A cop manning the 911 line got offended by a girl who called in for an ambulance for her father who recently had brain surgery and had fallen to the kitchen floor with a seizure. He hung up on her multiple times and then had her arrested when she drove to the police station for help. Her crime was using the f-word while desperately waiting for the phone to be picked up.Read more »

I saw this news story on the Spanish news channel last night. It’s about a Spanish-language news anchor who was a victim of domestic violence. The news story focuses on her but the tape they played of the 911 call (that part is in English) is what I found enlightening. The 911 operator was absolutely abusive towards this woman who is calling for help because she was in fear for her life. This treatment is not that unusual, I can tell you. It seems to me you can’t count on 911 to rescue you like they’ve always told us to do. At least not without sarcasm, insensitivity and abuse.Read more »

Or there’s the option of not signing up for the annual fee. Instead they will be charged $300 if they make a call for help.”Read more »
