If that was your grandma, is 10 people a waste of resources for ONE PERSON?

The difference between what you see that youtube clip and you see in real life is family. When there's a tragic event that happens at work, everyone gets a day off. These guys don't. They have to work through the chaos. You think it's fun seeing a co-worker you know getting pumped then whisked away in an ambulance? A dude you just talked to maybe hours ago you see looking at the sky but not blinking. Those extra officers you see leaving with the ambulance..most likely doing traffic control so the ambulance can get to the hospital faster; and yes they do that for public too. It's a eerie feeling, and some of those guys standing around most likely trying to figure what happen and what to do next. Everyone's human..
to be brutally honest, the cop was shot in the head, brain matter on the ground. he is dead. they dont need a traffic escort. another example of wasted resource. yes, i understand the family-pact of the largest gang in north america but do you think they would've done the same thing for a thug/homeless/civilian? welcome to the real world.

if you can handle the consequence of lying and ever need a fast response time, its no secret that you should tell the dispatcher there is an "officer in trouble". do you think that's fair when its their duty and job to protect and serve the public?

here's a video for comparison.


7 minutes of a guy not breathing and still handcuffed lol and compare the speed and alertness of responders in both videos. the atmosphere is polar opposites.

All I can say is you have to experience in real life with mental/physical fatigue to realize what is going on; not from an outside perspective.

In the video you posted, medics attended around 3:47. Again, we don't know how long the medics got to those 2 guys but I'm assuming it's around the same time (BTW I am not agreeing with the officer's actions that day in that video..).

i guess what im saying is i understand the emotions running high and the reactions, but i wish the police can perform the equivalent level of duty for civilians as well.

I thought this video was somewhat relevant and interesting.

I think that's the point, people are very quick to jump on the police for shooting someone who's unarmed but in some cases it happens so fast. Hind site is 20/20 but in a split second you just don't have the information or the time to always make the perfect decision.

It's hard for us to say, because we're watching and judging it from third person. The tension, anxiety, and fear that arises for officers out there is far more than we can imagine.
