ABUSE OF POWER AND EFFECTIVE RESULTS

1f1fa-1f1f8

A recent video of a nurse being arrested in the emergency room of a Utah hospital  is one of the many reasons why Americans are protesting the abuse and  misuse of police procedures.    While a patient lay in bed in serious condition from a automobile accident,  a very zealous  policeman decided that it was extremely  important to draw blood from the victim even though he had not been arrested and was unable to consent to the demand.

The E.R.nurse, defending the patient’s rights,  politely showed the officer   a written document of hospital blood drawing procedures used  nation wide. The document pertained to the drawing of blood  with out a warrant or consent of the patient.  The officer argued with her while she was on speaker phone with her supervisor who proceeded to explain  to  the officer that he was making a bad mistake in what he was trying to do. As the innocent  nurse spoke,  the officer overpowered her and physically abused her by placing her in hand cuffs; he then manhandled her while arresting and  placing her in a police vehicle with out regards to her rights.

“All he had to do was request the  results of a blood sample taken form the nurses records when the patient was admitted.”

 Incidents like this have caused  nation wide protests against police brutality and abuse of power. This could have been avoided by a mature person using  common sense and  good judgement.   The  officer rightfully was  fired for his stupid actions. In my opinion  he should have been given a fine and made an example for others who think that they can abuse the powers given to them.

 

Protesting is our American right and should not be denied but, using the flag is not an ethical and  proper way to protest.A gifted individual  who has made millions of dollars and lived the American dream, has used an issue (slavery), that happened  over 200 years ago to make a protest .  His stupid actions and desire to make a point which he is far removed, has brought attention  to the world. He has shamed out country  and brought embarrassment by showing disrespect to our servicemen who fought and lost their lives defending America and our flag.  What was he thinking.?
