But EVERYONE should be allowed to call 911 to complain about a pizza place, just like Pat says. :P

I think the US is becoming more of a police state -- there's no question. However, the woman who repeatedly called about pizza needs to be disciplined.

The story makes me wonder if the pizza place didn't have a good reason to not deliver to her in the first place. Kinda wonder what kinda of calls she made to them ... - Apple Valley, CA -
