Why Did a State Trooper Try to Stop Medics From Performing CPR on Heather Heyer?

Why Did a State Trooper Try to Stop Medics From Performing CPR on Heather Heyer? [Because: The Deep State needed a martyr to foment hate and anger against Trump, so when he's removed in a coup, most people won't 'object.'] | 15 Aug 2017 | As a queer, non-binary, anarchist, critical care RN/street medic who was the first responder for Heather Heyer, initiating CPR and, with a team of amazing bystanders, facilitating resuscitation until EMS arrived, I feel a compelling need to tell our story. When we heard the car crash into our march, I was about 20 feet away from Heather, and I responded immediately to the screams for medics...I was horrified to discover, after two minutes of intense, exhausting chest compressions, that a state trooper had forcibly removed the EMT assisting me in resuscitation, as well as other bystanders ready in line for the next round of compressions. The EMT told the state trooper that we were actively resuscitating a patient, but the state trooper physically removed him from the scene anyway. I had to yell for other bystanders to come assist with compressions, and two people courageously responded, despite the threats of the state trooper. The state trooper then began yelling at me to leave my patient...He continued yelling at me to leave, and would not back down until I screamed that I'm a critical care nurse, I do CPR frequently, we have a patient without a pulse or respirations, and we will NOT stop CPR. He then began screaming that I could stay, but the other bystanders assisting CPR had to leave (they didn't), and he did not stop until a firefighter arrived and took over chest compressions.

Sandy Hook Parents Want to See Evidence

Newtown schools officials and teachers who were in the Newtown school on Dec. 14, 2012, when Adam Lanza [allegedly] killed 26 people, including 20 first-graders, have testified in depositions that each classroom had an emergency kit including a card that contained a spare key to lock the classroom door...In his motion seeking access to the state police evidence, attorney Devin W. Janosov notes that even though evidence logs show that police did recover plastic red emergency response folders from the back of [substitute teacher] Lauren Rousseau's and Victoria Soto's classrooms they don't indicate any keys were found in them...Janosov argues that it is necessary to physically inspect the evidence to see if keys are in the folders.
