Some will remember this..a cop arrested a Utah nurse for protecting the rights of her patient, a severely burned truck driver, an off-duty reserve police officer from Idaho..who later died.

 

"Wubbels says she will use a portion of the money to help people get access to police body camera footage of incidents involving themselves, The Salt Lake Tribune reports. Her attorney's firm will provide free legal services for those seeking access to video. Wubbels says she also plans to donate to the Utah Nurses Association and help lead the #EndNurseAbuse campaign.

The Salt Lake City Police Department has fired an officer who handcuffed and roughly detained a nurse for refusing to allow him to draw blood from a sedated patient.

A department spokesman, Sgt. Brandon Shearer, confirmed that the officer, Detective Jeff Payne — who had been on administrative leave since the episode, which was captured by police body camera, came to national attention over the summer — was fired on Tuesday. Detective Payne’s supervisor, Lt. James Tracy, was demoted to the rank of officer.

In a disciplinary letter, the Salt Lake City police chief, Mike Brown, wrote that Detective Payne’s behavior was “inappropriate, unreasonable, unwarranted, discourteous, disrespectful,” and reflective of “extremely poor professional judgment (especially for an officer with 27 years of experience), which calls into question your ability to effectively serve the public and the department.”

“I am deeply troubled by your lack of sound professional judgment and your discourteous, disrespectful and unwarranted behavior, which unnecessarily escalated a situation that could and should have been resolved in a manner far different from the course of action you chose to pursue,” Chief Brown
