Police allowed to deny suspects emergency medical help


Police officers are not required to provide emergency medical aid to a suspect they shoot as a result of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision not to review an Ohio case.

A lower court ruled in the death of Jason White that officers were obliged only to call an ambulance, not to render first aid, for which they are trained. 

“If the police don’t have a duty to save lives, what are we paying them for? And who exactly do they serve if not you and me?” asked constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute.

“This case – and the Supreme Court’s refusal to hold government officials accountable to at least render emergency aid to those who have been seriously injured as a result of their interactions with police – sends the message that in the American police state, police have no duty, moral or otherwise, to help those in trouble, protect individuals from danger, or risk their own lives to save ‘we the people.’”

The case developed when Ohio police officers shot White several times then called for an ambulance while the military veteran bled to death.

Rutherford lawyers argued that if prisoners have a constitutional right to medical care under the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment, police should be held to a comparable standard.

  1. Stupid policy that can backfire on them , and should

    Don’t shit where you eat , being a public employee and acting this way as a public employee will have karma attached to it
    Let alone your total lack of humanity

    Also please notice the word used … suspect . , not proven guilty

    1. Yeah, is this not a sure sign of humanity losing its humanness, the innate quality that rises up within us to offer assistance to a fellow human? Are these not the new robot-creatures who only follow orders. I see this as severe mental illness, a result of external tampering from those who would dehumanize us.

      We need 7 billion t-shirts that say,

      STAY HUMAN!!

      Btw, stay human.


      1. Why dont they just replace these pigs with robots, same thing. Heartless pieces of sht that they have to pay. Everyday they are more like them ,95% corrupt as humans.

        1. They’re workin’ on it, Mark, overtime, even on Sunday nights. Remember when Sunday’s were for us, totally for humans to be humans? Every day should be Sunday, even when we’re working. But they make every day slave day. Slave Robot Day. A good thing Trenchers are immune. In that Trench lives the hope of humanity. “No retreat, no surrender.”
