Recently in Sacramento, a young girl thought it was funny to create a sign that read "Help me Shes Not My Mom!! Help!!" and hold it up while in the backseat of her mom's car.
A passing car saw the sign and called the police and police officers soon pulled the car over.
The mom had no idea what the daughter was doing in the back seat at the time and both were allowed to go free. Six patrol cars were occupied with this false alarm instead of patrolling and meeting legitimate needs of the community. Police cautioned parents to know what their kids are up to at all times.
