OK; maybe I'll go back to being suspicious that the ones trying to get the sample were hoping that the person who their actions helped get killed had also been drunk, and could therefore shoulder some of the blame.


-- most of the blame, of course, belongs on the reckless driver who directly caused the accident. But, if the police were chasing that person in a manner against police policy -- well, AIUI that's one of the reasons why such chases often are against policy.

I want to know that the reasons for the firing included not only the improper arrest but the way it was carried out, which was also insane. It seems that way but it is very unclear.

Default Utah nurse reaches $500,000 settlement in dispute over her arrest

University Hospital nurse Alex Wubbels has agreed to a $500,000 payment to settle a dispute over her arrest by a Salt Lake City police officer after she barred him from drawing blood from an unconscious patient, her attorney said Tuesday.

The part about her donating to help people who want to obtain body cam footage of themselves is enlightening. I didn’t know it would cost you money to do that.

Good for her, and good on her for helping out others. As far as paying for footage, I think the police officially charge for their costs on retrieving the data. How many police forces use that as a way to charge a lot in order to either make some cash or to restrict access, I dunno.
