HOW TO CALL THE POLICE

George Phillips of Meridian, Mississippi was going up to bed when his
wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which
she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to
go turn off the light but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

He phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?" and he
said "no". Then they said that all patrols were busy, and that he
should simply lock his door and an officer would be along when available.
George said, "Okay," hung up, counted to 30, and phoned the police again.

"Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people
in my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now cause I've
just shot them all." Then he hung up.

Within five minutes three police cars, an Armed Response unit, and an
ambulance showed up at the Phillips residence. Of course, the police
caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the Policemen said to George: "I thought you said that you'd
shot them!"

George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"

The odd thing is that it's true. I have found out first hand that if you actually want the police to respond in a reasonable amount of time, claim you're going to take matters into your own hands. Suddenly they're able to make it right away.

They don't mind crime much, but they fucking hate innocent people taking care of business themselves.

No what happens is you have to leave the accident scene you were working to go answer the higher priority call. Then after you are done. Go back and finish up the other.

If you want a faster response time get your local .gov to hire more cops.
