Apparently Kansans Get So Upset Over Presidential Debates They Call 911

Of all the reasons not to call 911, complaining about the country’s presidential candidates is apparently a big one.

Before the first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump started on Monday night, the Lawrence, KS Police Department reminded their community via Twitter that anger over the presidential candidates is not a good enough reason to make an emergency call.


“REMINDER We realize politics can make emotions run high, but being mad at a presidential candidate in a debate is NOT a reason to call 911,” they wrote.

How many people could have called for them to tweet this?

If a Lawrence resident had no family or friends to call, surely they could have vented their frustration through a Facebook post?

Apparently these folks were also engaged in other matters, like drinking games, enough to warrant their law enforcement to warn against excessive drinking from repeated use of the word “yuge” by the debating candidates.

That is discouraged as well. Strongly.

“Additionally, drinking games where you drink every time someone says “yuge” leads to binge drinking, and we discourage that strongly,” they said.

We can’t help but wonder why these humorous Kansas people were getting hammered and dialing 911 during the cringe-worthy debate, but certainly don’t blame them for doing either.
