Positional Asphyxia, Restraints, and HM's Weird S&M Tactics

crossover showThe guys are back with a new episode! In today’s episode, MC and HM talk about trans­port­ing com­bat­ive suspects/victims/patients.

Should they be in soft restraints? Hand­cuffs? Dri­ving the ambu­lance (to be fair, we didn’t cover this…because, c’mon…).

We also take about the dif­fer­ent options when it comes to restraints in the field…everything from sim­ple rope (not to hogtie, peo­ple) to the Wrap.

In the BOLO, MC let’s you know what he’s read­ing these days.

When it’s time to head back 7S/AIQ, they talk about whether or not dis­cussing your day/incidents with loved ones is a good idea and why.

The Crossover Show — 013 — In Memory of Sgt. Scott Lunger

EOW 7/22/15

Lunger

Thin Blue Warrior

MC and HM recorded a spe­cial edi­tion of the Crossover Show this week in honor of Hay­ward PD Sgt. Scott Lunger.

Sgt. Lunger was shot and killed in the line of duty dur­ing an early morn­ing traf­fic stop on July 22, 2015. At the time of the record­ing, very lit­tle infor­ma­tion was avail­able regard­ing the inci­dent. MC and HM don’t talk specif­i­cally about the inci­dent in which Sgt. Lunger was involved. Instead, HM takes the lead in ask­ing MC about the dan­gers of traf­fic stops and if they should ever be con­sid­ered “routine”.

MC and HM appre­ci­ate your lis­ten­ing to a dif­fi­cult episode. The guys have left the usual friv­o­lity, patches, and BOLO for another show.

This episode opens with radio traf­fic from Sgt. Lunger’s part­ner (and an incred­i­bly pro­fes­sional and cool-headed dis­patcher) and ends emo­tion­ally as well.

If you appre­ci­ate our show and this episode in par­tic­u­lar, please share it.

RIP, Sgt. Lunger.

We have the watch.

The Crossover Show 012

crossover showMC and HM talk about the con­cept of par­ents call­ing the police (be it sin­cerely or as a ploy) and ask­ing for help mak­ing their kids behave.

You may find this hard to believe, but the guys finds it not only stu­pid but patently offensive!

You’ll also learn about not only how the guys were raised them­selves, but how the lessons they learned helped shape the men they’ve become and the par­ents they are to their own kids.

Aussies, Gun Control,

crossover showMC and HM wel­come their buddy from Down Under, Nick Williams! Sure, they start with talk­ing about the crazi­ness of the met­ric sys­tem, Cel­sius, and Aus­tralian medic’s insane vaca­tion poli­cies, but they quickly take a left turn to bring up one of everyone’s favorite topics:

Gun Con­trol!

Come lis­ten in to hear the dif­fer­ences between our two coun­tries’ responses after large mas­sacres (specif­i­cally the Port Arthur Mas­sacre in Aus­tralia and Sandy Hook in the United States).

The only BOLO this week is a 15-minute bit on gun con­trol by Aus­tralian comic Jim Jeffries:

Thanks again to Nick Williams for tak­ing a week to spend with us!  Safe trav­els home, Nicholas Cage!

Happy Medic: The "First Responder" Hater

crossover show

MC and the Happy Medic bandy about the term “First Responder”.

Don’t mis­un­der­stand the sub­head­ing above. HM doesn’t hate first responders…he hates the term.

MC? Not so much.

The guys go ’round and ’round, give each other a mer­ci­less hard time and even­tu­ally agree to dis­agree while agreeing.

It’s like find­ing four-leaf clover in a wormhole.

Boy, we get angst-y at the end of batch record­ings after many beers…we also earn our explicit tag.  You have been warned.

The Origin Story...Tarantino X-Men Style

crossover showEvery story has its origin.

The Crossover Show is no dif­fer­ent; rather, the hosts are no different.

Come along to dis­cover when/how/why Motor­cop and the Happy Medic came to be your hosts and, more impor­tantly, life­long friends.

From col­lege days and an alleged date between MC and a pre-Mrs. HM to a retreat shared years apart and an anony­mous inter­net date request, MC and HM were des­tined to be.

Enjoy The Crossover Show’s Ori­gin Story!

The Uniform Stories...er...Story.

crossover showOur hosts, MC and HM wel­come their first guest of the Crossover Show Reboot: Ben Pugh with UniformStories.com!

The guys talk with Ben about the ori­gin of Uni­form Sto­ries and the (alleged) heav­ily drug-influenced deci­sion to invite our ques­tion­ably intre­pid hosts to con­tribute to the site.

This week’s episode is brought to you by all the words that rhyme with pew.  Don’t worry…it’ll make sense when you lis­ten to the episode.

No BOLO this week as our com­plete focus was on Uni­form Sto­ries.  Check back next week for a return to our reg­u­lar format!
