When seconds count...

I've said it before, and I'll say it again now. The police are there to draw the chalk outline and look for the perp. Protection is not part of their job.

MONTPELIER, Vt. -- A 911 dispatcher trying to find a Vermont woman being beaten to death was slowed by technical problems and a bureaucratic roadblock at Verizon Wireless, delaying emergency responders' ability to reach the victim, a county official in New York said Friday.

The dispatcher was placed on hold for two minutes and then got a busy signal when trying to fax a form that would allow Verizon to release the billing address of the victim's cellphone, said Bill Cook, Washington County public safety director.

It was 30 minutes between the time a screaming Francine Morgan placed the 911 call from her home in Wells that it was answered across the state line in New York and the Vermont State Police in Rutland could be sent to her home, where she was found dead.
