Uh, there was one officer killed and another seriously wounded in the shootout/chase.  This was the wounded guy obviously.

fusillade762: He lost ALL his blood?


I had my aneurysm I went through 267 units of blood. The human body usually holds about 10-12, maybe even 15 for a big man. So, yeah, it's not that uncommon in surgery, especially with the severing of the femoral to have that much bleeding. Mind you, not all of mine was whole blood, but blood, plasma, and platelets. Which, apparently kept me from bleeding even FASTER. A good trauma team can do wonders. I sent the folks who worked on me flowers after, and it seemed sort of hollow after I realized that they did over 26 hours of work on me.

Good on him, and good on his team.

There is a new technique gaining traction, and apparently, one of its practicioners treated this guy.

People who have been "dead" for over three hours have been resuscitated with no ill effects.  Really.

The trick is to use a machine that oxygenates the blood and keeps up the blood circulation, and also to cool the corpse dramatically.  All of this avoids apoptosis (suicide) of the brain cells, which starts within about (I think) three minutes of the oxygen supply being cut off.

Keep oxygenated blood flowing, via machine, because the heartbeat and breathing are non-exitent.  Some people can be brought back from being dead.  2X better success rate than CPR at this point.

Conspiracy theorists are working overtime on this one, trying to find the angle that proves this officer was really a Iraq war vet who was also a school bus driver at Sandy Hook and after quitting his job as a movie theater manager in Colorado.  Which, of course, will prove that this was a false flag attack headed by the FBI.

Sheeple.

Having worked security, I've worked with good cops and bad cops, but over all, most of the officers I've worked with over the years, have been decent folks, and they put themselves in harm's way fair often, and yeah, that tends to color their thinking at times. It can make a man distrustful and nervous when folks are jumpy, and that's why I try to be polite and friendly, and keep my hands in sight at all times. It's polite, for folks who might be asked to go into recockulously dangerous situations for me and mine. I don't do security any longer, because I don't like what it did to my thinking, and what I went through isn't half of what we ask of our police or military. They're doing hard jobs, and they are expected to be some ideal, and that isn't always the case, so I usually give them the benefit of the doubt, and treat them with the respect that they deserve.

Good on him, and good on his team on the scene and the hospital. All the hospitals in Boston had a helluva week, and from folks I know who live and work in Boston, they all busted a lot of ass and did so without a lot of thought. My hat's off to them all.

I'm sure if he keeps looking he'll find it. He should call his friend and see if he left it in the medicine cabinet....maybe if he takes a walk downs Second ave, towards St. Marks place........


Anyway. it doesn't sound like be bled out all at once, but during the course of his surgery they had to use about 10 units of blood before they had the bleeding controlled.

Doesn't make the story less interesting.

There was something in the scanner feed that makes me think yes. One of the cops was saying something about the transport of another officer to the emergency room and someone on the radio said something like "You know what happened there right" then a 1/2 hour later I remember alot of chatter about only tac teams with trauma plates and kit are to be doing X and all plainclothes officers are to be doing Y and uniformerd armored officers are to be doing Z. There was a big effort midway through the event to do that but no mention of it before. I'm wondering if this guy was blue on blue and thats what made them pull plainclothed and unarmored cops back.

Eh, the bit about the tac teams with trauma plates is quite easy to explain.  A SAPI plate has a better record than soft armor at protection.  Tac teams are more skilled and more highly trained in these types of manhunts.  They typically communicate better, they move more fluidly and they are typically equipped better.  Were it my scene, I'd have plain clothes officers in unmarked vehicles observing for the suspect, i'd have uniformed patrol officers on a perimeter and roving patrols, and i'd have the tac teams as basically a QRF, ready to respond to sightings/barricades/hostages/explosives, etc.
