911 Dispatcher Who Failed Tamir Rice Resigns

Being a 911 dispatcher is one of the country’s most stressful jobs, which is why training for the worst possible situations is of utmost importance.

Beth Mandl, the Cleveland 911 dispatcher who neglected to tell responding officers that they were dealing with a child who was potentially holding a toy gun shortly before Tamir Rice was gunned down last November, has resigned.

Reports Cleveland.com

Beth Mandl sent a two-sentence resignation letter to the department on July 16 after failing to show up for work since April 3.

“I have enjoyed working here and I will miss you all,” the letter said.

Mandl signed her letter days after the department gave the long-absent dispatcher an ultimatum: provide a “satisfactory explanation” for her absence or be considered resigned.

Mandl said the job was stressful and spoke about quitting before she abandoned the post, according to a department letter. She was not paid during her absence.

Mandl came under fire from Tamir’s family and civil rights leaders in the days and months after the fateful November 2014 dispatch. A man called 911 and said that a male — possibly a juvenile — was waving around a gun and that the gun was “probably fake.”

That information was not relayed to the officers who showed up to Cudell. Tamir was shot within seconds of their arrival.

In 2008, Mandl was fired from her dispatcher job with Case Western Reserve University’s police department. About the same time, she was arrested and charged with bringing a gun to a bar.

A couple of questions still remain here.

–How is anyone allowed more than three months worth of no call/no shows without being reprimanded, let alone being canned?

–Despite her experience, shouldn’t Mandl have been giving a short leash seing that she was actually fired from her previous 911 dispatcher post?

The Tamir Rice call that led to the boy’s death can be listened to below.
