    Just like “yo’ baby’ daddie”, that’s called a “NEGLIGENT DISCHARGE”.

    When the Confederacy fired on Ft Sumpter in 1861, Lincoln was completely caught off-guard by the Commandant of the US Military Academy at West Point. The career officer chose to fight under the flag of ‘The Old Dominion”. The Commonwealth of Virginia. That was Robert E. Lee. Until the Battle of Gettysburg, PA, it was widely believed that the South would win the “War between the States”. That’s also why the National Cemetery at Arlington, VA is where it’s at: Lincoln wanted Lee to be reminded every day for the rest of his life, of the cost of that war, so he put it on Lee’s in-laws property. His wife was George Washington’s granddaughter.

    But is he’s really any different than all the knuckle-draggers’ that vote for him?

    @TNAT:

    1. Flying a US flag inverted IS NOT a sign your country is in distress, it’s a sign the position or ship is in distress. You must have flunked American history… several times.
    2. Sitting on your butt and running your yap doesn’t fulfill your oath.
    3. If that’s what “makes you sad…” WHO CARES?
    4. What about ‘venting your sorrow’ to the closest active duty service member that’s ‘walked the walk’?
    5. Have a nice day, Sarge.

    Why do all these ‘anti-christian terrorists’ get to remain anonymous? What other cowards get the same “privilege”?

    @patty henry,
    I agree and would like to add, ref American/world history. Noting the “?” in green ink, I recall reading about the ‘history’ of said commodity in WWll. The German facilitators of the “Final Solution” used green ink exclusively to process those going to the death camps. The Germans were profoundly competent bureaucrats, even in such reprehensible duties. After the war, such reminders were shunned by the business world and fell out of use.
    Our local fire chief had been a POW in the war, captured by the Germans. He absolutely forbid the use of the European siren (Hi-Lo’s) as it reminded him of horrible memories. It seems ironically revealing that a ‘Common Core’ believer would use green ink in his/her classroom. Another call for more history in the classroom. We aren’t going to live forever. Then again, I never went to public school.

    I have a hard time believing the Master Chief present would have permitted this kind of breakdown of discipline on such a “high-profile” mission. For him to report back to his command with a …mess as described would have not been worthy of all the risks involved.

    Who’s going to have time for all this ‘recreation’? Get in and get the —-out. They already have a helo crash outside. Now they’re going to have an impromptu ‘mad minute’?

    This is amateur stuff. Something that Democrats would do. (THAT’S why they get left behind!!)

    ANYONE that uses the phrase “routine traffic stop” (sic) is a fool.

    They have said, “NO BODY on Earth, could be worse than the Gores!”
    They would rather shoot their own dog than get THAT assignment.

    Hey ‘Kafka’ I’m sure you EARNED those feelings.

    @smokey2:
    Clinton was convicted in federal court of perjury in the Paula Jones case and lost his law license for 8 years. All that became of him was to become a millionaire and be ‘lauded’ as an archangel of the Obama faithful.
    Risk v benefit analysis…

    Monk:

    May I suggest “bumper pool”?

    Doesn’t Bill Clinton have a felony conviction in federal court for perjury in the Paula Jones case? Lost his license to practice law for 8 years, or something like that.

    Do whatever you want. It will be overturned by the 9th Circuit en bank, anyway.

    Just a second, ‘Coach’. Met a Master Chief (ret?) in Corps school (long, LONG time ago) that invented a device for the field, while on AD w the Marine Corps (FMF corpsman). Offered it to the Navy FOR FREE and was dismissed as ‘insignificant’. Got out, started his business and the Navy found out how successful it was, wanted to assert proprietary control. “Butt out, guys! You had your chance and here’s the letters” (I’m definitely para-phrasing here.) Never been on a rescue without a Hare Traction splint. Thanks, Master Chief !!! (FMF is “Fleet Marine Force”. Denotes Navy corpsmen serving w USMC.)

    Just don’t try that on your bag of saline: 1/2 way in, falls down & rips your line out.

    (and nurses NEVER think of that idea!)

    Aside from exposing another ‘prevarication’ from the principals involved in this ‘malfeasance/misfeasance/nonfeasance’, one could wonder if the significance of the US Navy ships named on this map are obvious to all? Chief McFaul was also a Navy SEAL, a Chief corpsman I believe, that fell in ’89, while engaging enemy at an airport in Panama. Jason Dunham, a Medal of Honor recipient, was a US Marine corporal in Iraq, that jumped on a live grenade to save his buddies. Robert Dean Stetham was a Navy sailor on TWA 847, that was murdered by Hezzbollah cowards and dumped on the tarmac in Beirut. Carl Brashaer was a Navy Master chief diver that served many years leading as an expert Navy Diver. Admiral O’Kane was the CO on the USS Tang, a diesel sub in WWll THE most famous boat in the Pacific theater. He survived the Japanese POW camps, despite all odds. PO1 Williams is the most decorated enlisted sailor.. EVER. Got his MoH running riverine patrol boats in ‘Nam. If I missed others, my most humble apologies.
    These vessels would have run ‘in harms way’ at a moments notice, if summoned. Their history and tradition of courage and sacrifice are what is THE ISSUE in the Benghazi attack. The service of those SEALs lost on that day is for others to tell. All those on station that night deserve our nation’s respect and admiration. Fair winds and trailing seas, men. We salute you! The truth will come out… eventually.

    It’s one or the other: a care-giver or a cop. Which is it? get involved with the patient and no longer is there any law-enforcement on scene. Nobody can do both jobs at the same time.
    What happens if the cop helps one patient and then needs to be a cop again? Abandon the patient? Ask any health care professional IN ANY STATE. This is not 1980 anymore. I’m pretty sure this cop had help on the way. This isn’t ‘punishment’. All that “stuff” in the back of those ambulances is there for EMS providers. Let cops et al continue to do the jobs they’re needed to do.

    I have no idea what this officer’s was thinking. I do know the survival rate for a trauma arrest is about 1 in >3000. If someone’s heart stops because of devastating trauma, it’s because there is a total loss of blood inside the body. No amount of CPR will correct that situation. If we could watch our viscera (internal organs) during routine activity, they tend to move around a bit. When we are in an extreme deceleration, that becomes a sudden jerk. The vessels we live by in the womb, before we are born, become ligaments when no longer hollow and a conduit for blood. These same structures will rip a big hole in the aorta, slice the liver in half plus more damage. CPR won’t fix that. It can fix sudden electrical problems, drowning and suffocation incidents, etc. There could be other helpful tasks in this situation: monitor a carotid pulse while others are working, making sure there are no other victims, updates for responding units, prep or wave off air assets (helos), etc. But doing “valiant efforts” for dubious reasons, I’m treading on sensitive ice here, but make sure limited resources are best directed to areas w best chances for survival. The officer is in charge of the scene, NOT patient care. She is responsible for the management of the overall situation, NOT on just one issue. Those criticizing her for not doing CPR are not public safety professionals and while they are free to speak their minds, they’re factually wrong.

    On one hand, we have stories with teachers “acting stupidly”, ie. 5 year old boys, charged with actual felonies for biting Pop-Tarts into the shape of a gun.

    On the other, there is a relentless litany of school related shootings.

    There is an undeniable link between anoxic (TOXIC) liberals and school shootings.
