EMTs are not trained police or military. They do not have the skills necessary to deal with violent situations. If they enter a dangerous area, they will only increase the problem by getting injured or interrupting the law enforcement's ability to respond. How is this going to help an injured person? The injured party would only be in more danger should there be additional violence or if they have to wait for a second ambulance to respond because the first EMT is down. The EMTs do not carry weapons or tactical gear for such events. Violence should be handled by trained professionals with the proper equipment, not civilians. People need to use common sense and not rely on emotions or sensationalizing it for votes.
