Doug Wyliie, PoliceOne editor in chief, lays it all out with clarity. Doug writes, “The Northern Illinois shooting and Virginia Tech tragedy before it demonstrated that the law enforcement community who defend against madmen and malcontents must rapidly engage the subject in order to save lives.”
Crime Prevention Coordinator Jim Lanzi tells readers, “Time—you’ve got to shorten that time up that the person can have a gun and start shooting and a mass notification system certainly mitigates issues after the shooting, but it’s not going to stop the shooting.”
Street Survival Seminar instructor Dave Smith tells Doug’s readers, “People of action, such as you and I, will always seek what we can do to stop these terrible trajedies. Others will beg to create a world that will never be—a paradise of sheep and wolves lying side by side in loving peace. They will someday learn that the shepherd must not be denied the staff to fight the wolf; for the spirit of the wolf will never change and, while some may wonder why the wolf eats the lamb, you the shepherd must stand ever vigilant between the two.”
