    As a retired Cop, I always told folks that we would respond as soon as we could get there, but you can't be everywhere at the same time. People have to be responsible for their own safety. The police will take over as soon as they possibly can...and generally do a good job of it.
    One point is that the police aren't immune from the dangers either. We had two good troopers shot last Friday while trying to arrest a guy on an assault charge. The guys 19 year old son came out of a bedroom with a rifle and shot the troopers in the back before they could draw their weapons. They leave five children fatherless. Their backup was hours away by airplane.
    I was not knocking the cops, just stating a fact of life. I am sorry about your brother officers. My BIL bought me a nice wood outdoor sign depicting a big pistol that reads "We don't dial 911". I hung it by the front door. During the recent rash of earthquakes, someone was pounding on the door after a particularly hard jolt, but stayed away from the door viewer, and would not respond when I said "who is it". I turned on the light above the sign, and whoever it was vanished. I guess he did not want to see the real version.

    FYI, to anyone calling law enforcement, police, etc. in an emergency. If at all possible, DO NOT USE YOUR CELL PHONE! The 911 operator cannot key your cell phone number to a physical address, and it will cause a significant delay in response time.

    No, still Texan, but a native of an even distance split between Houston & Dallas, who has lived in San Antonio for 4 yrs. they definitely weren't my Spurs!
