    Not that bad.

    His shorthand must be rough..... he took 4 separate comments and merged them to make me look like an anti-government nutter! Not totally wrong, but.......

    I laughed when I read it.

    I have never seen a person drink tea from a coke bottle while standing on their head, that doesn't mean it is illegal.

    From the article:
    "He says "law enforcement are not the first responders, we are. It's up to you to protect yourself. Do you want to rely on the system or yourself? I'd rather take my chances with myself.""

    I don't think he made you sound like a "nutter" at all. The courts have ruled over and over again that the police (government agents) are not responsible for your individual safety, rather only for the safety of the public as a whole. In other words, you're on your own. If you dial 911 and the police do not respond in time to save you, then they're not liable.

    ". . . a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any particular individual citizen . . ."

    Oh, no doubt.

    Castle Rock v. Gonzalez sums that up rather well. The way he trimmed it down I thought came out a bit different than when I said it. But no matter, we are the first responders and I stand by that comment. Once the federal court system created that precedent, there was indeed no doubt in my mind.

    All in all, the coverage was decent.
