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