  1. Unfortunately our “Day Without Immigrants” didn’t mean a “Day Without Immigrant Crime” did it?

    As we sit here in our Paramedic unit tonight listening to the police scanner, the CHP is out on 2 simultaneous high-speed pursuits – chasing “Hispanic males.”
    Innocent 911 victims all over our cities are begging for police to come save them from garbage behavior. Again, “Hispanic males” are running roughshod because that’s there idea of Saturday night entertainment.

    And excellent American heroes in uniform are killed because they have the nerve to take a stand between the citizenry and garbage.

    Paramedics all over L.A., Orange County, Victorville and the Inland Empire tonight are running non-stop to domestic violence, stabbings, gunshot victims and pedestrians being run-down by urban gorillas who respect no laws whatsoever.
    The overwhelming majority are Hispanic, and by God they demand their “rights” to be treated at law-abiding tax payer expense.

    If you happen to be a law-abiding citizen with a heart attack, difficulty breathing or a pregnant family member – good luck getting either an ambulance or an ER bed as quick as you need one: the ERs & rescue teams are busy taking care of idiots who roll their cars, and bleeding gang members who in a righteous society would be allowed to bleed to death.

    One of the reasons YOUR EMS care takes a back seat is a seriously ugly fact that you will NEVER hear the media question: Why has the state of California had 83 Emergency Rooms close over the last 25 years?

    You might want to go back and look at that number again. The immigrant bloating of our cities is absolutely gutting EMS systems. 83 ERs – doors closed. Do yourselves a favor: read up as to why this happened.

    “A Day Without Immigrants” is a farce – because nobody is banning the well-behaved who have a right to be here.

    “A Day Without Immigrant Crime” would be too refreshing for words. Trust me: Nobody in the world of EMS or law enforcement is holding their breath for that wonderful day, because every single day is a knife, car crash and gunfire blood bath, where little kids get shot in their own living rooms by gangster-garbage in cars.

    And great cops are gunned down by gutter-scum.

    Until the protesters spend a 24-hour ride-along shift with an EMS team or a police officer, they have absolutely no idea how much damage to this society, this disgusting influx of users & abusers are causing. At least, until their street-filth behavior kills one of YOURS.

    As my Paramedic partner likes to say every time we pull up to a knifing, a shooting or our countless thousands of pedestrian hit & runs:

    “When did our ambulance make a left turn into the Twilight Zone?”

    May the Lord bless Keith Boyer and his family.
