I read this story in one of our local rags and it really made me laugh at first. Then it got me thinking
Woman arrested for repeated calls to 911
A Kerrville woman was arrested Friday because she called 911 twice and told dispatch “her husband would not eat his dinner.”
Kerrville police officer Shalethea Makin responded to the 300 block of Blanks Street for a possible disturbance after 911 received two calls from the residence; the first was a hang-up, and on the second call, the operator could hear a woman screaming in the background.
When officers arrived, they found a 53-year-old woman screaming “about things that happened two weeks ago,” according to police report.
Officers reported that the woman smelled strongly of alcohol. She told officers she called 911 because her husband would not eat his dinner.
According to 911 dispatchers, the woman has a history of calling 911 for non-emergency situations when she drank.
“She has been warned many times to call the non-emergency number for the Kerrville Police Department when it’s not a life-threatening emergency,” said KPD public information officer Paul Gonzales.
This was the second time the woman was arrested for silent/abusive calls to 911 service.
She was taken into custody, and the case has been forwarded to the county attorney’s office
What the fuck is wrong with people anymore? Call the cops because your husband won't eat his dinner? What ever happened to just not giving him any pussy? And then there is this one on Drudge. Your kid won't stop playing his video games. So what do you do? A:Yank the controller out of the little fuckers hand, maybe kick the console across the room then turn the circuit breaker off. Or B: Call 911. I vote A. I see the increasing numbers of stories like this in the news and I am amazed on how much people rely on "Big Brother" to fix their problems. Fewer and fewer people have the balls anymore to confront their problems themselves. Nope, just call the government and they can fix it all. Just another sign of the times I guess. No wonder we have a complete waste of oxygen in the White House right now. These kind of people are his voting base. We are becoming a world full of nanny state pussies. Fucking pathetic.
UPDATE: She made the national news
