    Help! Police!

    You need to be able to protect and defend YOURSELF. Then, after you have taken care of business, you can call us to come clean up the mess.
    That way it'll be the person who attacked you who is bleeding in your driveway, instead of you."

    not that any of us don't welcome this viewpoint, but you're kindof preaching to the choir on this forum lol

    I think he posts it more so that we can help spread the word. I know that I have plenty of friends and aquaintences that really do think that the police will always be there for them, and this could help show them the fallacy of that idea.

    Thanks for sharing it to us. :beer:

    I 100% agree with this, I much rather rely on myself to protect me or my family. Not saying I wouldn't request the help from the locals, but I much rather be prepared than to only rely on the police for my protection.

    "oldbanger", this is indeed a very good article, but I "scooped" you by 15 hours on this link...

    Please note the points that I bring up regarding the one GLARING omission the author made, regarding case law and "police protection"...

    I always tell people who want to rely on "police protection" that they can't be everywhere all the time and so are really just glorified "janitors" when it comes to a self defense situation, they come after the event has happened to clean up the mess. It's good to hear an officer be honest about it.

    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
