Cops Suspended for Blowing Off 911 Call

Two NYPD cops were suspended for allegedly blowing off a 911 call to check on a Crown Heights woman — who was later found dead in her home, her husband being the primary suspect.

From the NY Post [1]:

The officers had been assigned to touch base with Tonie Wells, 22, whose sister called police, relaying that the young mom was “scared” of her husband, sources said.

Dispatched officers drove to Wells’ home in Crown Heights, but never got out of their car to actually check on her welfare, law enforcement sources said.

Wells’ body was found at 9:50 a.m. with bruises on her neck inside her Sterling Place residence. Her husband was later arrested.

What does “blowing off” mean in English?
Sounds rude !

taking no notice, dismissing as unimportant.

Terribly sad but you should see how quick they come to give a ticket for a car blocking a garage

Cops respond faster for tickets than they do for important work.

Maybe now they wont blow off crown hts residents as they often do. This may save others but its a shame this had to happen to wake police up

#11 Comment By Police are outsiders On December 31, 2017 @ 10:52 am

The Police are outsiders. You can’t expect outsiders to come in and care about our community. It’s unfortunate and that’s why we need Shomrim. Gentiles need their own “insiders”. No one cares about you like family.

it might help for others to know how to deal with such issues, such as teaching kids phone #’s to call, such as abuse #’s, shelter #’s etc. This is tragic. the system failed these people

This is not 71 pct but the 77 pct which covers the north side of eastern parkway.

#14 Comment By cops not at fault!!! On December 31, 2017 @ 2:09 pm

The cops are told to try to ignore or write of calls to 911 so that their RATINGS go UP!!!!
How many murders in NY Ohh way down etc.

#15 Comment By outsiders? On December 31, 2017 @ 3:51 pm

sadly insiders do the same thing.
our own Rabonim, mashpiim and community activists send women back to abusive situations.
It happened to me, and only by a miracle did my children and I get away from a horrible situation. We are finally breathing again, but if it were up to our insiders we would still be living with terror and humiliation.
I am not the only one either.
Too many I know say the same thing.
One friend got an order of protection but in order to get a gett Rabonim made her take it off.
Wake up!

this is what happens when you live within a cult

#17 Comment By woow! On December 31, 2017 @ 5:31 pm

police need to stop giving tickets and do police stuff!

Wow strong!
Not the forum here but this needs serious open discussion
Rubashkin celebration and rightly so
However how many of our’s (Albeit females) are similarly incarcerated by a similarly corrupt system.
Time to take serious note and time to review seriously (sorry for repetitiveness) the Halachic articles in publications like Techumin etc. aim of which is to alleviate problems alluded in #15 comment

I heard the police officers claim it was a misunderstanding; that they thought the crime happened outside, but saw nothing outside, so they left.
