I need to get some 00buck for the benelli been keeping slugs in it right now, but that's what I always practice shooting too.
Your .22? I wouldn't even consider it for a second in HD situation.

I heard the MD State Police had their vehicles engines upgraded. It was embarrassing that the coroners station wagons kept beating them to the scene

MD State Police wouldn't follow me into my shopping center / store when I had an alarm call go off at 2am. I stopped by the station 3 blocks away and asked on of the troopers if he would follow me they said no and called the city police. out of their jurisdiction yet they pull people over in this shopping center daily. That really bugged me. Had to wait 15min for city to show up.

ahhhhh ha. I gotcha. I mean 25 headshots in a high stress situation in low lighting conditions with a moving target is rather hard...plus a .22 doesn't have much stopping power.

Your new gun looks sexy tho.

As long as they got home safe at night, right?

When I say "no duty to respond or protect", this is a good example.
What if the robber was killing or raping someone?
They couldn't care less

Even with a mutual aid agreement in place, jurisdicational issues play a factor. If they have not been requested by local police to assist, then they technically may not have jurisdiction, or authority, to take enforcement. If that is the case and they respond anyways and shoot the robber or rapist, they can be held civilly liable without indemnification by the State. You can thank the ambulance chaser attorneys for that one.

Sorry to say, but if me responding to an incident results in me getting sued and losing all my money and me and my family being in massive debt for the next 30 years, having to sell my home and all my property, or worse- have my house foreclosed and file for bankruptcy, I'm going to protect myself and act within my authorized powers that keep me indemnified and go no further. If that results in a person being injured or worse, oh well. We live in a litigation-happy society.

Another issue may be a result of poor relations between agencies or politics involved, which is fairly common. That is a different issue altogether.

REEDO thanks for the post, you actually solidified my point extremely well!

No duty to protect, and your life, financial status and career fall above your oath and anyone else. Not saying I necessarily agree or disagree, but there it is... In plain site right from a cops mouth (fingers)

To those that choose not to arm and protect yourselves, rather put all your faith in 911 and police.
Keep in mind, when your life in on the line, these thoughts are passing through your heroes mind

Such is why I've told people to go buy a gun if they are concerned about home security issues. Some administrators don't like me saying it, but I have yet to find a more reliable solution.

"oath" is not a static thing. When I took my oath, it was basically serve the city, be ethical and fair, and support the constitution.

Yup. Ive gotten a feel from you over time and I know you're a good guy.
It is what it is, but people should be aware of the reality and not put their faith, family and lives all in one bucket. Including a gun!
