The Cops.

Never trust them.

And NEVER call 911.

Like ObamaCare, 911 has helped at least one person, so all is justified.

NEVER call 911 (0)

From the linked work:

"Don’t call 911. Obviously, there are exceptions, but the sad lesson is, there are fewer than you’d think."

Exceptions. Yes, exceptions. Ay, there's the rub.

Reminds me of the "Don't talk to the police" video dude. https://www.youtube.com/watch?... [youtube.com]

Dude says he will NEVER, under ANY circumstances, talk to the police. As in NEVER. As in, he admits no circumstances where he would EVER talk to a cop.

If your mom just got raped, the rapist started running that-a-way 10 seconds ago, and the cops are here... and you are not going to talk to them. Mmmmmkay

Your link was insightful. It highlighted some of the Kafkaesque qualities of modern society. And gave good reason to pause before talking to them. But please... let's be credible here and not hyperbolic ..the "NEVER" stuff might make for great soundbites but some grounding in reality would be swell.

No qualifications at all to your "advice"? None whatsoever? Really?

One might think you had an agenda rather than coming from wisdom.
