I bet it took them an hour to get there. Once someone was breaking into my house and I had a small child. The police dept is 5 minutes from my house and it took them 1.5hr to get there. Luckily they weren't able to get all the way in and left. Stupid cops are worthless, all they do is give tickets for people going 5mph over speed limit or if your tag is 1 day past due. They don't protect anyone that really needs help!!!

The police have no legal obligation to protect individuals.

Their only obligation is to enforce the law.

This usually occurs when they are investigating your murder.

Only you can protect yourself.

And a gun allows the most helpless of us to survive encounters with violent predators.

Angela, it is your responsibility to protect yourself.

That is not the polices job.

My family is fully prepared to protect themselves if need be, however, the police are obligated to "Protect and Serve". It is not only their job to enforce the law but also protect the citizens of the communities that they patrol. I know several, and people don't understand that they like any other business' are also suffering from this economic meltdown and are understaffed.
