"We are getting numerous requests from individuals all over the country--some even from other countries related to the Council's recent resolution," police chief Chris Magnus said in a statement released by the mayor's office. "Richmond now seems to be known as the 'resource or helpers' for folks from many states with a myriad of mental health and other problems." The department does not have the resources to field such a large number of calls, Magnus said.
[Mayor] Butt said his office has been receiving requests for help as well, including a message from a woman living in her car in Carson City, Nevada, who says she has been electronically stalked but has received no help from law enforcement.Okay, that's bad. What's worse is that the only 2 votes against the resolution were from Mayor Butt and Councilor Pimple. And it's not The Onion.
