Why do people think dialing 911 will save them?

    Watching this documentary on some mass shootings and these people out here calling 911 when they should be running and getting up out of there :smh:


    Real talk. 911 is a joke especially if you're in a major city like NYC. On two ocassions I dialed 911 and the operators had terrible communication skills asking dumb questions. To make things worse, help didnt come till 45 minutes later. If my life was on the line I would have been done.

    Scary Movie did a joke where the main chick called 911 and said she was a white woman in danger.

    They came 30 seconds later.

    Because you're conditioned from a young age to see them as your protector from the big scary crimunuhz.

    You learn when you're older that they're really not... In no way, shape, or form.

    According to American Police Beat, the average response time for an emergency call is 10 minutes. Atlanta has the worst response time with 11 to 12 minutes and Nashville comes in at a lightning speed of 9 minutes.

    So probably like 15 minutes in reality.

    Everyone knows 911 is not to prevent crime, but rather get the wheels churning on the next steps after a crime happens. Only common sense prevents crime (some crimes).
