    Just a sample of the ridiculous nonsense 911 dispatchers and law enforcement has to deal with.

      Don’t know whether it was a hoax or a misunderstanding or someone who was terrified giving the best info they could. But it is an example of the reason why you may see a flotilla of police cars and other emergency vehicles going by full code and then never hear about an actual incident – more often than not, they get canceled en route because the incident ends peacefully or turns out not to be what it seemed – TR

    i’m guessing whoever called it in wasn’t imagining someone running amok with a machete.

Sorry, comment time is over.
