Thanks Talisman, in reference to your introductory phrase "agitated violent offenders", in direct reference to this case, apparently you are in possession of information about this specific incident that is not currently in the "public arena". Could you please let us know more about your source, and where/how we can perhaps corroborate your information?

GG.

Incidents in Australia have caused ambulance and paramedic personnel to demand action be taken against those assaulting health professionals in the street, in ambulances and hospitals. Most if not all are in states of extreme agitation and paranoia. Even their companions are violently attacking professionals going to the aid of seriously distressed patients. This has been and is still being covered by media in Australia on an almost daily basis.

Last year alone in New South Wales 174 paramedics were assaulted. Some with a variety of weapons, knives, bats, broken bottles etc. Many of these miscreants were in obviously agitated states due to drink, drugs and a combination of both. It takes no medical experience to know (and I have blood pressures monitors at home as well as being monitored in hospital and having my blood pressure soar in reaction to pain and trauma.)

The internet is there, wont quote sources but the above was in a report on violence in the Sydney Morning Herald. The figures of traumatised attacks on police, paramedics, hospital personnel are well documented.

I don't suspect that physical reaction to traumatic incidents is confined to Australia but I am taking examples here in context of what I previously mentioned.

Was just reading about the ex English footballer who was killed by one of these weapons at the hands of the police. Disgraceful that they should be being used!! mad.gif
