Utah Nurse Arrested Over Blood Draw: This Shouldn’t Happen Again

Well, there you go...

We will wait for the "investigation"... of the police investigating... .

... themselves!

The officers weren't even put on (paid) leave until the video went public. Going to be trouble burying this one.

Utah hospital tell police to stay away from nurses after arrest of Alex Wubbles

I can't cut and paste from that article, but two interesting points:

1. Police have been banned from patient areas, and direct interaction with nurses, and

2. Wubbles holds the university police and hospital security at fault for not intervening.

I don't necessarily agree with those things, but they are an interesting development.

UPDATE:

Chief: Officers should have protected nurse at U of U

It's virtue signaling when done in hindsight, but this policy could lead to interesting confrontations.

For that reason, I think it's just puffing.

It didn't look to me as if

It didn't look to me as if the hospital guards were armed. For that reason I can understand, at least in part, why they hesitated to confront the uniformed assailant wearing a police uniform and a loaded sidearm. Yes, they were deficient in not defending the nurse.

Second point against the officer. He stated that he would be bringing the hospital all the homeless victims and take all the "good patients" ( those with insurance) to other hospitals. The officer was employed by a contract ambulance service. That statement got him promptly FIRED from the ambulance service. Something the police department should have already done for his"services" with them.

Ohio news photographer

Ohio news photographer reportedly shot by deputy while setting up to take pictures of traffic stop

“He said there was no warning, no ‘show me hands’ or ‘drop what you have,'” the paper owner said, while changing Tuesday’s front page to reflect his son’s shooting around 3 a.m.

From the hospital, Grimm retraced his steps leading up to the shooting, wondering what caused the deputy to reach for his gun.

“Until I hear his side, I guess I won’t know what I did wrong,” Grimm said.
