Going to bed the other night I noticed people in my shed stealing things.
I called the police , but was told no one was in the area to help.
They said they will send someone over as soon as possible.
I hung up. A minute later I rang again. Hello I said, I called you a minute ago because there were people in my shed. You don't have to hurry now, because I've shot them.
Within minutes there were half a dozen police cars in the area, plus helicopters and an armed response unit. They caught the burglars red handed.
One of the officers said:I thought you said you'd shot them.
To which I replied: I thought you said there was no one available.

Hmm, interesting. I'm not sure whether it's humorous, sad, or one of those "yeah!" kind of situations. The police didn't say anything about false reports or anything? The police showing up after not being available certainly makes you raise an eyebrow, eh? But, truly they can't be everywhere...we are in a society now where we've got to look out for ourselves pretty much.

I'm glad you/they got the perps, now if some hand-spanking judge and limp-wristed DA don't let'em walk....
