  •  Obviously, you have no familiarity with law (0+ / 0-)

    or law enforcement, other than what one can glean from a tv show.

    It must shock you very much that in real life, police cannot arrive on the scene and nab the bad guys every time.

    •  Sorry, wrong again (0+ / 0-)

      I've been a legal secretary for a couple of decades now, and my boss does a lot of criminal defense.  Not to mention that I was held up at gunpoint a couple of years ago in my own neighborhood.  No cops.  It hasn't been solved yet.

      I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country. -- Thomas Jefferson

    •  In both of the cases cited the police (0+ / 0-)

      did have the ability to arrive (and in one case did arrive) but did not protect civilians due to negligence, incompetence, or just a decision not to bother.
