...you witnessed a person getting ran over on the highway? I had a co-worker who said he saw a man get hit on the freeway when he was heading home from work. I told him he should have called 911.
Calling the cops would be a no-brainer. Not to mention, an ambulance.
I think it would be wrong, but I'm not sure if the police would do anything about it. My boyfriend and I recently called the police when we saw a man holding a gun to another man's head in a car heading down the off-ramp beside us on the freeway in Oakland. The dispatcher asked if I had the license plate, which I couldn't see because of the angle and because the car was on the other side of a landscaped median. We knew the make, model, and approximate year of the car, described the driver and gunman, and told him the name/number of the exit. He sighed, and repeated "what is the license plate number." We repeated we didn't have it, he said "thanks" and hung up on us.
I wouldn't change what I did, but if I went through that experience on a regular basis I doubt I'd continue calling the police.

This was a static from 2014. 71% is a large number I don't care if the were 250 million people on earth. Police deaths from aggressive force is too many
