    You do realize they do this to protect the ambulances? what do you think a squad car can stop a car going 70mph down the highway smashing into a cruiser, that cruiser will just smash into the ambulance and hurt even more people if not kill some, meanwhile a fire truck would just absorb a car on the path of the accident.
    I never argued..... why a firetruck would be there nick... all I said was there is more to the story then meets the eye.... Please understand that i'm not against you

    All I'm pointing out is that I have read a detailed account of what happened. Hell, I have even read the Fire Chiefs response to the incident (hes really pissed) and the chief of police (who isn't too happy either) about what occurred.

    The last I read about what happened to the cop is that he is facing disciplinary action.

    The most ironic part about this story was that engine was there to shield the cops too from oncoming traffic to boot.

    I don't think there is anything more to it than this:

    Cop: Move the truck

    Firefighter: I cant

    Cop: Get in the ****ing truck and move it NOW..

    Firefighter: NO

    Cop: (cuffs come out) Now you're going to jail....

    It's pretty simple - I have seen that "talk" thousands of times and have even been arrested for questioning a cop. That that is usually how cops work.... "do what the **** I tell you to do or you're going to jail" -- You see that's why these punk cops don't like to be filmed - because they usually arrest people for no reason at all.

    You keep saying all this, and I'm not doubting you read it somewhere. How about letting the rest of us read it for ourselves. Screw the Fire Chief, he's sticking up for his own, the thin red line if you will. I've seen no pictures of the scene other than what the filmed report shows. The danger of oncoming traffic may have been non-existent by the time the firefighter was asked to move his truck by the officer.

    Lets just use simple logic here. Why the hell would a fireman refuse to move his truck if there was no danger involved for no reason?

    It's quite obvious the fireman was just trying to help and the cop just wanted to assert his "power" by deciding himself there was no danger present.

    But like I also said the fireman didn't even have permission to move the truck and before he could even get the permission he was arrested or rather detained for 30 minutes.

    Hell, If I was the fireman you know what I would have said? Sure, I'll move the ****ing truck but if anyone here gets further hurt, or dies because some drunken fool plows into this ambulance and these victims - its all on you buddy.

    I don't want to talk about this story anymore.... It's boring and I want to talk about something less remedial than this.

    So as they say on "Shark Tank": "I'm Out!"

    How can the officer possibly justify this action?
    The police officer may well have a different spin of the "He said, she said, and who said "no" first and why" story than the fire fighter. This could well have been a mutual respect / disrespect macho thing.

    It would be ironic if the firefighter was on his way to stifle a raging fire...engulfing the police station...
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    All evidence points to the officer being at fault, so I highly doubt that.
