There is no situation so dire that calling 9-1-1

won't make it worse. I mean, if your life is on the line and that is your only hope, dial. But know that your family will be harassed, demeaned and traumatized by the responders.
It is a revenue agency now. If they can find someone, anyone, to arrest, they will. And if there is nothing illegal going on, they will arrest anyone who has displayed more emotion than the cop likes. See a baby fall in the lake? Better just jump your silly ass in and save it. Call 9-1-1 and you are likely to get a bunch of guys who respond and decide it is not safe for them to get in the water. If you decide to jump in then, they will physically restrain you and arrest you.
It breaks my heart, my husband was a paramedic years ago, and it was starting even then. The old guys would run put their life on the line every day, the young guys were well trained in safety...

My county is huge, mountainous and mostly dirt roads. There are 3 men who patrol it. I raise chickens. Every time the hawks start to circle, I keep an eye out. I have never fired a shot at them, but they have never gone for a chicken. If they come after the chicken, I will fire at them. So.... shall I call the Sheriff every time I see a hawk circle? Mind you, I don't want to shoot a hawk, I want to fire at them the FIRST time they go for my chickens though.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

I learned this first hand.

I called the Sheriff after suffering for months being forced to drive by a neighbors pasture where he put sick animals out to die.

First it was some starving cows and a horse that would not eat save a fence post top. He would just gnaw away at that post day after day, starving until he was no longer there. Finally when the rain came the cows had enough to eat. Then they were taken away.

Then there were another set of cows that ate the grass down to stubble during dry season and they were consequently merely skin and bones. The neighbor had called the Sheriff twice before me.

So I called, trying to be anonymous. The deputy repeatedly called my number and threatened me that if I did not give him my name and address I would be in a heap of trouble. I reluctantly gave in. He zoomed directly to my home where I was burning out of season. I am of the proper gender to know how to burn a safe fire. : ) I pretended to be doing yard work far away from him and had my step mom talk to him. He was pushing her trying to get past her to come after me. He was enraged because of my reluctance to give my information and because of the fire. He called the fire department and had them come to put out my tiny safe fire. Thank goodness my step mom was there or he/I may have done something stupid. I will never call the Sheriff again. Not for a burglar, not for a rapist, not for anything.

Ironically the fire kept smoldering for months until a great wind got it going again. It raged out of control from the unburned brush. I had to call the fire department. Luckily they believed me that I had not done it. Since they came out once they were to charge me if I did it again.

The same Deputy nearly killed my neighbor as well. He refused to allow a flight for life helicopter land in his vacant pasture because it was a 'no helicopter zone'. A friend called the neighboring county's Sheriff to override his stupidity.

And that's my long story and I am sticking to it.

It was the best of cities, it was the worst of cities

Milwaukee has around 1 million people - great town in the good parts, scary as f in the bad parts.

Oh, and all the criminals in that town already have guns and don't listen to the radio so mayor Tom Barrett, don't I remember you campaigning to be governor of this fine state with the story of HOW YOU WERE ATTACKED AND BEATEN WHEN TRYING TO ASSIST A GRANDMOTHER BEING ATTACKED?

Wouldn't a gun in the right hands have been helpful then?

9-11 was a panda job.

Quite a tale of two cities.

; )
