She called the wrong number.  She wanted 1-800-AMBULANCE, but called 1-800-AMBUSHME instead.

None of this makes any sense. I think we need to wait for the Hallmark Channel to show us what REALLY happened in their upcoming movie-of-the-week, SugarDaddy.

jjorsett: Another example of why cops should be required to wear video recording devices. Both to protect themselves against false accusations and to expose the ones that abuse their powers.

Plus all the upskirt shots they'll record.

Announcer: Has this ever happened to you?
(Shows an old lady falling down from the top of the the stair, getting up and the falling down another flight of stairs to the ground floor.)
Announcer: From today, dialling 999 won't get you the emergency services. And that's not the only thing that's changing. Nicer ambulances, faster response times and better-looking drivers mean they're not just "the" emergency services - they're "your" emergency services. So, remember the new number:
Announcer: [singing number]: 0118 999 881 999 119 725...3
Announcer: That's...
Announcer: [singing number]: 0118 999 881 999 119 725...3
Old Woman: Hello, I've had a bit of a tumble...
(Shows that Moss is sat there watching the advert)
 Moss: Well, that's easy to remember! [singing number] 0118 999 881 999 119 725...3

Bill_Wick's_Friend: Ed's Wood: So you'd be cool w/ every facet of your job being recorded & at any moment's notice,  you can be reviewed by a panel of people who aren't trained in your profession, have no idea what it's like to be in your profession & their sole purpose is to use calm, 20/20 hindsight in the safety of a tv monitor to judge how you reacted in the heat of an intense moment where you potentially feared for your own life as well as that of your team's?

The guy I do most of my consulting for can do all of that by checking IT records, listening to my calls if he wants, checking my work logs etc.  If he wants to stand over my desk (or hire someone to stand over my desk) and watch me work then that's his choice to do so, since he pays the bills.

If you work for the public?  Yeah, cops shouldn't have a problem with the public looking over their shoulder to make sure they're not corrupt, violent, abusive, failing the public trust etc.  Given that so very many cops DO seem to be violent, abusive and happy to violate the public's trust (and that for every bad cop there must be at least five to ten other cops who know their co-worker is bad but who say nothing due to the blue wall of silence) it doesn't seem at all unreasonable to want some close scrutiny on their actions.

/this post may be recorded for quality assurance

Because we  know there's no better source of objectivity than John Q. Public who spends all day and evening watching C.O.P.S. and major media for determining right and wrong with regards to split-second decisions involving life and death.

I mean, it's not like this thread is  full of mouth-breathing imbeciles who label anyone and everyone with a badge as a "pig" who wouldn't hesitate to ignore all reasoning and common sense just to "stick it to the man."

Good call, champ. People can't even read a farking news article and articulate  the stated facts correctly, and you think they should be deciding matters like police action. Guffaw.

Sin_City_Superhero: The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is reviewing the shooting and the officers involved are on paid leave.

Good news, folks...the police are investigating the police officers that are responsible for this. If the police determine that the police officers were out of line, then the police are sure to dicipline the police officers responsible.

Oafmeel: yet another deadly unregistered diabetic. How long until we ban diabetes altogether?

The only solution is to give EVERYONE diabetes.

/pretty sure the food industry is already on that like white on high fructose rice syrup.
