    Default Cops have no constitutional duty to protect you

    All they care about are protecting themselves.

    That's why none of them confronted the Uvalde shooter.

    It sure seemed like they were doing more to help the shooter than stop him.

    A lot of people imagine they could be a courageous hero.

    Imagination and bluster are easy.

    Just like a lot of "Second Amendment solutions" blowhards stayed home with their bang-bangs on Jan 6 rather than answer Trump's alarmist call that the republic was in grave danger.

    In real time, in the fog of uncertainty, and not knowing any Intel about how many shooters were in the school building, I have serious doubts that any of the "good guys with guns" who post on this board would have
    actually courageously rushed into the Uvalde school.

    The right wing packed SCOTUS just decided no one will protect citizens in this nation


    I guess they want the people to defund the police


    Why would people vote money for a police force who will refuse to protect the tax payers?


    What does the SCOTUS say is the job of the police?


    Just arresting people after they kill a whole school full of kids


    I guess the SCOTUS doesn’t believe in the good guy with a gun bit even if you PAY that person to protect you

    The SCOTUS SAYS that person can just stand there and watch you get murdered

    I'll wait for all the facts to come in before judging the cops in this. The media keeps spewing out false information which changes daily.

    Should the police protect a child who is being raped by someone?


    Or can they just say


    Oh I couldn’t do anything



    The guy had a gun and might have killed me





    What’s next?



    Military don’t have to protect the nation if they get scared?

    Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini and Mao have one thing in common. They didn't go after the media, they controlled it.

    That's the joke...they don't.

    Copaganda in TV and movies gives people the wrong impression of law enforcement.

    I think they knew right away that there was just one shooter...I think all this cover up is because the Uvalde police killed a couple of those kids...in fact, they may have killed most of the kids.
