ugh i hate american cops. in canada the ambulance would have been sent, THEN the 911 guy would have figured out what was wrong, and chastised the girl.

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.

I am outraged, but somehow not surprised this happened in lovely Lincoln Park.

That is crazy, and I will not go further into it because I'd rather not get too worked up tonight.

Just talked about this with my mum, she's totally on the policeman's side. o_O WTF?

The guy shouldn't have focused on the swearing, he should be listening to the problem and helping her. What a d!ck.

He hangs up on her for swearing, and then calls her an 'stupid ass'.
I mean, I know f*ck is stronger than ass, but still.

Hypocritical much?

What an non-nice individual. And he didn't even make an attempt to explain himself, or apologize, or anything. What. An. non-nice individual.

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.

je scream, what the cop did was illegal not to mention unethical... he denied help. he is a civil servant and it is his job to serve and protect. i have absolutely nothing against cops because i have many in my family but what he did was by far the wrong thing to do. my mother is a 911 operator and you dont do something like that. he can also be fired for unprofessionalism by cursing at the girl. hes wrong, thats that.

I would've thought if you rang back several times you would get a different operator, it must be really unlucky to get the same one.

I'd love to have an intelligent conversation about it yes, but the fact of the matter is your opinion on what went on is completely moronic. You speak as if the girl shouldn't really give two craps about the condition of her father, she is going to be panicing, as i said if you expect her to be calm in the first place, then you are wrong.. But if you expect her to calm down when the police officer mocks her.. "stupid a*s" i believe.. You are simply moronic. A normal person in normal circumstances would be wound up if someone spoke to them like that so it's going to be a hundred times worse if your father is lying on the kitchen floor, having a fit.. Probably the scariest thing he could be doing other than bleeding massively.. The fact is you say she should have calmed down, so of course the cop was just going to ignore the cry for help.. And for that reason, your view is idiotic.

Je Scream, I find your posts ignorant and naive. Not to mention, for being a self proclaimed "writer," your grammar along with your spelling are horrible. However, it's your views on the matter that disgust me; it is an emergency situation and cops are obligated to a certain degree by their decision to become a police officer to "serve and protect" our citizens. However, "The affirmative duty to protect arises not from the State's knowledge of the individual's predicament or from its expressions of intent to help him, but from the limitation which it has imposed on his freedom to act on his own behalf." - DeShaney v. Winnebago County Department of Social Services The problem here is, you said you listened to video more than once, did you notice that the young girl did not have a chance to explain her situation? Being a cop, Sgt. McFarland should know how to remain calm himself, and asses the situation and not lose his temper and try to give a lesson on ma

There are arguments on both sides, for one, a cop should NEVER hang up on someone if they are giving them attitude... It is ridiculous, it is their problem, if they're offended by what your doing, not the Police's. I mean, if a crack addict rings up in a drug induced stupor, and is swearing, and threatening the police, let's say he has a friend who has ODed, it is the police/medical service's duty to deal with the person on a medical basis, and not cast aspursions. That being said, it was stupid of her to continue to swear at the police, when clearly, he was going to hang up again. I think in this case, though, she was too freaked out for that to process.... I mean no one would sacrifice their father's life to swear at a policeman.

Well, I guess you're just gonna believe what you want. But I speak as someone's who has been in a very similar situation; I'm not just saying all this just to say it. I've been in the situation where I didn't get the right immediate care for my mom and when I even began to raise my voice the nurses would threaten to call the hospital police to arrest me for pretty much the same thing as this girl. But I always backed down, and apologized because no matter what YOU'RE the needy person in the situation so lose the attitude. And hon, I've been around enough teenage girls to tell what a 'scrapping' 'what you say to me?' attitude voice sounds like. TRUST ME! And that's what she's got. lol, @ people that actually think that's what scared sounds like. When you're scared for your parent, there's nothing to describe it...you're like hysterically crying to the point you can't even speak cause you're broken. I think she let her anger get the best of her. That's how I feel.

"I'm not saying what the cop did was right, what I'm mostly saying is that the girl got what she was asking for. She chose to let her anger rule her actions and she got what she put out. Why would one think you can get somewhere by cursing someone out? It's like what do you expect? Common decency and overall manners are slowly deminishing and it's scary how I'm the only one that seems to have a problem with that."

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 have worked in a call center since the age of 16...i am 24 going on 25 right now. Even in the call centers I have worked in (nothing as serious as 911) we are trained to NEVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES hang up on the person calling because we have no idea what thier problem may be. Hanging up on a caller is grounds for termination. There is no write up, there is no warning, no suspension, no re-training. You get fired. It is our job to answer the phone and help the person on the other end. We're trained to handle prank calls, perverts, foreign languages, beligerence...you name it. What this SHERRIF did is UNACCEPTABLE. It doesnt matter if the girl souned like she "wanted to scrap" - it was his job to take that call, he failed to do his job
