The thread title is a much more accurate description/summary of the article.

Instead, we get this crap:

Uptown family concerned by lack of 911 response after break-in, several calls to authorities.


On March 16, Bice's family was fast asleep when they were woken up around 2 a.m., to someone trying to break in to their home.

Bice believes it wasn't the door, but barking from Molly that stopped the intruder in their tracks.

So, she did what anyone would do. Grabbed her phone and dialed 9-1-1.

She got no answer.

She documented her calls for help: two to 911; two to the NOPD's non-emergency line; and one to NOPD's Second District. The final call was answered and Bice confirms an officer showed up two hours after the attempted home invasion.

Now the Riverbend resident does own a gun, and there's a reason why.

"I think someone who would break the door down with that force had a serious intention," said Bice pointing out the damage to her front door.

You did the right thing ma'am. You, did, the, right, thing.

Own or get owned.

CA and the North Eastern Socialist Block (NY, CT, NJ, MD, DC) of the Divided States has decided that the average citizen does not have a right to protect him or herself.

Thats absolutely incorrect. The right and duty to protect ourselves primarily falls on the individual.

Justices Rule Police Do Not Have a Constitutional Duty to Protect Someone .

I read a thread on here a while ago about how the chief of police in Detroit has actually stated that if you call 911, you have to be ready to handle the situation yourself, because there's no guarantee that the authorities will show up. Understaffed and overworked, that kind of thing. It's flabbergasting.

Absolutely blows my mind that people still think the police and 911 are these instant action forces.

How can you live your life into adult age and never experience the utter fail that is calling the cops?

Maybe these people still think "never happen to me?"

Regardless, at least now they see the world for what it really is.

Thing I learned from all the news and articles of Cops shooting people in the US

1) Don't call the cops
2) Don't depend on the cops
3) Don't travel to the US

Dangers
1) Being shot by a cop
2) Cop not coming out to help you in time (or at all), then being shot.

I love that image at the top, it represents the official position quite accurately.

The cops arent coming. If they do, it wont be in time.

I'd rather have a gun at my fingertips, than the Police on the phone.

Know what I mean?

Surely before going to bed you rig a shotgun infront of every exterior door/windows before going to bed? at least if they survive the initial blast you have got a loud wake up call giving you time to break out the serious stuff and start mixing the quick lime to save on calling the cops

Actually, that would be quite illegal.

As for the family in the article, welcome to the same reality that tens of millions of people in rural America have known about for decades. When seconds count, the police are only 45 minutes away...if you're lucky.

I just saw a commercial for some crappy home alarm company that featured a speaker so when the alarm went off they show this numbnuts operator with a headset saying "identify yourself! the police have been called!"

Naturally the burglar ran away terrified. Because that's what happens in real life.


I wonder if somehow all these alarm companies that portray the timid burglar/attacker immediately fleeing can be sued.

Would be nice to see a realistic portrayal of alarms screeching for five, ten, twenty minutes while the house is emptied or the occupants attacked and the police arriving to an empty home with chalk in hand ready to draw the outlines and perps nowhere to be seen.

HAHA here it is:


So while you're getting your head bashed in or stabbed in the stomach you'll hear that guy saying "Stop, stop it right now!"

Yeah, I can only imagine how well that would work in places I've lived in the past. I'm sure the intruder would have been terrified knowing that the nearest neighbor was almost a mile away and that the local sheriff's office another 20 or so...and that they only had about half a dozen deputies for an area about a third of the size of the entire state of Rhode Island.

You call the police so they can write a report about the extent you got your @ss whooped. Our Leo response time is horrible in my rural area.

Unless they hear "shots fired"..Oh....here comes the cavalry.

In my very rural area, nearest cop an hour away. Even shots heard would be ignored, as they would think it's just someone out headlight deer hunting at night.

Print this out for your front door...

How sad is it that people feel safer going it alone rather than call the "legal professionals"?

In the UK since we call the police, if the incident requires an armed response you can ask for one and an armed policeman will show up. If its a "normal" crime aka theft, robbery, assault you dont need to specify and one will be out shortly, which for me wouldnt take them long at all, i live a mile from the police station.

I have never made an emergency call in my life. Once there was a car crash near by house, i ran to help, i was there 30-60 seconds after the 'thud', but the police had already been called, so i stayed encase of a fire in the car or somthing needed the person dragged out, police arrived a few minutes later, job done, went home. Course i live in a town of 50,000 not new york!! point is that im not scared to call the police at all.

Thats nice! Since the UK, Scotland and hell even throw Ireland in... are smaller than our state of Texas, and you have a much larger population density per landmass... then I am not surprised you call the police. I bet they come out armed with their billy clubs.... about 2 minutes too late to have any effect on the problem since it would have already been over.

The US is over 31 times the size of the UK and we have less than 7x the population.

While thats' true, New York for example has the same population as London and i think New York counts as a larger area, so there is one place we may have more density, also where most gun crime occurs for us, and theres many more gun cops to call there too and they try not to take too long, but we have one more tiny detail, our road networks are tony, narrow windy and bad traffic, although less jams!!

sure.. New York metro has a larger area than London metro.. but not by much.. now take the areas most affected in both cities and compare them.. you will see a big difference, weighing more heavily on London.
