Dear friends,

Could you please help to see the below sentences:-

They are conversations between a nurse and a police officer.

P: You were great. Listen, you how how gunshot vics act?
N: You mean, "Patch me up, Doc, before the pigs get here"?
P: Yes. You see anybody with anybody with a bad burn, anybody acting like that...
N: ASAP

Anybody can help to explain the bold sentence.

The nurse is saying what criminal gunshot victims usually say - "quickly repair me" - "Patch me up".

Before the police arrive" - "before the pigs get here"

I think I can help, but first, two questions: Is this from a book? AND, can you verify the first sentence? It doesn't quite make sense to me.

Apparently there's a typo in that sentence. It should be "You know how gunshot vics act?" ("vics" is short for "victims")
