Some Corrections on OHP vs. Creek Nation EMS

From STATter911.

At 2:22 Daniel Martin states, I’m going to give you a ticket for failure to yield and when I go by you saying, “What’s going on,” You don’t need to give me no hand gestures, now. I ain’t going to put up with that ____. You understand me?

I missed that inconsistency, but 5150 Wife pointed that out in the comments on a post by Medic(Three).

It is also interesting that he addresses Paul Franks as Paul, twice, but when he addresses Maurice White Jr. it is as Buddy. Paul Franks has not introduced himself to Daniel Martin, but Maurice White, Jr. has introduced himself.

At about 4:15 it seems that Daniel Martin is allowing EMS to go to the hospital, but he is also calling for back up Code 3 at his current location, not at the hospital. When Daniel Martin finishes calling for back up, at 4:50, he states No you can’t go right now.

In an earlier post, I wrote that Daniel Martin did not leave the car at his original call, but between 1:18 and 1:34 there are some sounds and camera movements consistent with the car door opening and closing a couple of times. Since he has a body microphone, his voice may be audible, while someone farther away telling him he is cancelled, might not be audible. Therefore, I apologize for my statement that Daniel Martin was not doing a good job of backing up the police calling for assistance. I misinterpreted what was going on in the video.
