Bomb Alarm Resolved (-3)
In what world would a 911 operator who DIDN'T report a bomb threat (at a festival, no less) be doing the right thing?

It's not a 911 operator's job to determine if a bomb threat sounds legitimate or not.

The bomb threat call was false. The person who had called you turned out to be the same one who reported that the music festival wouldn't let him sleep.
I also made that mistake the first time I played. Then by doing it right, I understood why.
Before blaming the game, you should look in the report for the steps you could have done wrong.
It is known that mistakes are learned, but next time you know why it was.

The irony of being told to read by someone who didn't read.

Reading the report comes in training. If you have not done the training, then very bad of you.

Yes, obviously, I mean, I did mention the bomb was fake in my original post - the exact message that's given in the report. Almost as though I had... read it already.

Your post completely failed to address my point:

It's not a 911 operator's job to determine if a bomb threat is fake or not.

Tell me, when you failed to send a team to check the bomb threat, how much trouble would you have been in if a bomb had gone off because your assumption that the guy who complained about the noise *wouldn't* plant a bomb was wrong?

That's a rhetorical question, obviously you'd be fired and possibly face charges.
