    Any cop who is a cop would never not respond to someone in need.

    True...but what I think he he referring to is the SCOTUS opinion that the police have no duty to the individual, but only to scoiety as a whole, i.e. under no compulsion to provide YOU individual protection or intervention on your behalf. Like you say...no REAL cop would ever, for a moment, not answer the call...but it was some d-bag from NYPD that let some woman get beaten half to death and did nothing back in the 80's IIRC.

    Plus, there is also Warren vs DC, where three women were beaten and raped for many hours because the police were called, but never arrived.

    I guess my thoughts on that are, what two calls have the pedal to the metal and you're hanging it out?
    Immediate assistance and baby choking.
