    GOOD: Dallas Store Manager Shoots at 5 Armed Robbers; Police Arrive 74 Minutes Later

    Dallas Store Manager Shoots at 5 Armed Robbers Police Arrive 74 Minutes Later | R.T.B.A. Co.

    "A Dallas store manager using his handgun to fend off an attempted robbery by five armed robbers. There’s also audio of the 911 call from the Dallas store manager asking for police help because of the robbery. Reports indicate he asked for police to come because the armed men had tried to rob his store. The store manager shot at the men with a .38 Caliber revolver, sending the robbers scurrying away, and wounding one of them twice. But his call was misclassified because the operator did not understand he was saying in his frantic call that he had shot one of the robbers, and it took police an hour to arrive. In fact, it was so long, the manager went home and was called back by police when the did arrive. It takes a “good guy with a gun” to ward off five armed robbers."

    Good x 5! This happened back in May 2013 but I didn't see a thread on the forum about it. This guy took a big chance but it shows that BGs are basically cowards and hope that their victims will roll over and play nice.

    So 74 mins is a "normal" response time by DPD if you're not shooting or being shot?

    It was stated the dispatcher was new. New or not she should be suspended WITHOUT PAY pending a full investigation.

    Dallas PD needs to review their 911 call guidelines regarding armed robberies in progress. Pending the dispatcher's investigation and a review of 911 call policy I think the dispatcher should be FIRED and blackballed from 911 dispatcher employment FOREVER.

    Some of you guys should have watched the video B4 writing your comments. You would look less foolish had you of done so.

    Well, in their defense, they were only seconds away. 4,440 seconds.

    Guess we'll have to change the saying. No longer can you say "When seconds count, the police are minutes away". Now it will have to be "When seconds count, the police are hours away".

    Because we need to be fair and provide at least 2 rounds per BG. In this case, 10 rounds would have been jusssst enough!

    "Hey Bob, we got a call, guy sounds frantic, something about a robbery or something."

    "Huh. Hey, I know that address... Isn't that the head shop with the 'No Pigs Allowed' sign in the window?"

    "Oh yeah, I think you're right."

    "Sounds like an ALB call."

    "ALB?"

    "'After Lunch Break.'"

    "Heh heh"

    "Heh heh heh"

    "Heh heh heh heh heh"

    "Okay, but seriously, how do we get there? This GPS is down for some reason."

    "Hmm, well, I've got an iPhone with that new Maps app. Let's use that."

    "That works."

    (73 minutes later)

    "Okay, this is like TEN BLOCKS from where that stupid phone said it was."

    "I miss Google Maps."

    Hi NONAME, not sure what you mean? The slow response time was due to the dispatcher classifying the call as a robbery and not a robbery in progress. But no matter what, the police response was 74 minutes. I agree with you that there needs to be an investigation into the slow response time.

    Here are some more stories about the robbery:

    http://dfw.cbslocal.com/2013/05/08/d...allers-accent/

    According to this story, per Dallas PD policy, officers should have arrived on scene within 12 minutes. 12 minutes is still enough time for the store owner/employees/customers to have been dead and the BGs gone.

    I watched the video and counted 4 bad guys. The news talkers said 4 and then said 5. Not untypical for news talkers.
