We had set up a triage area in case of any injuries. We had eye wash, sutures, EMTs, doctors, EMS workers. They came in in full riot gear, hit us with shields, threw several people to the ground. We were grabbed, thrown, shouted at, screamed at, treated as criminals. https://t.co/25c7WkU2hL
Part of standing up for Black lives means those White allies (especially the rich and famous Hollywood type ones) who voted for @MayorOfLA could start asking the @MayorOfLA why this money can't just go to EMTs and social workers? https://t.co/WFGRtD80w1
Why? “Asheville Police surround a medic station created by protesters as they stab water bottles with knives and tip over tables of medical supplies and food June 2, 2020. The medic team, made of EMTs and doctors, said the medical station was approved by the city” https://t.co/bdynwlncNm
@auroramarie_ @naomim_01 i noticed that they hadn’t put a neck brace and simply just “manually stabilized” his head but even with that, it was so careless. it just never crossed my mind that they weren’t emts
@FlankerNips @veggirl1107 @FoXxy_EyeZ @IAF__FAI Yeah? It shows a complete lack of situational awareness, threat assessment and proper restraint/engagement techniques lol that his WHOLE JOB AND HE SUCKS AT IT EMTs have to learn how to engage and restrain without weapons without hurting people so why cant this cop?
Ministry of Health with support from Korea Foundation for International Healthcare conducted a training on 27th and 28th May to strengthen capacity of frontline health workers (EMTs and Drivers) in Emergency Care, Infection Prevention and Control and Decontamination. #KeepSafeUG https://t.co/st53Nvbp9X
@MiniZenLife @pentimentos @Molly_PC @NYGovCuomo @MayorByronBrown @BPDAlerts @markpoloncarz @RachelsChalleng Furthermore you don't necessary want to lift up a person at that state due to risk of spinal injury and concussion, you might just cause him to fall again and get more injuries. Waiting for the EMTs was the right choice. Now to deal with the consequences :(
@createcraig Firefighters and EMTs are real hero’s! The police have stolen their glory for far too long! The violence is sickening!
@JoshMayhugh1 @NBCNews Doctors, Nurses, Firefighters, EMTs, Paramedics, grocery workers, essential workers all on overtime and yet I don’t see any of them assaulting elderly and not rendering aid afterward. “Serve & Protect” remember.
@PamKeithFL @Phil_Lewis_ @cathys808 they did call EMTs if you listened to the audio it's still messed up
@MishyFishyWhoo And for the record regardless of skin color this is disheartening to see no officers, that was taken an oath to serve and protect, stop to tend to him until EMTs arrive. There were plenty of them available.
By law, EMTs are not required to wear bulletproof vests to 911 calls, even in situations where there is a known active shooter; long story short, those aren’t EMTs, from the way they arrived on scene, to the handling of an injured civilian. They’re hellish disgraces. https://t.co/V4sVDQjLoB
@Howardkyramed @Tom_Winter Cops never arrive in time for real crimes. Hell they don’t even turn in all the Rape kits! The firefighters and EMTs are the real hero. They enter danger without guys.
@Joshuab77691824 @xoitschels @JeffreeStar It doesn't matter if they are trained for head trauma, they are train to keep moving forward and let the EMTs help the people left behind them
@cadeckardadolp1 @JohnRey18079722 @JohnFKennedy_Jr @Tracy61287610 They also said it was a counterfeit 20$ bill?? Sheriffs officers who come out of an ambulance and not EMTS and no one administers anything OR administered CPR or oxygen as protocol - the whole thing is fishy.
@caseeeykins i’m not defending them by any means bc it was totally wrong.. but i’m almost positive they’re trained to keep moving forward when the line is moving.. EMTs clean up the mess.. cops aren’t trained nd can be sued like in healthcare if someone does something out of their practice
@fullmetaling @RichardElsa7 @WGRZ If the cops are not First responders or EMTs they can help. The cop that shoved was gonna kneel down and help but his captain or superior pushed him to keep going
This is difficult to watch. They didn't need to shove him. Then they left him. Then they rush to get others out of the way. Then casually say "We have EMTs on site" as if that's okay. Abuse of power. They shove someone away like because they think they have the power to do so. https://t.co/jG62XCnHdk
@fashionNovuh @Slasher @markpoloncarz @NYGovCuomo I never said that that is what you said. I asked you a question. Does having EMTs on site justify them using this force on a crowd that is being peaceful and made no real attempt to threaten them?
@fashionNovuh @Slasher @markpoloncarz @NYGovCuomo Because they had EMTs on site it was completely fine for them to use force?? Here's a suggestion, not have a guy in riot gear trying to diffuse a situation if his first impulse is to use brute force. Train police more thoroughly on how to diffuse a situation.
@FoxxFiles @iamdennyblanco They move to municipality next door, often in same county. Small towns share mutual aid & resources-they all know each other Happens regularly in Athens- Clark County, GA. So much $$ there bc of UGA, but so many dirty, racist cops In Philly, they just make them firemen or EMTs
regardless of if they were EMTs or not, they should have treated them as though he had a neck injury, not yanked him into a stretcher. There was no neck brace, no care and generally no emergency medical care given?? https://t.co/GYTZobq3df
Trigger Warning BUT OMG THERE WERE NO EMTS PRESENT https://t.co/6bJBbOsPvm
My last interaction with cops was when I had swallowed a whole bunch of my pills in a suicide attempt & my ex called them. I spent more time talking to them, who had SHIT training to deal with that situation, than I did the EMTs, Y’know the actual docs who could help. Fuck cops.
@nostradummarse A lot of EMTs have similar uniforms to cops, including bullet proof vests (for bad neighborhoods). I wish there was more to this story to make sense of it. The only other strange thing is that the cop worked with George Floyd. I’ve looked into other odd bits, but found nothing. https://t.co/LVWtwjvBl2
@macboarder12 IMO the US needs to treat jobs like policemen, teachers, EMTs etc with higher prestige and make them much higher earning jobs...and in return make the schooling process more competitive producing better candidates for the job.
@adriannaegillis I talked to my brother and he said that he believes all cops should be licensed EMTs. They often are first responders to calls that could require medicinal practices. Also, the rides that EMTs do as part of their training are a great way to tell character and capability
@DollarVigilante Check this out Jeff > > > > https://t.co/tNZJ7JpCw6 Its interesting and adds to what you were saying about the fake EMTs
@KensBarbie4 @JohnRey18079722 @JohnFKennedy_Jr @Tracy61287610 My ?s where was firetruck/1st responders, ambulance equipment, EMTs; why would sign up to die or kill friend, keep moving so could be recorded, put perp in truck drive to other side of street; US, Paris, Madrid all same happened, call ambulance for counterfeit check for starters
@UREssien @poojac99 @atheendar @uche_blackstock @EdwinLindo @DrAlethaMaybank @rmitch_jr @DrRupaMarya @AmerMedicalAssn @DrLeanaWen @Avik @PresFawnSharp Oh & here’s your RACIST cop narrative! Don’t like cops don’t call them EVER~robbery, assault or EMTs or fire. Suffer call your fellow SJW US haters! https://t.co/31Mkh5cGJ4
@kellie64920345 The media is biased when they're not the ones getting slammed by #Cops... oh & don't forget these #Piggy bastards are ALSO attacking EMTs & underaged girls! #PoliceBrutalityEpidemic #BunkerBoy is a FAILER of a #President
@TheWayThingsAr1 @carrythebern @ProudSocialist Well, people calling for defunding and/or abolishing the police arent calling for no replacement. Abolish our current system, legalize Mj & other drugs, treat them as a health issue - instant drop in crime numbers. Train EMTs, mental health officials to be first responders...
Yes lets politicize these survival phrases so the police and EMTs wont be able to tell genuine distress from posturing.
and it turns into a situation of "we'll let you get robbed if you don't give us what we want". Theoretically you could try this with EMTs and FIRE but it's only in policing where you can pretty much create the problem that you then extort the city money to "clean up"...
throughout of region. We have a vested interest in keeping both ourselves and our passengers safe. EMTs have a vested interest in keeping everyone safe and their job is to save lives. Fire has the same responsibility with the added task of reducing fire risk and putting out fires
@EimonEnterprise @EmilyMaherTV @kcranews So the clergy, emts, PRESS, international press, old people, medics, congressman, congresswoman were unruly? #weveseenenough
@Paul_VanDerMeer @DonaldJTrumpJr Read a Trumper’s thread about how this is all fake. That man’s head is not touching ground (could be ridged due to head injury!), that he used fake blood, 2 emts states that he used fake blood, that blood would not be coming out of his ear so quickly, and on and on...sigh
if i were a cop (& we know i’d be a good one) I’d risk my job to stop for a moment & make sure he was okay until EMTs got there....you know, something a good cop would do. https://t.co/1iNfVpXZyC
@SirajAHashmi Do EMTs appreciate being the mop up crew for this kind of thing? "Better get a medic" as they walk on
@Alex_TheCatLady @patDrinks2much @scottheins @desusnice did you not see the NYC EMTs mobbed and attacked with fireworks? the DCFD ladder truck held at gunpoint? the unknown fire company putting out a car fire have his hose yanked? flash back to 2015, Baltimore, man SK SK slashes a supply line while crews were inside a burning cvs?
@nopeoftheworld So you know, ignoring curfew and going into a riot zone isn't going to win you any brownie points, no matter how altruistic your intentions are. Leave medic duties to EMTs and paramedics. They won't get shot at like your dumb ass will.
@adamcarolla @joepalojoe If doctors and nurse were first responders why don’t they respond to emergencies like EMTs/Firefighters/ Police
firefighters & emts the only heroes in my eyes. fuck a pussy ass cop. https://t.co/z5DiM4xX3M
@DaveEuph300 @Melkazzy @markpoloncarz Likely more than that...he’s posturing see his left hand drawn up near his chest? That’s a sign of serious brain injury. At the very least, an officer should have rendered first aid until EMTs arrived. They acted like no big deal. Sickening.
@KonistMan @TheUncleAlShow If this was the case, EMTs would of noticed and would of reached the media. But no...
@evan_williams_ @melissa11023638 @Blindingu4life @AttorneyGGriggs @shaunking @MeritLaw now they had a case for 3rd degree. But attempting to over prosecute at 2nd or 1st because a screeching mob is threatening you? They've fucked their case, the defense will simply say "my client used an approved restraint on a resisting suspect and called EMTs, no intent to kill"
@katriona1013 @ClimateChangeS7 @veggirl1107 @kumailn The EMTs weren't "somewhere over there" They were with the cops as part of their group. National Guard supplements local law enforcement when it's necessary. Cops are often tasked with doing something else when medical assistance is seconds away.
grateful to chiropractors who came to jail support but also feeling guilty as i curl up in the van to snooze cause i’m the unofficial medic for jail support until 6 am and undoing all of their work. ps! if you can medic (nurses, MPs, drs, emts), esp. overnight, DM me. 🙏
@powercreek @NicholousSilva @YaYaJeffrey @draven_jonny @cnnbrk EMTs, nurses, and doctors are required to view and analyze numerous scenarios. This helps with learning how to treat and recognize many real-life injuries and illnesses. He saw the SIGNS and recognized the SYMPTOMS. He knows PROTOCOL. AGREED! Looks like a brain injury to me!! 💙
@MarlaMHughes @ClimateChangeS7 @veggirl1107 @kumailn The guy bled because he fell over, he fell over because he was pushed. And that's all in that video. Would you step over a bleeding man because there are EMTs somewhere over there? As you're standing there wouldn't you wait, shout for the EMTs, make sure they can get to him?
@IgorAmerican @trish_regan If you defund police, fire fighters and EMTs will not be showing up either. They’re not going to feel safe. These democratic governors need to give up the funding for their personal security details before giving up funding for the public’s security.
@RakugaSecond @ayasebun I think that's also a really good point; American media has tons of 'badass renegade cop' archetypes to point to; there's only been like three movies ever about firefighters and I can't think of ANY about EMTs
@doramu @waltshaub They need to move on so they aren't in the way of the EMTs seen in back. Not defending the guy, he should lose his job. But, the rest of them are behaving as they should. Clear the area and let the medics work.
[ Scanner ] (Communications offering EMTs) 3C: "We have a combat medic EMT here, we are good now."
Unfortunately this is untrue. as a medic of Minneapolis those are official Minneapolis/Hennepin county uniforms for EMTS and Paramedics. We wear vests for protection as well. https://t.co/ZtW69iYtOY
They had EMTs on the scene If you're just someone working and your coworker does something really stupid Shouldn't they be the one who's punished? https://t.co/nTFjjieBvs
@lidstone_david @Sethrogen The police themselves admitted that the person was injured. The EMTs would have found something like this immediately.
@Daikanu @RakugaSecond I hope it's okay to interject but I worry it's because they don't play into any power fantasy. Cops get to wield power, emts and fire fighters.. Don't
@rachelsmith999 @davidallengreen @metpoliceuk I comments on police reddit such as: “He shouldn’t have approached a line of riot police”. “He touched an officer. That’s assault”. (!!!) “The officer who pushed him had lots of adrenaline and overestimated his strength”. “It’s fine. They knew there were EMTs right behind”
@LS_BNA001 @KremlinTrolls The video stopped before the EMTs, which were with the cops, got there.
@pagey2410 @MikeBul64700146 @logie_anna @doubtinthomas82 @TruthSeekerTKS Yep and they weren't emts they were police.... and if he really couldn't breathe he wouldn't have been able to shout that he couldn't. Its one of their best false flags tbf. Up there with 9/11
@CSPDPIO You do realize you just exposed your department’s plan(s) to initiate/escalate violence against them, right? You lot are despised for a reason. There are no songs called F*ck the firemen, EMTs, nurses or doctors. IJS🤷🏾♀️
@TheCJWest @Sethrogen @RealPDeLuise Unlikely. It would have been found by the EMTs and included into the police statement. The police statement says that he was injured.
Police are assaulting more than "protesters." They are assaulting journalists, professionals, nurses, EMTs, students, janitors, secretaries, executives, entrepreneurs, clerks, laborers, and everyone that lands their radar. nobody is safe. even you and me.
@Yatoneros @krumblin_herb @U_S_A_________ @ShawnVee07 @VicStoddard Glad you mentioned EMTs , also made no attempts to ressusisatte him then lied in the police report saying he died in hospital , so I hope that’s not where your attaining your information.
@PortlandPolice No picture, no evidence. No evidence, no crime. Shove it, but not so far that you have to seek medical attention. You wouldn't believe what those poor EMTs deal with because of you.
@lidstone_david @Sethrogen They had EMTs come over to check him out. Had it been fake they would have readily made a comment on this “stunt” to the media. He can’t go to the barber right now because of covid. That’s his damn hair you fool.
@GothicNeo @egoraptor The cop behind them called EMT on his radio you can see on his left shoulder. They were on their way to enforce the curfew and no police will stop as long as the EMTs are on their way
@RyanBigMack @krumblin_herb @U_S_A_________ @ShawnVee07 @VicStoddard But he was drugged up, and resisted arrest 2 times before he ended up collapsing. Then, EMTs were called to the scene as he was clearly struggling from a medical failure while he continued to resist. His system was unstable due to having 4x a lethal dosage of drugs.
EMTs making barely above minumum wage is actually BAFFLING. these people literally save lives? hello? imagine working such a stressful and hard job thats so rewarding except u can barely like afford your bills lol
@funnynametaken @TheExcelllence They called the EMTs and until the area is safe because of the protesters the EMTs are powerless to go in.
@Wanbox82 @enniccino Those community groups can be people working for community service or as nonviolent deescalation professionals with a knowledge of human behavioral analysis and potential first aid for those who might be victims of civilian violence. Like EMTs, not police
tw graphic, tw blood this man will probably have to deal with medical bills for that injury, regardless of if the pigs had EMTs on site, he should NOT have to deal with this injury. this is excessive force. fuck cops. Fuck. Cops. https://t.co/4tXVFeIn6k
@TheHFWarrior All the other workers in food supply chains, caregivers for children and elders, EMTs and firefighters, transit workers.
@frostygirl28 @Sethrogen Like the EMTs on scene wouldn’t have immediately noticed that if it were true? Fucking moron.
@katriona1013 @ClimateChangeS7 @veggirl1107 @kumailn EMTs are there. The brief video (That happens to miss why the guy bled) cut before they showed up.
@thisladysview @citypages Theres a reason there aren't hit songs titled F*ck the Fire Department or F*ck EMTs. Your services are only valued in fiction because Police Departments in the real world are corrupt, unjust and abusive.
@horglund @SuperSaiyanGray @griffinthomson @Inevitable_ET You expect us to believe that he's really bleeding rather than it being a giant conspiracy between the camera, victim, police, EMTs, doctors, cops' chain of command, bystanders, and local government?
FIRST of all, why didn’t the emts tell the officer to get off his neck to check his pulse & breathing??? why didn’t they start cpr??? why were there no spinal precautions taken??? George Floyd didn’t receive ANY proper medical attention!! i’m even more disgusted now. https://t.co/rYxIvejCRc
@K_Strehle @andrewkatz4 @neontaster They have video...he immediately gets on his radio and calls for EMTs. It’s clear as day. As for why national guard checked on him, they probably had EMTs on hand as well.
Thinking back to 911 when America was attacked by terrorists how all of us came together trying to heal our wounds! It was mass murder killed nearly 3,000 lives More than 400 of the dead were first responders, including New York City firefighters, police officers & EMTs.
@alexis_prince_ @lyann151 @Biyombonesaw @MsNyajuok You don’t see EMTs & Fire fighters blinding people completely, causing severe brain damage, cracking skulls, killing innocents deliberately like the police currently. So yeah EMTs & Fire Fighters are more useful to society because they actually DO THEIR JOBS PROPERLY
@lndubose13 @BethProgressive @WBFO You can see the 2 National Guard EMTs at 0:22, one of them kneeling down. Cops had to keep going clearing the sidewalk so that a crowd wouldn't gather around him.
@JimRobertson17 @EgSophie It is never ok to attack peaceful protesters. Examples: targets on press, clergy, medics, emts, people standing off to the side, people sitting to the side,run people over. But hey grats cops. You showed your true colors
@K_Strehle @andrewkatz4 @neontaster That’s actually the correct decision. You don’t move people with head injuries. It could make it worse. He had other officers clear the area while he immediately called for EMTs. That officer did the right thing.
@lndubose13 @BethProgressive @WBFO He was hurt BAD because he FELL. He lost his balance and stumbled over his own feet. They pushed him back, it was an accident that he fell. They didn't walk by like no big deal they knew the EMTs were right there.
The other officer did the right thing afterward stopping everyone from touching or moving him. He had a head injury. He had the other officers clear the area and then immediately called for EMTs. That was the correct decision. All those cops don’t share the same responsibility.
@Inevitable_ET @outsidekitty Why if this was fake would the people that attended to him not notice it right away... why wouldn’t the EMTs? Why wouldn’t the hospital? They are all “in on it”?! 😂🤣 you guys give Democrats way too much credit ... if we were that powerful your buffoon wouldn’t be POTUS
@NanicaBrown @RKSAlberta Far be it for me to say this..... But emts are in a similar position of power as cops. They work together. They know each other. Emts would never ever narcan addicts not overdosing just to inflict pain despite dozens of complaints about it.......
@nuckyross @EatPrayFashion @2dollarsricher Why are the EMTs cops? https://t.co/E5y9mapFnT
You know...I thought the same thing when I watched this video. The EMTs that arrived on scene struck me as odd. https://t.co/yA4dDvZyLU
Tony Timpa called the 911 for help and got murdered. Cops laughed as joked they pinned him to the ground for 13 minutes, under the knee and body weight of an officer. EMTs arrived and gave him a sedative even though he was sedate https://t.co/tvv0rA7rHT
@JeffreeStar There were National Guard EMTS on the scene w/I seconds. The cops continued clearing the area to prevent a crowd from gathering around him.
@bells110 @BradenVick @glowwghoul @fmch6444 @coach_sjkl @TK9582 @MaryDillon31 @WBFO @MikeDesmondWBFO Not national guard. Those are Border Patrol Search Trauma and Rescue Agents (BORSTAR). They specialize in traumatic combat casualty care (T- triple C). All are cross certified as EMTs and some are paramedics as well. Probably the best possible people to have on standby.
