At least no one got shot. When IRS scam didn’t trick Arlington family, hoax caller got cops to descend on their home.
They did exactly what they were trained to do. No thinking required.
When are cops going to wake up to the fact that they are being punked? When a 100 more people die from officers who were “scared” because of a fake 911 call? 1000? Ever? I vote for never, because cops.
Maybe you should notice that the 911 call originated from a masked number before you went in loaded for bear.
