Cops Are Telling Paramedics To Inject Arrestees With Ketamine. Worse, EMS Crews Are Actually Doing It.

quote [ Body camera footage from one case showed a woman, after being Maced by police, asking for an asthma pump, the draft report said.

Instead, a paramedic gave her an injection of ketamine.

“If she was having an asthma attack, giving ketamine actually helps patients and we’re doing a study for agitation anyway so I had to give her ketamine,” the unnamed paramedic told a police officer, according to the report. ]

Allowing police to "prescribe" sedatives to compliant people already in custody is problematic enough. Not captured in the title however, is that ems teams are automatically using the cops arrest as assumed consent for a study on the drug, even if they requested another medical option.

I would love to see them try this shit on me.

I had a 4g/day habit for about 2 years. To this day, I can still sniff a tenth of either both racemic mixed or the S + or - salt without much effect. The R enantiomer doesn't do shit for me

Seems legit.

Hey Fish, if you ever want to eat a tenth of some real decimal dust, I'll buy you one. You can verify it with the ehrlich reagent if you like.

Granted we’re still pretty far off from tonton macoutes, but maybe we’re approaching something like baronetcy? I can’t think of a term for the pedestal or class we’ve elevated police to without going back to aristocratic concepts. And pardon any misspellings, I’m having correction issues.

nothing wrong with ketamine if dosage is controlled to be honest.
source: done a lot of ketamine a long long time ago

I wet the bed when I was little, so it's fine if the cops break into your house and pee on you.

I think it would be ok only if the arrested person needed to be calmed down... imagine someone thrashing around while you're trying to get them into the ambulance and to the hospital or whatever... all i'm saying is ketamine is not a bad choice it has a lot of uses across many dosage levels.. -2cents
