A recent article on Cracked.com gives 5 examples of terrible incompetence on the part of 911 operators and police. These include a case where the 911 operator takes time to scold the caller about using profanity rather than sending help, and where the police officer on the way to save a woman from a knife weilding, home invading ex-boyfriend is diverted to a traffic stop instead. Sadly, cases of 911 failing to save a citizen due to incompetence, not answering the phone, etc. are not uncommon – and the police are not legally liable for that failure. That is why I advocate gun ownership, as armed citizens can save their own lives from home invaders, robbers, stalkers, racist attackers, and rapists.
