The website (PublicRights.org) is no longer updated, but this page is still listed there. I thought it might be a handy reference.

It’s true.

The police cannot protect every citizen. and it’s not their job, anyway. The police’s job is retribution. That’s all.

They find the bad guy and get him before he hurts someone else.

We’re each responsible for our own safety.

Sorry.

Remember, when every second counts, the police are only minutes away.

And we have the obligation to protect ourselves and our families. Therefore any attempt by a fascist government to take away this right must be resisted.

But yet, the gun-grabbers argue that no one needs to own a firearm since the police will always be there to protect you. If you do shoot an intruder in your home, or fire in self-defense elsewhere, they want YOU prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, since you did no wait for the cops to respond. Idiots, all of them.

The reason every citizen concerned about protecting themselves and their family should be allowed to own and carry firearms. The police are no longer required to do their job (ok - so it is no longer their job - so what is? Writing tickets? OOoooo I feel so much safer now...).

What ever happend to that motto I still see on many police cars? You know - the one that says:

“To protect, and to serve”.

What does that mean? To protect their own butts, and to serve each other donuts?

Even in the face of this information, the leftist DhimmiRats and Libs are still clamoring to eliminate my Second Amendment rights. I don’t think so...

It’s in the tagline.

Lock and Load.

It is well established that the police do not owe a duty to protect any individual citizen. Their duty is to the community at large to maintain order and bring to justice those who break the law. That’s pretty much it when it comes to the duties of a law enforcement agency.

So basically, the police won't protect us, but then the liberals ban guns and deny law-abiding citizens (including college students!) the right to defend themselves?

No wonder there are shootings on college campuses.

Katrina made that clear.

LEOS primary duty is now revenue generation, bad backs, disability, early retirement, second careers.

Police and district attorneys have no legal duty to protect; they cannot be held liable for failing to protect. This is called The Public Duty Doctrine.

This doctrine cannot be found in any textbook, either in high schools or college classes. When our children reach adulthood, they haven’t a clue about this.

Therefore, here is the problem: Police and district attorneys have no legal duty to disclose that they have no legal duty to protect.

The U.S. Supreme Court has written: “Citizenship is membership in a political society, and implies a duty of allegiance on the part of the member and a duty of protection on the part of the society. These are reciprocal obligations, one being a compensation for the other.” Luria v, U.S., 231 U.S. 9, 22. (1913)

No duty to protect means there is no corresponding obligation of allegience. No allegiance to their million+ laws, statutes and regulations.

A State is a body politic — political society. A body politic is the citizens.

Connect the dots:
There is no duty to protect > there is no obligation of allegiance > there are no citizens > there is no body politic — no political society > there is no State.

Factually what is a State? What is the State of Arizona? The State of Arizona is an act of congress — words on paper. A legal fiction. Prior to February 14, 1912, the State of Arizona didn’t exist.

What is government? Men and women providing services by compulsion/violence.

Politicians don’t represent people. Pay the tax or go to jail isn’t representation. It’s ownership, or at least enslavement.
