In a horrifying case in Oregon, a woman was allegedly raped after her call to 911 went unanswered.
The situation is leading many to question how budget cuts are impacting public safety.
In August of 2012, the woman called for help after her violent ex-boyfriend showed up at her door. She was transferred to state police because her local sheriff’s department isn't staffed full time, but she didn't receive any help from them either.
In shocking audio, the dispatcher can be heard telling the woman she didn't have “anybody to send out there.”
