Memeing law into existence: San Fran introduces the CAREN Act


CNN:

It may soon be illegal to make discriminatory, racially biased 911 calls in San Francisco.

The “CAREN Act” (Caution Against Racially Exploitative Non-Emergencies) was introduced on Tuesday at a San Francisco Board of Supervisors meeting by Supervisor Shamann Walton.

The ordinance‘s name is a twist on “Karen,” the name social media gives people making racially biased 911 calls.

Beautiful. I’ve never wanted to be the person who comes up with acronyms for things more.
