911 isn't a "Have questions or complaints?" line, people.
What a silly Gumbo!
I thought it's illegal to call 911 for non-emergencies?
apparently not in haltom city.
If you're going to call an emergency number, at least have the decency to cause an emergency first.
This reminds me when I was younger, the day this kid named Mike called the cops because his mom wouldn't let him have a coke with dinner...
I can understand a kid doing this kind of thing. But a grown woman?
Maybe that is the real reason why the operator promised to send an officer
They really should have stiff penalties for dialing 911 with no legitimate emergency.
Heart attack? Car accident? Of course dial 911.
House ransacked while away? Found spray paint on your car? Best dial local cops directly, but 911 is forgivable.
No shrimp? No lemonade? Out of McNuggets? Need help on cooking turkey? Do NOT dial 911.
*puts phone down*
1. Build fire.
2. Put turkey in fire.
3. Pour gasoline on fire.
4. Light fire.
... ok, now you can call 911...
-Get a huge pot of hot oil
-Put a frozen turkey in it
I agree do not call 911, use the sawed-off shotgun to show your displeasure at McDonalds.
Where's My Scrimps!!!!!!!!!
That is just unbelievable.
I wonder how often these dumbasses stop genuine calls getting through,or slow down emergency response teams.
All I have to say.
Octomom is soooo silly.....
I took this as a sarcastic comment in the article...
I don't get why the 911 operator could not put the woman on hold and go on to do her job.
Was she afraid of the woman being a nut-job and perhaps needing to be arrested to maybe forestall a post-office type activity?
Something is very wrong here.
911 is important to all of us. we need to have the best people working on the phones!
i'd like to throw a chair at that lady...
Because if you give the 911 operators the ability to decide whether a 911 call is truly an emergency or not, then you open yourself up to some huge risks. What if an operator judges incorrectly, and someone dies as a result? The damages would be huge.
I think they *should* send a cop out to meet every 911 caller. And if someone's life or livelihood wasn't just saved, then out comes the ticket book. Or handcuffs.
Yup, definitely a NON-emergency situation which involves calling a non-emergency number...
We need some more chlorine in the gene pool...
