    [QUOTE=ccw9mm;286357]That's a very large assumption. While half of those who matter might well see it as laudable, the other half who are aware of practical realities will understand that such a display shows a complete and utter disregard for security and what can happen when a (presumably) still-armed BG is administered first aid at the cost of dropping all tactical advantage to do so.

    I agree 100%. I was in no way suggesting that someone should render aid in this type of situation. He asked a question, and I simply provided an answer based on the general perception of the population in my geographic area.
    In this type of situation at work, I would secure - check for additional weapons - and wait for E.M.S. to provide aid. And in the best scenario, this would not begin until at least one back up officer arrived.
    Sorry if my statement confused. Your point it spot on.
    If trouble finds you, fight like the third monkey on the ramp of Noah's Arc.

    simply put, no. just because of disease. personally, call it military training. I'd rather save my efforts and equipment (providing you have any first aid whether it just be a band-aid) for some one who deserves it.

As all us EMTs, Medics, and firefighters here will tell you, providing care without the proper equipment is just not the standard of care, and is totally defensible in a court. That not counting the risk of a BG faking or just plain being not-as-injured as you think. Also hard to watch your back during a good round of CPR. Better to stay alert to look for additional threats, as well as the arriving cops so you can safely surrender the scene to them. That will secure the scene quicker and get that BG the EMS help he needs that much quicker.

    If I have to shoot him.....

    I'm certified in First-aid/CPR/AED (big deal ) but I'm not going to place myself in a compromising position to administer first-aid to someone who just tried to injure/kill me...Calling 911 is as far as I'll go.
