Wow...this trooper is out of control.

Where does he get off thinking he can raise his voice at, and brow beat a United States citizen? What type of leadership does he have to look to as role models? He is aware he is being recorded, yet he still believes this type of demeanor is acceptable? Why?

This encounter depicts the attitude of many in law enforcement who have forgotten their job is to serve the public, not molest and abuse them with an unprofessional attitude. One can only imagine how he reacts when confronting a real criminal.

Law enforcement officials with this type of mentality and attitude are the primary reason many people hold the police in low regard...and why people are reluctant to come forward and help the police solve crimes. I am guessing this trooper's list of snitches is non existant...and with his attitude, I am sure he does not care about recruiting people who may be able to help the police and community when the time arises. Would you trust and want to assist a cop with this trooper's attitude?

Sadly, for a variety of reason, many officers feel the need to insulate themselves from the rest of society. Which explains why many LEO's live, work and socialize in their own exclusive little worlds, much like the gangsters and families depicted in the movie Goodfellas. Keeping their dirty little secrets amongst their own kind.

AFAIAC, this trooper needs to be removed from the public payroll. I am sure there are plenty of adults available who are qualified to deal with the public in a mature, professional manner.

This trooper is not one of them.

The trooper should not be removed from payroll. He made a mistake by losing his temper, but at the same time the driver should not have flipped the bird to the trooper nor ran the ambulance with no lights, because any law enforcement is allowed by law to pull over an ambulance if no lights are running. This trooper just recently came back from a tour in Iraq. Yes, he seems stressed and trained to be a bit aggressive, but at the same time, all citizens SHOULD abide by an officers commands to start with and none of these kinds of incidents would occur.

Agreed...Parmedic Martin was off base for interfering with Trooper Martin's investigation.

Yet in this circumstance the trooper had no lawful right to order the paramedic to step back inside the ambulance. Though the trooper did have a lawful right to advise the paramedic not to interfere with his investigation and to remove himself from the roadway.

Regardless, this was not a typical car stop. The people involved are professionals and should have acted as professionals.

I was wrong for suggesting the trooper be terminated. Though he should be disciplined, fined and placed on administrative probation until he learns to act like a professional.

If you all knew what a corrupt federal and state police state oklahoma is you would understand why this punk cop has gotten away so far without being punished. The cops have an arrogant nazi attitude and especially all the perverts and cross dressers who work for the oklahoma state bureau of narcotics. The good thing is their furher Bush is gone and they have been humbled to a certain extent even in Pukesville Edmond oklahoma.

I'm a creek Indian card holder and I voiced my concer to the Okmulgee Head office about the attendant in the back of the ambulance. He was wrong and it reflected that on our tribe I hope he doesnot get a job again to care for sick people with his past now in Tulsa for DUI. Not a role model
