I take exception to your presentation of the so-called 'facts' to the case. You have deliberately omitted a clear description of the incident and only made claims and accusations about what happened. There was no 'evidence' presented in your article. The job of the police is to solve crimes and if possible to bring the accused before the courts for administration of justice. The police have no directive to 'protect' the citizenry. Protection of individuals is the right and responsibility of the individual himself. That is the reason for the 2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution--the right to keep and bear arms. To put it another way: I carry a gun because 1) cops are too heavy to carry around, and 2) when seconds count, the cops are only minutes away, and 3) my personal protection is my job.
