Aberdeen EMS Crew Locks Itself in Ambulance During Fight

Baltimore Sun, May 1, 2013

An Aberdeen EMS crew locked itself in its ambulance Tuesday night when it arrived at a call in Perryman and encountered a large fight.

The ambulance was responding for a call of a sick woman in the 400 block of Daugherty Lane around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to Richard Gardiner of the Harford County Volunteer Fire & EMS Association and Edward Hopkins, spokesman for the Harford County Sheriff’s Office.

When they arrived, the EMS crew reported people were fighting in the road and they “locked themselves in the unit for their own safety,” Gardiner said.

After taking shelter in the ambulance, the EMS crew called 911 to report the situation, making note that items, possibly rocks, were being thrown at the ambulance.

More than 30 people were fighting outside the medic unit, according to Gardiner, and the unit was “basically surrounded with people fighting and throwing things at each other and was not safe to leave.”

So many people were in the area, he wrote in a message, that the ambulance couldn’t get out safety through the crowd without possibly hitting someone.

    There have been multiple white paramedics/EMS murdered in or near East St. Louis in the last few years.

    • trayvon marton wazzzuuuuuppp

      a white paramedic was shot near oakland two or three weeks ago by 4 blacks under 15 while he was a t redlight. they drove up shot him in the head.

      • brengunn

        And they’re surprised that the emergency services are slow to the ghetto!

        • pcmustgo

          I’ve witnessed several black patients act violent and intimidating and cursing towards nurses and doctors in inner city hospitals… and other patients too of course.

          Hospital violence is actually a big issue.

  • APaige

    Not only are blacks ungrateful for any help, but they attack those trying to help.
    I figured they attacked the ambulance because they have difficulty actually pronouncing the word.

    • The__Bobster

      In the aftermath of Katrina, they shot at the rescue helicopters.

    • “Somebody call de ‘amberlamps!'”

    • eddie murphy

      My friend quit as a paramedic because the black overdoses he would resuscitate would curse and attack him saying he “messed up they HIGH.”

      • brengunn

        Even when you wake white junkies they can be a bit snarly, I have personal experience of this myself.

      • Nathanwartooth

        My ex-friend attacked the paramedics who revived him out of an overdose. He is not a violent person at all.

        I’m guessing that Naloxone (the stuff they give you when you overdose) makes you do crazy things at first.

        They dropped the charges for him attacking them, supposedly it’s common.

        • dogbone

          Was it an accident that he took the drugs in the first place?

          • Nathanwartooth

            Nope. He hadn’t done any heroin in a while and took too big of a dose.

          • me

            And we’re supposed to care about this WHY??

          • Nathanwartooth

            I was asked and I answered. No need to get all crazy about it.

        • gemjunior

          It’s very painful to be given this drug and usually horribly uncomfortable for the opiate addict because it is putting them into immediate withdrawal, which is what they most fear. It could be a little more bearable if it was not drawn right out of the ampule and jammed into the patient’s vein, such as put in a 10ml syringe with some saline and given a little more slowly. But when they are not breathing and blue, who cares about whether they enjoy the experience or not?

        • If your friend is truly ” not a violent person “…why is he your ex-friend ?

          • Nathanwartooth

            Because when he was a hardcore junkie he stole about 80 dollars worth of stuff from me. It’s not the value of the items, it’s the principle.

            If someone steals a nickle from me, that is it. I will no longer speak to them.

          • Nathanwartooth,
            Thanks for the explaination.

          • Nathanwartooth

            Ask, and you shall receive. 🙂

    • You can bet that they don’t pay the bill……

      • GeneticsareDestiny

        The vast majority of blacks are on either Medicaid, Medicare, or are getting insurance through their government make-work job.

        A small number (those too stupid to figure out how to apply for Medicaid) are uninsured and can’t/won’t pay the bill.

        No matter what, whitey’s paying for it.

        • pcmustgo

          Talk about insurance fraud. I’ve twice got bills in the mail claiming I owe someone for some ambulance or hospital stay I never used…

          I figure someone just uses my name when the hospital asks them for the bill.

          • pcmustgo

            I’ve heard Blacks and other ghetto folk use ambulances unnecessarily too for stupid things… like getting a cold or something.

          • GeneticsareDestiny

            Yes, they do. A little black kid could scrape his knee playing outside and his mother will call an ambulance. They are completely incapable of comprehending that ambulances cost money and that that money has to be paid by someone (ultimately, by whitey, because blacks never pay).

          • I believe at one time they were too ignorant to understand the cost of things and the unfairness of someone else being forced to pay for them. I said at one time, now they know damn well what they are doing. They know that the white citizens pay the majority of taxes and the burden therefore falls on us. They take delight in causing us that pain. Just yesterday my wife was in line at a grocery store’s deli. A black women was being given samples of sliced meat. My wife said she at least took a dozen full size slices before declaring she would think about it and walked away w/o buying anything. The first thing I thought and my wife said the same, the black women was eating a free meal. She had no concern that free food was paid for by the store and ultimately by the shoppers. Not one damn concern whatsoever.

    Too bad you can’t wall these places off, send in drone cameras and watch the latest version of “The Hunger Games” or “Mad Max”. It would make for great reality TV.

    A buddy of mine from high school who was an EMT once said: “90% of my job is interfering with natural selection”.

    • The__Bobster

      In most cities, the cameras are already there. Just toss in a watermelon and start the video feed.

      • dogbone

        Have you ever heard about greased pigs? They should grease up a plasma TV.

    • brengunn

      It would make for great reality TV.

      I know that somewhere inside me is a savage because I would love to watch such a show. I think, even in such times as these, it would be popular. Current television shows are nothing but endless bouts of meaningless jeopardy, safe jeopardy and false jeopardy, where nothing is ever lost. What would people give to see the ultimate jeopardy, loss of life, live on television. Or maybe I’m a sociopath!

  • The__Bobster

    I didn’t realize that an amble-lamps had to be bulletproof.

    Deputize and arm EMS personnel, with a shoot to kill directive when they encounter mob violence that threatens them. Or better yet, cut off EMS service to any areas where paramedics are threatened.

    • Old Soldier

      I remember 30 years ago in Chicongo there was a big todo because EMT’s routinely refused to respond in the Projecks without a police escort for them and a guard for their bambulants while they were away from it. That’s when Mayor Jane Byrne moved into Cabrini Green to show everyone that it was perfectly safe, as long as you have 6 armed, taxpayer funded bodyguards.

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      As soon as we did that, EMS service would be immediately cut off to every area with a substantial black population. Then the NAACP and Eric “My People” Holder would get involved and say that the policy was “racist” and “discriminatory”.

      Still, it would be great, and would save money in more ways than one. Less ambulances would have to be sent out, saving money for the taxpayer, and less blacks would be saved after getting stabbed at a drug deal, preventing them from later going to prison on the white man’s dime.

      • bigone4u

        A decent federal government would declare many black areas “combat zones.” And then send in the military.

        • me

          Like the Dept. Of Home Laaand In-Securities? That’s being saved for the BIG MONEY CRASH and the Whiteys….

          • me

            And cities like Boston….

      • edie

        this situation is simply a microcosm of the black problem.

        we go through this thousands of times daily, in hundreds of communities.

    “The patient for whom the ambulance had been dispatched was uncooperative and would not speak to police.”

    “Hey, no problem lady. You have the absolute right to DIE where you stand. c ya, wouldn’t wanna b ya.”

    • whiteuncleruckus

      I’m all for letting her die, but white liberal lawyers will sue them if they don’t try to save them. White liberal race traitors are more dangerous than diversity itself.

    If Islam takes over AberDEEN it looks like they wont need to change the name of the city….

  • Rhialto

    Historical note: Around 1960, I know from personal contacts that medical personel were safe in criminalized back neighborhoods in at least 2 major eastern cities. Public health nurses giving home care to needy blacks were safe because the local thugs protected them. The same was true for EMS technicians.

    These were areas that even then police always went in pairs for protection. Perhaps the social scientists should investigate this change in Afro-Social behavior.

    • me

      It’s called de-evolution. There, I saved millions of dollars in grant money for the study of the ‘Negro problem’.

  • HadEnough

    So the moolies jeopardize the life of one of their own by behaving too badly to let her rescue ambulance through? Truly, I ask you, has there ever been any living creature as dimwitted as the American Negro?

      Yeah, their white girlfriends.

    Just youths getting a little rowdy to blow off some steam.

  • Joe Sewell

    I’m not familiar with Baltimore Metro but I’m thinking the area in question was probably a White neighborhood before the ‘unfair housing act’ of the ’60s.

    • tgb

      You are absolutely correct, it’s the neighborhood Cal Ripken grew up in

  • The patient for whom the ambulance had been dispatched was uncooperative and would not speak to police.


    Why I’m not surprised …..

  • me

    Let the Black communities organize their own ‘amber lamps’ and fire departments, pay for them out of their own pockets, and provide Black EMTs and firefighters….HaHa! They can’t, or won’t…so, screw ’em! Let the chips fall where they may, and let the actions reap the consequences. Why are Whites funding this dysfunction with blood, sweat, and tears? Enough is enough!

  • LaSantaHermandad

    The next step is to train and arm paramedics. These people risk their lives every day to save people and when in “dah Hoot”, they need to be able to save themselves.

    SOMEONE NEEDS to start shooting back!

    what a bunch of wusses
