To protect and to serve..a complete fallacy.

We often hear the words “To protect and to serve” whenever we hear anyone speaking about the role of police officers.  Unfortunately, those words are a complete fallacy.  Not only is that notion a fallacy, but the supreme court has ruled that the police have no legal duty to protect individuals and stated the responsibility of police as follows:

“Police do not have a duty to protect you as an individual, but to protect society as a whole.”
