Amen to that, brother. This could have been bad. Real bad! My department is going to be issuing assault rifles (AR15/M4) for all the patrol cars. It’s a step in the right direction for sure, but as I always say, “When seconds count, we’re only minutes away!”

As much as dirtbags like this guy keep me employed, truth be told very rarely are we on scene in time to make any kind of difference. By the time a victim calls 911, dispatch gets us rolling, and we arrive on scene, the bad guy is usually gone and we’re left cleaning up the mess and filling out paperwork. Sad to say, but it’s a fact. That is why I am so adamant about the community getting some form of self defense training (I bet you can guess which one I recommend Wink) I would love just once to respond to a call that required myself and an ambulance NOT because someone was attacked, but because the “victim” flipped the switch, went all SDTS on their ass, and the bus ride to the emergency room is for the perp. Ah… dare to dream!

P.S. [Damian Ross], glad you and your family are safe, my friend. I know this was “just down the road” from you.
