And this from Slate: Did the Police Fail to See the Signs in Cleveland?
Police officials are examining the response to a 911 call Sunday night that left a city man struggling with an intruder at his building without any officers arriving.
Dan Dodson said it was 20 or 30 minutes before two officers eventually arrived in response to his wife’s calls to police telephone numbers.
“We’re looking into it to determine if the proper protocols were followed,” Lt. Steve Varn said yesterday evening.
The police have a difficult job. I wouldn't want to live in a community without an honest competent police force.
But make no mistake, the police cannot protect you, they cannot save you, they will not rescue you.
They will write a report after it's all over.
Be prepared to take care of yourself.
