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?
Actually, I’ve been advocating that all along. We could do away with most of our police forces if people would just take their personal safety a LOT more seriously.
