I remember the last time I called 911 It took the police over 10 minutes to arrive to my home living in the middle of the city of 60k people. Someone tried to hot wire steal my vehicle from my own driveway. It looked as though he had a black thing in his hand like a tire iron. I chased him off with a baseball bat, that I much preferred to have been a 12 gauge shotgun. Whoever it was he was quite cunning to do so much to the vehicle without the alarm going off, but it finally did.
I get out there to find out why the alarm is screeching.... door's to the vehicle are wide open, fuse box under the dash open, hood to the motor is
open and the battery partially disconnected. A person violating your private property to rob you, or to do bodily harm has no rights and that's the
way it should be. A lot can happen in 10 minutes in a confrontation. I figure if he has the guts to steal my vehicle out of my driveway while I am
watching TV then he knows the consequences of his actions and forfeits his life if caught. If I had been armed that night 10 years ago I would have
shot the bastard.
