Plymouth man "rang police to report a ghost"

21 posts in this topic

POLICE may be used to mysteries but one person rang the Devon and Cornwall force to report he had been visited by the Ghost of Christmas Past.

The caller from Saltash presumably wanted officers to alert the team from the film Ghostbusters – or even Scooby Doo’s gang.

So drugs and mental illness then rather then ghosts.

Forget about issuing police with firearms and tasers...need Proton packs.

I'd love to say the Police had more important things to do but they're only interested now if there is a fine involved.

I'd say they got a good laugh when the call came in.

Its interesting how people always say

"We closed too many asylums", "drugs and mental illness"...

No, its just people. People are stupid in the general sense and will jump to the most insane solution possible based on paranoia or recent dealings. Since critical thinking is no longer popular, and common sense is no longer common, all you have to do is insist that they are on fire and they will believe it to be so.

I would find it hard to take that one seriously too.

I've always wanted to text that "Dodger" thing and send them a prank. Maybe he should have done that, "Guy hasn't paid, he's 7'2'', approximately 300 years old, wearing bright purple cloak and hood, carrying an ash quarterstaff".

I'd be satisfied just getting the automated response saying thanks :D

Just mad people who belong in an asylum.

Some people with paranoia are not only a danger to themselves, but potentially to others too.

We closed too many asylums. :tu:

Some feel its safe to speak on what they have been experiecing.Though you have folks that will make up things for attetion. Skeptics like to trash stuff like this anyway.Some of the cases may be true others just bs.At any rate wether fake calls or not people have long been afraid of ridicule for paranormal things that could be happening.Either way I have had paranormal encounters so nobody can tell me nothing.

In all my years I have never met a soul who wouldn't admit to having something unexplainable happen to them at least once in their lives. I've had experiences, since I was a child, of things that are not easily explained by our simple undesrtanding of physics and our 3 dimmensional space.

Having said that, I am a skeptic. I am skeptical of even my own experiences because they haven't been explained sufficiently. It doesn't mean they didn't happen, it just means that my explanation of them may be insufficient. Being a skeptic doesn't mean you're close-minded. It simply means you continue to look for explanations that can fit our model of the world before blindly leaping toward a "belief". Continuing to pursue this will either show the phenomenon to be a natural occurence, or that our model has to be changed.

Edit: for bad grammar. And probably missed some.

I never heard about this until now; wow people really have been cooking up stories.

I doubt they took him seriously, nobody would.

For the last time people, meds and booze might sound like a good combo in theory but in practice it's an awful choice! And... done.
