3 calls to 911 and a 20-minute wait

Chicago Multiple 911 Calls

A Chicago couple is left to defend themselves inside their home because NO ONE SHOWED UP after calling 911. The husband shot a rooftop intruder during a prolonged 20-minute delay in police response.

What happens after 3 calls to 911 and a 20-minute wait?

Unfortunately, you’re on your own. Imagine how long that wait feels like.

This is the second time, in less than a week, someone has used a firearm in self-defense just on the north side of town. The trend continues, and it’s not a good one. CWB Chicago does a great job of covering the stories, and they even said:

“Candidly, there were so many armed robberies in our primary coverage area overnight, we simply cannot reliably tell you how many occurred. Conservatively, we can say 20 armed robberies occurred. We believe the number may ultimately be more than 25.”

That was only for Saturday night.

I stayed on the north side over the weekend, and it’s not the area it used to be. Places people used to walk to, they Uber now because it’s safer.

Honestly, from what I can see, the police have had their hands full. A couple of weekends back, they had to stand by and wait as a mob destroyed things because they didn’t have enough officers to move in. I got lots of great videos, though.

It gives me extra topics to cover, but it bites for my social life.
