Caution: this is traumatic viewing.A police officer in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA wanted a nurse to take blood from an unconscious man – but the hospital’s policy said she could only do it with a warrant or if the patient was under arrest.
The police officer could have arrested the man to get around the rules – instead, he arrested the nurse, causing her and bystanders enormous distress:
SHAME on the Salt Lake City Police Department for arresting and assaulting this nurse. She was following policy to protect her patient. pic.twitter.com/2649WjTbwv

Coming, as it does, just after a police officer retired rather than face disciplinary proceedings for telling a woman motorist not to worry because police only shoot black people, public confidence in the police over there must be falling like a stone.
Are the idiots in US law enforcement growing bolder or more reckless because of who’s in the White House?
