Lawyer for protestors who blocked ambulance says it’s not the protestors’ fault

Lawyer: Police responsible for ambulance problems at protest

February 6, 2017

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — An attorney representing protesters who blocked a Connecticut highway on Saturday says police are responsible for problems at the demonstration, including the delay of an ambulance stuck in traffic.

Saturday’s demonstration in New Haven involved about 100 people protesting President Donald Trump’s immigration order. Police said the protesters obstructed an ambulance, forcing medics to perform an emergency medical procedure.

Attorney Patricia Kane says protesters had asked police to inform them if emergency vehicles needed to get through — and that officers didn’t do so. Kane says she has been told the patient was a woman in labor.

State police charged 66-year-old Norman Clement, of New Haven, with inciting a riot, disorderly conduct, interfering with an officer and reckless use of the highway by a pedestrian. Kane says he is a long-time activist.
