This is why you arm yourself. If the cops want to wait a few days to send a meat wagon after a few JHP's drop an intruder so be it. I have been places not that far in the country where the cops take over an hour to respond. I am sure most of us have.
I have a sick feeling though that had the woman called up and said "I just shot someone" they would have found a cop to come out.
