Most likely another affirmative action hire. Completely incompetent but they know they will never be fired.
911 dispatcher tells caller stop whining after fatal Maryland accident - Yahoo News
feb 5 2015
(Reuters) - An incident in which a 911 emergency dispatcher told a young caller to "stop whining" after her father was struck and killed by a car along a Maryland highway while changing a flat tire is under investigation, a fire official said on Thursday.
The incident took place on Sunday night when Rick Warrick, 38, of Washington, and his fiancée were taking his teenage children to dinner. The car got a flat tire on Interstate 295 near Baltimore and Warrick and his fiancée were struck by a vehicle while changing the tire. The vehicle sped away.
In the 911 call released on Tuesday, a girl tells the dispatcher her father and his fiancée were lying motionless by the side of the road.
"OK, let's stop whining. OK, let's stop whining. It's hard to understand you ... two people were struck, correct?" the dispatcher says.
