The Binghamton murders last weekend illustrate the folly of relying on the government to protect you. The police arrived quickly, but took no action until well after the incident was over:
Police said they arrived within two minutes. . .
Police heard no gunfire after they arrived but waited for about an hour before entering the building to make sure it was safe for officers. They then spent two hours searching the building.
While the victims waited for rescue and medical treatment, the police waited outside until they were sure it was safe for themselves. How many people died because of the delay?
