I've never heard of anyone attacking EMTs, but if they do get attacked often give em protection.

EMT's have been attacked before. But all the cases I've heard of, it's just been fists. I've never heard of an armed person attacking an EMT.

I'm probably wrong on this, but my guess is that maybe criminals have a certain amount of respect for EMTs.

I'm not sure what the criminal opinion is on EMT's. I would assume they have some respect or atleast a reluctance to attack them becauseif they get hurt they'll most likely be treated by EMT's.

You're speaking for criminals as a whole. Someone who kills people, and then eats/makes clothing out of said persons flesh is a bit different from a common purse snatcher... The snatcher probably would run or back down when confronted. If the flesh eater is confronted, he'll probably fight back, especially if he is confronted alone.

No, I'm talking about the majority of criminals.

If they're harmed in the line of duty/have an job where they're never really off duty, then the punishment for harming them should be worse when they're on the clock/there can be no argument of ignorance made. If you're drinking at a bar and you get into a fight with some other schmuck who just happens to be a (off-duty, un-uniformed) police officer? It seems a bit unfair to punish someone more harshly for that.

Schofield, there really aren't that many cannibals around. He was speaking in generalities, and I think generally most people of any stripe have some degree of respect for EMTs. Keep in mind that by using your Buffalo Bill example, you've put that ball way out in left field. It'd be akin to you discounting the statement "generally people don't have to worry about being made into a suit by another person" because it happened once or twice.

I pretty much agree with this. If you are attacking a police officer you are really striking out at society in general rather then just the individual, assuming they are on duty. You are attacking the uniform in addition to the person in the uniform.
