I can't stand that term "first responder". The first responder is YOU and whoever is around when whatever happens. For example, a young woman had a seizure in class this spring so another professor, a student and myself were the first responders. 10 minutes later campus security showed up followed by an ambulance 10 minutes later. First responders my ass, they are the trained responders with the specialized equipment that we bought them that show up second.

As for holding government officials liable for their misdeeds, good luck. Do you remember the Duke Lacrosse case where the DA had the evidence that those guys were not guilty but he prosecuted them anyway? He got away scot-free. Luckily for those kids their parents had enough money to hire a good lawyer for them or they would be in jail. When guys like that DA get away free I have a lot of trouble having any respect for the criminal just-us system.
