: : Hi
: : I have one last question of understanding, I'll quote:
: : The police officer says:
: : "I want the paramedics that were in this house back here, immediately. Police escort, get them on this front lawn now".
: : As you might remember is a quadruple murder.
: : My question: Does he mean that police escort would bring the paramedics to the crime scene, or another possibility, that he wants police escort to be brought to the scene with no relation to the paramedics.
: : Thank you very much for any help!
: I sure he wants the paramedics to recieve a police escort. Since police escorts who are not escorting anyone are just police, it doesn't make sense for him to ask for a police escort to be brought to the scene. I'm not sure if I'm expressing this very well. Let me know if that makes sense to you.
The officer is barking out orders and leaving out words. He means "Bring back the paramedics, with a police escort (for them)."
