It constantly amazes me that people are willfully ignorant of this fact: Police exist to arrest the guilty and collect evidence for a trial after the crime is committed. They are under no obligation to stop crimes from happening or protect citizens. This is reality, proven in court time and time again.
And yet our media chooses to ignore this fact as they tell Americans "you don't need to protect yourself, the police will do that for you."
If you believe the government is their to protect and provide, you are a fool. That is not opinion, that is fact. Provide for yourself and live longer.
