Step number one: Lose the victim mentality and stop blaming the police in general. Police officers enforce existing laws.
Amen! Not only that, but let's be realistic about this: Cops cannot be everywhere at once. If we had enough cops that they could respond to any call within a matter of a couple of minutes (which would still be too late in some instances) our taxes would be astronomical! This is why The 2nd Amendment and self-defense laws are so very important to us and why we need to protect them!!! We cannot rely solely on others to protect us!
