Police: Slain student apparently dialed 911; help not sent


origin.twincities.com

A college student apparently called 911 from her cell phone shortly before she was killed but a dispatcher hung up, failed to call back and never sent police to investigate, authorities said Thursday.
Madison Police Chief Noble Wray said it was too early to know whether a better response could have prevented the April 2 slaying of Wisconsin-Madison student Brittany Zimmermann or helped police capture her killer.
Authorities refused to release the content of the phone call, but Wray said it should have been enough for the Dane County 911 Center to take it seriously.

Many police seem to be more concerned about non-violent drug-offenders, than people, who are in desperate need of help. Brittany Zimmermann is 1 of many people, who haven't received enough help from the police after requesting it (in my post (above) there are Additional links to articles about 2 other cases like Miss Zimmermann's).




"It would be accurate to state that there is evidence contained in the call, which should have resulted in a Madison police officer being dispatched," Wray said at a news conference. "The 911 center did not call back to the telephone number, Madison police were not notified and no officer was sent."

Nothing will happen except maybe the dispatcher getting reprimanded for breaking policy. The Supreme Court has ruled and upheld that the government police have no obligation to provide protection.

It appears the article has been changed since posted. They now state there was dead air on her end. If true it probably wouldn't have made a difference if the cell phone had E911 or something. Probably already dead.

Thanks for sharing the truth & your opinions. I see what you mean. I'm saddened by the way those judges make rulings against common folks, every year.

The cops probably get federal grant money for busting non-violent druggies. They get nothing for busting rapists and predators.

Women are still second-class citizens. How often have we heard 'oh she dressed like a slut and probably deserved or brought on the rape, herself'?

Lots of people still think of rape as a sex crime, but it's primarly a crime of violence and control.

It's pretty obvious that a lot of 911 operators are passive aggressive. They deal with the public and soon begin to hate the public, imo. You hear about this kind of thing too often.

If the authorities had any sense, they'd rotate the 911 operators to other jobs to keep this from happening. Monitor their calls and when they start playing games with the callers, asking stupid questions and delaying things or dragging their feet during the call, rotate them out and re-train them.

2 cents.

I understand you. You're right. Lazy police officers should either be retrained or retire.
