Five-year-old TyLon Pittman from Mississippi recently called the cops to protect his house from the Grinch stealing his toys during Christmas.
USA Today wrote the following on the situation:
TyLon Pittman, a 5-year-old Mississippi boy, knew he was too little to take on the Grinch all by himself, so having identified the threat, he took action. TyLon called 911 to report that he did not want the Grinch to come steal his Christmas.
What happened was that Byram (Miss.) Police Officer Lauren Develle heard about it and wanted TyLon to know that his holiday was safe.
“Our dispatcher posted a status on Facebook that she had received a call from a little boy … and he told her he thought the Grinch was going to be coming to steal his Christmas,” she said. “I asked her to send me his address.”
His family posted a video to Facebook of Pittman meeting with the police over the urgent crisis.
I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this move. I’d give a green light to setting up machine gun nests around the house, and keeping claymores around the tree to secure the property. You’d hate to have to start Christmas by spraying rounds from a M249. You’d absolutely hate to have to do it, but it might be worth the cost to protect Christmas and the presents.
What message are we sending if we’re not willing to do whatever is necessary to protect one of our greatest holidays? This young guy called the police to ensure the security of Christmas. That’s a great first step. The next step would be to secure yourself a couple flame throwers.
And to be honest, I’m not sure anybody is really paying enough attention to this Santa character. Everybody knows the Grinch is bad news, but is anybody recognizing how many alleged breaking and entering crimes Santa has committed? We can’t allow one man to have all that power. Might be time to shut things down until we know what the hell is going on around here.
