It is time for this 911 stuff to STOP!!! I hope the cops can put a stop to it. people are talking all around town about the swat team at there house are at local stores saying there was 911 called to them when NO ONE had called,it was even on tv.The cops do not need this, there is more important things for them to do!! Like checking the number ,calling it back before you seen 6 car loads of cops out wasting money and time.
