Cop assaults EMT rushing patient to ER because ambulance door dinged his car

The Rochester police department has a history of controversies. Throughout the years, their cops have been documented murdering individuals wearing hoods, pepper spraying toddlers, beating individuals to death, and torturing young children. Now they can add harassing and kidnapping an EMT to their extensive list of undesirable actions.

A Rochester police officer has been placed on desk duty and is now under investigation after he was seen on camera punching and then arresting an EMT during a medical emergency. What was the officer's rationale for the action? While offloading the patient, the EMT inadvertently dinged his vehicle's door.

The cop had parked his vehicle in the emergency unloading area of the hospital, which is only approved for ambulances, for unknown reasons. When the ambulance arrived to offload the patient, the officer elected not to move his vehicle, leaving it in the path of the EMTs.

As the paramedic discharged the patient, the ambulance door accidentally struck the police car. The officer's insanity prevented him from seeing that he had contributed to an accident by blocking the emergency exit.

Officer attempted to detain the EMT before she could even unload her patient. This cop started impeding her progress, jeopardising the patient's life since the ambulance door dinged his vehicle.

After transporting the patient inside, the EMT decided to cooperate with the police officer. However, the cop seemed unconcerned about the patient's life and requested the EMT's identification.

The EMT persisted in carrying the patient inside the hospital before presenting her identification, which enraged the officer, who followed her inside and assaulted her.

As the police sought her identification, the EMT went to the check-in counter to assist her patient. As she checked in the patient, the officer attacked her by taking her arm and twisting it behind her back, then smashing her against the counter, handcuffing her violently, and carrying her outside.

The police then arrested the EMT before transporting her to prison.

The Rochester police department informed News 10 that the officer has been put on administrative leave and that "under the request of Chief Smith, the professional standards unit is initiating an internal investigation."

Following the broadcast of the video, the EMT was inundated with praise and support, and the ambulance service issued the following statement over the weekend.

"The leadership and staff of Monroe Ambulance appreciate the outpouring of social media support for our highly valued employee who was placed in an uncomfortable circumstance. We firmly endorse her patient care focus and are grateful for your willingness to openly support her patient advocacy.

We would ask that you refrain from making disparaging remarks about RPD as an organisation. This event was committed by a single man and is being investigated by his company; regardless of perspective, everyone is entitled to due process. We have faith that the situation will be handled professionally and responsibly.

In addition to commending our medic for concentrating on her patient despite the chaos, we would also want to publically recognise the Gates Ambulance EMT who assisted her after her colleague was detained in order to guarantee that our patient was handled professionally and responsibly.

We will publicly recognise her excellent reaction to a patient and fellow clinician in need, regardless of the patch on her arm, pending approval by the Gates EMT. Thank you very much for your professionalism despite the turmoil."

New Audio Reveals ‘Conspiracy’ To Cover Up the Killing of Breonna Taylor — Lawyer

Before the tragic homicide of George Floyd through police, police officers in Louisville, KY broke into a harmless couple's domestic and murdered carried out EMT, Breonna Taylor as she slept in her bed.

Now, newly launched audio recordings from the investigation into Taylor's deadly capturing paint a worrying photo of how police allegedly conspired to cowl up the small print of her death.

Though police declare to have introduced themselves, Walker says he and Breonna heard nothing prior to the knocking and the law enforcement officials - who have been now not in uniform - barging into his house.

In his interview, Walker tells investigators he and Taylor have been snoozing in the front of a film in the bedroom when they heard loud banging.

"Audio of #KennyWalker and Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly definitely discloses that there has been a CONSPIRACY to cowl up #BreonnaTaylor's killing because day one!!," he wrote,.

UPDATE: Audio of #KennyWalker and Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly really exposes that there has been a CONSPIRACY to cowl up #BreonnaTaylor's killing when you consider that day one!! ALL the officers worried want to be FIRED and CHARGED with murder.

From the shady nature of obtaining the warrants to the coached interviews, the whole state of affairs was once set up to punish Walker whilst clearing the officers.

Senator Proposes Revolutionary ‘Breonna Taylor Act’ to Ban No-Knock Raids in America

On Thursday, in a historical move, all 26 members of the Louisville, Kentucky Metro Council voted to pass a ban on no-knock warrants, a measure known as “Breonna’s Law.” The law was named after the former EMT who was gunned down as she slept in her bed by cops raiding the wrong home. The move still needs to be approved by the mayor, but it is revolutionary in precedent.
“This is one of many critical steps on police reform that we’ve taken to create a more peaceful, just, compassionate and equitable community,” Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer said, vowing to sign the bill “soon as it hits my desk.”
While this move is certainly noteworthy and will lead to a massive shift in law enforcement procedures that will undoubtedly save lives, it is reserved solely for the people of Louisville, Kentucky.
So, after this move, Sen. Rand Paul (R) Kentucky, proposed to make this a nationwide ban in one of the most unprecedented anti-police state moves we’ve ever seen.
“After talking with Breonna Taylor’s family, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s long past time to get rid of no-knock warrants. This bill will effectively end no-knock raids in the United States,” Paul said.
As Axios reports, Paul introduced a bill on Thursday that would prohibit federal law enforcement and local police that receive federal funding from entering homes without warning through a “no-knock” warrant, which was reportedly obtained by the officers that shot Louisville resident Breonna Taylor in her home on March 13.
Why it matters: In the wake of nationwide protests against the killing of George Floyd, there’s now a bipartisan consensus that police reform is necessary.
  • Senate Republicans led by Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) are planning a package that would require states to provide data on the use of no-knock warrants, but Paul’s proposal goes even further.
  • House Democrats, meanwhile, have proposed their own bill that would reform police training, make lynching a federal crime, and ban chokeholds and the use of no-knock warrants in drug cases.
As many have pointed out, however, the bill proposed by Democrats is full of questionable language which could end up hindering the already difficult process of seeking transparency in policing. Rand Paul’s proposal we are far more effective at curbing police violence.

The idea of ceasing the use of no-knock raids is revolutionary when it comes to policing in the United States and its importance cannot be overstated.

Across the country—largely due to the failed drug war—police conduct more than 20,000 no-knock raids a year.
Breonna was murdered during one of them. Countless others are beaten, terrorized, and killed as well, and just like Breonna, cops often act on bad information.
“In theory, no-knock raids are supposed to be used in only the most dangerous situations … In reality, though, no-knock raids are a common tactic, even in less-than-dangerous circumstances,” Vox wrote in a revealing investigation in 2015. Case in point, Breonna Taylor.
A whopping 79 percent of these raids — like the one used to murder Dennis and Rhogena Tuttle in Houston, TX in 2019 — is for search warrants only, mostly for drugs. Just seven percent of no-knock raids are for crisis situations like hostages, barricaded suspects, or active shooters, according to an investigation by the ACLU.
What’s more, the study by the ACLU found that in 36 percent of SWAT deployments for drug searches, and possibly in as many as 65 percent of such deployments, no contraband of any sort was found.
Not only do these raids appear to be mostly unproductive, but they are often carried out on entirely innocent people based on lies, wrong information, or corruption, laying waste to the rights—and lives—of unsuspecting men, women, children, and their pets.
As we’ve seen in the case of Roderick Talley, drug task forces routinely conspire together to raid the homes of innocent people as a means of justifying themselves.
Cops have been routinely caught planting evidence, lying on warrants, and raiding wrong homes, and when we attempt to question this madness, we’re accused of hating cops.
Raiding homes with no-knock warrants was proven so horrifyingly ineffective last year in Houston with the murder Dennis and Rhogena Tuttle, that Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo vowed to end them.
However, unlike the aforementioned bans at the federal and city level, this was the chief simply promising not to do them.
As we reported at the time, in a move TFTP has never seen, the Houston police department is claiming they are taking steps to prevent future scenarios like this from happening—by ceasing the use of no-knock raids.
“The no-knock warrants are going to go away like leaded gasoline in this city,” Acevedo said during a heated town hall meeting on Monday.
“I’m 99.9 percent sure we won’t be using them,” he continued.
Hopefully, this bill receives the bipartisan support it needs to pass and end this violent and destructive practice. It will take us one step closer to one of the most important solutions to ending police brutality, by chipping away at the war on drugs.
