I totally agree with you Mr. Bacon. I think the sentence was not harsh enough especially knowing the person is on probation already. Most emt or ems are volunteers they do not volunteer their time to get injured by an idiot. They are there to help those injured. Shame on this person.

An assault on an emergency medical care provider is a serious issue and one which deserves the maximum sentence allowable to send a message that such behavior cannot and will not be tolerated.  Our medical providers, all too often, are treated worse than a fast food restaurant employee - while trying to deliver care to ease pain and suffering for those that are ill or injured.  Simply acting and speaking in a polite manner can and should be expected on both sides.
