luckily I haven't had to call 911 often, but it's good to know one of the first things they might ask me is if the situation involves a white or black person.
That was a bit weird, sure.
But I can't believe that it took almost 5 minutes for the guy to finally discern that a car needs to be sent out...especially when the neighbor explained 'domestic abuse' and 'cut on the head requiring stitches' right in the beginning!
I think the dispatcher handled it perfectly. I think the neighbor handled it very well.
Nobody was frantic. He heard her talking in the background. The neighbor told the dispatcher that she was OK and that it was only a cut. Since she was at the neighbors house and safe the dispute was already over with.
They police have to get a description of the alleged perp. That involves knowing what the color of skin is. He also asked what he was wearing and what car he was driving.
