Portland Fire Chief-A Portrait In Courage

The’re at it again in Portland.  After all the demonstrations and riots after the presidential election the little snowflakes represented by a group of pampered pansies claimed that during the protests one of their members was hurt and it took too long for medical attention.  The protester probably got a “butthurt” from seeing the Portland police in riot gear.  (see cop’s perspective, 2/23/17)

The fire chief, after much chin rubbing and reading his tea leaves decided to embed EMT’s with the police during any future protests.  That way they would be able to get to an injured party quicker.  Prior to this fire and EMT units were placed several blocks away from the activity.portland-inauguration-protest-2

Sounds good and makes sense.  Hey wait just a minute.

The same group that griped about EMT’s tepid response continued to whine about EMT’s wearing riot gear and being located within the police ranks.  What.

The same group that wanted a faster response time is now complaining about the EMT’s being with the police.  Said …”it shows that they are with the police and not the fire department.”

Caving to the pressure group the chief took the EMT’s out of the police deployments during pending unrest.

Couple questions pop up here.

  1.  Do the crybabies want a quick medical response?
  2.  Do the crybabies not want the EMT’s embedded with the police?
  3.  Just what in the hell do these fools want?

Apparently they want a quick response without the EMT’s being close to the medical issue.

Whatcha gonna do chief, whatcha gonna do?
