13 Minutes is a Long Time

Assuming you got to make the 911 call before violence erupted. Study showcases KPD's strengths, weaknesses for future performance � Knoxville News Sentinel
KPD officers clocked the longest average response time - 13 minutes and 13 seconds. But police believe that's more a sign of a technological gap than of foot-dragging.
Now that is an average of all calls, but if you are calling 911, something is wrong.

So how are you going to entertain your uninvited guest until the cops arrive? Good thing Tennessee has concealed carry.

Calling 911 is a fine thing, but when seconds count, police are minutes away. In some places, many minutes.
