Informative little Book

Stevens takes you through every state giving example after example of what happens (???doesn't happen???) when you dial 911. I especially appreciate what he wrote as, several years ago, I called 911 with three men pounding on the side of my house yelling, cussing, and threatening and it took the LEA one hour and forty-five minutes to respond. You need to know this stuff so you can make an informed decision about what you are going to do.

A must read!!!

This is a must read for anyone who is undecided as to the necessity of having a gun for self defense. The stories are actually true. One of the stories happened in my hometown and I remember it well.

Unpleasant Realities

This book is mandatory reading for anyone who thinks that nobody should be allowed to own or carry a firearm for self-defense because "the police will protect you". As the author so ably demonstrates, 911 is a communications system of variable efficacy. It's not a teleportation device which desposits the police at your location. As some of the examples show, even when the police do respond, they don't always do anything meaningful, either through no fault of their own, negligence or malice. If you know somebody who thinks that the police have a duty to protect them because it says "To Serve and Protect" on the doors of the police cars, do them a favor and buy them a copy of this book. It could save their life. Even if they choose to abdicate their fundamental human right of self-defense, at least they will have done so with their eyes open.

Should be read by all Americans

In the preface of "Dial 911 and Die", Richard Stevens states that the most shocking thing he learned in law school was that "the government owes no duty to protect individual citizens from criminal attack."On the other hand, the laws of many states and cities make it nearly impossible to use firearms for self-protection. It is a Catch-22--government will not protect you, yet they make legal mincemeat of your best means of protecting yourself."Dial 911 and Die" describes many types of cases in which governmental employees were negligent, incompetent, or, in some cases, criminal in their actions: paramedics who refused to respond to a heart attack victim; a parole board which illegally released a violent career criminal who later committed additional crimes; dozens of women who obtained restraining orders against abusive spouses/boyfriends who later murdered them.In each case, the courts ruled that the offending department or jurisdiction could not be sued.Stevens' book covers the laws of every state in the union. However, it is not a dry legal treatise. Each chapter describes one or more electrifying cases in which citizens were denied the right to sue for damages because of geovernmental immunity from lawsuits. The writing is clear and the narrative similar to a true crime book or a novel.This book will outrage you. But it should be in the library of every American who is concerned about our eroding individual rights.

A Book to Save Your Life!

Although not intended to put down the 911 emergency system, or the nation's police forces, this book illustrates how dependence on those institutions can cost your life if they fail to respond to your emergency, especially if you're the victim of an attack. Because there is no legal requirement for the police to respond to your pleas for help, the bottom line is you are sometimes totally on your own. After reading this book, and discussing the truth of its message with our local police force, I bought a .38 Smith and Wesson and took lessons in using it to protect myself. My country, however is bent on forbiding me to own my own protection, while not assuring me of its help. This is a catch 22 that all citizens should learn about. The message will inspire you to take steps to protect yourself, for you are always the first on the scene of a crime against you. I regard this book as invaluable for teaching me a lesson of self reliance I would have blissfully ignored otherwise, possibly fatally.
