This whole situation is just an example of American police being bad at their job. The training standards need to be increased. US police only get 400 hours training before being put on the job, which is insanely low.

Something that I notice a lot of people are missing entirely.. according to the story the "suspect" that the cop wanted blood drawn on was actually a victim, as in his truck was hit by a suspect the police were chasing.... so why the FUCK would he need a blood sample of a victim of crime to see if the VICTIM was under the influence?


It all started when a suspect speeding away from police in a pickup truck on a local highway smashed head-on into a truck driver, as local media reported. Medics sedated the truck driver, who was severely burned, and took him to the University of Utah Hospital. He arrived in a comatose state, according to the Deseret News. The suspect died in the crash.

Not only is she a nurse, which is a pretty universally appreciated profession. But she was also an Olympic athlete.

The woman is pretty much a national treasure. Definitely a poor decision on Jeff Payne's part Don't think he'll live this one down for quite a while.

I'm not much for suing, but that sounds like a serious lawsuit in the works, unlawful arrest, forcing a person to do something against the law...

in all honesty I believe cops need to take a chill pill and think before they act, or react. sure there's a lot of criminals and folks who are unrest/unhinged but that doesn't give any police officer regardless of unit to do something such as this and other recent accounts. sort of sad to see so many becoming fearful of cops because they too are becoming unhinged and doing, pretty much, whatever they feel like doing and/or to suit their needs. perhaps more cop training in chill pill 101 or something, teach them to think before they act. like this one cop drama show I like by blue bloods, for all the near misses and doing the right thing always goes unnoticed, but when one or two do something that violates unlawful acts, everyone knows about those cases. they aren't as rare as they use to be either.

To cover their own asses. Th police engaged in a dangerous chase on public streets causing a major accident that did severe physical harm to an innocent civilian. Their only way of saving face at this point is to do a blood draw on the victim and hope he has some kind of drug or alcohol in his system so they can pin the blame on him instead of admitting they made a mistake.

Cop should be fired on the spot. His sergeant that advised him to go ahead with it should also be fired. His partner who agreed with him should be fired. Every cop that watched this unfold and had no problem with it should be fired.

This shit will never, ever be fixed unless this blue wall authoritah bullshit gets purged from any given precinct. If there's a cop like this on the force and he still has a job then that's a cultural problem in his entire precinct. He's not just one bad apple. There's an entire system and culture around him in that precinct that enables if not supports him.

If an ER nurse has a better grasp of the law and the Constitution then you do, you shouldn't be a fucking cop. If her demonstrating to you that she has a better grasp of the law and Constitution then you do makes you snap and assault her like the limp dicked man child you are you shouldn't be a fucking cop.

Well, the nurse only went public with the video after a month because the PD and city hadn't done anything. She was/is not interested in suing, just wants better training so incidents like this wont happen again.
