Right, up until "What have the police done to prevent the travesty?" we keep hearing from various segments of society. So, if a man brandishes a weapon outside of your business and you call the police, what you are saying is that you do not want them to gain control of the situation to assess what the problem may or may not be? You want them to arrive with teddy bears and blankets with warm milk so everyone can have a nap and get along?
If it works, why not teddy bears, blankets and warm milk?
