Make these a federal crime.
Anyone holding a hospital, fire, police, ambulance, or any other public emergency service hostage in these kinds of attacks should be immediately be turned over to the FBI for tracking down, locating, & dragged into court by the short & curlies.
The crims are putting innocent lives at risk of *death* if those services can't do their job to protect the public, so how is this not considered a terrorist attack on national infrastructure?
If some shit for brains started blowing up cop cars with the cops inside then the feds would be all over it like fleas on a mutt, but since it's "only" hospitals (at the moment) it's not an issue?
Fuck that. Get the feds involved, track down the crims, & drag their asses into court.
