“Police have completely disappeared from #Berkeley. People getting beaten up. Red flags being waved in the air.”
This is a surprise? Again? Really?
What part of “when seconds count, the police are 20 minutes away” failed to register with gun-owning conservatives?
- The police have ZERO responsibility to protect you. None. This is settled case law. Never, ever, count on police protection from anything.
- The police work for the local mayor. The local mayor’s political allegiances dictate how the police will be utilized.
- This marks the third time – at least – that police protection has been proffered and then withdrawn.
- Street rallies serve no positive purpose, although they can be effectively used to demonstrate a) the politicization of the police as well as b) the violent lawlessness of the Alt-Left.
