That was long ago and failed because I could not type as fast as required by the job. And after this video, I am suddenly happy I did not get it or I would have gone crazy.
LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — The Henderson Police Department released body camera video regarding the recent officer-involved shooting.
On October 21, 2019, at 12:11 p.m., the Henderson Police Department responded to the 10000 block of S. Eastern Avenue about a 911 disconnect call.
In the video, officers arrived at the residence and found a 7-year-old boy with stab wounds and an agitated woman, identified as 37-year-old Claudia Nadia Rodriguez.
A struggled ensued between Rodriguez and the officer, which resulted in the use of deadly force.
Sweet God, I’d be a full blown alcoholic if I had to deal with calls like that every day. Imagine hearing people having their worse day in their lives calling you for help and you must remain cool, professional and fight every instinct you have to drop everything and go help. And yes, they are sending help in the most efficient manner, but still the need to be hands-on helping must be overwhelming, specially when it is a child begging on the other side of the phone line.
911 Operators have my absolute respect.
