Georgia Police Receive Blatantly Racist Call - And Do Exactly the Right Thing
In Snellville, Georgia, a police unit demonstrated exactly how law enforcement should respond to racist callers.
In this diverse Atlanta suburb, police received a 911 call from a caller who said, “This is going to sound really bad but I really don't care. There is a little white baby...and no one in the car was white. I know that sounds really bad but there are so many missing children.”
The police department not only chose not to respond to this call, but they even took to Facebook explain why they don't want to respond to such calls:
In an interview with the local news, Captain Perry said the staffer who took the call has never refused a call before. He also suggested an alternate response for residents who think they may see suspicious activity involving an infant, rather than calling the police, saying, “For them to just say,'Oh this little boy is so cute, is he your son or are you baby-sitting him?' That way the parent can give you a response back and let you know without you asking all the questions yourself and being intrusive.”
