Mr. Wright was wrong. The officer was out of control with his misguided authority. I no longer teach my kids to to respect the police but to avoid them and to be cautious of putting too much trust in them. The lesson is, never ever say "no" to a cop. It's like poking a pit bull with a sharp stick. Upon arrival at the hospital, Mr Wright was not escaping from the law down an alley after a bank robbery. He was running into an ER with his wife. Officer Daves could have calmly followed him into the ER and handled it all after it was determined what her condition was. Blocking Wright and his wife from the hospital served no purpose other than demonstrate his power and authority. Does anyone understand how panic-stricken you can get when you think a loved one might die? It's easy to judge if you have never been there. Sure you might say Wright is a nurse, but is a different matter when you are dealing with a family member. Common sense was thrown out the window on BOTH sides.
