Stolen From Another Forum

But I thought you guys would enjoy...

HOW TO CALL THE POLICE:


George Phillips of Meridian, Mississippi was going up to bed when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go
turn off the light but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.
He phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?" and he said
"no". Then they said that all patrols were busy, and that he should simply lock his door and an officer would be along when available.
George said, "Okay," hung up, counted to 30, and phoned the police
again. "Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people in
my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I've just
shot them all." Then he hung up. Within five minutes three police cars, an Armed Response unit, and an
ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence and caught the burglars red-handed. One of the Policemen said to George: "I thought you said that you shot them!" George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"

That happened a couple years ago, but it is very true. It was big news all over the state.

Four or five years ago, a coworker's house was broken into. Among other things, a handgun was stolen. The police sent out a crime scene unit to take pictures and dust for prints. The coworker was told, by the investigating officer, that the stolen handgun was the only reason for the investigation. If no firearms had been involved, the 'investigation' would most likely have been handled entirely over the phone, and not gone any farther than writing a report that the victim could give to his insurance company.

Unfortunately this happens quite often.
When I was about 18 I was working as night manager at a service station, I came home early from work and found a guy in the house, I chased him into the back yard and then called 911. The operator said "since the suspect is no longer in the house we don't need to respond" they didn't have anyone available.
I responded that I had passed a cop car not 3 blocks from my house on the way home, I heard some typing on a keyboard and then the operator said "that officer is on traffic duty and can't respond to a burglery" so I said" My back yard is surrounded by a 6 foot fence and I haven't heard the gate open so since you're too busy to check this out I'll grab my gun and take care of it myself...(I didn't actually own a gun at that time) not 5 minutes later that "traffic cop" was in my driveway with his gun drawn. The burgler was gone but there was no way of knowing that until it was checked out.
I came away with 2 understandings, 1 the police in this area seem to think writing traffic tickets is far more important than catching burglers and 2, even if they respond, they can't get there before something happens. Now I own guns and practice with em.
