Sunday Night Quick Hits: When seconds count, the police are only minutes away

Sure it was only a hoax, but the incident illustrates the old saw “when seconds count, police are only minutes away.”

Cops and MIT police swarmed the campus yesterday after an “electronic message” was sent to Cambridge police at 7:28 a.m. reporting that a man armed with a weapon was inside 77 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge Police Lt. John Boyle said.

But a campus-wide alert to students warning them to stay indoors was not sent out until 8:52 a.m. — more than an hour later, prompting online criticism yesterday for the delay.
