I can understand maybe if there was suspiscion something hinky was going on; someone could request access to the transcript of the tape; but it seems as though they are released almost as a matter of public record...that seems a little like an invasion of privacy to me...what do you ladies think?Answer Question

Yes however people willingly sign up to be exploited on a reality show; that isn't the case when you need emergency services.
I'm reminded of an older Dave Chapelle bit where he talks about it not being right because people are scared when they call 911 and say things or sound crazy and then what if he dies and that's the last thing his friends hear is him crying like a wuss on the phone...funny bit but true to an extent.
I recall when William Shatners wife drowned in their family pool. The anguish and pain in his voice was palpable; it brought tears to my eyes; and here they were playing it over and over on the radio...that was a private moment no one needed to hear; as are 99% of 911 calls.

IDK I just think sure go ahead and release the stupid ones where some crack-head is calling 911 cause McDonalds won't give her a refund on her chicken nuggets; use that as entertainment; that's all good - but someone's actuall emergency!?? I just don't understand it...
