Police reveal paranormal call-outs

Police officers in England and Wales have attended numerous paranormal call-outs in the last 3 years.
The recent rise in popularity of paranormal TV shows such as 'Ghost Hunters' has brought with it a subsequent increase in the number of people reporting cases of paranormal activity within their own homes.

Recently released statistical figures across England and Wales have revealed that more than 277 calls pertaining to paranormal phenomena were received over the last three years. These range from claims of demonic possession to reports of ghost and poltergeist sightings.

Some of the most bizarre examples include a call from a man in Devon who insisted that he'd been visited by the Ghost of Christmas Past, a train passenger who claimed that the London to Edinburgh line was being frequented by warlocks and the strange case of a caller from Hertfordshire who called the police on the basis that they believed that their partner was "some kind of vampire".

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'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'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

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.

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.

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.
