911 is Not Customer Service! Offenders Should be Penalized for Wasting 1st Responders Time

UPDATE!!  Since the inception of this petition, at least 4 MORE incidents took place!  ENOUGH! Newport Nancy, BBQ Becky, Burrito Bob, Larry Lawnman, Chemical Cathy, and Permit Patty, Poolside Pete, Hateful Hattie and too many others are a few good ole Americans that have wasted tax dollars and used our illustrious law enforcement as casual yet basic customer service reps to address their personal biases.  We all know that racial biases have been in existence for many decades and at one time, Police was the desired department to call from the 1800's and most if not all resulted in the death of the person of color.  Today, there have been instances where the Police were called KNOWING that a possibility of a mal result could happen; however, the Police instead recognized the bias and lack of evidence to result in an arrest. As per "Mapping Police Violence", Police killed 1,147 people in 2017. Black people were 25% of those killed despite being only 13% of the population. Is it that these 911 calls the new route of ridding those of color? Is this the new arrest of Universal thought--no one (race) is excluded. This Petition is demanding that people STOP using 911 as a customer service line to placate their own biases. Here are several cases that result in this petition, we need action NOW and our LAw Makers need to address this immediately if not sooner. Newport Nancy: This woman called 911 to report a black woman smoking a cigarette in an open area garage. There was no reported crime, just her smoking a Newport and giving a violent depiction of the recorded situation.  Parking lot Patty: This woman called 911 on an interracial man waiting for his white mother in a parking lot. Not only did she scream racial slurs while his kids were in the car! Again, no crime, he just started his car in a white area. Chemical Cathy: A Black man to whom was working on asphalt in a parking lot was berated by a white woman and was told that he was endangering the welfare of others because his truck had chemicals in it...his working materials--again, no crime. BBQ Becky: We remember the notorious 911 call and tragic daytime drama tear-jerking moment when the police arrived. Apparently, even after being proven that the area where a black man and his family were grilling allowed charcoal, Becky just couldn't resist in calling and complaining that a law was broken-- it really wasn't and she was burnt when the cop told her. Permit Patty: Yet another woman called the police (then found out that she was playing just to scare the 8-year-old little black girl) to report a black girl selling water in front of her property without a permit. Again, no crime. Burrito Bob: This man literally called 911 while talking to an officer on the same train to whom a hungry passenger was eating and complained of this Latino man eating a Burrito. After being dismissed and literally told to mind his business, he begrudgingly returned to his seat still mumbling and complaining about this meal--wait what?? no crime! Larry Lawnman: This man called 911 on a 12- year-old black child mowing lawns for his summer business. This young man found something that he enjoyed doing and was not getting into trouble. As a result of this 911 call and others mentioned, this young man not only was left alone by law enforcement, the actual police HELPED boost his business and 35k was raised to help his business!!!  Teeshirt Tammy: A woman called the police on a white man wearing a pro-gun teeshirt and claimed that she feared for her life--ignoring his weapon (in Texas open carry is legal). Not only did the police ignore the claim, they actually apologized to the man to whom was harassed. Poolside Pete:  One of the latest offenders of 911 abuse. This man called 911 on a fellow neighbor because she was black trying to swim with her child. Not only did he bluntly discriminate, he also refused to apologize we found wrong! Despite her having the pool card and giving her address, this man progressed  and claimed that she didn’t beling. Imagine a strange person asking for your ID when you have a small child with you, I’m pretty sure that you would not have given your ID as well. The police in this situation said that they will not be used as pawns to stroke somebody’s racial discrimination and ego.  Hateful Hattie: In Philadelphia, young men were selling fresh ice cold water in the sweltering heat to entering the Philadelphia zoo. Many patrons thank the young respectful men profusely as they enjoyed their ice cold water appreciating their delicious refreshing drink. One woman particular thought it was a great idea that these gentlemen were selling fresh ice cold water in the unrelenting heat to those that passing and or entering the Philadelphia zoo. With many patrons thanking them for their sale, one woman in particular thought it was a great idea to call 911 on these men for absolutely no reason at all. When she was asked WHY did she call the police, she answered “because I didn’t want them there”. We're pretty sure that there are way more situations like this, what concerns us are the number of false claims and calls made disrupting Law Enforcements job as they could be rescuing REAL lives in real CRIMINAL situations, not this foolishness that we are witnessing now daily. Stand with us demanding fines being imposed on those that frivolously using 911 or punish them with jail time as it is a crime to falsely claim. After research, it appears that every State has a misdemeanor penal code that has infractions for 911 abuse. This must be upheld by our Law Makers! Please sign and share!!!
