    City Cops can have a good response time. Our time in the country is over 20 minutes. How much can go wrong in 20 minutes? I'd say that it seems like an eternity when bad things happen.

    A couple of minutes seems like an eternity when the crap is hitting the rotating blades. I hydroplaned in a car one time and did over a dozen 360s going down the highway. It probably didn't last 15 seconds, but it felt like hours until I came to rest off the road over a small embankment without a scratch on anything. Even brief intense situations leave you feeling exhausted when it's over.

    Yes, we (and our residents) are lucky that way. Our little city has one cop per 500 residents and usually 3 or 4 patrolling 6sq miles at a time.
    We are also surrounded by nice townships that also have well staffed agencies. One of the "rougher" and more rural townships that borders us to the east, has horrible staffing and response times are in the 20-30 minute range. We end up picking up a lot of their calls.

    I live in one of those bordering townships, however, my neighborhood is unique. I have four coworkers, as well as six other LEO's that I have worked closely with all on my block. Response time tends to be good in my neighborhood.

It was like a light coming on. Sheeple either can't or don't understand the thought processes of BGs...which may be why they lack SA and find themselves in bad situations. Of course, bad situations can find anyone, anywhere, at anytime.
    Uh, oh here is that "good neighborhood" thing again. What you pointed out to her is exactly what I have tried to get through to some of my friends who move into a nice neighborhood, only to find that crime happens there as well. They actually seem to be shocked that somebody might think that they have valuables in their homes.

    This is one of the reasons I always carry, even in the house. Someone comes through one of my doors or windows uninvited, they are leaving in a body bag.

    We had a rash of the same senerio here. They would either break in while someone was home or they had just left the home annd returned to interupt the BG's. In one instance they got to see the bussiness end of a 12 ga. no shots fired but i bet they soiled themselves.

    Someone that has no concerns about someone being home when they break in is a very dangerous human being that doesn't care if he lives or not.
    Or on Drug's & does'nt care who they have to hurt to get that next fix

    It might not take long before he breaks into the wrong house and the owner is prepared to deal with him. Maybe the third strike and he will be out.
    If we are lucky that will be the ending before he/she escalates

    These entries seem pretty brazen and reckless. Is Ohio generally pro-gun or anti-gun? Just curious as to how many homeowners might be armed.

    Probably so desperate to keep those substance flowing through his head that he's breaking in to get things that are easy to sell on the street that's he's willing to take the risk of confronting people in their own home.

    Or of course the substances flowing through his head have made him so stupid that he doesn't even consider the possibility of people being home.

    Most likely a combination of both.

    Hopefully the next house gives him the proper response:
