My takeaway from this event is that 911 should be the first call made when witnessing an event like this. At least in San Diego North County, when you call the non-emergency line, the recording tells you to call 911 to report a crime in progress.I also heard background of people calling 911 early in the fight. I hope that’s not how the park learned of the incident.
While horrific, this could actually have been much worse. Seconds can save lives. The security theater at DL does not reliably keep anyone from bringing a knife into the park. In that case, seconds could matter.
I’m sure DL would rather handle it in house, but I am of the opinion that 911 should be the first call to report a crime in progress.
