JUST IN: Anti-Trump Rioters Try To KILL Emergency Patient, Here’s What We Know

Connecticut Anti-Trumpers took to the street with their protests again this weekend with some 200 protesters were marching around Route 34 at 5 p.m. while carrying a banner, reading, “No Ban No Wall New Haven” in an effort to express their opposition to President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.

These protests blocked the road on the Route 34 connector and backed traffic up near Interstate 91 in New Haven Saturday.

When asked about the protests, demonstrators claimed their purpose was to make a statement against a laundry list of grievances they have against the two-week-old administration, including the temporary immigration ban.

Protester John Lugo stated, “This administration is attacking the people and this is a unity demonstration. Like we bring in the Latinos, the white people, the black, the Muslim, to work together.”

Those protests took a sinister turn according to State Police when the protesters “obstructed an ambulance carrying a critically ill patient. Due to this delay, ambulance personnel were required to perform an emergency medical procedure in the ambulance instead of at the hospital.

Blocking the highway is a crime and protesters chose to defy that law by standing in front of the ambulance.  Even when asked to move by police, they refused to comply, thus prompting the emergency medical procedure to take place to save the critically ill patient’s life. The current medical condition of the man is unknown.

Shift Commander Lt. Sam Brown told the New Haven Independent, “The officers tried to guide him out of the way. He pushed an officer trying to get back.”

State police were able to arrest the leader of the protest but not without some difficulty.  66-year-old Norman Clement tried to flee on foot knocking down some of the protesters he helped organize in his attempts to flee apprehension. He has been charged with inciting a riot, disorderly conduct, interfering with an officer, and reckless use of the highway by a pedestrian. He has been released on $5,000 bond and is currently scheduled to appear at New Haven Superior Court on Feb. 13, 2017.

A second man has also been charged in connection with the protest and the subsequent medical emergency that ensued as a result. A third man was detained but released without being charged.

Law enforcement officials issued a sternly worded statement in a news release about the incident —

The Connecticut State Police would like to remind the public that protests blocking any highway or roadway is not only a crime, but dangerous and will NOT be tolerated. All laws will be strictly enforced.”
