    What about when the mayor calls the chief directly to initiate a non-recorded dispatch? I bet that response time is impressive.

    Well, yes. Even a two minute response time can be too late. If the victim is lucky enough to even get to a phone and connect.

    I wonder what the point is here?

    Sadly most anti gun people just don't "want to" see or hear this. They are the "don't confuse me with facts, my mind is made up" type. Of course when they become a victim and find out how "dial a prayer" really works it's too later. For those who survive most just blame everyone else and still think they don't need a gun. When these kind talk to me I just shrug and say "matters not to me, the bad people have to eat too."

    Seattle is proof! When danger is only seconds away ... the SPD will show up next Tuesday. Other Departments may vary. SPD is now required to call arrested law breakers "community members". Huh??? I do respect and salute the women and men who serve in PDs. Its the politicians who keep messing things up for everyone. JMHO that's all.

    You'd get a better response posting here for help. Better armed response too.

    So the last time my wife called the cops in Seatac (shots fired near our house) They told her to expect a 30 minute wait, 4 hours later she called back and they said they where unable to respond at this time.

    The time before that (shots fired near our house) I didn't bother to call it in (2AM) The next day the found the body in the car 200 feet from my back door. Figured "next time I should probably call it in"

    A LOT of the "us" did this to themselves too. The "I can't vote for that SOB so I stayed home", or "their all the same so I did not bother". Every time they do that they elect the one who won.

    Call 911 and tell them that your armed and willing to use it to protect your family! I guarantee you they will respond faster.

    I long ago learned my lesson on these calls. Watching game, hear someone yelling for help. Look and it's house across street. New neighbors, never met them. Call 911, 10K questions to which all answers were "I have no idea". While getting grilled I see male half come out and get in car. Told them this,said my guess domestic. About an hour later LEO shows. I forgot all about it, people moved. Like 6 months later I get subpoena to court for this. I take day off work and go. I see this couple there. Hours later they call her case. She jumps up and runs out of court room. After they call her name a few times judge tosses it since "she is not there". They thank me for coming and tell me I can go. If I said what I wanted to say I would have been in jail. Last time I ever call 911 and tell them who I am. Keep a couple blank cells for this now. Will call give info and hang up.
