Embarrassment for law officers Nationwide!

This is a letter I sent to officials in Oklahoma, I'm disgusted by the unprofessional conduct of this power hungry "officer" of the OHP!

Dear Chief:

I have been compelled to write to you as a fellow public service official, a California Firefighter/EMT-D and Emergency Room Patient Care Technician for two (2) hospitals. The incident that took place between your officer Martin and EMT-P White in Paden, OK on the 24th of May 2009 in NOT ONLY completely unprofessional and a disgrace to law enforcement officers nationwide and from my review of your State website, is not what your organization states it promotes or holds as it's core values.

It will sure be interesting to see what the outcome is for this individual of the OHP. Hundreds of firefighters, EMS personnel including peace officers from various law enforcement agencies from around the country all agree that Officer Martin should be disciplined (not a traditional slap on the wrist) and possibly terminated for his unprofessional conduct NOT only towards the EMT-P but the COMPLETE DISREGARD for patient safety and Public Safety at the scene of his Power Trip!

I also forwarded this email to Governor Brad Henry and to Kevin Ward, Secretary of Safety and Security and the Commissioner of the Department of Public Safety.

With deep regret,

Clayton "CJ" Boyer

I totally agree with CJ's letter. Officer Martin was definately OUT OF LINE!! and should be terminated. We don't need law enforcement officer's that show this type of disregard for PUBLIC SAFETY! What would happen if the patient in the ambulance had DIED as a result of this incident?

This type of behavior is totally unexceptable for law enforcement officials.

Who is Officer Martin related to that he can get away with this type of behavior?

Lets wait to see results before we react, we all have individuals who would be best employed else where and I'm sure he soon will be

Nice letter, although I'll bet the Oklahoma HP Chief has gotten overwhelmed with calls and letters about this!

Lutan, you've got to see the video!
