(RepublicanDaily.org) – If you’ve ever found yourself in a position where you had to call 911, you may have marveled at the relaxed, collected demeanor of the person on the other end of the phone. Despite the stress of their position, they can hold it together and dispatch the relevant help to you because that’s their job. However, a dispatcher in New Orleans is now in trouble with police after she hung up on a series of callers without explanation.
Precious Stephens, 25, reportedly failed to collect or relay any information before disconnecting several emergency calls. She now faces charges of interfering with emergency communications and malfeasance.
