WTF is wrong with you guys? How can you post this? Totally devoid of any respect, compassion and a soul.

I knew Jeret as an acquaintance, he was part of my outreach to wounded soldiers. I can only say that he struggled to stay in the light from the wounds of a childhood pedophile, the death of his sister by a drunk driver, the death of his best friend by gunshot in front of him. He was a courageous, complicated young man who lost the battle with his demons. I hope he and his family find some peace.

If a 911 operator was irresponsible and someone didn't get there in time, everyone would want to hear that message load and clear...

Cannot have it both ways...

It is PUBLIC record.

HE should have thought about HIS family...not Harvey.

My heart breaks for his family and friends. His voice echoes someone who is in pain and has lost his way. May he be at peace now.

Fine. Leave this crap up for the world to see. I WANT to see Harvey Levin, on TMZ Live tomorrow (Friday) discuss with Charles the reasoning TMZ used to post this hurtful 911 call for the world to listen to. Shame on you Harvey. Let's see if you are giggling like a little school girl when you are describing your reasoning.

Just when TMZ is as low aa it can get, Harvey finds a shovel.

There is no reason for this. He and his family never did anything to anyone. Have some compassion for those he left behind. Harvey if it were your kid would you post this? Shame on you.

Harvey Weinloser is going to have alot to atone to this Yom Kippur! "WARNING -- THE 911 TAPE IS EXTREMELY EMOTIONAL AND VERY SAD"...This warning is suppose to be TMZ way of showing respect, it pitiful!! This post is appalling and I know it will not make a difference if I never look at TMZ again but if we all do that do not agree with this post Harvey Weinloser just might have less money to count!!! Harvey Weinloser should put himself in Jeret Peterson parents and families place. Harvey Weinloser is disgusting and has no morals or respect!!!! No, I did not listen to the tape, the headline was enough for me!!

Pick-up the phone and call Warner Brothers CORPORATE OFFICES IN BURBANK. Let them know how you feel about Harvey's sinking to a new low (though I'm sure he'll sink lower with the next tragic story).

It's one thing to post your comments here, it's another to make a call so those at CORPORATE can hear when the readers have to say about Harvey's lack of compassion.

How did they get access to this? I hope you get successfully sued for enough money you feel it. There is a line, you crossed it. Disgusting.
