    San Diego cops are losing their minds. I saw two of them harassing people for J-walking downtown last week.

    If I was the firefighter, I`d find out his home address and post it round the department. Good luck in a fire, officer plod

    For crying out loud! What`s wrong with these fire-fighters? think they own the road do they? people have places to go! Their dinner could be getting cold!
    Huh, firefighters and their `life-saving`. etc.

    Firefighters are there to block traffic, since most officer involved injuries are from traffic next to an accident. But, California`s new thing is to clear up the lanes ASAP. "Minor accident? pull to side of road." Since traffic in Socal is SO bad, I can understand the officer in asking, but to do this?

    Dude, if you are harassing rescue crews, while there`s not zero traffic flow, rather than additionally defending the incident zone, you can`t be more useless.

    You people obviously only looked at the preview picture and not the whole video. The vehicle involved in the accident was in the middle between two barriers. There was no reason for the truck to be parked diagonally and taking up two lanes of traffic.

    @ZaptheSheep - You obviously have never worked an accident scene. Try doing a couple and get back to me.

    If the firetruck should be diagonal. If not & the firemen need any equipment they have to stand in the lane of oncoming traffic to get to it. A diagonal park gives them a safety zone as well as creating a larger profile to make sure they are seen from a distance so people slow down.

    I think the most important detail is that two other firefighters moved their trucks when asked, but this one refused. The problem isn`t arresting the firefighter who refused to comply, it was ordering the firefighters to move their trucks in the first place instead of, you know, doing your job to help the accident victims.

    Sure am glad half of the volunteers at my local departments are law enforcement officers.

    Oh hey look at that first picture

    Anyone that thinks the cop was right has never worked traffic control during an incident. That poo is scary and is the only time I ever felt like I was truly in danger. Every extra foot of buffer you can get to work with is a welcome thing.

    Do the Police not know that protecting YOURSELF is the first part of any emergency response. As a firefighter in Australia, I would put my vehicle where myself and the crew are protected, stuff the delay for the public. We are trying to save a life. The longer that takes, the worse it is for the victim. The cop should be sacked. It is a scene of an accident, their job is simple, direct the traffic away from us, so we can do our job !

    Unbelievable. Obviously, that CHP officer would fail a simple IQ test. But hey, never mind about those injured people. Move your truck! Because I say so, that`s why. Respect my authority!

    00:50 "before this dispute CHP has threatened to arrest other area firefighters" for the same reason.

    02:13 "This isn`t the first time a firefighter has been detained."

    02:30 "This isn`t the first time this type of dispute has happened."

    02:54 "this is an isolated incident. . . "

    Even if the department promulgates a new policy to allow firefighters to block traffic when necessary and appropriate, a new policy doesn`t create a new culture. The police culture that causes them to believe that they can force firefighters out to clear traffic lanes is not going to change. This won`t be the last time it happens.

    @Thonius - these aren`t new policies. These are NFPA guidelines. This is the way things have been done for years to protect the patient, the workers, and the public.

    If I were the fire chief, I`d have my guys respond to a mysterious alarm at the police station complete with at least three pumper trucks and a couple of extra tankers. I`d bust in the doors, tear down the walls with fire axes, flood the place with water, and top it off with a nice thick layer of foam.

    Then I`d be like...oops.
