Here’s The Scoop …. The Black Marks For McIntee Just Keep Coming …

MARCH THE  VICE MAYOR OUT OF OFFICE IN MARCH……

“Politicians need religion even more than a hermit in retreat. If a hermit acts out of bad motivation, he harms no one but himself. But if someone who can directly influence the whole of society acts with bad motivation, then a great number of people will be adversely affected.” Dalai Lama

Dear Readers… The pile-up of bad actions are coming at an accelerated pace for Vice Mayor McIntee …. The By- The- Sea- Future newspaper is out today and Editor Mark Brown’s front page story is one that caught the eye of this writer last May  when this incident took place. (prev. posts….VFD cat.) This article will surely resonate among the Town’s voters when they make their decision for Commissioner next March!…. It contains key information from the  BSO Investigative Action Report that confirmed the Vice Mayor was (in this writer’s opinion) negligent in his actions on that day as the LBTS-VFD Deputy Chief  “First Responder” on scene for an apparent suicide that took place in his neighborhood…Mr Brown lays out the chain of events… from the 911 call…..Vice Mayor/Deputy Chief McIntee’s  actions after receiving that call on his radio and the series of  bad decisions he made ….He did not follow VFD procedure to wait for the BSO and chose to enter the scene knowing there was a gun per dispatch. He entered the room knowing a gun was in there with a child and a woman following him and he decided NOT to provide any first aid as a First Responder possibly altering the outcome of the gentleman’s death!…  Will the wife decide to sue him, now knowing he did not assist her husband as he was obligated to do as a First Responder?…Why didn’t the VFD Fire Chief immediately suspend McIntee pending a full internal investigation of his actions?….Why didn’t the Town Manager ask the Chief to remove McIntee as she did recently with the VFD Battalion Chief ? ( We all know that she has the authority to do so.)….Will Town residents want this VFD Deputy Chief to be allowed anywhere near their homes on 911 calls after learning about this incident?…

Here’s is some additional information….

The VFD Incident Report (prev. post ) which includes the CAD report……. (VM/Dep. Chief McIntee acknowledged this was how he heard the call in his BSO interrogation).. ..

VFD Incident Report 2009-1400474-000/ The Incident was on May 4, 2009/ The VFD Report was made on May 8, 2009 (Dep Chief McIntee arrived per report at at 17:12:35 )

……………………………………………………………………………………..

The BSO Event Report was made on May 4, 2009… LS09-05-00054….it included the following narrative by BSO Deputy Treijs…(BSO per report at arrived 17:13)

” On 05/04/09 I responded to 2036 SE 15th Ct. in the Town of Lauderdale By The Sea, in reference to a call of shots fired, possible suicide attempt. upon arrival, I observed a Voluntary Fire Department’s (VFD) vehicle in the driveway. I met with the Complainant XXXX, and VFD Assistant Jerry McIntee inside the house, talking in the living room. XXXX advised me her husband XXXXX just shot himself and is in the master bedroom at the end of the hallway.

Dep. Pickell, Dep. Eason and I went to the master bedroom, where I observed a white male  XXXXX laying on his back in the bed, with a handgun to the right from his hea. There was a large quantity of blood behind the subject’s head. XXXXX arms were trembling. I immediately secured the handgun in the trunk of my patrol vehicle. American Medical Response medics arrived at 1716 hrs and started CPR on the subject, transporting the subject to North Broward Medical Center at 1738 hrs, followed by Dep. Hincken.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………

BC- The BSO report says AMR arrived at 1716 hrs/The VFD report says AMR arrived at 17:15:15/ The AMR Town monthly report says they arrived at 17:12:35 …we have been told they arrived and stood down until BSO secured the scene for them to enter as their standard operating procedures dictates.. just as required in the VFD SOPs…(not followed by Dep. Chief McIntee)…

“Stated he heard a shooting call on his fire radio, when he went out onto his driveway he heard screaming from the victim’s house which is located approximately 400 feet from his house. He got in his car and went to the scene. He was told by XXXX that the husband had shot himself and was in the master bedroom not moving. McIntee said he entered the master bedroom with the victim’s wife and daughter following him and after taking a look at the victim he knew he was dead because of his color, he never checked for vital signs. McIntee then made everyone sit in the living room until the arrival of the police, which he said was almost immediate. McIntee said he hung around for a while with the ambulance company, then left the scene.”

EMT Robbie Salvino

“(They treated the victim at the scene and transported him to BDMC where he was pronounced dead by Doctor Burshan at 5:58PM) EMT Anderson stated the victim had faint life signs and he decided the victim should be transported to the nearest trauma center.”

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

BC- Deputy Chief McIntee said in his interview with the Sheriff that he did not check for vital signs…”he knew he was dead because of his color“…BUT the dispatch said he was unconscious and breathing…He did not act as a first responder…checking for rigor mortis or morbid lividity…and walked away from assisting the victim …The BSO report they entered the room to see the victim’s “arms were trembling” and AMR report the victim still  “had faint life signs” …We residents have been told the point of Deputy Chief McIntee or any VFD First Responder is to assist the patient until AMR is on scene…He chose to not do that!…That decision was on top of the decision he made to enter the scene, against the VFD-SOPs and to allow the family members (including this young child) to enter the master bedroom where he knew there was a gun and allowing her to again witness her father after he shot himself!… He was negligent and should be held accountable on every level!
