That story about the man shooting at EMT's after be crashed his car....the EMT returned fire.  The story sounds as if the EMT was armed?

Are EMT's ever armed, even in the US?

Wouldn't it be nice to have some Boondock Saints kicking around?

They are in some places. That story had it all, roll up on a DUI, gas leak, armed paramedic exchanging gunfire with patient/suspect... !

But, what did you think of this story?

This happened the other day with a college girl in Connecticut,

College student sits against a glass firehouse door
FD gets a call
Door goes up
They run her over
She dies.

Reminds me years ago when the firemen used to ride the back step. The Chauffeur ( that's what they called them ) took the same corner the same way the same speed he had done for years. Never an incident. One of the guys fell off the back step and killed. Just one of those things...

Student should have known she was sitting with her back against a giant door, which moves when emergency vehicles need to go somewhere.

Student should have moved her @$$ pretty darn quickly when said door started to open. 

I don't know what else to say.  Of all the places to just sit down, right against the sliding door of the local FD vehicle bay is the place she picks?   :facepalm:

A Taser is considered somewhat safe ...unless you use it 18 times while the EDP is in the shower.

QUOTE

April 27, 2018

According to the records, here’s what happened:

On the morning of May 25, a neighbor called police because Trammell, who had knocked on her door, was naked in the hallway, talking about the devil and his brother. She feared he was experiencing a psychotic break.

Trammell had not threatened anyone or brandished a weapon. When police arrived, a neighbor told them she feared he might harm himself. Trammell’s downstairs neighbor told them water was leaking through the ceiling from his apartment.

Rather than waiting for 25 minutes for someone to arrive with a key, police broke down the door and walked through the apartment to the bathroom, where they found Trammell taking a shower, drinking from a jug of water.

When the officers spoke to Trammell, he stared at them and did not reply.

Munoz reached for Trammell, who pushed him away. That’s when Munoz first deployed his Taser, causing Trammell to fall backward into the tub. After initially lying still, Trammell struggled as Munoz and Rohleder tried to handcuff him, so they tased him some more.

During the struggle, the officers dropped their Tasers. A third officer, who was outside he bathroom, handed hers to one of them.

The officers called West Allis police for help. West Allis recommended disengaging, so Munoz and Rohleder did.

Rohleder pulled the trigger of his Taser one more time from the hallway, while the leads to its wires were still embedded in Trammell’s body. Rohleder told investigators “this was not an intentional deployment, but occurred spontaneously when the West Allis police asked him if the Taser wires were still connected,” according to Chisholm's letter.

When paramedics arrived, Trammell was handcuffed and struggling on the ground outside his apartment. They gave him two sedatives, ketamine and midazolam, in an attempt to calm him down, the medical examiner’s report says.

By the time they got him into the ambulance, Trammell had stopped breathing and had no pulse. He was pronounced dead within minutes of arriving at the hospital.

The medical examiner listed the cause of Trammell’s death as excited delirium, a controversial condition often cited when police use force.
