This is not a knock on police officers, but a reinforcement for the need for home defense. http://bearingarms.com/when-seconds-count-police-may-be-over-an-hour-away/ Last week, a story emerged from Dayton, Ohio where dispatchers confirmed a woman was forced to call into dispatch two times over a span of over sixty minutes. The first call came in approximately 3:00 am on the morning of September 10, 2015 when she was awakened by a stranger banging at her door. The call transcript reads: Caller: Someone is trying to break into my house! Dispatcher: Can you see someone or hear someone, what’s going on? Caller: Someone is banging on the door. While the emergency dispatcher does ask additional questions, they eventually end the call with the woman, saying “Keep an eye out for the officer and call us back if you hear anything else.” Unbelievably, more than an hour passed in which time the intruder continued to relentlessly attempt to break into the woman’s home. When she ultimately discovered 22-year-old DeBrandon Dickerson, of Detroit, actively trying to get inside an upstairs window of her home, she was forced to take matters into her own hands and shot the would-be assailant. The second call transcript reads: Caller: Someone broke into my home, I shot one! Dispatcher: Someone broke into your house and you shot them? Caller: Yes. This time, the dispatcher remained on the line until help arrived. A third emergency call came into dispatch regarding the break in, this time from a relative of Dickerson who found him with a gunshot would to his chest. Dayton Police say at the time of the shooting, there were seven officers and one sergeant on duty, however all were working other calls.
