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.

How many times and how many ways can this be stated. In a free nation you have personal responsibility. The government is not the answer to all your problems.
The job of the police is to introduce the ethically challenged to the Criminal Justice System. The outcome of that introduction is not within their control. The responsibility for your individual safety, begins and ends with you. Second Amendment anyone?

With all these court cases establishing the FACT that the individual is on his or her own despite an expensive police force, it only seems logical that the 2nd Amendment should be greatly EXPANDED to enumerate the right to self-protection!

Police have no legal duty to respond and prevent crime or protect the victim

The Police have, what is known as, indemnification.
