Black Lives 911 Operator Charged for Hanging Up on Callers

There are just some jobs you really don’t want to slack off at.

You’d think that someone who takes a job as a 911 call operator would understand the seriousness of the job, but apparently not Black Lives Matter member Crenshanda Williams. A number of people almost lost their lives thanks to her (but I suppose since they weren’t black lives she didn’t care?).

As Breitbart reported:

The now-former 911 operator, Crenshanda Williams, 43, is facing misdemeanor charges of Interference with an Emergency Telephone Call, according to court records obtained from the website of Harris County District Clerk Chris Daniel. Williams was charged after hanging up on a caller in March 2016 who was reporting a robbery, according to the criminal complaint.

Houston police officers began investigating Williams in April after complaints were received from callers being hung up on by a 911 operator. HEC Director David Cutler and HEC Center Division Manager James Wheeler, provided documentation to Detective David Vasquez detailing Williams’ history of hanging up on incoming callers seeking emergency assistance, court records revealed.

The supervisors reported that Williams had an “abnormally large number of ‘short calls’” with a duration of 20 seconds or less. The HEC uses a system called MagIC to log all calls into the center. It records each call processed by the operators and can tell whether the call was disconnected by the caller or operator. The MagIC database report shows “thousands of short calls” that were attributed to Williams between October 2015 and March 2016. Williams began working for the HEC as a 911 operator in July 2014.

Houston Police specified two incidents, alleging that in both cases Williams intentionally hung up on the emergency callers. Back in March, a man identified as Hua Li dialed 911 at 8:10 p.m. to report an armed robbery.
Li had walked into a store that evening to buy lottery tickets. He heard someone yelling that there was a robbery and saw a man with a gun. Li counted five to six gunshots, then got into his car and drove away, as he tried to call for help. Williams immediately hung up on Li’s first call, according to the charging documents.
And that wasn’t all.
The second incident specified by Houston Police occurred on the same exact day as the previously mentioned incident when  a driver attempted to report trucks racing on the highway.
The driver identified himself and began telling her, “I’m driving 45 South right now and right now, I am at …” While the driver  was mid-sentence, the call disconnected. That was when Williams was heard complaining on the recording that she didn’t have time.
While the Houston PD specified two incidents, there was a third where a man tried to call the police when his wife passed out following a heart attack.

Hopefully she’s soon reunited with many of her other Black Lives Matter friends – in prison.
