Stupid Bastard Of The Day

January 26th, 2006 | researchmaterial

Joshua Philip Martin was in his fourth day on the job as a rescue-squad worker in Russell County when, in a playful mood, he decided to reach into the front seat of the ambulance and zap one of his co-workers with the defibrillator paddles.

Yesterday, in Russell Circuit Court, a judge convicted Martin, 25, of involuntary manslaughter…

  1. What makes a person dumb: Accidentally killing your paramedic buddy by hitting him with the difibrillator paddles.

    What makes them even dumber: Being a paramedic and not being able to resuscitate said paramedic buddy.

  2. The most horrible part of the article was they had the poor woman’s last words quoted along the lines of “oh god mike he just shocked me!” which makes me a sick person for giggling at the absurdity of those being her last words. However I am glad the guy is going to prison, you cannot be stupid enough to put defibulators on a woman killing her and then be allowed to work in a job that is supposed to SAVE lives.

  3. I heard this on a local ‘zoo’ radio program this morning, with all the ‘bzzzzt’ and screaming noises. Perfect way to get this news really.

  4. ryan: may jeezus himself strike all such radio shows with lightning and doom. good god.

    there’s a great david cross skit about him having to be on one such show. Erherm.

  5. He was just playing around? Thank fuck he wasn’t a nuclear technician.

  6. this is the most horrible story I have ever heard on this site. Becuase their is no good way to solve it. Normally when someone makes a mistake- you can fire them. But when that mistake costs someone their life?- What do you do? What makes it better? She’s dead. You send him to jail- his life is ruined too, for something he did unintentinally. But yet in killing her she left too freaking kids behind? On one hand I want this freaking wanker to rot in prison forever- on the other hand I know it won’t solve anything. This story is messing my head up and it hurts too much to think about it.

  7. What kind of medic doesn’t know those things can kill? I know that. I thought everyone did.

  8. Fuck.

    As an ambulance person that is seriously fucking scary.

  9. This is what I call an electrifying lapse of insanity.

  10. dear comment number6,
    what do you mean him rotting in prison wont solve anything? of course it will, it means that people are safe form him and his retarded actions, what sort of shitface would do something like that? do you want people like him to be roaming the streets? maybe coming into contact with your children or loved ones and ‘accidentally’ killing them so easioly as a joke? what a retard is all i say and i hope he suffers in prison and becomes somebody’s ass bitch which i hope he doesnt enjoy.
