I wonder what got up the cop's ass that day.  Getting divorced or something?  If he can't handle people swearing on the phone when they're having an emergency, he doesn't need to be a 911 operator.

*tsk tsk*

If you're not going to be polite then I'm not going to save you.
Manners cost nothing, Darksider.

Thats it, the next time I'm dying or need help, I'm going to rattle off a string of obcenities so horrible that the 911 operator's ears bleed.

Seriously, I hope that girl's father gets to have a face to face with that cop and ask him why he put his life in danger for such a bull$#!% reason.

I imagine this will result in a somewhat neagatively worded memo being placed in his file, and at his next wage review, his boss will give him a slap on the back and say "Eh, we all have days like that, ha ha".

It's funny how quickly one person's moral high ground can quickly devolve into "do what I say because that's what I say."

Here's the thing, if you are a "first responder," you don't get to have an off day. You are there to save people's lives. They will live or die depending on how well you do your job.

This story is actually rather old, and I have not heard any follow ups. If the seizure victim is alive, well okay. The person who answered the phone should be fired. If that man died, the person should be brought up on criminal charges. That would be criminal negligence. Does anybody have any follow-up news?

I agree with Jack, unless anybody points it out, this guy will still be working those 911 phones.

This apparently happened in 08 and this is the only thing I could find.  Two weeks without pay isn't enough IMO.

Since agreeing to be interviewed by Action News, Chief Thomas Karnes has announced that Sgt. Robert McFarland will face a two-week suspension with no pay, and will take part in additional training.  Meanwhile, Ledesma and her father who is home recovering has hired an attorney, and they’re talking settlement with the Lincoln Park.


On the same news site I found this one.. http://www.wxyz.com/news/story/Detroit-911-Operator-Sentenced-to-Probation/-dAVINdQv0WbSLmbOQZyjw.cspx

Quote
DETROIT (AP) — A 911 operator who authorities say didn't take seriously a boy's calls to report his mother's collapse was sentenced Tuesday to serve a year of probation for willful neglect of duty.

The mother was found dead three hours after the call that was handled by Sharon Nichols.

District Judge Paula Humphries on Tuesday also sentenced Nichols, 45, to perform 15 days of community service. Humphries noted that prior to being convicted in the case, Nichols had no criminal record.


I wonder how many times a year all over the country these kinds of things happen. Its really scary. I am not knocking all 911 operators, just the bad ones. I think most do their job very well.
