Angry 9-year-old girl calls 911 on parents because they asked her to clean her room…
A nine-year-old girl was so angry with her parents’ request to clean up her room, she dialed 911 and reported them to the police. In Canada calls deemed to be a waste of police time could carry charges of up to $697.50 (CAD).
Here in the United States, improperly using 911 like this can carry hefty fines of up to $10,000.
Yet another spoiled brat with an overactive & severely misplaced sense of entitlement. I sense her problems are just beginning ???? https://t.co/P3QsndAPKL

A 9-year-old Canadian girl was apparently so mad her parents had asked to clean up her room, that she dialed 911, The Toronto Star reported.
Ontario Provincial Police said a division responded to a 911 call from a residence in Simcoe, Ont. on Saturday. But when they arrived, they discovered it was no emergency.
The incident prompted authorities to issue a reminder to parents and guardians to tell their children that 911 calls should only be made in emergency circumstances, the report said. More
Spare the rod and spoil the child!

Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) said officers responded to an emergency call on December 8 from a young resident of Simcoe, Ontario.
But when they arrived at the scene they discovered there was no emergency, just a trivial chore-based disagreement between a daughter and her parents, the Toronto Star reported.
Brandishing the stunt as a reckless waste of police resources, authorities took the opportunity to issue parents with a reminder about the importance of educating children about the proper uses for the emergency number.
They insisted the 911 should only be used in situations constituting an emergency.
Constable Ed Sanchuck, of the OPP, said: ‘They tie up the phone lines at the communications center, waste taxpayer money, tie up law enforcement officers and threaten lives.’ More
Somebody has evidently convinced that poor child that she has “children’s rights” over and above her parent’s rules. If she were my child she would now be cleaning the entire house from top to bottom…
I would NEVER have thought of calling the police on my parents when I was a kid!
It would have been the last thing I did alive, LOL ????
