    ''Kind of long ten minute wait'' Why the hell did it take cop's ten minute's to get there?

    Depends where you are. People don't want to give departments more money until a methhead zombie is beating down their door. Also, Friday and Saturday nights are usually busy. When a crackhead was at my door, punching me, it took the deputies 18 minutes. It took two rounds of pepper spray, the first didn't last long enough and he came back for more.

    Ten minutes is really pretty quick for most of the places Ive lived.

    Im glad the gentleman made out ok. Sad that someone he'd been trying to help would seek to rob him. But that seems to be the general answer to honest help now.

    Ten minutes is really not bad around here either. Glad he didn't have to shoot the Bg's. Gratitude seems to as lost as kindness is today. Sad.

    If this had happened in a remote location like Henton West Virginia or some places in central Virginia, I'm sure the wait time could have exceeded 45 minutes. Yet the anti-gun will always resort to the "call the police who will save the day" mentality. Why would you need a gun. Some people must believe that Superman and Batman must really exist.

    Unless there has actually been a shooting, average response time where I live is 1hr. 45 min. IF they show at all.

    Our country is really retreating into that police will defend you mindset--and that is just not the case. Watch any news and you will see a dozen police cars with lights flashing and them standing around a crime scene protecting evidence. Your protection is up to you. LEO cannot be everywhere all the time nor should he be. Take the law into your own hands if you want to live--or one can dial 911 and wait for crime scene investigators to figure out who killed you.

    That and LEOs are not required to put themselves in danger to save your life.

    I read thread after thread, and have to wonder, which is worse,

    --LEO attitude-I really need to see just a little more arrogance,

    sanctimony, disregard, and disdain; for those you're

    supposed to be protecting and serving

    --LEO brutality-who's worse, the BGs, or the cops? BTW,

    should this be a question we could even consider asking?

    --LEO response time priorities-the cows out of the barn,

    after the person's been shot, dimbulb. Let's consider

    prioritizing the folks with the higher chances for survival, for a

    change...

    --LEO firearms accuracy--shooting bystanders, the wrong people,

    and fellow officers? This isn't just grab a gun, start pulling the trigger

    as quickly as possible, and the devil take the hindmost. You do

    realize that, right?


    Might we not be safer, if we simply embraced our gun rights,

    loaded up, and took on the BGs ourselves? Camden, N.J.

    may have been on to something, when they laid off

    their entire police force.


    Because the cure is getting worse than the disease...
