Why wait for the Postal Service? Two children call 911 for Santa
Two young kids in upstate New York weren't going to mess around with slowpoke letters to the big man in the red suit this season.
Instead, they dialed 911.
Police in Kingston responded Sunday to a 911 call from two children, 4 and 6, asking to speak either to the police chief or Santa Claus, according to the Times Herald-Record. It was unclear what they were seeking.
Officers showed up at their home, interviewed the family and instructed the children about the proper use of emergency service.
In other words, it's naughty, not nice.
