From Beto O’Rourke:
“When we see (those weapons) being used against children, and in Odessa, I met the mother of a 15-yr-old girl who was shot by an AR-15 and that mother watched her bleed to death over the course of an hour because so many other people were shot by that AR-15 in Odessa and Midland, there weren’t enough ambulances to get to them in time.”
O’Rourke was talking about 15-year-old Leilah Hernandez. Leilah was an OHS student who was shot to death while her brother, Nathan Hernandez, 18, was injured while the siblings were at car dealership parking lot in Odessa. City of Odessa officials have said that a firetruck was at the scene in 7 minutes and 21 seconds and that an ambulance was there about a minute later.
Huber said there are a total of 11 ambulances with eight of them staffed with paramedics at the eight fire stations. The three ladder trucks and five fire trucks are also staffed with paramedics.
However, Huber said running out of ambulances is a problem OFR deals with on a weekly basis. Like many public and private businesses in West Texas, employees are difficult to find and staffing shortages are common during this economic boom.
7 minutes and 21 seconds is not an hour. I do not know why Ms. Hernandez was not stabilized and transported to a hospital. I do know that people are attending college to receive degrees that are not providing any benefit to our society. I do know that people are not attending college due to the cost. I do know that people are not attending college when they can receive entitlements to not work. I do know that the “higher education” is being used to enslave our children.
A child’s life should not be used as a political sound bite. What else do these politicians have but their version of the truth? Be assured that it will be Trump’s fault because his economic recovery is causing staffing shortages.
