Would you use your mobile phone to text or send video to 911 operators?
The U.S. government is trying to bring the 911 emergency service ``into the 21st century`` by looking into allowing text, photo and video reports from mobile phones.

The proposed ``Next Generation 911`` would allow emergency call centers to receive text messages and use mobile photo or video for information about the situation in progress.

The FCC also wants to introduce automatic reports coming from medical devices, car electronics, security cameras and more.

Id only use it if I were in a situation where I couldnt call.

I bet they are going to end up with a ton of people reporting things that dont need to be reported this way. They will end up spending the majority of the time sifting through the irrelevant crap just to get to the one person who is sitting in a closet while theres a burglar outside the closet door.

It might be handy in one of those movie scenarios where the girl is hiding in her bedroom from a very slowly approaching intruder and ultimately gives herself away by making too much noise.

And I bet that those people will get fined in some way with a very expensive ticket.

One time, I was in a situation where a guy pulled out a knife on one of my friends. I was too scared to call the cops, because he also had a little bit of a grudge against me. If I could've texted the police, it would've come in handy.
