Would you please explain the drama that I have caused?
I called the police...... They didn't care.
The fire department didn't care.
I posted this to let the ATS community hear what happened today... If I did anything wrong, I apologize in advance!
I just thought this was odd and worthy of its own thread... Apparently I was wrong.
He dialed 911. “The lady on the other end of the phone was quite upset with me,” Owens said. “She said we had called for a ‘non-emergency.’ How does she know?”
Concerning the 911 dispatcher’s response Tammie Conover, a Taz-Com supervisor, said she would have done exactly what Owens did. “I would have considered it an emergency,” Conover said.
The hazmat team swabbed the material. It was found to be a caustic food processing material called Calcium hydrogenphosphate dihydrate. “The hazmat team told us to rinse it out with water,” Owens said, and left.

That section includes the last month only. The white powder hoax is extensive and consumes a lot of needed resources while numbing us to white powder.
Biological Incidents/ Threats/ Anthrax Hoaxes etc

OK. Try this...
Using scotch tape- put a piece onto the mailbox doors tab. You should be able to pull a print...stick it to black poster-board.
Collect a weeks worth of prints. Find-out how many letter-carriers deliver to your mailbox, and who in your household collects the mail...
If you should encounter this powder again, you should be able to collect the print before you even discover the powder was left again, providing collecting prints before opening mailbox each day is practiced.
That's putting your tax dollars to work!
It'd be a darn shame if the culprit knew to wear gloves...edit on (3/28/1212 by loveguy because: Hey, I tried.
