This is absolutely wrong. What are the police thinking? There supposed to serve & protect. Not threaten harass & kill. This was senseless. If things of this nature continue to happen,the police will become to be feared as the enemy.

Well, in actuality, the whole idea of 'to serve and protect' is one big deception, and quite frankly it is a fraud.

Nice words and warm cuddly feeling don't begin to come close to the truth.

The police work for the government, and NOT us.
.
Protection you say? Not even!
.
See this:

In its landmark decision of DeShaney v. Winnebago County Department of Social Services the US Supreme court declared that the Constitution does not impose a duty on the state and local governments to protect the citizens from criminal harm. Attorney Richard Stevens, author of the book Dial 911 and Die, writes, "All in all you'd be much better off owning a gun and learning how to use it."


In Warren v. District of Columbia (1981), the D.C. Court of Appeals ruled, official police personnel and the government employing them are not generally liable to victims of criminal acts for failure to provide adequate police protection... a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any particular citizen.

.
And there you have it.
