A Sense of Proportion

"If you're in your apartment, and some emotionally disturbed person is banging on your door, screaming, 'I am going to come through this door and kill you,' do you want us to respond with one police officer, which is proportional, or with all the resources at our command? There is no such thing as a proportional response to terrorism."
