"Yup. From the way that situation reads, there's no need for EMS to be involved with that patient until after the scene has been secured by the people whose job it is to do that. "

"Here, the charges of calling police officers or others unflattering names wouldn't have ever been leveled; it's not a crime to have or voice an opinion (add the name calling to physical violence, and it may come across as a "hate…"

""Never" is a mighty long time ;) Here's hoping you never get that urge! "

"No video here - I think it's for subscribers only. But the printed story says nothing about any interaction prior to the assault. I'd sure like to know more about this case. Thanks for posting. "

"FWIW, "knacker" is someone who does dead animal pickup or disposal. Or was, anyway. Also bagged/tired/etc., but I didn't think you were calling me that. Australian? I forgive you. (that was sarcasm)"

"Knackerbags? That's awesome. Android, hey? I figured something like that (see above). "

"Sorry, looks like you deleted a message there. I don't have an issue with your spelling and sentence structure necessarily, I was just having an issue figuring out what you were trying to say. Some martial arts are ineffective or pointless.…"

"Knacker? Wow, that's a... well, an archaic word. Who is the other knacker to whom you refer? I wasn't having a "dig" in order to make a point. I was quite serious about not being able to glean your intent based on your spelling…"

"Sorry, Can... Having a hard time getting through your messages. Some of it is the spelling, but some of it's the disjointed sentence construction... "...there are plenty who think they have the next big thing in safety for…"

"There are many ways to "not get hurt," I would agree. There are also many ways to cannulate a patient, though I would argue (and I'm sure you would agree) there are many more ways to do it wrong than right and finding out in the…"

"I think you're absolutely right, Dave, we're using different words to say similar things. Skip uses "escape" where I would say "defence." I think part of the issue is the liability one can infer comes with the using the…"

"I certainly didn't mean to "simplify" your meaning, Skip; I took the words you used at face value. I did say, "all" when you said, "half." I own that, and won't bother trying to explain why the error…"

Gaz Black replied to Lauren Hardcastle's discussion Medic Punched in the Face During Call
"I'm not sure about "enough," but I would agree there are programs that don't address escape properly. What I mean is, a course could address escape consistently throughout the course to the point it's focused 80% of…"

"I'm not sure where you come to the notion I think you are simple. I hope you are not, just as I hope you don't think I am simple for disagreeing with you. Or for pointing out some errors in your argument. If, after investigating incidents…"
