Well if you read the article this is in response to what happen in Dubai. The terrorists were using cellphones to communicate with each other and with an outside source. This has nothing to do with a situation like 9/11. And please tell me how stupid I am. So far in the 10+ years I have been NYC Police Officer I have helped deliver 5 babies, been stabbed twice(once while trying to protect a wife from her crazy and abusive husband) and a lot more. So tell me what have you done, except run your mouth. Walk a day in our shoes before you condemn Police Officers.
Because oneday I might have to save your life!

First let me say thank you for the fine job you officers are doing. I have the extreme pleasure to know the Sperr family of Slain NY Trooper Andrew Sperr. I attended Grammer school with his brother and the rest of his huge family the same church and mourn a great loss. You officers are under staffed and overworked.

While I agree with this proposal, I would like to know what will be the guidelines and what will be the deciding factor on when they would implement an emergency action? I think to have a phone shut down for every little tip off would be an extreme inconvenience. While the OP was somewhat abrasive on his comment, the operative question is valid. I would like to know that I could get in touch wih my family in a crisis. Any clarification would be great!
