why the fuck cant we text the police
lets say there is a murderer in ur house and you’re hiding behind your sofa and you do have your phone with you but you can’t call the police because the murderer might hear you
IDK about America, but if you ring 999 in the UK and you’re in a situation like that, you don’t have to say anything.
The operator will put you straight through to the police, they’ll pick up on what they hear, trace the call and send somebody over.
I thought about that, but they’ll still answer with ‘what is your emergency’, and the hypothetical murderer would hear it =/
