    Is he an EMT/paramedic as his job, or was he serving as a "medic" in the capacity of a protest organization? My thoughts and prayers are with him in this very serious injury.

    He is a trained EMT/paramedic but was there to serve the protesters, not the cops.

    Was it aimed intentionally at him though?

    Sorry to hear that. No idea the specifics of the situation but I don't think dismissing the work of police because of this incident is fair.

    At this point in time it would be fair to assume anyone out "protesting" should be ready to face the consequences, it's no longer a game.

    Unfortunately, it goes with the territory. Even as "bystander" at protests or acts of disobedience, I would always expect to get shot with rubber bullets in the eye, getting bean-bagged in the face, or be "accidentally" hit with baseball bat by a rando. Especially given the circumstances where things have been going out of control. Things can go south in a second. I'm older now, so I stay far away from these things.
