I imagine some SJW heads were exploding over that one. Tucson Voters Vote Down ‘Sanctuary City’ Proposal.
On Tuesday, [Proposition 205] was defeated by just over 71 percent of Tucson voters. It was opposed during the campaign by virtually all of the city’s authority figures, including the Pima County Sheriff, the city council, and Mayor Jonathan Rothschild (D-Ariz.).
71 percent is pretty resounding “no” vote. Do you think the SJWs will accept it? Neither do I.
Without a firearm that is. Tucson homeowner fatally shoots 2 men during attempted break-in, police say.
Upon further investigation, detectives learned the homeowner was asleep inside the home when she was woken up from noise coming from the back of the residence, Magos said. She then went to investigate and found two men trying to force their way into her home.
“She confronted them, she armed herself with a firearm and shots were fired and that info was relayed to us by 911,” Magos said.
One was dead at the scene; the other died at a local hospital.
The investigation is ongoing. Self-defense is a human-right.
These numbers assume (in the priority 1 cases) that you can call for help BEFORE bad things happen. It is not always the case that you can. What’s expected? Tucson Police response times – KGUN9.com
Is Tuscon an average city? I have no way of knowing.
The 9-1-1 calls of crimes in progress — life threatening — are put at the top of the priority list. About 2,300 calls expected this year — more than double the amount from 2012.
City of Tucson data shows an average response time of five minutes reached 72 percent of the time.
5 minutes – if your life is in danger – can seem like a long time. But as these things go, 5 minutes would be pretty good. If they could meet that all the time, which they can’t.
Unfortunately, this story doesn’t cover things like mean, median, or standard deviation. Or even what the maximum-wait-time was for a priority 1 call. Those would be interesting stats.
The priority 2 goal is 10 minutes; they reach it 60% of the time. (Some danger is present.) Low priority calls (you have been burglarized, your car WAS stolen, etc.) has a goal of 2 hours; they meet that 66% of the time.
While it may be annoying, your car is going to be just as stolen an hour later. But the priority 3 & 4 calls are getting all the complaints.
Calling 911 is a fine thing to do. They can send all kinds of help your way depending on your emergency. In the case of a priority 1 call, if you can call before bad things happen, 5 minutes can still be a very long time to wait. You might want to consider having a plan for while you wait, or what you might do in the event you can’t call 911.
