Ruling: 911 cannot be sued for failure to protect
A Camden, NJ court has ruled (as all or almost all courts have) that the 911 service cannot be sued for failure to respond to a call. The family of a kidnap/murder victim sued, over failure of 911 and police to respond to a call from a witness of the kidnapping.
Here's some detail:
"According to investigators, the caller telephoned police from his car in the PATCO lot to say that he saw a woman struggling with two men. The caller, whom police would not identify, said a woman was screaming as she was being dragged into a car. The man followed the abductors' car through the parking lot and then lost sight of it, investigators said. All the while he was on the phone with police dispatch, they said.
The dispatcher dismissed the incident as a domestic dispute and never relayed the information to patrol officers, according to investigators."
And in the People's Republic of New Jersey, you can forget about having the means to defense yourself. That's reserved for people with connections to those of importance, and clearly this woman being raped, and the man calling 911 were not deemed important enough by their betters.
And they want to bring this paradise to the rest of America too.

Surely the woman should have been like Rosie O'Donnell and hired a bodyguard if she was going to be out at night.

From the comments:
Christine Lyn Eberle was abducted and killed by Kyshoane and Marcus. Anybody want to bet that this is another unreported black on white hate crime?
Aw, you know that "hate crimes" only happen when the perp is white. I bet their lawyers will be blaming it on the "racist" woman for resisting their amorous advances.
Lets keep an eye on this and see how they whitewash this.
