Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, June 12, 2019

The bill, which has already faced a handful of public hearings in the Judiciary Committee, says a person "commits the offense of unlawfully summoning a police officer" when they call the police on someone for a reason other than criminal activity and "a reasonable person would not consider the other person to pose a risk to any person or property."

Good luck proving it.
Cops answer ridiculous calls all day long.
Every neighborhood has multiple busybodies calling the cops for non-crimes.

Some turd called the cops on us two weekends ago for 20 rounds of target practice at our hunting land. Literally in the middle of the woods 1,000's of feet from a home, in a ravine so we would have a backstop for the rounds.
About an hour later, a sheriff arrived, apologized for even showing up, but said he was obligated to follow up. We offered to take him to the shooting area but he declined and repeated that he was sorry for bothering us.
We told him he was about to get called again because we were going to now go back and shoot hundreds of rounds to prove a point. He said that's what he'd do, and told us to enjoy the day.
You hear gunfire in that part of NY daily. There's even a skeet shooting range a mile away that you can hear all weekend.

Darn. So you mean I can't call the cops on people who drive green volkswagons anymore? I feel that people who drive green volkswagons are suspicious.

Pull out your damn cellphone and film the assault. Haven't you noticed in all these BBQ becky videos the racist heffers are always complaining about people filming? They complain because they're in the wrong, and people film for the exact reason of proving it.

Yes - the world we live in is full of the super powerful computing and camera devices that we carry and also use as phones. Virtually everyone has one. However it wouldn't help in cases like 101's.

Sounds like a good law. Goodbye, doxxers!

Of course you would, that is precisely how you think.

What I find hilarious are who you think is disrupting the peace, like the Occupy Wallstreet movement, anti-war activists and progressives.

It's good to know you have excellent eyesight. Have you ever considered archery? It takes considerably more skill, and it's almost a silent sport. Unless you Dukes of Hazard it up with nitroglycerin tips.. which you would undoubtedly try.

But seriously, you don't have any concern about the noise? What time of day were you murdering the hillside? Have you considered offering your neighbors lemon squares?

Does this law cover SWATing? That activity gets people killed.

Wow. The amount of abuse this law allows is scary. Most people aren't thinking about this in the reverse (mainly because most of DR is Liberals and are racist towards white people). But all this means is that a black person can call about a white person doing something wrong and the cops, especially the racist ones, can get there and arrest the black person regardless of what the white person is doing. This literally gives racist cops more freedom to be racist. The sad part is most people for it will think my example is absurd because the cop will get in trouble for abusing the law...but that doesn't help the black guy dead on the ground who the cop shot because he resisted arrest when the cop was abusing his power. And, during investigations if they can't prove the cop was abusing the law, he will get off scott-free because they can't prove wrongdoing. Such a shame how laws in this country are starting to harm racial relations than help them, all because people can't think logically.

Plausible. Outside of Oregon and Eugene (maybe) Oregon has a long history of being disgustingly racist.

It doesn't criminalize prejudiced 911 calls; it just lets you sue the caller for $250. Try reading the article before getting so upset about an infringement on your right to be a racist POS.

Why would he read the article, when he could just make stuff up and use those lies to insult liberals (and also take the opportunity to call them racist, to try to normalize racism so that Republicans don't looks so bad with their ACTUAL racism)?

#10 | Posted by Hagbard_Celine, What you don't know about all those Japanese framers that were lynched, burned out, and chased out of the state of Washington and Oregon around Seattle and Portland? Selective history of the liberal mind set.

Today, Doc, the cities are much further removed from the past than the rural areas.

"The south get painted with crap that happened 50 years ago."

When given the opportunity, (see: repeal of the VRA) the first thing the south did is go back to their old ways.

Oh, BS. My kids are registered, so is my ex. It is almost automatic when you get a drivers license. Too many elected officials in the deep south are black. I think they can protect their own.
