Un-Freakin’-Believable. She called 911 when her daughter was attacked; Detroit police arrived 4 days later.
On average, Detroit cops get to a 911 call in 12 minutes. That was 30 minutes (on average) just a few years ago. But aside from the fact that bad things can happen in 12 minutes, you should remember that sometimes people are going to wait longer. In this case, it was much longer.
She called 911 when her daughter’s boyfriend was beating the daughter. No one showed up that day. She called multiple times, talked to dispatchers, talked to supervisors. No one showed up. The attacker came back again. The original call was made on Saturday.
Detroit police didn’t arrive at the west side home until the following Wednesday afternoon, a full four days and 34 minutes after the first call to 911.
Assistant Chief James White made no excuses when he spoke with WXYZ television station about the delay last week.
They have offered the girl who was attacked, an apology. But this kind of thing can happen to anyone. Mistakes were made, but humans make mistakes. You should not assume that 911 is going to come to your aid every time.
You could also file this under don’t bring a knife to a gunfight. Valdosta man shot, dies after trying to enter Madison County residence.
So the guy who got shot was sending threatening text messages to a woman at the house. They don’t say, but it sounds like she was staying with friends or family to get away from this asshole, and he objected. What he didn’t take into account is that Floridians are almost as heavily armed as Texans.
The homeowner was armed, when the asshole forced his way in through he back door.
The homeowner tried to push Martin back out the door when Martin reportedly raised a large kitchen-style knife in a stabbing motion, the news release said.
The homeowner fired one round from a handgun that struck Martin in the chest, ending the attack, the sheriff said.
Sheriff’s deputies found him a short distance from the back door, and he was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Self-defense, and defense of family, is a human-right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
If you think “the system” is going to save you, you are mistaken. It is a mistake that could cost you a lot. Queens woman killed by ex in murder-suicide contacted NYPD twice in days before killings.
The NYPD twice bungled the complaints of a terrified Queens woman targeted by an obsessive ex-boyfriend in the days before he fatally shot her, police sources said Saturday.
“Bungled” is a strong word. Given that in 3 instances of vandalism, for which there were no witnesses and no evidence, it is hard to say exactly what the cops could have done. They could have given her a 9mm Glock, a box of ammo and some instructions, but it is New York City. They aren’t going to do that!
But a gun is the only thing that might have saved this woman. Relying on the system (the cops, the courts) is a losing bet. They can’t be with you every minute. They can only act if there is evidence. And they have no duty to protect you in any case.
Of course having a gun is no guarantee. There are no guarantees in this life save for death and next winter’s snow. Calling 911 was no guarantee of safety either, however.
Some people just can’t take a hint about being the EX-boyfriend. Man shoots daughter’s ex-boyfriend during alleged home invasion, police say.
Tulsa Police Sgt. Kurt Dodd said the father opened fire after the ex-boyfriend forced his way into the family’s home at about 4:35 p.m. in the 2300 block of South College Avenue. The man, whose named wasn’t released but is believed to be in his 20s, was struck twice in the chest.
He had been in a relationship with the daughter. She broke it off, and he was told to stay away. She didn’t live at her parents home but was visiting. They also had out-of-town guests who were avoiding Hurricane Florence.
According to police, the ex-boyfriend was told not to come back to the house but returned Wednesday afternoon and began beating on the front door. He then reportedly moved to the other side of the house and started beating on the back door before apparently breaking the latch to the garage and forcing his way inside the residence.
The father shot the man with a handgun during a confrontation inside the home.
The shooting is being investigated as self-defense.
Oklahoma has a “Stand Your Ground” law. (Actually I think it is called “Make My Day,” but I’m not 100% sure.) In any event, if you break into a home in Oklahoma, you should not be surprised about what happens.
The guy with the 2 gunshot wounds is in “emergent” condition. Which means serious or critical.

The Left is always going on about how kids and teens should be locked away from guns. Teen girl fires shot at armed intruder in Spanaway.
So this idiot ex-boyfriend kept causing problems and having 911 get called over “domestic incidents” involving a knife. When he got chased off one time, a mother and her teen daughter went across the street to check on their friend – the victim of his attacks.
The teen told returning deputies that after the first incident, she and her mom had gone across the street to check on the woman involved in the first incident. The girl returned home first to find the power had been shut off and grabbed a .22 pistol, deputies said.
Moments later, she heard a noise coming from the backyard and saw the man from before standing in her door.
He threatened her and actually managed to give her a light wound before she shot “at him.” (Range time people!) At which point he ran like a rabbit.
Police caught up with him walking away, and he faces numerous charges including domestic assault and first degree assault. All because of the “How dare you live without me!” attitude.
I suppose the Left will maintain that the world would be a better place if a teen-aged girl had to face an adult male attacker armed with a knife without a gun. Or maybe they will say that if they had not checked on their friend, they wouldn’t have been targeted. (A wild supposition, since he may have known they were friends.) Which is the city-dwellers’ long-standing attitude of “don’t get involved.” Kitty Genovese is unavailable for comment.
I’m sure he believes that he loves her. Man shot by girlfriend, woman claims self defense.
He had apparently assaulted her earlier in the day. He then shows up and forces his way into her apartment.
It is also believed that the man tried to force his way into the home, and in the process assaulted the woman as well as her 17-year-old son.
The woman said that she fired a single gunshot into the man’s torso in defense of her son and herself.

My prediction: this is another story that will be buried by the national media. EX-BOYFRIEND EXECUTES MAN IN LONG BRANCH RESTAURANT, COPS SAY
In a nutshell… The ex-boyfriend kills the new boyfriend and tries to kill his ex-girlfriend. He defied a court order of protection in doing so (in addition to other several other laws). So how is it that a piece of paper – even one signed by a judge – didn’t stop a bad guy in his tracks? (Sarcasm is sadly under-utilized in this politically-correct era.)
A gun in the hands of one of these victims may not have saved them. Being armed in your own defense is a strategy, not a guarantee, but relying on “the system” is also not a guarantee. A court order. The cops. Even being in a public place (usually a good strategy against crime). None of that worked.
The linguistic gymnastics?
A man living in this country illegally…
Because it is not politically correct to say illegal alien. But what happened to undocumented immigrant? Is that no longer PC either? (Cue the defenders of Sanctuary Cities in three, two, one….)
