    I don’t like that operator at all. She called so she can get HELP. This made me cry because the poor lady was apologizing and kept saying “I’m scared” and it left me in tears.

    That dispatcher doesn’t deserve their forgiveness that wasn’t the woman’s fault and even if it was her job is to help people not tell them to shut up

    Dispatcher: “this will teach you next time don’t drive in the water” Because of her there is no next time. That dispatcher shouldn’t work for the police. Tells her to shut up, tells her it’s all her fault, asks her how she couldn’t see it. Imagine “shut up” being the last words you hear. Yes it is her fault she’s in the water, but she didn’t do it on purpose. Also, maybe her eyes weren’t the best.

    I hope that that dispacher is not working their anymore. She lacked compassion. She should be in jail tbh.

    I don’t know how anyone could forgive someone like that. As a police officer your job is too help people in need. She could have prevented her death, but instead wasted valuable time saying how next time she shouldn’t drive in the water.

    That 911 dispatcher doesn't deserve forgiveness. She is an uncompassionate POS who deserves jail time even if caller didn't die. May she suffer from the guilt of her actions the rest of her life.

    Nah man, the operator should be placed in a water tank with her limbs tied up and the water rising, she can scream for help and a speaker will tell her to shut up as she slowly drowns.
