You might have to wait longer than 15 minutes for the cops to show. Unfortunately, you might not have 15 minutes DENVER (AP) — Authorities are investigating whether Denver police responded quickly enough to a woman who was fatally shot nearly 15 minutes into a 911 call about her husband, who she said was hallucinating and asking her to shoot him. According to court documents, a detective who listened to the 911 call said he could hear her scream and then a gunshot. This isn’t a “If she only...

Cops will simply lock themselves in the next car until it’s safe to come out A man who was brutally stabbed by Brooklyn subway slasher Maksim Gelman two years ago had his negligence case against the city dismissed in court yesterday, despite the fact that two transit officers had locked themselves in a motorman's car only a few feet from him at the time of the attack. Emphasis mine. As Unix-Jedi said in the conversation we were having, if you lock yourself away while others are being...

The cops have nobody to send to your house 'Uh, I don’t have anybody to send out there. You know, obviously, if he comes inside the residence and assaults you, can you ask him to go away? Do you know if he’s intoxicated or anything?' the officer, who identified himself as Ray, told the caller. You know what is a good way to ask someone to go away? A .357 to the chest.

To make sure your murder is at least recorded for posterity A Dallas-area woman can be heard pleading for help in a 911 call as her ex-husband breaks into the house before killing her and then himself.

Her former husband used to be a police officer in Arlington and with the Cedar Hill Independent School District. Let’s look at the myriad of points here. An ex cop, one of the few...

The 911 operator may forget to actually, you know… send the police You can clearly hear the criminal in the background of the 911 call. Dispatch tapes obtained by CALL7 Investigators also shows a dispatcher telling Frei five times that police are on the way. But they weren’t. "We're sitting here watching somebody, who's this far away from getting into your house -- with a door that's got glass you could punch -- unlock the door, and walk in. And you expect the police to come and...

Or in this case, the many knifed man This is the astonishing moment a crazed attacker stormed into a supermarket armed with an arsenal of knives including a hockey stick with a blade on the end. David Millington, 37, then launched an attack on a security guard at a Morrisons in Wolverhampton over a grudge he had held since he was seven years old. He went to the supermarket wearing a tool belt that contained kitchen knives and a makeshift shield, the city's crown court heard. The...

Cops are busy shooting their partner through their own hand and will probably be more than a few minutes away.

IMHO, any caliber works, but go for broke. Jeff, I hope you have at least a 12g shotgun handy in your house. At some point, Deb Frisch is going to act on her impulses. I want you anti's who read me to pay close attention to that posting. I will give you a little background. Deb Frisch is insane and an alcoholic to boot. She latched on to Jeff Goldstein's blog and threatened his son. Death threats, if I recall correctly.  Jeff sought out legal action against her and got a permanent...

From the lovely and talented Breda comes this story "He puts the dollar on the counter with the crackers and then, boom he's pulling out the gun," said Poland. The clerk can't get the register to open, upsetting the gunman. The manager hits the panic button. What happens next shocks everyone. A customer, believed to be in his sixties, makes a split second decision to help. He grabs two bottles of beer and smashes one over the back of the robber's head. The...
