“Unless you’re unlucky and a police officer happens to be there at the start, you can’t go any faster. Of course, having a co-pilot on scene doesn’t mean the event is over. That’s me. That’s the number we’re talking about, it’s about three minutes from the 9-1-1 call to the co-pilot on the scene, go find the attackers and stop the killing, so it’s going to take more time than that. It could take,” Blair said.

Each situation is not the same, but Blair said it would be better to train the police.
“You have to train them all the time. It doesn’t make you a tactical genius that you can handle, so you don’t develop that practice and that skill in your daily job, so you have to train to develop that skill. If you need , you have that skill in place,” Blair said.
