I have followed a couple of these stories and have found that the police have actually charged a couple of them. Off the top of my head one of them was a woman who call the police on a little black girl selling lemon aid. They showed the white woman who did the calling and tried to deny and failed. Calling the police about a crime that obviously is not is a criminal offense and should be enforced by the police - that is their damned job!
