Quick summary, guy wrecks and is allegedly intoxicated. Medic is seen hitting him a couple times while in the vehicle and then after they jump to where he is on the cot on a back board, the officers taze him while he is restrained.
I am not commenting on what the officers did because I am wondering what your agencies would say about this. I will comment on the EMT hitting him while the Paramedic stands back and watches. They guy is combative and spitting, so what. We have a job to do and physically assaulting a patient is not one of them. There could be a bad head injury being masked by the alcohol. Put an O2 mask on and let him spit till his heart is content. Sedate him, if there is a spinal injury he is a harm to himself when he fights. I am horrified by the actions of the crew and it pisses me off. Our job is to treat them medically not assault them and I hope they burn for it.
What are the LEO thoughts on the restrained person being tazed. What are your thoughts on the "get back or your next comment"? To me that sounds like an officer wanting another fight on scene.
Please no derogatory posts on officers if your not LE. I am not posting this for people to start bashing officers about abuse of power I am looking for legit LEO opinions and reactions not bashing...
