Cagle Post – Political Cartoons & Commentary – » Newtown A Microcosm Of Government Failure « Ye Olde Soapbox.

It has become axiomatic that when seconds count, the police are only minutes away. In the case of the first responders to the horrific school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, it was 20 minutes, to be exact.

That’s the picture that is emerging from the 911 calls from that terrible day. Twenty minutes. I have tried in vain to imagine my 7-year-old grandson, his defenseless classmates and their equally defenseless teacher being shot to death one by one while waiting 20 minutes for police to arrive. It is a scenario too terrible to conjure in my mind. To imagine local law enforcement personnel taking a full one-third of an hour to respond to such a monstrous event is infuriating. And yet, there it is. Those who wish to protect themselves and their loved ones in almost any situation

should not depend on government. How many times have we seen it before?

Good commentary here, read it.

If you think the government will protect you, then you have made a grave error.

The police are always minutes away when seconds count.

Take the responsibility and defend yourself.
