Texas 9-1-1 operator is in trouble after making a joke during one of his emergency calls

A North Texas 9-1-1 operator has found himself in trouble after making a joke during one of his emergency calls. Mike Forbess answered a call from a woman who claimed her two 12-year old daughters were physically fighting one another. She told him she needed help and feared for their safety and he responded with this:

Mother: "The 12-year-old is completely out of control and I can't... I physically... she's as big as I am I can't control her"

Operator: "OK. Do you want us to come over to shoot her?"

The operator has received two letters of reprimand.
