All these shit ass cops are making those of us who are white and work in emergency responding look bad. I beg you as a white female paramedic to not associate them with us. I was trained properly to never see color as a factor in my care and treatment of patients. While there are always bad employees we are there to help. I do not like most pd even working side by side with them. I have been assaulted and seen my partner assaulted numerous times while they stand there. I’ve seen a medic hit in the head with a bottle while doing CPR by a family yelling he wasn’t doing enough and the cops just stand there. I’ve seen ems and fire personnel arrested by cops for not listing to orders that endanger our crews. I’m afraid this surfacing of police abuse of power will endanger those of us who don’t care what color you are even more than we already are. We are here to help you and are to be blind to circumstance. We treat the patient not anything else. Please don’t be afraid and if you see something that is wrong report it. Please let us do our job to help. Most of us want to.
