There’s Something Seriously Wrong in America

Where some people evidently think getting a bad manicure is actually an emergency.

A Volusia County woman was arrested after several 911 calls were made complaining about a bad manicure.  The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office says on Sunday Cynthia Colston, 44, from Deltona, was fighting with her nail technician at Central Nails on Elkcam Boulevard in Deltona because she apparently didn’t like the length of her nails.  During the fight the nail technician was slightly injured but it was Colston who called Volusia County Sherriffs deputies to the salon. Investigators say while one deputy was inside trying to settle the dispute over payment, Colston was calling 911 again, for the fourth time. She called two times after her original 911 asking when deputies would arrive. With no emergency, and a deputy already on the scene, Colson was arrested and charged with misuse of the wireless 911 system and taken to the Volusia County Branch County Jail in Daytona Beach.

How is that an emergency?  And how far curved in are we on ourselves as a nation that we actually have citizens who believe they have the right to tie up emergency services because their nail job wasn’t satisfactory?  There really is something seriously amiss in our Country.  And I know what it is: selfishness and selfcenteredness rule.

    Police: Tax- financed enforcers of an individual’s will.

    Turning the other cheek and giving up your shirt as well often seem to have been replaced by “Where’s my cherry on top?” these days.
