wow...just like tv...
memo to EMS employees...remove keys from ignition while ambulance is parked...
EMTs suffered a major lapse in judgment. The local gentry will usually swarm an open and unattended ambulance, and will empty it of all “pharmaceuticals” and accessories in minutes.
It is a sad day in America when EMS workers would have to do that.
I understand why they would leave them in. It is an emergency and the last thing they need to do is loose the keys.
I hope this woman is punished harshly to discourage others but I doubt it. She could have killed someone not just the person who need to go to the hospital.
Um, they still ended up “losing” the keys...
Tell people that silly religious superstitions like "Thou shalt not kill" and "Thou shalt not steal" are no longer operative, and see where it gets you.
Well with Izlam trying to take over it will be
Thou shall not steal or we cut off your hands
Thou shall not kill unless it is the infidel.
