You'd think Glen Beck's family would know better than to let him drunk dial.

Call 911 for business cards and get arrested, it is the fault of the caller
Call 911 16 times for business cards and get arrested each time, it is the fault of the law

I'd love to hear a more expansive explanation of the content of the calls.

Sounds about right.

At what point did 911 become the number to call whenever you wanted a to involve the police? Seriously--when did self-entitled douches like the biatch at the nail salon forget that 911 was for emergencies only? I was at the liquor store Christmas Eve & some stupid kid in front of me was calling 911 because he didn't have his license & the store wouldn't sell him beer. Seriously? You call 911 for that?

So I asked him--why does the store not selling him beer constitute as an emergency? He looked at me confused & said he just wanted the police and didn't know what other number to call. Then he thought the clerk & I were joking when we told him the cop would probably arrest him for misuse of the system. I really wanted to stick around to watch how all that played out, but had better things to do on Christmas Eve.

But seriously--when did people forget that police stations have non-emergency numbers? And that you can call 411 if you don't know it off-hand??

I'd bet a large chunk of my bingo money that it's the latter.

FTA....while apparently intoxicated, he called 911 and told the dispatcher he wanted the media arrested, but admitted there was no emergency, deputies said.

No emergency?....... throw their asses in jail right NOW!
 
2010-12-27 06:50:01 PM
I'm surprised he knew the number to dial for 911.
 
2010-12-27 06:51:08 PM
Some cities want all police requests, emergency or otherwise, through 911. Or if you try what's posted as a non-emergency number, you get the same bank of fearless operators. *shrug*

"Uh, no. You got the wrong number... This is.. 9-1...2"

I guess I'll just call someone else when I need business cards.

Police don't want to sell me business cards? Fine. It's their loss.
 
2010-12-27 07:01:10 PM
The media apparently took the call seriously.

I called 911 when my car was stolen. They told me it wasn't an emergency and to call a non-emergency number. When I called the non-emergency number I spoke with the same operator that I talked to when dialing 911.

They found the car a day later parked across someones driveway (WTF?), but it was a total loss considering the damage done.

Idiot. Unless your car is actually in the process of being stolen, then it's not an emergency.

Same operator, so what? The people dialing the emergency number will get priority in case there's a queue.

People that do this, or call the police when they are offended (penis snow sculpture is a good example) should be lined up and
shot subject to public ridicule and stoning.
 
2010-12-27 07:12:35 PM
I would rather that people always call 911 when police/fire/medical assistance is needed than let actual emergency situations go unreported because idiots with poor judgment can't tell for themselves if it's an emergency.

That is, assuming that there's actually a reason to request police/fire/medical assistance.

The car was there less than an hour before I noticed it missing. Far as I knew it was just around the corner. I have no problem with calling an emergency number under those circumstances.

If your car was just stolen you would think it's an emergency.

Forgot to add, is it no longer an emergency after a rape has just happened? Is 911 only appropriate while the rape is in progress?

I called the non-emergency line for the local police several years ago because there was someone sleeping in a van in my condo parking lot who didn't live there and was using the bushes as a urinal. I was told to hang up and dial 911, because technically my condo was then in unincorporated country and the county sheriff would have to handle it, and they didn't have a non-emergency line I could call.

Don't some communities have a non-emergency alternative, like 311?

Rape is not a good example as it's both a criminal and a medical emergency. Someone that's been raped needs medical attention, both physical and mental treatment, and probably should have a rape kit/test taken. The 911 operator would be able to dispatch the correct people. I'm assuming the victim is calling within an hour of the rape. Past that point then maybe the best course of action is just to drive to the emergency room.

I have a similar story. I was at the gym and when I went to leave, I couldn't turn the ignition with my key. Someone had attempted to steal the car and destroyed the steering column in the process. So I went back inside and called 911 (this was before cell phones) but they said it wasn't an emergency and gave me the non-emergency #. I called it and was told an officer would call me back to take the report over the phone. Apparently it didn't even warrant sending an officer. So as I was waiting for the call, I went back out to my car to get some change for the soda machine. The car was gone. The thief had apparently been scared off while in the process previously, but came back to finish the job. Had the person who answered 911 (or the non-emergency #, for that matter) simply sent an officer, it may have been in time to prevent my car from being stolen. It was found on the not-so-good side of town, also totalled.

Okay, how about someone who is with you just got their head blown to bits with a shotgun? They're already dead(with brain destroyed), it isn't like they are going become undead again. 911, or non-emergency?
