    Where were the police when they were needed? Once again, we need to accept that the police can’t be everywhere all of the time and that people need to be allowed to provide for their own safety and the safety of their families and business operations.

      (There is a reason they only had machetes – if you try really hard, you might be able to connect the dots).
