It Is Your “Right and Responsibility” to Protect Yourself!
The Police Have No Legal Duty to Protect You
From the article:
You may or may not have heard of the case where three women were brutally raped, beaten, and tortured for fourteen hours because the police wouldn’t help them, and the courts held that the police did nothing wrong.
One of the more prominent cases on this issue is Warren v. District of Columbia, 444 A.2d 1 (D.C. App. 1981). In Warren, the court of appeals for our nation’s capital ruled that the police had no legal responsibility to protect victims of rape, assault and burglary who called to report the crimes in progress, but found the police unable (or unwilling) to assist them, even though they promised to do so.
That’s right folks, in your hour of need (or, your immediate need)….the cavalry may not be coming. There is NEVER any guarantee that police will arrive in time when you call. Ever. There is a saying that goes….when seconds count the police are minutes away. Remember that.
