Ohio county judge to newly un-policed citizens: “Be vigilant and arm yourselves”. This particular county has run out of money and fired most of its policemen, leaving just one on duty per shift to cover 720 square miles. We had pretty much that same situation when I lived in Maine – response time for the staties was about 3 1/2 hours. I kept a shotgun in the house and didn’t worry.
And I didn’t have to fear being tasered by bullies in blue.
