Man charged for making phony bomb threat 911 calls because he wanted to see police and fire respond in real life like he sees on tv
WOONSOCKET, R.I.—A Woonsocket man faces charges after police said he made a series of phony bomb threats and fake 911 calls on Wednesday night.
According to police, 25-year-old Justin Schulze called 911 and reported there were bombs at both the Stadium Theatre on Main Street and the Beacon Charter School, across the street. Police said Schulze later made calls about a murder and a shooting at 321 Main St., the building where he lives.
“He said he wanted to see police and fire respond in real life. He watches a lot of TV and he wanted to see us respond,“ said Det. Sgt. Todd Fernandes of the Woonsocket Police Department.
All of the calls turned out to be unfounded.
“At some point we started to realize that the calls were from the same number and the same male was making the those calls, and some officers even believed them to be crank calls at that point. But you have to approach every case like it’s real,“ Fernandes said.
Police were able to trace the 911 calls to a cell phone. Schulze had taken the phone from a friend of his without that person’s knowledge, police said.
Police said Schulze was watching the drama unfold around him from his room, which is near the theatre and across from the school.
And though all of the potential emergencies turned out to be false, it doesn’t mean there wasn’t any harm done.
“It’s extremely dangerous. It took up to three hours of patrol officers’ time not to mention the fire department responding with lights and sirens putting other people at risk,“ Fernandes said.
Schulze is being held on $50,000 bail with surety and was ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation.

Dumbass. Could someone show him how the tasers on T.V. work , please.
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

Or how about the pepper spray? Less than lethal bean bag rounds?
