911 Dispatcher Offers To Shoot Child, As Joke

A 911 dispatcher in Texas is apologizing for an ill-timed wisecrack to a mother who called for help in dealing with her unruly daughter.

Caller: “The 12-year-old is completely out of control and I, I can’t physically…She’s as big as I am. I can’t control her.”
Dispatcher: “O.K., did you want us to come over and shoot her?”
(pause)
Dispatcher: “Are you there?”
Caller: “Excuse me?”
Dispatcher: “Uh, that’s a joke.”

The mother didn’t find it very funny.
