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.

    " Officer" White presents a danger to the citizens that he took an oath to serve. He was very clearly in a one-sided power struggle with an EMT who was doing his job to transport a patient to the hospital. Mr. White's supervisor is also clearly making up invalid and infantile justifications about the EMT needing to "honor" the status of the police officers. If the chief cannot differentiate between an emergency or a cop just wanting to brandish his authority of being able to arrest someone. The culture of this PD is apparent in that they will unflinchingly support cops who not only do not conduct themselves as sworn, nor show that they have the ability to make critical, professional and competent judgement calls.

    Fire this angry, violent, stupid, corrupt man before his rage ends up getting innocent people killed.

    His actions do so much to damage the public trust. Officers like these are the reason citizens are developing a lack of respect for law enforcement.
