Oklahoma EMT sues lying cop



The paramedic who was placed in a choke hold by an Oklahoma State Trooper while a patient lingered in the back of an ambulance has filed a lawsuit.

Maurice White Jr. filed the suit in federal court today, claiming his civil rights were violated by Trooper Daniel Martin.

Martin said he pulled the paramedics over because the driver refused to yield for him when he sped by with his lights and sirens wailing. Martin also claims that the driver of the ambulance, Paul Franks, made an obscene gesture to him as he drove by.

But Martin also claims that White assaulted him when he stepped out of the ambulance after being pulled over, which proved to be a lie once the dash cam video was released.

The only thing that is certain is that Martin placed White in a choke hold even though White did not physically provoke him, an incident which was caught on video by the son of the patient in the ambulance.

White, who only listed Martin as a defendant in his suit, is asking for more than $10,000 in damages.

Meanwhile, Martin remains on administrative leave. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said it has concluded its internal investigation into the matter, but have yet to release its findings.

But White is not holding his breath.

“Mr. White does not think the state will take responsibility for the actions of trooper Martin, and will thus take matters into his own hands,” said Richard O’Carroll, White’s attorney. “Mr. White therefore asked that we conduct an aggressive discovery into the past behavior of trooper Martin … and find out how he ended up an employee of the state.

“We’ve waited long enough.”

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
