Nurse arrested by Utah Police freed

Alex Wubbels, a nurse, was arrested because she followed hospital procedures in not providing the taking of a suspect’s blood without a warrant.

The nurse whose arrest for refusing to draw blood from an unconscious patient drew nationwide criticism said on Friday what hurt most wasn’t being manhandled by a detective, but rather that none of the other officers who watched the struggle intervened to stop the arrest and subsequent detainment.

“I was being bullied and nobody was willing to speak up for me,” she told reporters,  “That is one of the main points of this whole issue.”

This is policing Utah style – will the UK see this form of law enforcement one day – I wonder?
