We owe no duty to protect the general public

We owe no duty to protect the general public

Let that sink in, SCOTUS says government is not obligated to protect a citizen self-defense is a personal problem.

"In a lot of cases, these are throw-away people”


Must the Government Protect Its Citizens If It Learns They Are in Danger? The Supreme Court Considers How Far Responsibility Reaches.

In posing this question, the Gonzales case tests the limits of a bedrock principle of constitutional law called the "state action" requirement.

Put simply, the "state action" requirement means that only the government - or persons acting as agents of the government - can violate the U.S. Constitution.

the majority disagreed. It held that there was no constitutional violation arising from the DSS’s (Government agency) failure to heed repeated warnings

What is interesting is how the religiously left statist above continues to blame the citizen (in this article “liberitarians”) when the issue is the ability of the state to use force without responsibility for that force or lack of competence in the application of that force.

Castle Rock v. Gonzales, 545 U.S. 748 (2005), was a case decided by the Supreme Court of the United States, in which the court ruled, 7-2, that a town and its police department could not be sued under 42 U.S.C. §1983 for failing to enforce a restraining order, which had led to the murder of a woman's three children by her estranged husband.

Police abuse and incompetence is not a new issue this is an increasing problem.

You would think a practiced statist goon would look out for video cameras!

When looking for videos, I noted that all of the worst clips of police abuse of power (beatings) most of the videos are from cities that are known to be “liberal” and democrat - why is that?
