Florida House committee moves to ban public release of 911 tapes
John Hoblick's 16-year-old son died after a night of drinking games and illegal prescription drugs.
The next day, he heard the local television station play the 911 call on the news. "It caused a lot of anguish," he said.
Hoblick, the Florida Farm Bureau president, made it his personal mission to ban the public release of 911 tapes to protect victims and families. And while most parents-turned-crusaders find the lawmaking process cold and ineffectual, Hoblick's effort is getting fast-tracked thanks to support from House Speaker Larry Cretul.
