Massachusetts Boy Pens Apology Letter to Cops for Prank Calling 911: ‘It Was a Really Bad Idea’

A Massachusetts boy with a heavy conscience asked for forgiveness in a heartfelt note after causing a local police department some grief over a prank 911 call.

The unnamed boy wrote a handwritten letter to the Somerville Police Department to apologize for taking part in a series of prank calls made to 911 on Jan. 10, officials said.

“I did something bad,” the child wrote. “I called 911 for no reason.”

After the calls were made, Officer Randy Isaacs was dispatched to the school, where he spoke to the students’ parents and the children about the importance of dialing 911 only for emergencies.

One of the boys took the message especially to heart.

It was a really bad idea,” the child wrote. “I don’t know why I did it, all I know is that it was a bad idea and I will never ever do it unles (sic) it is a emerginsy (sic). I am very sorry for what I did.”

The boy delivered the letter by hand and the department posted it online.

He ended the letter by writing: “Thank you for everything you do to keep us safe.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
