    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minneapolis Police have released transcripts of two calls that were made prior to the death of Australian woman Justine Damond, moments before she was shot and killed by an officer. The transcripts show she called twice, first reporting her concern that she heard sex noises and a woman yelling help. “I’m not sure if she’s having sex or being raped,” the transcript says Damond told the operator. “I think she just yelled out ‘help,’ but it’s difficult the sound has been going on for a while, but I think, I don’t think she’s enjoying it.” WEB EXTRA:...

    CBS This Morning on Tuesday did the bidding of the ACLU and expressed concern over an Alabama mega church lobbying to have its own police force. Showing a clueless attitude in the wake of the 2015 Charleston church shooting, reporter David Begnaud asked Greg Garrison of AL.com: “Why can't they just rely on 911 and call for help if they need it?”
  • Emergency Dispatchers, 911 operators here?

    12/18/2016 8:17:24 PM PST · by rey · 28 replies
    Are there any first responder dispatchers or 911 operators on this site? I have been told these can be well paying jobs but that many services have difficulty keeping the positions manned. Is this true? I understand these can be stressful positions. Would you consider my time as a forward observer in the Marine Corps appropriate experience for such a position? It required proper radio procedure often under stressful conditions. Any other info you may think is pertinent is appreciated.

    A former 911 operator is facing charges after she allegedly confessed to hanging up on callers. According to KPRC, 43-year-old Crenshanda Williams has been charged with interference with an emergency telephone call. Court documents allege that Williams was involved in thousands of “short calls,” or 911 calls that last 20 seconds or less. In fact, KPRC reports that Williams even hung up on a man who was reporting a deadly shooting at a convenience store. When questioned about the calls, she allegedly admitted to hanging up on callers “because she did not want to talk to anyone at that time.”

    Using a network of hacked smartphones, attackers could overwhelm a whole state's 911 system with endless calls, shutting out a huge portion of legitimate callers. The approach, known as a denial of service attack, "is a significant threat to the availability of 911 service," wrote researchers Mordechai Guri, Yisroel Mirsky and Yuval Elovici in the paper. The researchers looked at the state of North Carolina and created a model based on its 911 system. In the US, emergency response systems are run at the state or local level. If hackers compromised 6,000 smartphones with malicious software, they could make enough...

    Orlando gunman Omar Mateen identified himself as an Islamic soldier in calls with authorities during his rampage and demanded to a crisis negotiator that the U.S. “stop bombing Syria and Iraq,” according to transcripts released by the FBI on Monday. The partial, printed transcripts were of three conversations Mateen had with the police during the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, in which 49 people died and dozens were wounded. Those communications, along with Facebook posts Mateen made before and after the shooting, add to the public understanding of the final hours of Mateen’s life. The first call came...

    The Department of Justice redacted Islam and ISIS from the Orlando jihadi’s transcript. But even so, it is riddled with Islam. It reads like a Muslim prayer session. In other words, it is all he spoke of. His very first words are the Bismillah “In the name of Allah”), the Islamic prayer. It’s what terror-tied CAIR chants in every press conference and press release.

    A few stunning aspects stick out from the carefully released partial and redacted transcript from the Orlando terrorist attack. The manner of release affirms the earlier outlines and concerns surrounding AG Loretta Lynch and the Obama Administration: First – this release proves law enforcement, the FBI and the Obama administration knew the motive and intent was Islamic terrorism from the very first second contact was made. When LEO stepped up to the first media press conference they knew it was an Islamic terrorist attack. ◾ Second – this release confirms allegiance with ISIS proclaimed in the specific manner that is...

    The Department of Justice is scrubbing references of radical Islamic beliefs from the transcripts of calls Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen made to police during his massacre, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Sunday. A partial transcript of the conversations between authorities and Mateen, who killed 49 and wounded 53 in the June 12 attack at a Florida gay nightclub, is set to be released on Monday. But Lynch, who appeared on numerous Sunday talk shows, said the transcripts will not include Mateen's oath of loyalty to ISIS or any other religious justification for the attack.

    The White House on Monday blamed the Justice Department for the decision to redact references to radical Islamic terrorists from transcripts of the Orlando shooter’s telephone conversations with police. The White House did not provide guidance to the Justice Department or participate in the censorship of the transcripts, which were released earlier in the day, said press secretary Josh Earnest. “All of the decisions about releasing the transcripts were made by Justice Department officials,” he said at the daily press briefing at the White House.

    The Department of Justice and the FBI has released the unredacted version of the Orlando shooter’s 911 call after tons of outcry for redacting references to ISIS. Republicans by the score ripped the White House over politically correct concerns, and Paul Ryan demanded the unredacted version be released. Here’s the full transcript, without the omissions: OD: Emergency 911, this is being recorded. OM: In the name of God the Merciful, the beneficent [Arabic] OD: What? OM: Praise be to God, and prayers as well as peace be upon the prophet of God [Arabic]. I wanna let you know, I’m in...

    The gunman who opened fire at a gay Florida nightclub early Sunday, shooting over 100 people, had called 911 moments before to pledge allegiance to the leader of ISIS, law enforcement sources told NBC News. But as investigators try to determine if extremism motivated Omar Mateen, 29, to attack the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, his family believes he was pushed over the edge by pure hate against the LGBT community.

    A Georgia homeowner shot in the neck after police went to the wrong house has died, a lawyer for the family said Friday. William Powell, 63, died Thursday afternoon at Atlanta Medical Center, attorney Keith Martin said. A preliminary review of the 911 call indicates the three officers who responded had gone to the wrong home and showed up at Powell's house, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said. Powell was armed with a gun and was shot in the neck by one of the officers, authorities said. He had grabbed the gun for protection, not knowing who might be outside...

    A Detroit woman phoned 911 and got a not-so-smooth operator. Angie Butler said she couldn't get a clueless 911 operator to send a cop to her home while an armed man stood on her porch. The Michigan mom got a knock on her door at 2:30 a.m. Thursday night by a man with a gun, claiming to be a cop. "He's out here saying he's the police and he's wearing an orange jumpsuit, like a prison jumpsuit," Butler told local network ClickOn Detroit. But, the plea for help fell on deaf ears. "So I call 911 and say, 'I've got...

    A shopper perusing the merchandise at the Redwood Country Flea Market was so offended by a vendor selling Confederate and Nazi historical memorabilia, the person actually called 911. Wallingford, Connecticut police were dispatched to the flea market to investigate. The police chief William Wright tells News 8 “the reason no one was arrested was because the items were being sold on private property” — not to mention no laws were broken. “There was a table set up with this material,” Wright says, according to Journal-Record. “It’s not criminally illegal, but obviously it offended this person. It causes some people a...

    An elderly man who'd just returned home after months in the hospital said he was hungry, had no food and no one to turn to for help. So he dialed 911. "I can't do anything. I can't go anywhere. I can't get out of my damn chair." Clarence Blackmon, 81, of Fayetteville, North Carolina, told the 911 operator, according to ABC station WTVD in Durham. "I said, 'I'm not broken, I'm not bleeding, and I'm not in crisis. I just want somebody to help me buy some food,'" he told ABC News.

    An officer from Los Angeles County took to Twitter on Friday when Facebook users called for help to report that the social media website was down. Sgt. Burton Brink, the public information officer in La Crescenta, CA, posted a Tweet reminding people about the reasons for calling them for help. "#Facebook is not a Law Enforcement issue, please don't call us about it being down, we don't know when FB will be back up!" he wrote. Users who tried to get on Facebook around noon EST were greeted with an apology. "Sorry, something went wrong. We're working on getting this...

    An emergency dispatcher who made disparaging remarks about Oprah Winfrey during the Maya Angelou 911 call has been suspended. John Ruckh was heard on the 911 tape saying that Oprah, a friend of Angelou's had "fallen out of grace" after a controversial interview in which Oprah expressed her thoughts about race in America. "Unfortunately, I work in a high-profile job and everything's recorded," Ruckh told the Winston-Salem Journal. "This is in no way a racial slur, slander, associated conversation ... I really hate that this happened at the time that it did, because this is taking away from Maya Angelou's...

    Three months after making an open records request for a 911 call originating from LeRoy Carhart’s Germantown Reproductive Health Services abortion clinic on November 26, 2013, Operation Rescue has finally received a 911 recording from the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service indicating that the patient was hemorrhaging from complications to a late-term abortion. In addition to taking weeks beyond the statutory deadlines to comply with Operation Rescue’s open record request, the recording was heavily redacted, omitting information that has previously been obtainable by the public, indicating a policy change that actively protects the abortion clinic. “While the Maryland Public...
