TO: Oklahoma Highway Patrol Chief Van M. Guillotte FROM: Theo Karantsalis, Librarian Date: Sunday, June 14, 2009 The Oklahoma Department of Public Safety released a dash cam video that shows Oklahoma Highway Patrolman Daniel Martin scuffling with EMT Maurice White on May 24. If you haven't seen the video, you can watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watchv=1fLO6f8M_gM Trooper Martin was speeding – with his sirens on -- but there was no emergency. He placed EMT White in a choke hold, threatened him with arrest, and put a patient who was being rushed to the hospital in danger. According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol's Web site, the OHP's mission is "working to provide a safe, secure environment for the public through courteous, quality and professional services." The mission says that the OHP is committed to the following core values: loyalty, honesty, respect, integrity, professionalism and self-discipline. Chief Guillotte, in your personal statement, you said that we should contact you if you can ever be of service. You can. Please fire Trooper Daniel Martin. Sincerely, Theo Karantsalis Miami, Fla. miami_librarian@yahoo.com Note: In the links section of this petition (on the right), you will find other related videos, documents and contact information.

    Law Enforcement in this country has gotten out of control. This guy is just a bully, he's one of those people who has so little power in this world, that the little he does have he exploits and acts in a criminal way.

    I'm appauled at his gross misuse of power. He should absolutely be mortified personally, and be striped of all professional authority. Even beyond concerns surrounding his ability to exercise self-control, I would expect that his management is scrutinizing his prioritization of the EMS's 'failure to yeild' over the well-being of the person in need of emergency care. Please Do Not let this man's actions define the Lack of limits and/or discipline.
