the hospital guards were armed. For that reason I can understand, at least in part, why they hesitated to confront the uniformed assailant wearing a police uniform and a loaded sidearm. Yes, they were deficient in not defending the nurse.

Second point against the officer. He stated that he would be bringing the hospital all the homeless victims and take all the "good patients" ( those with insurance) to other hospitals. The officer was employed by a contract ambulance service. That statement got him promptly FIRED from the ambulance service. Something the police department should have already done for his"services" with them.

Ohio news photographer

Ohio news photographer reportedly shot by deputy while setting up to take pictures of traffic stop

“He said there was no warning, no ‘show me hands’ or ‘drop what you have,'” the paper owner said, while changing Tuesday’s front page to reflect his son’s shooting around 3 a.m.

From the hospital, Grimm retraced his steps leading up to the shooting, wondering what caused the deputy to reach for his gun.

“Until I hear his side, I guess I won’t know what I did wrong,” Grimm said.

Shoot first, and sort them out later!

Saylor, a 26-year-old with Down syndrome, was at a movie theater with a health care aide watching “Zero Dark Thirty” in January 2013. The movie had finished, but Saylor didn’t want to leave the theater after the film ended, hoping to watch it again.

Officers responded to a call

Officers responded to a call from Faulkenberry’s son, who said his dad was drunk and waving a gun around. Surveillance video used to clear his name shows a different picture: Faulkenberry was standing still with his arms raised when deputies approached him with their guns drawn and forced him to the ground.The video shows another version of events, and deputies never recovered a handgun at the scene. In March 2016 Faulkenberry never even owned a gun.

It's all fun and games until the video comes out.

An Oklahoma City man was


An Oklahoma City man was fatally shot by police as neighbors shouted that the man was deaf and could not hear officers' commands to drop a metal pipe he was holding, police said.

Sanchez’s neighbor, Julio Rayos, 37, told ABC News that Sanchez would "always" carry the pipe with him, mainly to shoo away the stray dogs that would roam the Shields-Davis neighborhood, south of downtown Oklahoma City.

Police shoot and kill Oklahoma City man as neighbors shout that he is deaf

This guy lives in the neighborhood, and is well-known, and his neighbors have no fear of him.

The cops wander into the neighborhood on an unrelated matter, and the citizen get up from sitting on his porch, to see what is going on. The cops start screaming at him to drop the item in his hand. He (1) can't hear them and (2) the thing is taped to his wrist.

However, because he did not "obey police instructions," they ruthlessly blow the guy away in his front yard.

... At least the cops got to go home safe that day!

The protest of the national

The protest of the national anthem by NFL players took on added intensity last month when Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett was briefly detained outside a Las Vegas casino.

The player was high critical of how he was treated, blasting across social media that he was targeted “simply being a black man” and the officers used excessive force that was “unbearable.”

…this coming from a 6′ 4″ 274 lb. professional football player.

Bennett’s inflammatory words included the claim that an officer threatened to “blow my f**king head off.”

But, as is often the case of late when it comes to volatile incidents involving claims of racism, video of the incident, to include body cameras worn by officers, paint a whole other story.

Cops demand apology! Footage proves NFL Seahawks player lied about racial profiling, excessive force

It's all fun and games until the video comes out!

This time the cops were protected by the video.

Charlotte police video shows

Charlotte police video shows man with hands up before fatal shooting

Guy calls police to turn in a gun. The police show up and see that he has... a gun! They then scream at him intelligibly, he raises his hands, and they shoot him.

Brilliant police work.

Just a reminder, these are the people we pay to protect us.
