emergency 911 tells accident victim.."too bad".

""(Lisbon-WTNH, Mar. 21, 2005 6:00 PM) _ A state trooper is in trouble tonight for his response to an urgent call for help. The trooper was answering 911 calls from friends of a man who had just crashed his motorcycle.

by News Channel 8's Sara Welch
State police say effective today, Trooper Robert Peasley is suspended for 15 days without pay.

The disciplinary actions follows months of an internal investigation into 911 calls from the scene of a motorcycle crash.

"This is where all the panic and mayhem began."

Along this road in Lisbon is where Jim Sawyer's son Justin lay dying.

"And there was a pool of blood coming from his head."

On August 17th, 2004, the 21-year-old crashed his motorcycle. His friends did what anyone would do in an emergency.

"I called 911 right away."

The call rang into the state police barracks in Montville.

Instead of comfort, Russell Shepard was shocked by the trooper's response on the other end of the line.

"State police 911.
Yeah I want to report a street bike accident on Incinerator Road in Taftville. Someone crashed on their street bike.
"Yeah... too bad."

Too bad says the state police dispatcher who then hangs up.

"I was shocked, thought I had the wrong number at first," says Russell Shepard.

"So I picked up the phone and called 911," says Liz Niegel.

Liz Niegel made the second frantic call.

"State police 911.
"Hi, I need to report a street bike accident what?
"Hello?"
"I need to report a street bike accident.
"Was that the one on Incinerator Road?
"Yeah. Help will get there. Shouldn't be playing games."

"Shouldn't be playing games," says the trooper, who then hangs up.

"Just the fact that my friend was there laying there helpless and it seemed like they didn't even care," says Niegel.

"I am absolutely outraged every time I hear that 'too bad' and then click," says Jim Sawyer, Victim's Father.

Jim Sawyer asks how someone who is supposed to care could act like he cared less.

"Anybody who could sit there on a switch board answering 911 calls knowing full well everything he says his being monitored and turn around and make the rude commentary that he did," says Sawyer. "No one deserves to be spoken to that way."

It wasn't until the third emergency call that a female dispatcher assessed the situation.

"How bad are the injuries?"
"He's not moving, he's bleeding from his ear.
"Is he breathing?.
"Yes, he is breathing."
"Tell people not to touch him. I will send an ambulance out there ok?"

Sawyer expected that response from the first call.

"I only know I would have felt a whole lot more comfortable if I had heard people on the other end of the line of that 911 call with some heart and caring," says Sawyer.

"He was rude and it was just an outrageous way to answer an emergency phone call."

A week after those calls, Justin Sawyer died from a severe head injury.

"I can't even begin to comment on that, he was my life," says Sawyer.

For his father, the troopers response that August evening will haunt him forever.

"It will play over and over and over in my mind for the rest of my life," says Sawyer. "What I want to see is this officer removed from his position, he's not fit to wear the uniform, that's what I think."

Jim Sawyer wants to make sure no one in an emergency situation calls 911 and gets this kind of response.

Tonight state police tell us that Trooper Robert Peasley's comments were unprofessional and inappropriate.

The agency apologizes if the actions added to the family's pain.

It also found that the behavior did not impact response time.

Trooper Peasley has 18 years with the state police and the department says he has been a stellar trooper with a long and unblemished career.

Meanwhile, the state police union tells us Trooper Peasley is remorseful for his comments but the union says the discipline is inappropriate and harsh.

The family of Justin Sawyer says a 15 day suspension isn't tough enough."

Stupid move on the trooper's part.

It's easy to assume that the kid was doing something stupid given the fact that he was a 21 year-old kid on a "street bike", but geez, the trooper's job is to get the facts and send someone out there.

15 days w/o pay. Yeah, that'll teach him a lesson. Should be 15 days in jail, or worse.

Being a State Trooper must be very difficult. Always cleaning up other people's messes. Most often encounter people when they are dead, dying, drunk, scared shitless, or just plain stupid.

There is no excuse for this turd's lack of compassion. I don't care if he saved the ****ing queen every day of his career before this, you can't treat an emergency like that. He should be excused from his position, or given some job that doesn't require him to come into contact with the citizenry.

I agree with the family, the punishment is not harsh enough. There's no excuse for a 911 call to be answered in that fashion. Also, I would think it is a poor display of department protocol to not even bother taking details over the phone that could affect the kind of help that was dispatched to the scene nor checking on the status of the person and helping the other people there to help their friend until EMTs showed up.

I think someone needs to tell the trooper: "Too bad, you just lost your job"

"Inappropriate and harsh"? He should have been fired, a 15 suspension is a slap on the wrist.

Also why did it take them 7 months to finally admit this guy was totally out of line, considering the evidence was right there on tape

Big shock that the Union is sticking up for this POS. They'll also insure that he keeps his job.

Where are all the pro-union sheep? I'm dying to hear how the evil corporations are keeping this a-hole down.

The trooper must have assumed that the bike was stolen.

from my experiences, Unions would back Satan himself as long as he paid dues.


Union rules etc need to be reworked ... they are too strong.
