    I never would have put the gun down. I can't believe she put the gun down.

    Lesson learned from this scenario... Once she had the gun she should have created a choke point at the bedroom door. BG opens door, she yells "don't move or I'll shoot." What happens next is up to the BG.

    Wow.
    Worse still after prying it open the dispatcher tells he to put the gun down and away from herself. Useless and nearly got her killed

    Should be required watching by the antis....I doubt it would change their view however , can't happen to them

    Just further proof that our society is to the point where many will accept being a victim over being self sufficent and independant.If the 911 dispatcher convinces her to become a victim then everyone can morn,feel sorry for,console her ect,ect.If she retains the weapon and her independance then everyone has to accept the reality that a violent felon was in her home attempting to harm her.Focus on the victim and the victims plight helps people avoid the reality of conflict.
    The easy way is always mined.

    in the first example, she was told to "put the gun down"??? before the officer even arrived? Yikes. Red line should have been the bedroom door.

    in the second example........... Damn, thats one nightmare to go through.

    in the third example...... the lady showed considerable restraint. Always in control. Gave the BG plenty of chances to stay alive. Problem was solved when there were no further "options" available. I like her, and she has spunk.

    PANIC 9-1-1 New Show A&E channel

    I just watched a new Series on A&E about people that have used Deadly Force to protect themselves,seems like it may be a great way to wake up people on "The Fence" and paints the people as being Normal and not some crazy gunslingers etc.

    Saw a little bit the other day, liked what I saw. I agree, it could be a real eye opener for some folks.
    The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.

    Will check it out. Thanks. It would be refreshing to see a positive spin.

    Don't think its strictly about 'deadly force' or home defense, but rather, 911 calls in general. The only ones I've seen thus far have been about HD situations however. But from the previews I've seen, other types of calls will be show-cased.

    Either way, its a good show. And I'm EMT-B, Advanced EMD certified with over 10 years in the field. I watched it last night after a 12 hr shift. You'd think I would have been over it for the day. :o

    SPOILER ALERT:

    I disagree with the one about the single mom barricaded in the closet with her son and a .38. The dispatcher disarmed her far too early. I would have advised her to disarm once she heard officers make entry to her apt, not long before they arrived with an intruder in the home. Also, I'd ask for a description of the RP, and what she was wearing, to provide to the officers. Just to be certain that she wasn't mistaken as one of the intruders. My .02.

    I saw the teaser for that episode. I was yelling at the TV when the dispatcher kept telling the woman to lay her gun down. Then you hear the woman start screaming in terror... and NO gunshots. They'd have to censor my response to the dispatcher if I were in that situation!!!

    Taped and saw the show afterward. I like the show in general but dislike the flashy camera work with different colors all over the place. Got to be a bit much with the actual story lines. Nebraska is correct, I was pissed that the 911 operator told the single mom to disarm herself way too early. She could have saved herself a lot of grief of almost being raped by the idiot. My wife was pissed and made the comment, I'll not disarm myself unless the gun is taken away from my cold dead fingers. (I had to laugh at that one). She said she understands the 911 operator but that 911 gal did not fully grasp the situation. To tell the mom that she may not be able to be seen as any different from the male perp is simply stupid...

    I also like the restraint the old lady had when the stoned older neighbor tried to break in. She was relatively calm in her decision making. Told the 911 op what she was doing... "I'm loading the shotgun now"... "I have the shotgun on safe now". "The intruder is going to break into the house now so I am taking the safety off the gun now"... (hearing breaking glass and her telling the perp to back off or she will shot... ) Bang...

    Over all a good show. I think they stretched it out too long by recapping almost an entire scene after a commercial break... I'll tape them and watch for a while longer. It is good stuff and I think as has been stated, will get people off the fence about self defense so that is all good... a lessons learned after each scene was good as to what to do and made for some interesting conversations with the wife... Her bottom line statement...

    "I need more ammo"... too funny!!!

    Did the whole show only cover one call?

    It sounds interesting, I'll have to check it out.

    Freedom doesn't mean safe, it means free.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

    No. 3 calls. Wasn't a bad show.
