If I talked to a customer like that on the phone I would be FIRED. This trooper messed up bigtime.

Get informed on issues affecting the right to keep and bear arms and other civil rights.

He should have been fired

Obviously there are bad apples in any profession. This guy is a clear example.

Remember that in most states dispatchers arenot officers. They may have their own training, but are not LEOs.

I fail to see how civil rights comes into play.

Previous point stands.

"The union felt the suspension was too severe".

Good God.

Re: Civil Rights.

"Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." Kind of hard to pursue happiness, life or liberty when you are splattered over the highway and the mope at 911 thinks it's a joke.

I don't advocate his firing as he probably has a family that depends on this fat head. He would be cleaning toilets with a toothbrush for a good long while while writing 10,000 times "I will look up compassion in the dictionary" :banghead:
and 20,000 times, "What I do is a reflection on my brother troopers". :banghead:

Bobarino, It's all over the news. Kid crashes cycle. Friend calls 911 and calls for help. Trooper says "Too bad" and hangs up. Another friend calls. Trooper chides her and lectures her and tells her to quit fooling around, hangs up. 3rd caller gets different 911 operator. Sends help. Kid dies a week later.

Trooper get suspended for two weeks and union says the punishment is too harsh. OY.

Personally I'd like to see a little pinata therapy.

PMDW; "So.. where do firearms come into play?" "You don't need that nasty gun to defend yourself because you can always call 911." (and be ignored) That's my take on it, YMMV.

"'I will look up compassion in the dictionary'"

Let's start with basic COMPETENCE. He has none.

The guy is a disgrace as a trooper. He's expendable and the union should know better than to shill for him. :barf:

It will make a LOVELY civil suit. $$$$$$$$$ :eek:

Typical. Us vs. Them mentality at work.

Definitely something to remember the next time someone tells you that civilized people just dial 911, but I'm going to close this one anyway.

The audio is absolutely shocking--it pulls you up short the first time you hear it! More dangerous than this guy, though, are the ones who are thinking what he was dumb enough to say out loud.

Obviously neither group is very widely represented in 911 call centers.
