Hidden Video: CopsNationwide Say: “You’re On Your Own” By: Mac Slavo The investigative journalists at Project Veritas are at it again, and this time they visited local police departments across the nation and asked law enforcement officials what residents should do if they are threatened by a break-in, armed robbery or other violent crime. Most of the localities visited, like New York and NewJersey, have restrictive gun laws, so you can imagine that the answers were…quite creative (and not very encouraging). What happens between the time I call 9-1-1 and the time youget there? Law Enforcement Officer – Bronxville, NY: “It takes a coupleminutes to get there.” Project Veritas: “OK, in the two minutes, though, what do ido?” LEO: “In the two minutes what do you do?” PV: “Yeah: (awkward pause) LEO: “That’s a good question.” PV: “Basically, in just that two minutes I’m on my own?” LEO: “Yeah.” LEO: “Look on the internet about how to get a gun permit.” PV: “How long does that take to get?” LEO: “In New York? About a year.” Youtube Video concerning this info http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=1AQ1WBb81BE Here are some other suggested self defense techniques youcan apply in the event your life is threatened and police are minutes away: “It’s 2013. It’s the United Stated of America. You lock yourdoors and hope nothing happens.” “That’s why we have call boxes. That’s why we have safezones. That’s why we have the whistles.” “Lock yourself in a room and call us.” “Just make noise. I would just make noise. It generallyscares people off.” “I would scream. Let somebody know I was there.” “Lock yourself in a bedroom. Start yelling and screaming, somaybe the guy breaking hears that somebody’s home and runs out the door.” “If you pick up a bat and start hitting somebody if he comesin your home. You’re allowed to do that.” “If you just take your cell phone out, put it up to yourear, and call 9-1-1, a lot of times that makes people think twice before theydo something.” “You could leave the home if you can get to an exit. Youknow, you could leave the home.” “Put some kind of two-by-four stick or something in thewindow so you can jam it up.” “In case of emergency, I’m gonna do what I have to do. Goget some bleach. Go get some ammonia.” … “[you're on your own] unless you have a dog” “If a man enters your home, all bets are off.” “You’re just asking questions that I can’t answer for you.” According to a recent city-by-city response time report atAmerican Police Beat, it takes police in major metropolitan areas about 10minutes to respond to an emergency 9-1-1 call. And in some areas, policeresponse times are so slow that neighbors have been forced to organizethemselves into patrols. If you live in a state where it’s still legal to carry apersonal self defense firearm, you can feel comfortable being “on your own.” If Not, you may want to head down to your local hardware store and pick up a two-by-four, some bleach, and a whistle.
