Provide a substantive reason to believe otherwise. It is exactly what the EMS worker said and it is exactly the kind of decision an EMS captain would be responsible for making. It was you who posted comments inferring that something was odd about it. EMS techs help the living, the EMS captain had been in there and determined there were no living to help. No surprise that he told a late-coming EMS crew, called in for backup from another jurisdiction, to stand down.
“That everything becomes very quiet and narrowly focused in an ambulance when you see the police cars waiting for you at the town line, the chief of police standing in the road to quickly brief you: “This is what we got: Mass casualty, Sandy Hook Elementary School and they are screaming for ambulances. I’ve got two sharpshooters here, follow us in.” “
“The Newtown firefighter who grabbed my sleeve and told us we were headed into a shooting with “kids down,” the frightened children running away from the building as we were running toward it, passing a woman who had been shot, cresting the hill into a parking lot swarming with automatic weapons and body armor and being told to get ready, that we would be next to go into a building where 20 to 30 people, mostly children, had been shot down inside. “
“For the EMS teams staged in front of Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, that moment came when the Newtown EMS captain ordered us to stand down, that there was no one left to help, no one left alive. “
It is IDIOTIC to think that the Newtown EMS captain made that decision alone. WHO TOLD HIM/HER THERE WAS NO ONE ELSE ALIVE????
Show me ONE ..just ONE...EMS worker that went inside early on.
Do you know that an EMS CAPTAIN had a family member inside the building. A clerk in the main office. The woman was the wife of the Firechief and the mother of the EMS CAPTAIN.
THE EMS CAPTAIN did not go into the building. The Firechief did not go into the building.
Tell me EXACTLY who went into the building to try to save the lives of those that were shot?
