How to call the police

Sensei Post in Self-Defense

The following is a True Story
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 and 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!”
This is a sad but true story. I use to tell my students to call in a fire or yell fire instead of calling the police when in dire need but this beats that by a mile! It is unfortunate that we are forced to rely on such an unreliable system for our safety and protection. A fact that criminals exploit daily. Don’t get me wrong we should have the utmost respect for the Badge it is the sloth that has infiltrated most police forces that should bother us. I often argue (and challenge any to dispute) that the police have one of the safest jobs around (with the exception of certain undercover and inner city cops). Think of it this way, while the criminals are getting away with your stuff, the police are taking a statement from you! The police don’t even come close to making the Top 10 most dangerous jobs in America. So next time expect a little more from your police force even if you have to help them do their job like this man did!
