Yup

A black guy lies unconscious on the ground after being choked unconscious by a police officer after being accused of selling cigarettes for 50 cents.  EMTs are called. They do nothing. They don't apply oxygen, a monitor, anything. Everybody throws him onto a cart. The ambulance leaves.

He dies. He dies because he was choked. He also died because EMTs failed to do their job. They assumed he was a low life probably faking it. They didn't care.

Thank you for noticing that! I was shocked that he was in distress, then unresponsive, and there was NO attempt to resuscitate him! They just threw him on a stretcher! If someone had had the sense to start CPR/ACLS the poor guy might still be here. Disgusting.

I remember working with a new paramedic who I learned (long after the fact) rolled up on a motor vehicle accident and found the driver (an elderly woman) unresponsive and without vital signs. It was a traumatic arrest, happening only minutes before. He failed to "work the code" because "she was dead." Sometimes ignorance prevails regardless of the other considerations that we, as armchair quarterbacks, may view later. Sad.
