Police State USA: Utah Nurse Arrested for Refusing Pig’s Illegal Blood Draw Request
In recent years, we’ve witnessed a strong-armed Police State USA kill a man for selling cigarettes without the blessing of the crown, we’ve witnessed them shooting unarmed citizens without cause, and now we get to see them taking down a frightened, screaming Utah nurse who refused an illegal blood draw.
The case stinks to high heaven as yet another shameless abuse of police power in America, from top to bottom. Reuters reports:
Video of the incident from Salt Lake City police officers’ body-worn cameras showed Alex Wubbels, dressed in blue medical scrubs, consulting with colleagues before showing the waiting officers a printout of the University of Utah Hospital’s policy on providing blood samples to test for alcohol or drugs.
The patient was a truck driver who was comatose when he was brought to the hospital burns unit after a crash with a vehicle being driven by someone fleeing police, the Deseret News reported.
Wubbels explained to the officers that under the policy, which she said was agreed to by the police department, she would need a warrant, the patient’s consent or the patient would need to be under arrest.
“I‘m just trying to do what I‘m supposed to do, that’s all,” Wubbels told the officers, noting that they did not meet any of those criteria.
Wubbels was right to stand her ground and refuse to violate the 4th Amendment rights of the patient even if the pig, Detective Alex Payne told her to. Payne had no legal grounds to request the blood draw. As she informs the pig in the video:
- The patient was not under arrest
- The patient had no warrants
- The patient could not consent
Worse, this accident would have never happened if the police had not been engaged in one of their infamous high-speed chases, endangering the motoring public. In all likelihood, the trucker who Detective Payne was trying to steal blood from was totally innocent and only put into the ICU because of the irresponsibility of the wild American police force. Were they trying to cover their asses?
What’s more, when the American police force are not oppressing commoners by requesting illegal blood draws from patients who are near death, they’re acting as road pirates stealing money from motorists for minor infractions to engorge the already gargantuan US government.
I personally witnessed a ticket-writing blitz covering 4 states Friday, in which sections of I-95 and I-70 had motorists pulled over every few miles. Driving some sections of major American roads have become the equivalent of trying to navigate minefields, because ticket-happy cops are out in force generating revenue for the oppressive American government. What’s worse, thanks to Move Over (and cause a pileup) laws, motorists are forced to swerve into the passing lane to dodge the crown’s thugs in blue. This creates hazards for motorists, especially when someone is pulled over every few miles.
And President Trump just made moves to militarize this already oppressive police force last week.
There’s is mostly bad news in the outcome of this case. Wubbels doesn’t want to press charges in the incident (I’d fry the pig if it were me) and local politicians are doing what they do best, playing politics with the issue since it has created a firestorm online. Metro UK reports:
The local District Attorney Sim Gill has launched a criminal investigation and put the Salt Lake City police officer on paid leave.
Paid leave. WTF? What investigation? The video says it all. The Detective broke countless laws and infringed on the 4th Amendment rights of a truck driver the police put into the ICU with their chase. Prosecute Payne just as mercilessly as you prosecute Johns who are renting some love from willing women. When the DA sees video of a man handing a woman cash for sex, do they launch a long investigation? Or do they take him to jail and shame him on the nightly news? This “investigation” line of crap from the District Attorney is a stall tactic, meant to protect the oppressive cop (as he still gets paid with your tax money) while the storm from this public relations incident blows over.
Next time someone starts talking about Land of the Free, remember this video and countless others that have surfaced only because of vigilant citizens refusing to bow to the unjust power of the badge. As George Carlin knew, “You have owners in this country. They own you.” Freedom, my ass.
