911 calls being asked if they have arms?!
I was talking to a friend yesterday who called 911 the other day because she lives alone in her house and heard drunk teenagers outside her windows at night and one of them even talked about HER saying that[listed her occupation] lived there. That frightened her, so she called the police with the 911 call.
After reporting the situation and giving her name and address, etc. she asked if they would send someone to her house and get them to go away. The operator on the 911 called asked her if she had any arms. What?!! She refused to answer. She didn't want it put in a database that she either does or does not have arms.
Has anyone else heard about this or experienced this? I have never heard of this happening before. (This is in Austin, Texas.) I agree with my friend. It's just as bad or worse than having to fill out 101 questions for census takers (where the data is then given over to Lockheed Martin to process).
