No, you pay for law enforcement, not protection. It is every ones responsibility to protect themselves, their property and family.

Isn't a violation of a restraining order not breaking a law?

I guess all the police will be removing the "To serve and protect" decals from their cars in the morning.

But the law enforcers have always had the option of whether or not to enforce the law. If a law is on the books, then it should be enforced--equally for everyone. If it can't be enforced or enforced equally--or won't be--then the law should be voided and dropped from the books.

"No, you pay for law enforcement, not protection. It is every ones responsibility to protect themselves, their property and family."

- Good point...but what happens when 'gun control' unsurpes our ability to to do so? Guns are becoming like radar detectors...it is legal to buy them, own them and carry them...but illegal to use them...even in cases of self defense due to the courts humungous gray area of to what extent a person can do to protect themselves 'excessive use of force' baloney.

I agre and disagree. Everyone's first responsibility is to protect oneself. However, I believe when police are sworn it as officers, their oath requires them to PROTECT and serve. That's what is expected from the police when you call for assistance.

Without knowing the specifics of this particualr case, I don't know whether the police failed to uphold their oath, but in general that's what they're paid to do - protect and serve.
