  1. What the 911 operator did wasn't criminal but what should happen to her should be! Trump didn't break any tax laws, he claims, but he has certainly lowered the bar of what is considered as decency! Or is this just typical of people in Arkansas? Both, right?

  2. If Trump Tariffs are anything like Trump Steaks this RECESSION is going to leave a VERY BAD TASTE in the mouths of millions of Americans! 
    Save the republic. Impeach the Imbecile in the Oval Office NOW!

  3. I don't trust so called coalitions against "Americans only supporting Americans". They're backed by Christian hating countries wanting our God given back bone.

  4. The 911 operator should fear for her life! Like she made Debbie fear for her life! This woman will be found and dealt with.

  5. well with the tariffs in the biggest shopping day of the year maybe people will get smart and stop buying junk and wasting our money at Christmas and Thanksgiving and pay their bills instead and maybe people will start doing what they're supposed to do instead of wasting money because Christmas and God he'd rather you not buy all that junk it's never about God it's about giving money to the corporations

  6. well the police didn't seem too concerned about this dispatcher and her evil attitude and then the woman passes away you disgusting freaking stay wherever you are you are disgusting how dare you say that what she did was just not criminal but we can work on it a woman died partially because of her attitude evil completely evil

  7. after watching the berlinsky story The Medical Institute in Texas and the FDA wanting to put the doctor he created a treatment for brain Cancers and more to put him in prison and the National Cancer Association was involved in stopping him when I watch this I have no faith in all the money that it's supposed to be going to these diseases 0 I don't believe you all want a cure for anyting because you'd rather people died and make money that's the facts whether you like to hear it or not

  8. tRump has fat-shamed women so I can see him not wanting to be around Tiffany as often. Afterall she was an oops baby while he was married to 1st wife.

  9. This is a prime example of why companies let an employee go 2 days after their 2 weeks notice. No point in risking a company meltdown because somebody no longer gives a fcuk

  12. I only buy three or four times a year from something straight from China. Other than that I have learnt years ago to always buy something second hand. For the fraction of the cost. 🤔

  13. And I trust in our president. I'm so sick and tired of propaganda new.
    I watch one American News and Epoch times there's app.
    Just about every news Media Group. Belongs to the Democratic party which is made up of many Wicked groups. Nazis communist socialist Marxist, and terrorist groups. all trying to lead us down the path, and other leaders around the world to the United Nations one world order which begins in 2021. And when all said and done one out of 18 is supposed to survive. it has also been stated that China wants to be in control of the World by 2049. I'm a Democrat and I won't ever vote for another Democratic leader.
    DT 20 ❤️ 20

  14. Millenials can't handle stress, they have been brought up in this politically correct world where everyone is equal……guess what ?

  15. Dispatch operator is a rude self-centered ruling person. She is not suitable for someone who is in fear. Shame on your dispatch operator. So she was scolding as a woman was dying

  16. PULLED OVER THE SHOOTER FOR UNKNOWN REASONS A BIG BIG RED FLAG THIS COULD OF PROVOKED THIS MAN PULLING OVER INNOCENT PEOPLE BECAUSE OF SOME KIND OF PROFILING WHY I WANT TO KNOW WHY THESE POLICE OFFICERS WOULD PULL THIS MAN OVER

  17. I
    Why didn't the 911 operator, instead of nagging at the drowning victim in a submerged vehicle, just calmly instruct her to place her necklace around her knuckles upon her hand with the medal object thereupon tightly in front of her knuckles, and punch the driver door glass window real, real hard repeatedly to brake the glass and get out of the vehicle immediately right then? Pictures shows she wears jewelry.

  18. Breaking news mass Shooting in tx, trump and his supporters let’s send illegal emigrants back and make this country great again

  19. What if she had been the daughter of the police chief? Just saying….
    May she rest in peace forever and may the arm of God reach this ugly dark soul with His Divine justice.

  20. Good year to celebrate the holidays the way they should. Get together with family and friends and enjoy their company. Bring food. that's the gift. save your money. if your only there for the gifts you won't be missed anyway.

  21. I remember growing up everything in our house was made in America. If you found something made from China in your house we used to call it generic.

  22. And why are we buying anything from China only thing we should be getting from China is things that we can't make or build over here. Or we choose to buy some of the things we don't have a choice everything come from them

  23. There is no more compassion. I notice alot of aggression towards each other and even towards animals. People are shooting, hurting, suing, careless and ungrateful.
    All the way down to the kids and the way they are being raised. Scary!!!! Change your behavior!!!

  24. 911 operators always have an attitude. They all need to be retrained. Every single one. They always seem bothered that you call them

  25. Hello 911, a man with a gun is trying to break into my house !!
    911 operator: Well you shouldn't of moved into that house .
    Most likely the lady driving at night/dark seen what appeared to be only a small amount of water on the road….. By the time she realized it was much deeper and fast moving flood waters it was too late….Who would look ahead at flood water and think, "Hey that water covering the road looks about 4 feet deep and fast moving, I think I'll try to drive through it anyway"

  26. Stupidity each nation pays another equal tariffs and taxes. As it should be. Stupid to import yogurt and dead animal flesh from A slow boat from China. Stupid.

  27. That poor woman – having to hear shaming and "Shut up!" in the last few moments of her life… Notice also that "God" didn't do anything to help her. So, what was His "reason" for letting this happen to her? Did he enjoy her murder? That's what it would be, you know, if He "took" her "too soon" and all that "thoughts and prayers" crap…

  28. I love watching NBC News I think the style and the way they do their broadcast is superb. However, when they were doing the story on the lady that perished going into the water and the horrifying disrespect and lack of compassion from the 911 operator is appalling. The problem I have with NBC here is that after they gave that story why wouldn't you cuz you guys ad-lib all the time just simply say very sorry this is just a horrifying story our prayers are with the family then move on to the next story. Not just go from that into an ice bucket challenge is it respectful. That meant nothing. That meant nothing come on people you can do a little better than that I think. My prayers are with her family. May God Rest Her Soul.

  29. Tyrant Trump is cracked. The only question is, will he become completely cracked by 2020, or put out to pasture before then? Who cares what Trump thinks or worries about? He doesn't think, and he should be worried!

  30. this incident would have never happened if the police didn't make a contact … they need to stop there warrantless fishing!!

  31. I sure the police can figure out what set that guy off because they are the same as the shooter is except they have badges….

  32. With Trump's trade 'war' (where would the poor, little handed, rich boy find fun without a war to get excited about) the Chinese are not longer buying soy beans from US. Instead from Brazil. So, the Amazon is being burnt for soy beans. GD Republicans and their love of money is killing US.

    Thank you to Texas DPS for a great job of sacrifice an obtaining the criminal who has a long record.
    Who bought guns illegally….

  35. All the time we hear about a Gun Shooting in Texas…What is wrong with Texan people? The Gov. needs to bann Guns for Civilians in USA!

  36. Another shooting an Politicians will still do NOTHING !
    Trump made it easier for the mentally ill to get guns when he rolled back Obama regulations

  37. OMG the 911 Operator, instead to calm the victim she disturbed her even more…Donna the 911 Operator is an unhappy , Mean and Feia e Gorda, person!

  38. President Trump, please I respectfully request that you allow me Ms. Westerhouse’s job. I’ll do much better and I’ll obey by any NDA’s!

  39. Corporate America isn't grateful for their consumer business they have taken aim at the general public. Time to use the power of your hard earned dollar. Business should stop getting their inventory from China and America should restart the factories to make the stuff we are being forced to buy from China. Make America great again.

  40. 911 operators, like DMV workers, are some of the most ignorant and rude people on the earth. I believe it is a job requirement.
