    The patient was the victim of a head on car crash, instigated by a high speed police pursuit against department policy

    The other driver--the suspect--died in the crash. So why did the cop want the victim's blood? To find something to disparage the victim...

    And excuse the police from instigating the deadly car chase. This is not really uncommon, relatively speaking. Other cop on video saying...

    No probable cause. It's not that they didn't want to go to effort of getting a warrant, they knew no judge would sign one.

    Also, the Supreme Court decision holding it unconstitutional to draw blood w/o consent or warrant came down last year. The cop...

    Is a trained phlebotomist in the police blood draw unit. There is *no way* he was unaware of a SCOTUS case that directly controlled his work

    So this is incredible in that its actually worse than the video shows--it's criminal abuse of power in at least three ways

    Turns out, victim was off duty Idaho cop. Nurse Wubbels was arrested for protecting an unconscious officer from abuse by another officer.

  2. @obarcala You're also missing cultural indicators of power here: the men are speaker to her w/ certain words, tones of voice to signal authority.

  4. @PuddnHaid @obarcala Of course. But this is *strongly* coded language and tone he's using that most won't pick up on.

  5. @PuddnHaid @obarcala 1/Sure. This is in Utah. Men in the Mormon church have outsized power in that culture. You can switch "on" to a power dynamic

    @PuddnHaid @obarcala 2/You do this with words, phrases, tone of voice. He's doing that here. Mormon women are talking about this in other forums. I was raised Mo

    @PuddnHaid @obarcala 3/We immediately spotted it. It's meant to signal *authority* to us. Patriarchal authority. We should acquiesce. It is our DUTY.

    @PuddnHaid @obarcala 4/Note that interestingly women can do this too. I can "speak" Mormon... It has a rhythym, higher pitch. It makes us less threatening.

    @PuddnHaid @obarcala 5/I've used it to help get what I want: Soft power. RN clearly wasn't doing this, playing role. It riled him up A LOT. Notice he snapped.

    @PuddnHaid @obarcala 7/There are obvious threats & bullying here. There are also subtleties that are unique to the cultural context that amplify the situation.

  6. @nicolefv @PuddnHaid @obarcala Nicole u r spot on. Mormons may not have a corner on misogamy, but they base their ENTIRE existence on that principle

  7. @h_sphotos @PuddnHaid @obarcala Right. Maybe I'm not explaining well enough. There's a diff between being threats, and having a religious DUTY to obey that's wired into you
