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.

Discussion

  • Paul VanCoevering The Oklahoma Department of Public Safety can not say Daniel Martin is safe to dill with the Public,how meany time dose he get, or is it till he kill some one,

  • Joseph I did not like what I saw on this video from the police officer. If its my mother on board that emergency bus I would lose my mind. Found it insulting for if it was the officers mother he would be fighting. Its obvious its the officers miss conduct and if the department of public safety wants to pardon him, it speaks volume about their department conduct and practice and its scary. If me signing this petition helps support change sign me in. Hope the mother made it ok and she is feeling well and the hospital is taking aggressive legal actions against the department for mistreating his not just his employees but also its patients.

  • william Giron Is this officer still on duty I will like to know. You can file a criminal charges and Lawsuit.
