No, id probably issue the person a beating & then call the police, if it were you, Id ask if you wanted to stay for dinner or something. Just absurd that 911 is used so frequently these days, for some of the dumbest, most ridiculous shit.
So you would still call the police, which is exactly the same as calling 911 in that situation that occurred.

You contradicted yourself


Again, I was being sarcastic..... I would call the police, but only if he were doing something to harm someone else, or rob the place. You can call the police w/o using 911 to do so.....who was he harming for them to call 911? thats for emergency's right? a guy making a hamburger isnt an emergency.

Well, the dude was carrying a stun gun too. I'm sure he probably came off as unbalanced. You work in a place where you are responsible for the safety of your patrons and employees, and a weirdo comes in like he owns the place, you probably do whatever is necessary to diffuse the situation in the quickest manner possible.

Calling 911 doesn't seem like a bad call.

If said weirdo comes into your home and starts rustling up some grub, administering a beatdown first might seem more appropriate than picking up a phone and calling the police.

Two different scenarios.

True dat. BUT again, this absurdity to always call 911 as if some mergency's taking place, is what i was talking about moreso than anything else. Getting your order wrong @ McDonalds DOES NOT WARRANT a person calling 911, sorry. People take advantage of it, true you never know with kooks like the hamburger guy, but still. Calling 911 b/c your cat gets stuck in a tree is stupid. I bet people have done it too.

I do think people abuse 911 for downright silly reasons.

I totally agree with you, especially the example you used of the when the person called 911 about their hamburger, but in the  case of the topic the I think it was legit they called, and I seriously wondered what you thought the people in the Cornette tape should have done.

Much like you, I am a big dude and I also have been a bouncer and security around the country, and would try to handle things myself, (although even at my size, 99.9% of the time I talk the people out of being an idiot without violence) but many times at places like Dennys etc. the staff is either mostly female, teens, or smaller people, and IMO they handled the situation the right way by calling 911.

911 is for emergency calls, and most people use it for that.

Sure there are times that it is used incorrectly, but to say that this case was wrong is stupid, because look at the guy, who knows what he had in mind, and he was found with an illegal stun gun.

Bet your ass I call 911 for anything that happens around my house where the police are needed, because it is much quicker than dialing out a 7 digit phone number to get the same dispatcher

I try to handle things myself too, with the least amount of violence. I just thought it was another case of being a little too quick to immediately call 911, as most folks do almost automatically. Its as if thats everyones answer to their problems, calling 911. I get why the folks freaked out, your explanation is why I thought the situation was crazy & why I commented like I did. We've all read where people jump the gun a little too quickly & call 911 for some of the dumbest reasons.

Its because of the way the laws are applied.  I cannot legally go up to someone who walks onto my property and deck him when he is trespassing, I will be charged(I have had it happen before), BUT if that person charges at me first, I am allowed to defend myself and not be charged

I am not allowed to shoot someone who is breaking into my car in my garage, but if they charge at me, I am allowed to shoot the person, but I am allowed to shoot the person if they are in my house without them coming at me.
