A Lot of Bad Things Can Happen in 15 Minutes

Grand Jury Says Oakland Needs More Officers - cbs5.com

Calling 911 is a wonderful thing, but if you are going to be on your own for 15 minutes, you better have another plan in place.
the city's current average response time to 911 calls is 15 minutes, which is nearly four times higher than the four-minute response time called for by national standards.
Even 4 minutes is a long time to wait, but 15 minutes could be like waiting for the rest of life.
