    @Larry Location: Richmond What type of damsel in distress are you that you always need to call 911 for help? Ya know maybe if you actually worked and didnt start trouble with your neighbors you wouldnt need to ever call them?

    Well you see jimmy, or in this case Wow the fire department has special protective gear suited for this. The police department does not have the same type of gear. I hope this has helped you Jimmy, or in this case Wow, and rember the next time you are mouth-ragging the police they could just ignore you when you are crying and need help. Have a great day!
