I forgot it's also standard operating procedure for dispatchers to stay on the line with victims.
Yahoo's The Lookout reports:
Cleveland officials are investigating the handling of a call from kidnapping victim Amanda Berry to 911 on Monday.Of course, again because this is not a market, there is no market feedback mechanism, the dispatcher won't lose a cent, nor will his employer. If a private company was handling this call and treated one of their customers this way they would have issued a full apology and likely fired the man in question. People could switch providers and stop using the company's services, there would be actual consequences and it would hurt their bottom line. When the monopolist state gets called out for it's incompetence and terrible "service," they just say they'll "review" the incident to placate the public, then continue with business as usual.
