    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.
