That being said, even ONE minute is a very long time to wait for help while someone is trying to harm you.
You can neither afford, nor do you want, enough cops to ensure that one will respond "immediately", if by immediately you mean fast enough to save everyone.

This lady has clearly lost her mind!!! I just hope she never has to find out the hard way that is very wrong in a very life ending way!
FBI Statistics indicate that less than 20 percent of 911 calls for assistance in defense of violent assaults/crimes are answered in under 5 minutes.I am very proud of my agency's emergency response time of 3 minutes or less.
That is an excellent response time. I was informed the other day that my county was doing much better than they had the year before. Although its not "official" for this year yet...since we still have a few days to go...our response time is averaging just over 23 minutes for the entire county.
This is a very rural community with 85 percent of the county population of around 59,000 with in a 12 mile area. The other part of the county is Ozark Mountain and very sparsely populated. The problem is...if you happen to be at the S.O. or in city limits when you get a 911 call on the other end of the county, it could take over 1 hour of travel time to get there, and thats if you stepped it up.
Thats not unusual for the northern part of Arkansas. You incorporated city's with their own Police Dept's. have much better response times but if you live out in the country you had better be able to take care of a violent encounter yourself, because the only help you are going to get is whatever YOU provide.
Those are prepared may survive it...and those that aren't wont.
Thats the bottom line.
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

No disrespect to the police.But,the way I look at it. The police are just there to clean up after the parties over.I would never put my life on the line waiting for the police to protect me or mine.
