The New York City truck attack and the Michigan school shooting were chosen for comparison. The first event took place in 2017 in Manhattan when a terrorist ran over twelve people on a rented truck. The police officer who was on another call noticed the terrorist and urgently shot him.
The proactive response for such cases is almost impossible to be performed. As reactive measures, the government reconsidered the renting opportunities for the representatives of the Islamic State. The second case is the school shooting which involved four deaths and seven wounded victims. The killer immediately surrendered to the police.
The police response time, in this case, was rapid thanks to the renewed policies related to the earlier school shooting and attacks. Therefore, the truck attack is indirectly connected with this case considering the practice response to the attacks.
In such cases, the responsiveness plan includes developing communicational opportunities and enhancing police offices’ staff opportunities. People contacted the police quickly, and the criminal was arrested immediately.
