Salt Lake County DA requests FBI assistance in Nurse Alex Wubbels investigation

SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill has requested the FBI’s assistance in the investigation into the arrest of a Utah nurse who refused to allow a blood draw from an unconscious patient without following proper procedure.

In a statement released Thursday, Gill said his office officially requested the FBI investigate: “any and all individuals involved in the chain of conduct arising from the incident at the University of Utah Hospital on July 26, 2017 for any Civil Rights Violations under the color of authority.”

    Yeah, that’ll work. Cop investigating cop. I know who’s guilty! A Cop!

    Good move. They (the dept) know they are fucked and this is the only thing they can do.

    I’ll say again, I hope she takes them to FedCourt for civil rights violations and goes after them INDIVIDUALLY as well.

    Also good to see the ambulance company owner fire the jackboot who drove for him as a 2nd job.

      Do you think there “might” be an additional charge coming for Interfering With a Criminal Investigation?

      An oath breaker like this has to think he has enough friends in the department to walk. Maybe not this time now that it went national. One hopes.

    He’s going to get away with it. They are going to use the excuse that the patient, who was unconscious, is a truck driver with a Commercial Driver’s License. Therefore they (the police) didn’t need his consent, since under Federal guidelines for CDL holders, he had given consent when he obtained his CDL.
    At the time of the video, it was 7 hours after the accident and he was in a ‘coma’ that entire time. The police had been at the emergency room for 2 hours trying to get a blood sample. Not once during that 2 hours did anyone mention he was a CDL holder and thus ‘consented’. Not once during that 2 hours did the police try to reach a judge to get a telephonic warrant (happens all the time – they actually have judges on call during non courthouse hours just for this).
    But – this is the balloon they are now beginning to toss around to excuse his behavior.
    He’s going to get away with it.

      Okay, but it’s going to cost him his home, everything he’s earned and maybe his family before it’s all over. Lawyers aren’t cheap.

      • Winston Smith says:

        He’s probably got free legal thru the PBA. Most cops do if they have half a brain.

        • Nate says:

          It depends on whether there is a union, or not. Some places don’t have unions – and don’t have PBAs.

    I’d say Lawyers are creeps. Sorry did you say cheap?

    just a thought, that rogue cop was in full control of his faculties when he arrested her, he did not pull the S.O.P. of the body slam to the pavement and the knee drop into the kidney, or any of the multitude of other spiteful things they pull when they have you down on the ground and they are in “complete control”.

  6. Granny says:

    That entire scene was like something out of The Handmaiden’s Tale. I have watched it several times and the pussys that were supposed to protect her were as useless as tits on a snake. The Nazi who hauled her away is exposed for the bullying piece of shit he is. This will not go away, and he will not get away with it. Talk about the Mother of all cluster fucks.

  7. Madmike says:

    Or once they do it and nothing happens when it gets quietly swept under rug..then it becomes a prelude of next step in secret agenda…only time will tell!!!

  8. Dan says:

    Delay and obfuscate…….do whatever you can to postpone actually DOING anything knowing that time means some new outrage will come along to distract he masses. If the DA and the department actually intended to punish the guilty they would have done so…. they’ve had PLENTY of time to do so. They don’t and have never intended to do anything but cover this up. This is just part of the song and dance bullshit routine.

  9. Dave says:

    From what I’ve seen of the FBI as of late…
    Call me skeptical.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
