wow
. Sometimes, you gotta be sensitive to some extenuatingcircumstances. These pigs are ruthless though, they'll even stop you if you're tryin' to get to the hospital to see your dying mother in law
. That actually happened to a dude on the Houston Texans. I don'tunderstand the stupidity and just shear cruelty that some of these "police" exhibit.

And people wonder why some hate the police. They could've EASILY trailed the ambulance to the hospital, OR just radio'd in and got the info on wherethe ambulance was headed to have the EMT ticketed if in fact it was necessary.

This isn't even extenuating circumstances - they're just tripping and pulling them over and using the letter of the law to try and arrestsomeone. They shouldn't have been stopped in the first place because they are driving an ambulance.

That's just nuts. They deserve to lose their jobs and a lot more for the way they were acting.

I hate cops who think they can do or say whatever they want just because of their gun and their badge

An Emergency Medical Technician who was involved in a scuffle with an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper is speaking out about the incident.

Maurice White, Jr. is a critical care paramedic with the Creek Nation EMS. He was nearly arrested after the confrontation, which was captured by the cell phoneof Kenyada Davis.

Paul Franks was the driver of the ambulance, which was transporting a patient to a hospital in Prague.

White says he saw the trooper approaching from behind at a high rate of speed with lights activated, but he did not hear a siren. He says Franks had a car infront of him that his attention was focused on and hadn't seen the trooper before he was within a few feet of the ambulance.

"I called out to my partner and told him to pull to the side because there was a State Trooper behind us," White says.

White says as the trooper passed them, he made radio contact, telling Franks "you should consider checking your rearview mirrors".

White says a few blocks after this incident, another trooper entered the road at a high rate of speed, cutting in front of a car driven by a family member ofthe patient. White says he then saw another trooper approaching from the rear.

"As my partner was pulling onto the shoulder, the cruiser came alongside our unit and gestured for my driver to pull over," White says. "Whenthe officer came to a complete stop behind the ambulance, I noticed a woman in the front seat. Based on the officer's erratic driving behavior, I thoughtthat the woman in the front seat of the cruiser was in need of immediate medical attention; hence I exited the rear of the ambulance in order to assess thesituation."

White says the officer was in a rage when he approached them and yelled "get your a-- back here! I am giving you a ticket for failure to yield."White says he told the trooper they had a patient in the ambulance and that they were on their way to the hospital.

"He ignored my statement, became even more belligerent, and demanded my partner come to his patrol car so he could write him a ticket," White says."I calmly told the officer that we were transporting a patient and we could continue this at the hospital."

White says the trooper then approached him and shouted "you are under arrest for obstructing a police officer" and grabbed his arm to handcuff him. Abrief struggle followed, at which point the trooper grabbed White by the throat. The cell phone captured this incident on video.

White says the trooper later told him they could continue on to the hospital, but that he would be under arrest once they got there. White was never arrested,but says troopers told him he should be prepared to turn himself in if a warrant was issued.

Law the officers clearly violated: http://www.oscn.net/applications/oscn/DeliverDocument.asp?CiteID=69279
