911 Operator Has A Bad Day

It was worse for the person that needed assistance.

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/07/30/us/albuquerque-911-dispatcher-matthew-sanchez-resigns.html?&moduleDetail=section-news-4&action=click&contentCollection=U.S.&region=Footer&module=MoreInSection&version=WhatsNext&contentID=WhatsNext&pgtype=article

“O.K., you know what ma’am?” Mr. Sanchez says. “You can deal with this yourself. I’m not going to deal with this, O.K.?” Ms. Quintero responds that her “friend is dying” before the phone call is terminated.

Can he be charged with anything like failure of duty of care or something like that? Hanging up on her was despicable.

I had to call 911 the other week. They were totally inept. I had to spend 3 minutes spelling the name of the street over and over again because they kept spelling it Roan instead of Ronan. I remember thinking if someone were breaking in and not just being weird in the backyard I would be in serious trouble now.
