The only living being I will accept the Nuremberg defense ("I was only doing my job") from, is a guard dog, because it doesn't know any better.

I'm also not fond of the phrase "business is business".

JPINFV: Goimir: Fun fact: an ambulance, by law, is not permitted to run a red light or to speed. So when one of your loved ones is being transported, please inform the driver that you wish them to obey all traffic laws as they apply to normal situations.

Fun fact... in California an authorized emergency vehicle facing a forward facing steady red light and sounding a siren as necessary is exempt from the speed limit and red lights, as well as essentially the rest of the vehicle code in terms of rules of the road, provided it is done with due regard. Ambulances in California are one type of authorized emergency vehicle. California Vehicle Code section 21055-21056.

What sort of backwards state do you live in?

doglover: mr_a: I do not support violence, especially against law enforcement and public officials.

But in this case, I might make an exception. What an ass.

I also do not condone violence against LEOs as policy. However, policy is not enough for every situation. Sometimes, force major strikes and you have to fall back to a good moral compass and the character to do what's right.

In this case, good. The traffic warden is lucky to be alive. Not because of the assault, but because anyone so butt farking stupid that they tried to ticket a man putting his wife in a hearse on her funeral day should have long ago killed himself by gross negligence, like bringing the hair dryer into the bathtub to save time.

I have nothing but disgust for the warden and the council's lack of an apology.


hehehe, this is the first time I have ever said "I agree with doglover"

^^^ WHAT HE SAID

for farks sake have some compassion you bureaucratic asshole

JPINFV: Goimir: Got 45 minutes to wait?

No... but I also don't live in the middle of nowhere. As such, response times for full time career paramedics is less than 10 minutes from placing the call to 911. Just because you choose to live someplace remote doesn't mean you also get to choose to ignore the traffic laws.


... Nobody is ignoring the traffic law -- they are just using proper judgement to say that the spirit of the law would understand.

If you cant stop following the rules to make things run smooth or to make something work in a crisis then go hang yourself now.

If i'm camping and someone puts a chainsaw through their shin then damn straight im going to try to drive them the best i can to somewhere they can get help. Even if i'm speeding. Even if im drunk.

Empathy. Its important to have for people.

I absolutely support violence, particularly against LEO and other enforcement thugs. Don't like the hate? Get a job that isn't based on causing suffering to others.

A lot of people here are saying the LEO's actions were insensitive, but that doesn't begin to cover it. If he'd been arguing with someone across the street, that would be insensitive. He was ticketing a car directly behind the hearse in a funeral procession. He was being an *ss.

That was a terrible thing to do, but then after the guy said, "That's my wife in that hearse," any LEO with the barest hint of sanity and/or compassion would have said, "Oh my God, I'm so sorry," taken the ticket back and torn it up. But no, this guy tries to justify his horrible action, and keeps doing it, to the spouse of the deceased. He was emotionally assaulting someone who was already in a very fragile state of mind. Someone who just lost their spouse is not in their right mind. He could have been killed. He's lucky he only got, "assaulted," which was probably just the guy rightfully calling the LEO an *ss or throwing the ticket back at him or something similarly silly.

Of course, the guy who, "assaulted" the LEO is also lucky he wasn't in the U.S. He could have been murdered in the street for not respecting the LEO's authoritEYE.

And then to top it all off, after that chain of terrible blunders by the LEO, the council refuses to apologize? Wow.

Except that the law views there to be a difference between an everyday emergency and a disaster situation where emergency services are unable to function properly. Yes, virginia, a cop WILL Pull you over for driving like an idiot for a medical emergency when you endanger others, give you a ticket, AND make you wait on an ambulance. (Which you probably should have called in the first place, considering there is documented benefits to waiting five minutes rather than rushing off full retard)

And when you hurt or kill someone, a jury isn't going to care that you thought you could get them there faster.

I tell parents and families all the time NOT to follow the ambulance and try to keep up, and NOT to turn on their hazard flashers. They drive like idiots, and end up getting other people hurt. (It's embarassing when you stop at a red light to clear the intersection, and the mother of your patients rear-ends your car because she thinks Red lights and sirens give her the right to blow the intersection)

mikefinch: If i'm camping and someone puts a chainsaw through their shin then damn straight im going to try to drive them the best i can to somewhere they can get help. Even if i'm speeding. Even if im drunk.

That's not empathy. Empathy is putting a tourniquet on your buddy's legs and calling 911 (which is quite possible in 90% of the United States today thanks to these magical things called cell phones). That's panicing, and endangering the life of the person you're trying to help. And if you're speeding and/or drunk, you're a dumbass to boot.

Seriously. Have you ever taken a first aid class and wondered why you don't transport the person yourself if it's anything other than a minor cut or illness? This is why. Those white boxes with the woo-woo and red lights have people who spent years of their life training to take care of, and SAFELY transport the guy-with-chainsaw-in-shin.

The person ITFA is not a LEO. He's a meter maid.

HA..That would be Justifiable Homicide in the US as the driver pulled his concealed hand gun and shot the stupid Mofo.

Suck it Pierce Morgan, you British Subject trying to use our 1st Amendment right to free speech to attack our 2nd Amendment right to Bear Arms.

Didnt you Brits learn anything from the battles of Lexington and Concord in 1776 when you tried to disarm the colonists then? The Minutemen shot half your force as you ran back to Boston.

We will not disarm, we will not become 'subjects', we will remain free.
