"MTV News"  Probably the most racist video I've seen in a long time.

https://www.youtube.com/shared?ci=8Kxpm7GAjV4

The irony.

The only valid point of that entire video was the judicial leniency shown to that frat ******* who raped a student.

The BLM point not being the opposite of All-LM...in Chicago, it's BLDMTOB (Black Lives Don't Matter to Other Blacks)...to the tune of almost 3000 dead african-Chicagoans.

Joyce Carol Oates: Christianity ‘Virtually Synonymous’ with White Nationalism Across U.S.
Breitbart
by DANIEL NUSSBAUM13 Jan 2017

Author and prolific Tweeter Joyce Carol Oates openly pondered the state of Christianity in America in a post to her Twitter account Thursday afternoon — and believes Christianity is now indistinguishable from white nationalism in many parts of America.


More on LINK with replies from the Twitterverse.......Ummmm!.....Tweeterverse.......Ummmm!  Maybe I was correct the first time.

Interesting story. More on the subject, if interested.

Vancouver

Blood vessel bursts in spine
Paralyzed
Uses chin, drags himself to phone
Uses tongue, dials 911
40 minutes for paramedics

When seconds count...help is 40 minutes away.

A Vancouver man who was paralyzed when a blood vessel burst in his vertebrae says he had to wait nearly 40 minutes for an ambulance when he lives just two blocks from a hospital.

About par for Rural Sask. 40 minutes to get them across the street to the hospital.  2hrs more to fly them by STARS to Saskatoon.

Good grief!

Because it was in the city, this is what really got my attention,

Are ambulances usually dispatched from the hospital? Just saying that hasn't been my experience.  Still, 40 minutes is terrible...

Where I worked, closest car got the call. They tried to catch cars that were already "wheels rolling".

Our targeted response time was 8:59 minutes, 90% of the time.

Measured from the first ring on the 9-1-1 line in the CACC ( our communications centre ).

But, that was just to curbside. We had a lot of 5th floor walk-ups, high rises ( sometimes with elevator problems ), parks and ravines and "places of interest" that could take a lot of time.

Sometimes just trying to find people with the information given took a lot of time. eg: shopping mall or transportation centre etc...

There's also a lot of cabulance, or as one of my docs calls it disco taxi dispatches. These folks frequently call in with chest pain for example but are something completely different when you get them in the ER.

So the proximity of the hospital to this guy's house has absolutely nothing to do with the ambulance response time then. Typical media spin....

Not as a formal part of the dispatch system. Typically municipal ambulances are dispatched from ambulance/fire halls, or pre-positioned spots. Or at least they were when I moonlighted with EMS in Edmonton.

Doesn't matter where you are. There is just one question, "Is your stretcher clear?" It's a yes or no question. You can't lie, because the nurses are standing there watching and listening to your answer. So, you better tell the truth.  :)

Alberta has a different regulatory system than Ontario. Both provinces have different regulatory systems than British Columbia, where the call occurred.

If you know an EMS service, that's what you know - one EMS service. That's all I know, other than what I have read about others since I retired.

We didn't have moonlighters or part-time police officers, firefighters or paramedics in Toronto. "It's a career, not a hobby!"  :)
