    As found here.

    Thoughts anybody?

    I find it wrong for TMZ to post this EXTREMELY emotional 911 call. You can hear how err.. panic-y Brittany's mom is. Idk, that's what I think.

    Horrible, but she was dead already about 1 minute into the call.

    What does that prove?

    Anyway, I think it's wrong. Why are panick/distraught 911 calls made public? I'd only want it heard by others during a police investigation, or a court case. Otherwise, they should ask for permission. Some people are not in a healthy state of mind when they make those calls.

    I've never understood why people would want to listen to those calls. I avoid them if at all possible.

    I believe they're considered 'public record' as long as there's nothing considered confidential in them.

    I wont listen to it. I get sick thinking about what if i had to call 911 because my daughter was dying.

    Id like to see what they think if a TMZ employee's family member was dying and they called 911, and somebody plastered it all over the internet.

    Everyone at TMZ should have been shot years ago. F***ing bloodsuckers.

    I agree. The sad part is, the American consumer eats this **** up. Look how many celebrity shows are on TV. Sad.

    At least my Apple obsession is healthy. :rolleyes:

    I've never heard of this happening before. Thought such calls were private. I'm sure they're covered by the Data Protection Act in the UK. What's TMZ?

    No, I wouldn't listen to it.

    I thinks it's wrong that they were able to find this... and post it. I was curious but could only listen to about the first 10-15 seconds before I felt like I was invading someones privacy.

    There are very few things I dislike more than TMZ.
