depending on how far the cops where... 5 minutes after an incident (maybe 10 minutes long) so 15 minute response is pretty fast. Imagine... typical time to get to the store from my house is 6-10 minutes with intersections and bad drivers... its almost faster to walk. With roads, traffic and weather conditions the cops won't be at the situation usually until its over and done with. Criminals are long gone and the PD takes a report.

Yup. Sad, but true.

That, alone, should be enough for people to wake up and smell the cess pool. Ain't nobody gonna help you but you, initially, on the instant of an attack coming 'round the pike. Survive it ... or not.
Your best weapon is your brain. Don't leave home without it.

My sister and brother-in-law reside in a nice big safe suburban house, off of a golf course, in Acworth, Ga. Soooooooo...far away from dangerous dirty downtown Atlanta...such a long drive up I-75. Neither I nor their son can convince them to buy and learn how to use a gun. They cannot believe or conceive that they are merely attractive soft targets to burglars and robbers.

hindsight is wonderful isn't it. Foresight, is harder to achieve.

Too bad that something like that needed to happen before she could see the reality. Fortunately no one got hurt.

I agree. Being an action hero to save $ for Mcdonalds Corp. was way down on my list of reasons to get a CHL.
