A young man goes to the aid of an older man who is being taunted by 2 thugs and is shot . Paramedics " (Reportedly - not confirmed yet ) , left him on the ground for 20 minutes telling him he was faking and to get up, that he was ONLY shot by a pellet gun . 1 Hour later he was dead . The young man was also NOT taken to the nearest hospital for some reason . This was witnessed by a Local Muslim leader in Hamilton, Ontario . I don't know for sure if this poor young man was Muslim or not, and it should not have mattered. What a frickin shame that a person with well intentions goes to help someone and dies for it . I know it happens all the time but this one certainly caught my attention.

This story is just as bad as a law enforcement officer being wasted by a criminal while the officer was just doing his duty to protect and serve the community.

It's that same thing isn't it really ..... Life seems to be cheap and have no value for some people . Look how many people are sentenced to jail for a crime and have no remorse in what they have done?

@Luap1050 That is true since people forget the Commandment "You shall not murder."

It's sad but most people will not help and he did. That was no way to die.

Thats what seems to be the case...an investigation is under way and while hopefully they will find the truth ...unfortunately , that does not bring a life back.

@Luap1050 Regardless, it will serve as a big lesson.

I'm always careful reporting things like this. There is often a lot more to the story than the few 'facts' that get distorted to make any first responder out to be a villain.

And I agree with your comment . .that's what I said reportedly - But the big News networks up here are all over it . And there is no doubt being a Paramedic on the street is stressful and they run into a lot of Minor stuff and attention getters

@Luap1050 my son inlaw is a paramedic. The media will be quick to report any perceived/implied wrongdoing. Never waiting to gather the facts... The first responders have rules they are expected to adhere to...for their own safety as well as the safety of the public.

No one took his vital signs? This isn't quite adding up.

The Police are investigating still....stay tuned, and we will see how it turns out and see if it's buried. If it is true it's almost as bad as a cop shotting an un armed man in the back while he is running....

I hope thats not true. I cant imagine a paramedic leaving an injured person on the ground for so long.

Hard to comment on unconfirmed reports. But it's a sad fact of life when you see You tube videos of people ignoring and passing by a person lying on the street who is obviously hurt and needs assistance.
