Easton Police Chief: EMT Took ‘Inappropriate’ Pictures Of Patients In Ambulances

Police have arrested an emergency medical technician who allegedly ook inappropriate pictures of patients in ambulances as they were being taken to a hospital and also placed a hidden camera in an Easton EMS building bathroom.

Christopher Barlow, 21, of Duxbury, Mass., also was arrested on gun charges Wednesday, police said, adding that he stole guns from a co-worker at Easton Emergency Medical Services and wrote false information on his application for a rifle.

In addition, Barlow forged documents to pass himself off as Easton police officer, Police Chief Timothy Shaw said.

This kid is a moron. And a crook. And a pervert (or something).

Here is a story from Massachusetts about the earlier antics of secret agent

Plymouth DA Warns Police ‘Dangerous’ Suspect Is Out On Bail

PLYMOUTH (CBS) – A man accused of impersonating a Homeland Security agent and stockpiling firearms and explosives is out on bail, but the Plymouth County District Attorney says he isn’t following orders.

District Attorney Timothy Cruz put the word out to the 27 police chiefs in his county that Christopher Barlow is out on bail.

Bail? Yes, I know that bail is not supposed to be a form of punishment, it’s intended to ensure that the defendant shows up for trial. There is, however, a clause in the law which allows a judge to refuse bail if a defendant is dangerous.

The DA in this case did in fact file a motion for that to happen. So, why was Barlow allowed out?

Barlow was being held up until his release on February 16th after a judge denied the DA’s request he be held for dangerousness.

Might want to rethink that one, Mr. Judge.

In another article that I won’t bother to link to, his lawyer said that he was hallucinating last fall due to an overdose of anesthesia from surgery.

In 2016.

Was he hallucinating when he demanded that the police return his firearms? The ones for which he has no license.

Which makes me wonder where those came from.

The trials should be interesting. I hope Barlow (or his family) have a lot of money. His attorney is certainly going to earn his fee.

Massachusetts has suspended his EMT certification and I expect Connecticut will do the same.

This case should be interesting, to say the least.

I’m still trying to figure out under what circumstances photos of patients would be deemed appropriate.

After a long career as a field EMS provider, I'm now doing all that back office stuff I used to laugh at. Life is full of ironies, isn't it? I still live in the Northeast corner of the United States, although I hope to change that to another part of the country more in tune with my values and beliefs. I still write about EMS, but I'm adding more and more non EMS subject matter. Thanks for visiting.
