Unfortunately, I don't believe this was reported in the news, so I did not put it in the Good, Bad, Ugly forum.
My extremely liberal gun-hating co-worker was alerted by his House Alarm Monitoring service (not sure which one) that he had an alarm going off at his house and the police were alerted. He left immediately for home, across town, and made it in about 10 minutes. He waited, correctly, for the police to arrive before entering the home. After 35 minutes from the alarm companies call, the police arrive to make sure the house was empty and take a report. He had a lot of things in plan sight of his windows and they were all stolen (acoustic guitar, tv, laptops, etc). I posed the question to him about "what if he was home". The burglars may have been armed. They may not have even robbed him at all. Things could have went a dozen different ways. My point to him was that it took 35 minutes for the police to arrive to a burglary in progress. I used that to make my point of why I carry. The police may or may not be there to protect me.
For the record, this is not a slight on the Dayton Police Dept. I do not know why it took so long to respond. It takes roughly 10 minutes to get to the farthest point of anywhere in Dayton, but I don't know if they were tied up with something else. The point is, they may be tied up with something else when it comes to my own situation.
He still said he would not own a gun.... <sigh> I just don't understand the mindset... I can't. And this will be the problem until the end of time. Conservatives and Liberals minds just don't meet. We live in different realities.
