Quote

At one point, Payne threatens to take Wubbels to jail if he doesn’t get the sample, and he accuses her of interfering with a criminal case.

“I either go away with blood in vials or body in tow,” Payne says.

After Wubbels consults with several hospital officials and repeats the policy, Payne tells her she is under arrest and grabs her, pulling her arms behind her back and handcuffing her. The footage shows the detective dragging Wubbels out of the hospital and putting her inside a patrol car as she screams, “Help! Help! Somebody help me! Stop! Stop! I did nothing wrong!”

You're still in danger from police even if you didn't commit a crime. Many people find this out the hard way.

This is on the front page of the Salt Late Tribune. It's also in the Washington Post.

I agree that most of Calamari's links are horrible, but this one is legit.

The officer wanted to draw blood illegally; the Supreme Court issued judgement this exact issue last year. The hospital knew the law, and the officer's supervisor demanded that they step aside. The officer got upset then arrested the nurse. 

The officer that did this and his supervisor need serious disciplinary action. The nurse is handling it really well; she's not pushing the legal action angle until after the department has chance to make this situation right.

I'm not a big fan of the Sue everybody stuff...but this lady should.  And shame on those other officers who stood by and let this guy arrest/mug her.

It happened over a month ago. Where was the outrage then.??

These sites digging around for months looking for these stories only adds confusion. Like this happened yesterday.

The video was just obtained by the Tribune from the police department. If a month passes until a department releases the footage, does that mean the incident didn't happen?

Good lord, what the heck is wrong with you?  Nobody dug around for months.  Read an article once in a while.  There was a press conference YESTERDAY, that's why it's in the news.

Okay, so now we're at level two.

Not okay to make a big deal about it a month later because:

1) Police footage wasn't immediately released

2) Bystanders weren't recording with cell phones

 

Any more unreasonable standards that need to be met here?

Agreed. The officer expressly attempted to intimidate her into violating the law.

the stevez trolling is intended only to derail the thread. Obviously this topic has struck a nerve.

Who cares.  You've said multiple times about digging for months for these things.  It was a press conference yesterday.  Good lord.  Read the article before you go off.

If no one speaks up when these thug cops shoot black people in the back they will then become emboldened to do it to white people.

You'll find that tactic is employed in various internet message boards, on Facebook and other social media outlets. It's as if certain folks have received a manifesto on how to handle what they deem adversarial.

Unlawful and unnecessary arrest.

Agreed.  Previous legal rulings define this. Cops should have to obey the law like everybody else.

And hopefully the officer will be disciplined and the nurse exonerated.

The nurse knew the law, apparently the cops did not. This is ridiculous, bully with a badge.

Hopefully his boss is like Chief Register, no nonsense.

Released and no charges filed... duh!  Next move is to hire an attorney and an accountant.

According to the linked story, his boss is the one that instructed him to arrest her.
