Jerusalem police afraid of terrorists?

This comes from a lengthier article about the investigation into Thursday night's terror attack at Merkaz HaRav yeshiva in Jerusalem (Hat Tip: Danny in Tokyo).
Jerusalem Police have launched a probe into the police response to the shooting attack in the yeshiva.

Eyewitnesses have said that it took between 15-20 minutes for police to actually enter the building. Ultimately, the first two police officers to arrive did not enter the yeshiva, despite hearing the gunshots.

Instead, one apparently ran down the street to prevent a bus that was traveling to the building from approaching, and a second said that he stood outside to prevent civilians from entering.

In the end, it was an off-duty IDF officer, Capt. David Shapira, who ran past police officers standing outside and entered the building to neutralize the terrorist.

No conclusions have been reached yet in the police inquiry.
Maybe they were afraid that they would be investigated for opening fire if they actually killed the terrorist?

Yet the police are very efficient at keeping Jews from going to al Mukaber to demolish the terrorist family's tent and home. There's nothing they won't do to protect Hamas from the wrath of the Jews. But to protect yeshiva boys from terrorists? That's one thing they apparently can't do right.

Looks like Ehud Olmert has succeeded in tying not only the hands of the IDF but also the police in the war on terror.
