"Williams worked at the Houston Emergency Center for about a year and a half before she was fired in 2016. Her supervisors had realized Williams was responsible for cutting off emergency calls after just a few seconds, often forcing callers to try again — and to wonder why they couldn't get help.

At the time, Williams reportedly told police that she simply didn't want to talk to anyone. Her attorney recently said, "She was going through a hard time in her life," according to the Houston Chronicle.

Prosecutors said the abnormally short 911 calls happened "thousands" of times on Williams' watch. At court, prosecutor Lauren Reeder of the Harris County District Attorney's Office said the public needs to be able to rely on the 911 system, the Chronicle reported."


But yeah, trust the government to come save you....
