    Ohio Lawmakers:

    New state bill aims to curb racially motivated fake 911 calls
    Some Ohio lawmakers are introducing a new bill that is aimed at cutting down on fake 911 calls. Democratic State Rep. Thomas West of Canton says people are calling police on Black Ohioans while they are doing things as simple as sitting in parked cars making phone calls. Under the new bill, which has yet to be filed, victims of such calls could sue in civil court. And callers could be required to complete an implicit bias training program. It’s named “Darren’s Law” after Darren Cooper, an Ohio social worker who was the target of a false call in August.
