    police are not legally obligated to protect you. If there are looting/riots it's up to you to defend yourself. There are times when morons riot simply because their favorite team won/lost

    Why is pointing out the obvious "flame bait"?

    The "OBVIOUS" is that the job of the police is supposed to be to serve and protect.

    Justices disagree with you

    "Serve & protect" is simply a catch phrase

    Makes no difference what I "think" it is. The justices ruled on the protection part. Did you try to read the posted link?

    I read it. It doesn't mean I agree. Again, what do you think the job of the police is supposed to be?

    You keep confusing "supposed" with their actual obligations , what you & I might "feel/think" their job is was over ruled by the justices

    Oddly, when the Police came out in force they were damned for being to vigilant in their response to the threat. Now, when the police stay out of the looter's way, they are damned for that. This is a no win situation for them.

    Basically, they're just doing a terrible job all around.

    See post 11. Even when it's their job they are not there. Your safety is your responsibility. Store owners are defending themselves with guns

    But do we want them to protect the businesses from the looters or to not escalate the things by showing up in riot gear and arresting people?

    There is middle ground between not reacting and overreacting.

    Explain that to us. Do they wear riot gear? After all, last night bottles were being thrown. Do they use tear gas to disperse the crowds? Well, the governor declared a state of emergency now so there will be a curfew. Anyone out after the curfew will be arrested.

    Just replace them with robots and the problem will be solved, at much lower costs. Win/win.

    I think they did that in a couple of movies. Didn't work out well.

    Riot gear is different from full-on paramilitary rambo gear. Give them a helmet & face shield and a billy club like riot police. They don't need armored personnel carriers, guys in full camo fatigues with sniper rifles and AR-15s pointed at unarmed civilians.

    And? Cops afraid they might scratch their nail polish or something? As long as they have a riot helmet with a face shield a little bottle isn't going to do anything.

    Police state back in action. And people still claim this is a "free" country. That's comical.

    So, they should allow people to throw bottles at them? What happens when the bottles are filled with gasoline? Or they throw bricks. Now that there is a curfew anyone out at night will be arrested as a law breaker. No more gray.

    Tase the guy who threw the bottle and arrest him?

    What happens when you run out of hypothetical situations? You asked the difference between over-reacting and not reacting at all and I answered that. I'm not going to waste my time having some ******** circular argument about hypothetical situations.

    Submit to your masters.

    Not sure it's wise to be out there protesting while there are riots & looting going on.
