    Do you think they're taking "officer safety" to a bit of an extreme...?!?

    They're civil servants. Why would you expect anything more of them?

    Maybe they've been taking lessons from the Jefferson County CO. Sheriffs on the importance of establishing a safe perimeter when a shooting occurs?

    it's by no means the first time that they've done this, and they've left people to bleed to death inside the perimeter because they're frightened they might get shot at, and that injured officers will sue the Department.

    The old US of A may not be perfect.

    But let me suggest you run outside right now, get down on your hands and knees and kiss the ground!

    If they trained Bobbies to carry side arms, they wouldn't be so preoccupied with officer safety.

    Forty minutes is way too long, especially given that the first hour is critical in shock trauma. How can a people expect law enforcement to provide protection when this is the kind of response they witness?

    It's really sad when you live in a place where you can get a pizza delivered faster than an ambulance or police car can get there. Even sadder when the pizza guy is more heavily armed.

    When are the people over there going to wake up and do something about these ridiculous gun laws? (although I guess I could ask the same question of the people inhabiting certain parts of the US :rolleyes: )
