Police Misconduct

Wow: A police officer refuses to handle the repeated 911 calls of a panicked young woman as her father has a seizure on the kitchen floor. Why? She used the f-word to express her frustration — before the officer even answered the call. He scolds her, refuses to hear about her emergency, hangs up on her repeatedly, delays calling for rescue, lies about the calls, and then arrests the poor girl.

Based on this report, the officer ought to be fired, not merely suspended and trained. He behaved infamously — in a way thoroughly inexcusable to a police officer in a free society — not merely once but repeatedly. (Via The Agitator.)
