Call for Federal Bureau of Investigation probe after black man shot by Utah police

Police body camera footage captured Payne erupting at nurse Alex Wubbels of the University of Utah Hospital on July 26 after she refused his request to draw blood from an unconscious truck driver who was involved in a head-on collision with a suspect fleeing police in another vehicle.

A lawyer for a Utah police officer fired after being caught on video arresting a nurse said he plans to appeal the decision he calls unfair. She wasn't charged, but in the video depicting her arrest, she appears visibly shaken, screaming for help.

One of the ways that they reportedly try to do this is by training officers to slow down so that they have time to rethink their approach. His lawyer, Ed Brass, couldn't immediately be reached.

The Salt Lake County District Attorney wants the FBI to investigate a police shooting that left a black man dead after he ran from police.

Body camera footage of Payne taking nurse Alexandra Wubbels into custody made headlines. He wrote that Tracy had ordered Payne to arrest Wubbles for interfering with a police investigation "without fully understanding the nature of the situation".

Police Chief Mike Brown notified Payne of the termination in a letter, attorney Greg Skorda said. "The Salt Lake City Police Department is probably one of the leading agencies in the country as far as how we train and deploy and use these tactics to deescalate and save lives", Chief Brown told a local TV station earlier in the year.

But Harmon's family and civil rights activists applauded the decision to involve the Federal Bureau of Investigation, saying the district attorney should resign for defending the officer.

Ousted Thai PM Yingluck sentenced in absentia to 5 years
The military seized power from Yingluck's government in a May 2014 coup citing the need to restore order and normalcy. She took office in 2011. "Therefore, the action of the accused is considered negligence of duty".

"In order to be thorough, and given the seriousness of the case and the considerable public interest in the matter, all issues must be completely examined to preserve the public's trust in the criminal justice system and ensure the right measures are taken in this case", Gill wrote.

How did the nurse and her attorney respond?

The letter said Wubbels told investigators that Tracy minimized her concerns, intimidated and lectured her, and made her feel like she was to blame for the events. "I do not think the truth would have been told without the bodycam footage". "I don't get it", she said.

The video went viral after Wubbels went public about her mistreatment, fearing that not enough was being done to prevent further instances of abuse.

The next step for Wubbels will be deciding whether to file a civil lawsuit.

Also of note in this case is Salt Lake City's focus on police de-escalation training.

"The hiring and firing of staff is really an administrative function, but I think we need to look at what happened, how we can prevent this, what policies need to be updated, modified, changed so that going forward residents can count on a safe interaction from our police department".
