    About “lowering our standard of living” (through technology) it’s not just in income standards, it’s culture standards too. Have you seen it Vicky? It’s not just our inner workings, courts and economy but the culture as well – cashiers being rude, and everyone has become so ungrateful. Now listen to this ugly pig of a woman how she treats a drowning, dying woman! “”FORT SMITH, Ark. – A former 911 dispatcher in Arkansas was cleared of any wrongdoing in how she handled a call in which she scolded a panicking woman for driving into floodwaters before she drowned.

    An internal investigation by the Fort Smith police department found that Donna Reneau performed her duties as required, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported.

    Reneau was working her final shift Aug. 24 when she took the call from 47-year-old Debra Stevens, a newspaper delivery woman, who later drowned as her SUV was swept away by flash flooding.

    “Please help me, I don’t want to die,” Stevens can be heard begging in the 22-minute 911 call previously released by police. “I can’t swim! I’m scared! I’m going to drown!”

    The department received hundreds of phone calls saying Reneau was disrespectful for scolding Stevens as she sobbed and asked for help and for telling her “this will teach you next time don’t drive in the water.”

    “Will you pray with me?” Stevens can be heard asking the dispatcher at one point in the call.

    “You go ahead and start off the prayer, and I’ll listen to you,” Reneau responds. “I sure will.“

    Reneau, who was working her final shift after giving her notice two weeks notice, told Stevens that authorities will get there when they get there and that she’s not going to die, at one point telling her to “shut up.”

    “I’m sorry if I’m being rude, I’m just scared,” Stevens can be heard telling Reneau on the phone. “I’ve never had anything happen like this before.”

    “Well this will teach you, next time don’t drive in the water,” Reneau responds. “I don’t see how you didn’t see it, you had to go right over it, so.” News

    Dispatcher who scolded drowning woman cleared of wrongdoing

    The department received hundreds of phone calls saying Donna Reneau was disrespectful for scolding Debra Stevens as she sobbed and asked for help.

    FORT SMITH, Ark. – A former 911 dispatcher in Arkansas was cleared of any wrongdoing in how she handled a call in which she scolded a panicking woman for driving into floodwaters before she drowned.

    An internal investigation by the Fort Smith police department found that Donna Reneau performed her duties as required, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported.

    Reneau was working her final shift Aug. 24 when she took the call from 47-year-old Debra Stevens, a newspaper delivery woman, who later drowned as her SUV was swept away by flash flooding.

    “Will you pray with me?” Stevens can be heard asking the dispatcher at one point in the call.

    “You go ahead and start off the prayer, and I’ll listen to you,” Reneau responds. “I sure will.“

    Reneau, who was working her final shift after giving her notice two weeks notice, told Stevens that authorities will get there when they get there and that she’s not going to die, at one point telling her to “shut up.”

    “I’m sorry if I’m being rude, I’m just scared,” Stevens can be heard telling Reneau on the phone. “I’ve never had anything happen like this before.”

    “Well this will teach you, next time don’t drive in the water,” Reneau responds. “I don’t see how you didn’t see it, you had to go right over it, so.”

    Authorities responded to the scene 12 minutes after Stevens dialed 911, but it took more than an hour to reach Stevens’ vehicle because of the floodwaters. By the time rescue crews were able to secure the car, Stevens had drowned.

    Reneau faced no criminal charges in Stevens’ death.

    Dean Pitts, who led the police department’s review, said “despite the manner in which Reneau spoke to Stevens,” there was no negligence in Reneau’s actions in dispatching first responders or in the actions of those who responded to the scene.

    In the report, Pitts wrote Reneau’s actions wouldn’t have merited being fired and that it’s “often necessary to take a stern or commanding tone, or to even raise one’s voice” when dealing with someone who may be hysterical in a critical incident.”

    She would not have been fired, police depts say. NOT fired! Speaking of- our local Phoenix police dept has a black woman as Chief of Police now. The Phoenix PD is also going through a major “restructuring” that is, leadership skills stuff/Communitarianism. They will all become like that ugly, priggish slob who told a dying woman to “shut up”, just like Idiocracy Vicky! Have you not watched it yet?

      I have seen it Kristin. That’s why the theme song of this website is This is not America by David Bowie.

      Read this very, very carefully. What I’m writing right now will include it:

    hi vicky,jus thought id say Thank You💖 For Sharing this virtual treasure trove of intel. This fills a lot of gaps for me,i was aware of a lot havin mebbe saw somethin on idiot box or been involved with paperwork and more paperwork as a licensed seaman sailin both foreign domestic juuust bout time they started actively rollin out then enforcing all lot of what we have now. I saw it as nothin but trackin surveillance from gitgo. I was a pirate in nother life up until the surveillance micromanaging and dam paperwork got to b horrendous along with perpetual training and costly mandated class,s for lic renewals. I was comm fisherman from 16 till 25ish which is when gov set a moratorium on 1 of the last 2 fisheries that still had fleet of mom pop offshore comm boats and kinda forced me to go get a Real job. Bein a licensed sea man wasnt bad at 1st other than money sucked compared to fishing. First few yrs on bluewater tug makin tows both foregn an domestic i got to have a lot of adventures. About 95 was when micromanaging and modern tech as well and all the added mandates for additional training classes more safety workplace surveillance and social engineering really kicked in. I happened to b workin in gulf in oilpatch when oil prices collapsed 2013-14 by then itd all just gotten ridiculous for me anyhow,and i was makin decent money,it wasnt the actual work or job lol i had it made. It was all added rigamarole by uscg for renewals. I figured pay cuts were comin so i just told em I wasnt goin away mad,i was just goin away😁 oh id luckily just gotten certified as bein Compassionate & Diversified so i got that goin for me😂 i have certificate i remind my better half of periodically. I dont miss it. The security theatre after 911 was and still is,useless as tits on a boar hog. A joke. Id had my paperwork demanded by darkskinned barely proficient with english language on u.s waters quite a few times which wil irritate ya. The dam twic cards that were mandated by 2005 which lockheed martin lost All my Information for Langley’s background chek so i had do over with payover because id lost reciept an get this from 05 till think 2010 till i actually entered port that had dam reader for twic. I flew quite a bit so i tried repeatedly usin twic to speed clearance at airport. They none of em had a clue what twic was🤷‍♂️ but yea ive seen all infrastructure and security cameras an retarded G4 renta cops theyve added to ports. Shippin died in 08/09 and it never did regain the volume. Most ports were pretty quiet here on atlantic and gulf as i pass them occasionally. Anyhow Vickie i deeply appreciate you sharing and allowing me have a well rounded education on something id rather forget but i saw your interview with North Idaho Exposed and just happened to see your Tech Terror website on ur laptop when i glanced up. Ill b round here somewhere or your old site soakin up intel or cruisin these innerwebz till they bann me an send me to get reeducated if i can be of some assistance id be obliged jus shoot me message. TY…. Brian

      Thank you Brian for coming to my website to find out more. I really appreciate people who are curious because I am endlessly curious. What’s happening to our country and to other countries around the world is like a big puzzle and I’m hooked.

      Thank you for your offer. I may take you up on that sometime. I could really have used your knowledge when I was tracking down the maritime convention on freedom of transit to landlocked states.

      I have one rant that you might appreciate. I wrote it after my foray into Admiralty (Maritime) Law to prove what I thought about freedom of commercial transit to/through landlocked states. It’s on my old website.
