Woman Shoots Home Invader After Waiting An Hour For Police

posted on September 17, 2015

This armed citizen story is a perfect wake-up call for the “just wait for the police” contingent. A female homeowner in Dayton, Ohio, called 911 and told the dispatcher that she heard someone trying to break into her house. She was told to wait for an officer to arrive, so she hunkered down—for over an hour.

As Breitbart reports, eventually the suspect did allegedly gain entrance to her home, and she used her firearm to fatally wound him. She called 911 a second time, and shortly afterwards officers did arrive at her house. Police had apparently treated the first call as relatively low priority—proving the point that when it comes to life and death, the only person you can count on for protection is yourself.
