What kind of "bad" thing are you talking about? It's impossible for us to agree, disagree or offer suggestions without knowing what kind of situation we are discussing.

All of them are the same 20 to 45 minute to respond, arrive just in time to do the paperwork. If it is something serous 8 or more arrive at one time and surround a lone person guilty or not. The recent school shooting they had to wait until the swat team arrived from another area, 20 minutes past before they got there. Explain to me what that is called they say training, I say something else.

Thanks for posting on Topix and not helping us at all. It's not so clear as to whether you are talking about a specific bad event that about to occur or if you're just saying this because the police aren't attentive enough and no good can come from it. Either way, we would appreciate you to never give up at alerting the proper authorities when it comes to someone's safety. I think we all would like to remain as un-paranoid as possible.

You only have to call once. If it's an emergency, dial 911. Morehead city police have the fastest response time in this part of the state. Don't believe it? Ask the chief. Or, ask the newspaper. Might take longer for the state boys, but they cover more area.

AND HOW MANY OF YOU COMPLAINERS ARE AGAINST GUN OWNERSHIP ?

Remember the police show up after the fact, in most situations. When seconds count, the police will be there in minutes.

I'm not sure what gun ownership has to do with the police responding. I am wondering what you are asking the police for, and if it is a criminal or civil matter. Some issues require a lawyer and the court system, not a phone call to the police. What are you calling the police for? What are they "refusing" to do for you?

Example man and wife at home 2 A.M. in the morning two men try to break the door down and get into the house. Husband gets up to defend himself and wife with only a pipe wrench.

He has no idea if they are armed with knife, gun, or what ever. Police were called at the start, 45 minutes they show up, husband and wife could be dead, wife could be raped or other.

The police jumped on the husband because he had pipe wrench, they said it was not right for him to meet violence with violence.

The truth of the matter, the police were not there to protect this family, they came after to do the paper work. Nothing was done, no one was apprehended, why because they police did not come when needed.

The wife was strictly against having a gun for self protection, she says nothing about it now.
This is true, it happened to me and my wife in Lexington Kentucky. It was not the only time, many people with the same experience said police did not come until almost an hour even over a hour.

You have to protect yourself from criminals willing to use lethal force. Sad to say, violence is the only thing that will stop violence. It is what the Bible says: if they break in at night especially, they have taken their own life into their own hands. If a man comes in to kill another for no reason, they should be willing to forfeit their own life.

That is the reason laws in Kentucky give you the right to Stop with lethal force any person breaking into your house while you are there, it gives the right to stop lethal force any person trying to hijack you in your car, it gives you the right to stop with lethal force anyone trying to commit arson on your house or barn. Trying to take your life with a weapon, trying to rape are also covered in the laws of lethal force.

The law does not give you the right to kill per-say, but if they die under any of those scenarios they have legally forfeited their own life if they die.
Never say I killed them, say you tried to stop or prevent them and was in fear of your or someone else's life. I am not a lawyer it would be good to talk to one if you intend to carry a gun concealed, other wise or have one in the car / home.

The're much information on the internet, Google concealed carry, look at the state police and state websites. I hope that no one has to shoot someone else to protect themselves, family or others. But with the world we live in I want to be prepared.

This isn't a post about second amendment rights. The original poster wanted to know why the police weren't responding. I was curious as to what the original poster was asking the police for.

I understand gun ownership. That isn't the question.

Indeed protection of self will always involve second amendment rights, the police will not protect you that means you must protect yourself in a life threatening situation or you have chose to be maimed, be raped or die. That is just the facts of the matter most people don't realize this until it happens to them. They say, no that will not happen to me and live with rose colored glasses on.

Well even in Morehead people have been raped and killed, people have died in some pretty horrendous ways. The police were not there to protect them, really they can not be in some cases, in others a long time delay after the 911 call allows time for allot more to happen. Even in the case of the recent school shooting, police were on site, they just had to wait 20 minutes for the swat team to arrive? My question is why, are they not paid to put themselves into harms way, police of the past did so, what happened.

If you want to make a new post about gun ownership, go for it. I wanted to know what the original poster is calling the police for.

The swat team doesn't live in a cave under the police department. I'm sure those men (and women?) were called out of their homes and had to rush in, grab gear, and then head to the school.

I can answer anyway I want, that is what Topix is for, discussion. Just because you don't want to talk about the true facts of the matter at had or see the connection of the matter don't mean others are wearing rose colored glasses like you, or are hiding their heads in the sand. So Blah !!!

I never stated my opinions on gun laws or gun ownership. For all you know, I completely agree with you on that matter. Still, I want to know what the original poster needs from the police that they either can't or won't do for him/her.

That's it. Simple question.

The police can't be everywhere handling crises all the time. And the person who started this said "so heads up" meaning they're giving us a heads up. Heads up on what? Why get on here and start something and not finish. Gosh I hate when people do this. And Im sure every dumbass around here knows how to call 911 if they have to. Now, Im paranoid because someone I dont know is saying something bad is going to happen, and nobody else has a clue what they're talking about. Just kidding, folks. Why worry about something you can't control. Its gonna happen either way, sorry.
