EMT Reveals the MASSIVE Failures That Took Place During the Stoneman Shooting
Every day, there's news about the government response to the Florida shooting that makes me stabby. There seems to be nothing the government didn't drop the ball on (see Student Blasts Resource Officer Who Cowered During Parkland Shooting and Report: Police Called to Parkland Shooter’s Home 39 Times).
Apparently, we can add the emergency medical response to the list as well.
An EMT spoke to Miami reporter, Brian Entin, anonymously about his experience on the scene. The way he was prevented from doing his job is alarming.

There's an important distinction to be made here. It's not that medical resources simply weren't available for the victims. Clearly, there were medical staff on the scene and ready for action. They were hindered by what we can assume was human error. According to this EMT, he was ASKING to go in, but wasn't allowed.
There need to be firings. Lots of them.
