    I can't help it...that may be the most HILARIOUS 911 call I've ever heard.


    Granny:"GET DOWN!" BANG

    BG: "OWWW" (thud)

    Granny:"How dare you come into my house you lousy son of a @#$!&! SHUT UP! Get the police out here or he's a dead man!"

    Go granny!

    Was trying to find out when that happened...must have been back in 2005 or so. I came across this story when searching:

    I liked how the dispatcher said "she needs to stop shooting him"!
    But then, I didn't like it also.
    Think what if...

    You have to wonder how the dispatcher knows "she needs to stop shooting him." My guess is that the grandmother is correct.

    I liked the following John Stossel story. He also did a good report on how Clinton's AWB did absolutely nothing. The Appalachian students who stopped the shooter story, however, were not normal students, but off duty cops.

    True. But the only way that figures into it is that they didn't shoot him. Their training led to them doing the "stop or I'll shoot" thing.

    Anyone else could have stopped the shooter, too, with a gun. But the shooter would be dead. That would, of course, save the taxpayers a great deal of money.

    Let met understand this. A police dispatcher on the phone is making decisions about whether or not an intruder is a threat?

    That's too funny.

    I think my plan now will be to call 9-1-1 after the shooting stops rather than during.

    Any word on whether Art's Grammaw was involved?

    For the lawyers

    Could a dispatcher be held liable for giving instructions that turn out to be harmful? For example, if a dispatcher, hypothetically, told a caller to stop shooting and the caller did so and was then harmed by the intruder, could that dispatcher be liable for damages?

    With this particular Grandma, she would have plugged him again...and again...and then reloaded.

    I believe this was from the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and is one of the stories told in a book titled "Thank God I Had A Gun".
