For conservatives, backing the blue comes has come naturally. We inherently believe in good and evil, which trickles down into striving for a just society that centers around law and order. Police aren’t perfect, but their flaws outweigh the indecency inflicted upon the rest of us by the scum of the earth.
For this reason, watching the George Floyd Riots wreak untold havoc and carnage across our nation induced a visceral response of horror and anger. How could the police stand by? How could they kneel with anarchists? Everything we knew to be true about good and evil, law and order was ignored and recklessly discouraged.
Suffice to say, this paradigm has been shifted radically in recent times. The non-response from Uvalde police officers as a madman murdered a classroom of children and teachers is sickening. As more videos come out, we see them causally laughing, scrolling their phones, and milling around. What we don’t see is an attempted rescue.
If what happened in Uvalde is criminal neglect, then what happened in New York City is truly head scratching. In a just-released video, we see one officer manhandle and drag away a emergency medical technician who is trying to deliver a patient from the ambulance to the hospital. Making the entire situation more confusing is the fact that this was predicated over a simple door ding.
It’s truly bizarre.
“A @RochesterNYPD investigator parked his car in the ambulance bay at Strong, an EMT from @MonroeAmbNY hit the door while unloading a patient,” Lewke tweeted, sharing video of the officer approaching the EMT inside the hospital. “The investigator insisted on ID, the EMT insisted on bringing the patient inside. This is exclusive video of what happened next.”

In a subsequent tweet, the same journalist noted that:
Regarding the video in prior tweets: The officer has been placed on desk duty while RPD conducts an internal investigation. The EMT was released from the handcuffs when a supervisor arrived and was not charged or ticketed,” she added in a subsequent tweet.
The Daily Wire reported that the response from the Rochester, New York police chief was swift.
“Rochester Police Chief David M. Smith released a statement on the incident, saying in part, “I have high expectations for all members of the Rochester Police Department. Obviously, this incident is deeply concerning to me. As a result of this interaction at Strong Hospital, I have directed our Professional Standards Section to initiate an internal investigation.
Smith went on to confirm that the officer involved had been reassigned to administrative duties pending the outcome of that investigation, adding, “As chief, I demand the members of the Rochester Police Department perform their duties in a professional manner. And as such, we must hold ourselves to a higher standard of accountability.””
