    Okay, not sure about the copywrite part of this, so here is the link
    "fundamental principle of American law that a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any individual citizen." [Warren v. District of Columbia,(D.C. Ct. of Ap., 1981)]
    If I have to explain it, you wouldn't understand

    There're gonna say what they plan to say if they ever succeed in disarming citizens - policemen don't need guns.

    And then...

    Maybe, just Maybe after they disarm the Armed Forces they will actually try to disarm the criminals, I'm not counting on it.

    Well, after they ban guns, then comes Bows and arrows, then knives, the last time I heard, sticks do grow in trees, So I don't know what they will do then.

    Hey, after a couple of boots up their sorry butts, we'll all be walking around like Chris with sandles and socks.

    I cannot begin to imagine what drove him too it, but am not surprised that it happened. The level of stress in the business and the ever-dwindling recruitment base is really making it a tough job to love these days. We recently had a speaker cover the topic of Post Traumatic Stress in LE work and they touched on the fact it is 24-7 through out your career versus the average length of time it is induced by combat. Most of the older officers like me are also vets and we often see the sign of stress long before a fellow officer realizes his dilemma. The LE business has a very high rate of alcoholism, drug abuse, divorce, depression and crappy pay associated with it.
