Amanda Berry`s Call To 911

Is it just me or does the 911 operator have all the compassion of a toad? Don`t they usually stay on with a victim?

I guess others came to the same conclusion as I did about the operator:

Should the operator have stayed on the line? 911 call concerns some pros

Contrary to trite, godawful Hollywood movies, 911 operators are expected to keep calm and dispassionate- even during the most horrendous calls. Could she have done a better job at asking questions?- Sure. Does she usually? Will she in the future? Do you perform YOUR job at 100%, 100% of the time? Doubtful. Police, fire and other first responders have to witness carnage on a daily basis, but 911 operators only have their imaginings of what's transpiring- I think that would be a bit harder to deal with.

" If you listen at around :42ish you can hear him say thank you very quietly like some people do when they disconnect a call. "

Yeah, I did hear that. It's possible that he was thanking her for acknowledging his request.

I am totally unsure. I have nothing but loose speculation to pull me through here...I am definitely not above acceding that any subjective perception I have presented thus far could be totally out to sea. (I`m definitely mistaken more often than I`m correct)


"He should have asked:
How many victims?
Is anyone in danger now?
How many Perps? Just one? 3? Their names?
Is he armed?
When is he expected back?
Where is he now so we can arrest this POS scumbag?"

I agree.

I think everyone is posting out their asses.
For all we know there might have been 6 lines on hold waiting for someone @ 911 to answer and he needed to move on to them. Or not. we don't know.

As for the dumbass "atheist" comment, No comment.
