Call Who?

When seconds count the police are minutes away. Or hours in this case.

For three hours, Leon Dixon waited for Detroit police to arrive while he hid in his bedroom from the intruders downstairs.

Several times he called 911 for help, whispering to avoid detection. He even tried the Northwestern District police station directly, but said he was told officers weren’t available because they were in the middle of a shift change.

Obviously a totally unexpected happening which could not possibly have been foreseen. I mean, it's not like they do this every single day.

Scared, Dixon said he eventually decided to call Detroit City Councilwoman JoAnn Watson. “I told her she was my last resort,” he said.

Watson said she called Police Chief Ella Bully-Cummings and the mayor’s office directly to get police to respond. Jewelry and his daughter’s piggy bank were among the items taken, he said. The suspects have not been caught.

Yet again, we see that it pays to be a member of America's new ruling elite- the connected "Only Ones". You mere citizens will just have to make do while they take care of each other and their social circle of more-important-than-you friends.

Easy answer.

Call and inform the police that you just shot and kill some 2-legged vermin and would the police come and clean up the scene

I wonder if this is the same Leon Dixon?

Thanks for the link.

I wonder if he's changed his mind on being able to defend himself now?
