    Watch this. Holy crap. I'm glad I don't like in Oklahoma.

    He gets tries to assist a situation, but gets there in time to not do anything. So instead, he goes to find the ambulance he passed on the road to go arrest someone.

    He detains the EMT, and delays the vehicle. Leaving the patient in the vehicle, with noone to care for her.

    I'm glad this finally got released. It just goes to show how big of a dick this guy is.

    I find it contemptable that so many police officers are only in their line of work so they can be officious pricks.

    They don't start out that way.. Ever meet an officer in his first year? You can see the glow in their eyes, the genuine concern for whatever it is they happen to be doing.. Then a few years down the road you meet the same officer, except that he stands with his chest puffed out and doesn't give a shit about anyone or anything and is a total dick to everyone within ear shot.

    Of course not, they have to integrate themselves into "the force" first by making their superiors and colleagues believe they are fit for duty.

    Its kind of hard to yield right of way when there's a car off to your right as a cop comes up on you. Anyone else see the car the ambulance had to swerve around as this dick flew up on him.

    He's a police officer, he can do nothing wrong!

    Anyway, didn't this happen earlier this week? My brother told me about the cell phone video a couple of days ago.

    Unbelievable... It's sad that they are willing to put peoples lives at risk for some bullshit. I have far more respect for an EMT than a police officer that's for sure.
