Police Ignore Six 911 Calls: Father Beaten to Death...

UK. - A father-of-two was beaten to death by drunken after police told him they were too busy to help.

James Straiton, 59, and his neighbours dialled 999 six times while the gang were threatening to smash their way into his flat.

But operators said the force was experiencing a ‘high volume’ of calls and suggested they call a non-emergency number.
