10. Homeowner shoots criminal


Here is audio of a homeowner shooting a man who broke into her house.

What that audio emphasizes is just how long it took the police to

respond. She would probably have been long dead with rigor mortis

setting in before the officers arrived had it not been for her shotgun.

Again, no one is blaming the police when these things happen: the

police do the best they can, but sometimes they are simply no where

near you. When I was a deputy in Texas, it sometimes could take 15

minutes or more to make it to a call due to the sheer size of the area

we had to patrol.
