“Get yo kiiiiiiiids…..”
10-Year-Old Boy Calls 911 To Avoid Bedtime

In a case of sleepy-time justice, a Massachusetts boy got more than he bargained for when he called 911 this week to complain that his mother was making him go to bed: a visit from police.
Dan Davis, 10, just wanted to stay up late during school vacation. When he told his mom he was going call the cops on her, she dared him to go ahead, according to NBC affiliate WHDH.
“He’s like, ‘I’m going to call the cops on you,’” Shamayne Rosario, Davis’ mother, told the 911 operator.
Davis dialed 911 shortly after 8 p.m. but, suddenly shy, hung up quickly without actually speaking with the dispatcher. Following protocol, the Brockton, Mass., police department returned the call. Rosario explained the situation, even offering her son a chance to speak.
“Dan, would you like to talk to the police?” Rosario is heard saying on the return call, “because you can’t be calling 911 when there is no emergency.”
SMH. Bet he won’t try that again.
