This is what is happening. You can make it stop. Just say "No" and don’t play the game. Try to ‘get’ what the Supreme Court of the United States has affirmed at least ten times. YOU MUST PROTECT YOURSELF!

There is no law, and no requirement that the police or fire departments respond to your call for help.  The Supreme court has been making that clear since 1980.  YOU are responsible for your own protection.

SUPREME COURT RULING: Police Have No Duty To Protect The General Public

2013 JANUARY 28

People who don’t understand taking responsibility for your own safety often ask me why I wouldn’t just call the police to stop a crime instead of drawing a gun. Well for one, a great police response time would be  a few minutes to a few hours – IF they come at all.  But most crimes take place in a matter of seconds. Two, police have no duty to protect me, or you.

Based on the headline of this article you might think this is an important new ruling, but it’s not. The court has kept this stance for over 30 years.

The Supreme Court has repeatedly ruled that police officers at all levels of the government have no duty to protect the citizens of this country. It is the job of police officers to investigate crimes and arrest criminals.  We are on our own for protection.

While we are quite sure most police officers will help someone in need when required – if they can – just remember the next time you feel you might need protection that police officers have no duty to provide that to you.
