Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

Why in the world would you keep a fire extinguisher?

The Police Department Fire Department is only seconds away on 911!

Go listen. Please. And know that the couple of minutes that it takes you to hear the 911 call of a desperate woman were much, MUCH longer for her.

And take heart-- she perserveres.

Impeccable timing on acquisition of the gun, bless her heart. Chilling audio.

Fortunately for her, a friend had given her the means to protect herself. Had she NOT had a gun, the SOB would have already killed her by the time the police could arrive. Just more proof that waiting for help from "the authorities" will NOT protect one or keep one safe. Taking PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for one's one safety WILL.

In response to a comment that I had off-blog:

No, I don't think that I'm bringing back more pain for the woman who had to shoot her attacker. His family is doing so, however, having declared that he wouldn't hurt a fly, and that she made the whole thing up. One hopes that the 911 audio will shut them up about that.

Please note that no where in that short video was the name of the intended and actual victim listed.

It would seem better to think in terms of what a superb illustration this is, of why one must consider options of how to defendone's self when an attacker comes. Because the police just didn't make it in time.

And I'd be happier if that particular author would send me an email to continue this disussion.

Ended exactly as every attack should end-

Good guys 1, bad guys 0.

Too many people just don't understand that they (and no one else) are responsible for themselves. The police will not ever be there in time to save your skin. You must do that yourself.

(No offense to Matt and his fellow LEO. I'm in no way suggesting that you wouldn't try to be there in time, but the odds are very much against it.)
