Marijuana anon here 🙋🏻 I've read everything that everyone has said about smoking and I appreciate all of you helping me out! I am almost 9 weeks along and I WILL be quitting because I don't want to risk it. I do live in Albuquerque, New Mexico (yes, it's in the states) and I don't know what the law is if they were to find out I smoke. I don't want to stress my whole pregnancy so to keep everyone safe I'll quit! Thanks again!
Albuquerque, New Mexico - A dispatcher for the fire department has resigned after a 911 call transcript of him hanging up on a woman who needed his help. On June 26th, 2015, Jaydon Chavez-Silver, 17, was shot in a drive-by. Jaydon was sitting in the kitchen area when someone opened fire on the house. An unidentified woman called 911 and was taking instructions from Matthew Sanchez, who had been working dispatch for 10 years. He did not like the way the woman spoke to him, so he hung up on her. Jaydon ended up dying from his wounds. Here is the 911 call transcript:
Caller: (inaudible) I’m keeping him alive.
Sanchez: Is he not breathing?
Caller: Barely. (inaudible) Stay with me. Stay with me, okay? Good job, Jaydon.
Sanchez: Is he breathing?
Caller: He’s barely breathing. How many times do I have to f—ing tell you?
Sanchez: Okay, do you know what ma'am? You can deal with it yourself. I’m not going to deal with this, okay?
Caller: No, he’s going to die.
The call ends there.
The fire chief released this response:
“After learning of the alleged misconduct, Matthew Sanchez was immediately removed from the dispatch center and placed on administrative assignment,“ said Albuquerque Fire Chief David Downey in a statement. "An internal investigation has been initiated. As the chief of the department, I am taking the allegation very seriously.”
MUST Read & We really can’t depend on the police anymore: “Dispatcher tells 911 caller, ‘deal with it yourself’ before hanging up”
By RUSSELL CONTRERAS Associated Press
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A New Mexico dispatcher has been removed from duty after telling a panicked 911 caller who was trying to save the life of a shooting victim to “deal with it yourself.”
Matthew Sanchez was reassigned after officials became aware of the call, fire officials said.
“An internal investigation has been initiated,” Albuquerque Fire Chief David Downey said Monday in a statement. “I am taking the allegation very seriously.”
The call was made after Jaydon Chavez-Silver, 17, was shot in June as he watched other teens play cards at a friend’s house in Albuquerque. He later died. Police have not named a suspect and have made no arrests.
In the recording obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press, the panicked caller snaps at the dispatcher for repeatedly asking whether Chavez-Silver is breathing.
During the call, the female says, “I am keeping him alive!”
Sanchez asks, “Is he not breathing?”
The caller responds, “Barely!”
She is then heard frantically encouraging Chavez-Silver to keep breathing.
“One more breath! One more breath!” she is heard telling the teen. “There you go Jaydon. One more breath! There you go Jaydon. Good job! Just stay with me, OK? OK?”
The dispatcher then asks again, “Is he breathing?”
The female responded, “He is barely breathing, how many times do I have to (expletive) tell you?”
“OK, you know what ma'am? You can deal with it yourself. I am not going to deal with this, OK?” the dispatcher says.
It seemed from the tape that Sanchez hung up on the caller in mid-sentence.
“No, my friend is dying .,” she said as the call ended.
A spokesman for Jaydon’s family says they’re astonished at the call, but want to focus on finding their son’s killer.
Albuquerque Fire Chief David Downey said in a statement that the department has launched an internal investigation into the call.
“After learning of the alleged misconduct, Driver Matthew Sanchez was immediately removed from the dispatch center and placed on administrative assignment. An internal investigation has been initiated. As the Chief of the department, I am taking the allegation very seriously.”

WTF with Marc Maron - Ep. 620: Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan has a reputation as one of the nicest showrunners in Hollywood. It’s a deserved reputation based on this incredibly friendly conversation in the garage with Marc. They talk about Albuquerque, the South, used books, film vs video, George Lucas, The X-Files, meeting Bryan Cranston and spinning off Saul Goodman.
