911 Makes A Joke

911 Dispatcher Reprimanded Over Wisecrack
A 911 dispatcher was reprimanded for responding to a mother's plea for help with an unruly child by saying: "OK. Do you want us to come over to shoot her?" "I admit what I did. It was stupid, it was inexcusable and I'm sorry," said dispatcher Mike Forbess.
No, it was honest and quick witted. Anyone who calls 911 over their child's "unruliness" is taking advantage of limited resources and is not thinking. Give Forbess a promotion!
