    Mass shooters kill quickly, so only armed bystanders can save lives. Tom Gresham

    The Stopwatch of Death

    Law enforcement has adopted this concept, which may have first been popularized by Ron Borsch, manager and trainer at the SEALE Regional Training Academy in Bedford, Ohio, who created a new way of thinking of active shooter scenarios. He calls it the “Stopwatch of Death,” and this is what Chief Lanier is talking about. In an active shooter scenario, every minute of delay results in more casualties. Mr. Borsch created a way to compare one incident to another with a simple formula: Number of murder attempts divided by the number of minutes equals X. The X is the “Stopwatch of Death factor.”

    Is there an adjustment factor to include average response time of armed first responder (LAC / LEO)?
    RIGHTS don't exist without RESPONSIBILITY!
    If one is not willing to stand for his rights, he doesn't have any Rights.
    I will strive to stand for the rights of ANY person, even those folks with whom I disagree!
    As said by SVG--- "I am not anti-COP, I am PRO-Citizen" and I'll add, PRO-Constitution.
    If the above makes me a RADICAL or EXTREME--- So be it!

    Ron Borsch is no mathematical expert. So take his musings as such. He is likely the proud recipient of a high school diploma.

    Okay... are you envious? If not, I don't see your point.

    Which, come to think of it, isn't surprising... since you rarely have one.

    Knowing how cops react to a gun, in these situations, there seems to be a low probability of surviving first contact with them, even though it may be likely that their need to be there is no longer imperative.

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare
