    Most emergency calls are emergency but a lot of ambulance calls are for stupid crap. That's probably what the policeman though it was. Which is where sensitivity training comes in. The policeman was being very unprofessional and needlessly ruthless. He should have focused on the emergency.

    But the girl didn't make it better. She was being very hostile. How much effort does it take to tell them what's wrong rather than demanding an ambulance like that while insulting them?

    Fined? The man should be fired. I mean, yea I get it no one likes to be sworn too, but he didnt once ask what was wrong. She could have been shitting bricks because someone was trying to stab her.

    I can imagine that in a scary movie

    "911 whats your emergency?"

    "Jesus fucking christ send some help now!"

    "Ma'am there is no need for that language"

    Stab, dead!

    Right there, Hollywood gold.

    He should be disciplined and she is 17, no expectations of adult behaviour, she thought her dad was dieing, quite calm considering.

    Very good points.
    If she had been worried, seriously worried, she wouldn't have been snide with the officer (and by snide i'm referring to her response to him telling her not to use foul language), she would have done what it took to get an ambulance.


    If my mom was having a seizure on the floor and I called 911 to get an ambulance, they'd told me to take off all of my clothing and do jumping jacks, I would have if it meant getting an ambulance faster. It's part of the job to determine the nature of the emergency, and obscene language does not help in any way.

    At the start of the article they explain she called, then hung up, then called again? Sounds like this article is specifcally biased against the officer...especially after hearing her threaten his job.

    Her first concern should be her dad.

    Horrible kid.

    my friend realized his house had been broken into and called 911, they told him it wasn't an emergency because it wasn't happening at the moment and gave him a bunch of shit.

    i dialed 0 and asked for the police cause these kids were breaking a window on someone's car. they told me to call 911, i said it's not really an emergency could i please just have the number to the police, they said just call 911. so i left cause i didn't feel like sitting around talking to police and they'd def. blame me if i was there when they showed up.

    they don't make any damn sense.

    No. The officer hung up on her (twice), then she called him back (twice).

    WOW! Given the severity of the situation and the way the cop of 20 something years handled himself, in reality, he should be fired.

    Are you telling me that a cop vet lost his cool over a 17 year old girl who dropped the F-bomb who was freaking out because she thought her dad was on the floor dying? It's only natural for anyone to be hysterical over something like this especially when they aren't getting any help when calling 911, a number specifically used to get help. This cop is a FAIL.

    To make matters worse he hung up on her, then he confronted her with vulgarity. WHAT! A cop on 911 confronting a 17 year old girl with vulgarity. He called a stupid bitch and then hung up again. He then tries to make it seem like he was assaulted we filing the report.

    He's lucky he only got suspended. He's lucky the girls father didn't die. She has every right to sue this cop and the city for the poor quality and service she got from this particular cop.

    41 seconds in.
    we're listening to the second and subsequent calls.
    If I was answering the phone, had someone call, hang up, then call right back, I'd be on the offensive as well.

    "She got no quick answer, so hung up and tried again."

    I take that to mean no one answered the phone so she hung up and redialed.

    I agree, but as a 20 year VETERAN in terms of experience as a POLICE officer with several commendations and TRAINING should he not sought to get to the matter of the EMERGENCY rather than concentrating on her immaturity and language. So, if I am trained office to handle EMERGENCY 911 calls..TRAINING right should I have not spotted this in my TRAINING and EXPERIENCE on how to handle it, and superseded to get to the matter of why she needed an ambulance. There are ways to handle this kind of calls and most importantly he failed miserably. Then he arrested her with no law on the book for such. I mean this is the perfect case for a lawyer I mean it does not get any better than this.

    The worst part is that he really screwed up and he has no remorse of what he did or comment probably because of a lawsuit in question, but even an apology to her and her father would go a long way to some degree, it does not excuse his actions.

    What would have happen if her father had died?

    it's a moot point really.
    I agree mistakes were made, especially as the incident continues, but I have trouble getting this worked up over someone having an off day at work. Lord knows I have them often enough.

    It's 911.

    Part of the requirement for being a 911 operator is handling all kinds of people, languages and pressure. That is actually in the job description. This guy is a cop so he should all ready know better and know how to handle hostile situations without being hostile himself so he is already in the wrong regardless of how this girl is acting on the phone.

    people have off days at work all the time but when you provide that kind of service to where people's life at stake you really can't afford to have those kind of days. No matter how you look at this situation the cop was in the wrong...period.

    Ah, he does say 'answers'. I suppose it's still reasonable for her to hang up and redial in the hopes of reaching a different operator.

    If her father had died I would have hopes she would learn to listen to an officer of the law and do what she was told, instead of exacerbating the situation.

    go turn on your Tv. Flip it over to Cops. it's on, somewhere...it's always on.Watch the cops approach situations. First thing they always do is try to figure out whats going on. You'll notice something else. You'll be hard pressed for a single officer to sit there, in an emergency situation and let the person ramble on cursing left and right instead of being clear, concise and direct with whats occuring, so they can provide the proper assitance.

    I suppose it is reasonable...but wouldn't it be easier to take a deep breath and stop saying the eFF word? especially when she has an operator right there to help her father...it's not about her, it's about her father.

    i find it difficult to believe her acting the concerned and outraged child ...who will minutes later just leave her father, not to get an ambulance, but to file a report against the 911 operator.
