this gave me the shivers. i cant believe he did that!! and HE called HER an ass, so hes just as foul mouthed as him.
The guy shouldn`t have focused on the swearing, he should be listening to the problem and helping her. What a d!ck.
Also, if there`s one time when I think swearing is completely and entirely permissible, it`s when you`re panicked out of your freaking mind `cause you think a loved one is dying. Being a 911 operator, he should have know that if she WAS panicked to that point, hanging up was the very LAST thing he should have done. You never, ever hang up when someone calls in an emergency, especially when that emergency is causing the other person distress. To me, what he did was not only idiotic, but also heading over into the completely heartless territory.
A) she didnt get what she was asking for..she didnt get anything actually..except a hang up
B) she didnt curse anyone out, she never swore at him, she was obviously scared and wasnt thinking about being politically correct in the situation and a cop of 30 years should fully understand this - and be used to it for that matter
C) Yes, he did have to help her. He made a sworn oath to infact help her.
The cop was wrong, the girl did absolutely NOTHING wrong, and should not have been treated the way she was
I probably speak for everyone else reading this when i say... Shut the .... up!Your dad, who has just left hospital, is found on the kitchen floor unconcious and having a fit, do you expect his terrified 17 year old daughter to be calm and polite on the phone? No.911 is an EMERGENCY line, in an EMERGENCY people will be stressed and the way the cop reacted can`t be excused in any way.. I`ll emphasise it again for you.. EMERGENCY??Nobody has to do a god damn thing for you??What the f*ck do they get paid for then, to send out help IF/WHEN THEY WANT TO?She didn`t even get a chance to say what went on because he hung up, without asking what the trouble is, which is his JOBWith all due respect i haven`t been through such a thing, as have most people commenting on this.. But how you can support the cop is just ridiculous.. Simple
i don`t know where you made this assumption...but in the REAL WORLD...911 is supposed to help in every situation...let it be a cat stuck in a tree...to a multiple murder...if the girl has attitude...the cop only had to say "okay calm down...what`s the problem?" not "okay 1st uf awl! u dnt neid 2 b swerin ovr 9-1-1!!"...he should have just moved on...it`s not like she was personally attacking him....all she said was "what the f*ck".....it would have been appropriate of him of she said "okay listen here F*CK-O! get a F*ckin ambulance down here now you stupid F*cktard!"...but no....i therefore claim your comment to be null and void thank you...don`t comment again...
Those of you blaming the girl have obviously never had an emergency like this. You don`t know what it feels like to have someone you love in a potentially fatal situation. She could have handled it better, sure, but it was the cops job to handle it better. He`s the one who`s supposed to stay calm. I used to work in customer service, and if I called a customer a stupid ass, I would have been fired on the spot, and that was just cell phone insurance, not life and death.
Maybe it`s because you KEPT HANGING UP ON HER.
Im just going to LOL at the comments for a while
and to thetoastking, it happens in Europe too. Stupidity is a human trait, it doesn`t matter what side of the pond you live on.
But a policeman making up his own laws!!!!
For feck sake, they are granted power by a sovereign people that they might protect those people. For making up his own laws, he deserves jail.
Everyone is so goddam sensitive these days. We are training our kids to be pussies and to cry when someone utters something that might hurt their feelings. The politically correct crowd are going to destroy America - they`ve already severely weakened our unique identity.
So who gives a rip if the kid swears? Jesus Christ. That arrogant cop is a pussy and probably drinks his own spoo.
I was thinking, `Good she deserves it, mean bitch`
Of course she was being self-centred; SHE WAS MAKING AN EMERGENCY CALL! I`d think she had every RIGHT to be thinking only of herself and the situation she was in with her father.
What do you expect her to do, make small talk and ask the officer how his day was before saying "oh by the way, my father needs an ambulance. But enough about me, how are YOU doing?"
When someone needs an ambulance, you do NOT hesitate to transfer the call. Not one second.
I agree with the comments here where he shouldn`t have let his emotion (or initial gut reaction to retaliate verbally) get the best of him. If this happened to me and something bad happened to my dad, I am so going to haunt his life forever.
FYI, I have called 911 while a good friend of mine was having a seizure, but I tried to keep a cool head and gave them the address and explained what was going on. That said, I hope the cop gets his pants sued off, he`s an adult and a veteran cop....He could have handled that waaaaaaay better.
Anyone can have a `Bad Day`, But being a trained crisis call person means you have to set all that aside and manage the call.
Fired for it ? NO.. Suspended ? YES.. Re-Trained ? Definate YES!
I can guatan-drating-tee you wouldn`t act rationally when presented with the same situation if it were your dad, stfu."
Let`s give YOUR father a seizure and let YOU call 911 and deal with an incompetent non-nice individual cop who thinks it`s more important to correct your profanity than to get you a drating ambulance.
I can guatan-drating-tee you wouldn`t act rationally when presented with the same situation if it were your dad, stfu.
Not with that mouth, `youngster!
No, you fail.
THEY`RE ALL MY AMBULANCES! I CALLED DIBS ON THEM!-Stupid cop who deserves to seize and die while someone refuses him help.
Even if a call might seem like a prank call they just have to keep calm and see what it is. O.o It`s their duty and they need to follow through.
Oh yea, repost.
Even though the language filter doesn`t filter out "piss", most of our members still use "pi*s" out of a sense of responsibility and keeping the site nice.
That guy was such a righteous arse..he should have his mouth smacked in. Wonder what all those merits were about.
alsoSome people swear when they panic! Guh.
"vv Wow, a new user called RepostPolice, whose first sentence in his first comment is about how old this is. I can tell you`re going to be a barrel of laughs and positivity. Having said that, welcome to I-A-B!"
What does he mean he "couldn`t get through her comments?" He kept hanging up on her!
but what if he did die because of the delay? is the chief still going to smile to the camera and negotiate for their incompetency?
i hate stupid people. especialyl whe nthere suppose to be helping us. let alone i na ife or deth situation.
Easy tough guy.
But yeah. I hope I never have to place my or someone elses life in the hands of a 911 operator like this.
HAHAHA worst come-back EVER
The World- Land of more contradictions
REALLY pisses me off...
the cop was wrong in every possible way. period. he doesn`t deserve to be cop. i only hope that karma comes knocking on his door soon...
Who is he to discipline her? Freedom of speech means nothing apparently. What`s his address? I`m gonna go knock someone out.
Oh and anyone who thinks the girl is at fault, hav something seriously wrong with themselves.
Well maybe if you hadn`t, oh I don`t know, HUNG UP DURING AN EMERGENCY!?
Luckily not all cops in the US are dbags like this guy, just the ones that you hear about on here.
There are lots of great cops, but you won`t hear about them. The story would be like "Cop does his job, and is not a dbag." Not a very interesting story.
That and her father looked like freddy kreuger.
Either way, it was the policeman`s job - as a (supposedly) impartial party, who wasn`t currently looking at a member of his family fitting on the floor - to stay calm, and impart calm, a job at which he entirely failed. Plus what a hypocrite - his language wasn`t exactly soapy either.
Take your own head out of your ass you stupid sack of scrotum sweat! If your to stupid to acctually LISTEN to what is said in the video dont blame me and certainly dont insult me when I said nothing insulting you.
I hope you are NEVER allowed to work in any form of emergancy service because you obviously fail at having any sort of empathy for a fellow human being in despair let alone any form of intelligence!
Sure the cop was a jerk and should get fired for this... but it didn`t seem like she was more upset at the cop for hanging up on her than she was concerned for her father.
Do they hang up when all they get is silence? They could assume that someone ass-dialed them...but it could just as easily be someone in a very desperate situation who has managed to make the call, but for whatever reason is unable to speak (medical emergency, for instance; managing to dial, but then passing out shortly afterwards).
They`re able to trace calls, right? Keep them on the line, find where the call is coming from, and send a response out. You`d either get help to an emergency, or you`ll catch a prankster.
You might make the argument that they should hang up so they`re not wasting time that can be spent on real calls, but the answer to that is that they should have more staff to take the calls, not that they should make snap judgements about what`s legitimate and what`s not. ALL calls to 911 should be treated as severe emergencies until proven otherwise.
and called a f*cking moron over and over and over....by that chick. That would be sufficient punishment
I can understand people that don`t accept swearing. It`s fine. But when you`re a cop, and someone calls you, frantic, needing immediate help, it shouldn`t matter what language they use because THEY NEED EMERGENCY HELP.
She`s freaking out because her father is on the floor, possibly dying, and he`s worried about the language she`s using. Some protector of the people.
Also, one of the main purposes of the 911 line is to calm people down. If he`d have just asked her to calm down a bit and explain, instead of berating her from the start, things could have gone a lot easier.
Combine that with the fact that he swore BACK at her, instead of being the man he`s supposed to be as a cop, and you have a combustion situation. Things exploded.
Now, I wouldn`t say FIRED is the right punishment. Suspension, for sure. But this guy`s record is clean, so maybe there were some pre-existing circumstances, but that`s no excuse.
He SHOULD be punished, just maybe not f
Two things wrong with what you said.
A) SHE didn`t hang up after the first time when she didn`t get anyone, HE hung up. SHE was in the middle of telling him to send an ambulance each time.
B) She DID get the same person every time, so you`re an immediate dumbass. Watch the video, and if you already did, watch it again and let it sink in through your thick skull.
Clever. I counter that with "your mother"
Also: The right video, apparently not the one you were watching :O
And awaay! -fwoosh-
Oh by the way on the comment in regards to not getting the same person In a call centre such as a 911 place there is a system on the phone lines called line seeker so if I ring and get officer douche, he hangs up I ring back the system has my number stored it will try to push me back through to Officer Douche. So its totally believable that she would have to speak to him. the wanker.
That being said, officer guy needs to buck the f uck up and do his job. You`re supposed to be able to deal with hysterical people. It`s kind of why we pay you.
GET HIM, GUYS!! D:<
Totally irrelvant! Nobody picked up on the first call and she was very frightened and obviously frustrated at the lack of response.
The guy dosnt deserve to be a police officer. You do not EVER hang up the phone on somebody who desperate for an ambulance. This cop did that repeatedly!
Considering this someone who is there to protect the public, deal with tense senarios and evaluate what course of action to take in emergency situations he did a pretty crap job. He hung up the phone! The emergancy services are supposed (even under US law) supposed to follow up on ALL calls.
Dont make excuses for this scrote!
maybe if you didnt hang up...
This guy and the cop who detained Ryan Moats need to go drive off a cliff together.
if your dad is on the floor, possibly dying, you`re not going to care whether or not you are being polite and courteous
