    That's not what the USSC said. Although the Police don't have a general duty to preserve public safety that is applicable in every situation, in many specific situations at which you are present, you may have a duty to act to keep the peace.
    From Warren v. District of Columbia, just one of MANY HUNDREDS of cases where it has been affirmed that the police have no duty to protect any citizen...

    "it is a 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."
    This refers to a general duty to provide police protection, which I acknowledged the Police to not have. Members of the public do not, on the grounds that the police should have protected them, have a right to bring action against the government every time someone victimizes them. I was referring to a specific duty that you have to exercise due diligence to preserve the peace in situations in which you are present and able to intervene against impeaceable conduct.

      Wrong again, there was a case, the exact name of which eludes me, but it was somebody against the city of Atlanta, where it was held that an officer has no duty to act to prevent a crime from happening.

      To me, open carry is the equivalent of the couple making out and groping each other at the food court in the mall. Yeah, they are probably legal, as long as they don't start getting undressed. But they are still social retards.

        What the Court has held is that the Police have a duty to preserve the peace but not a duty to protect any specific individual.

          Actually, i'm done proving you wrong. I'm not sure what you're trying to pose as here, but it's failing miserably.

                  ...Yeahhhh..... adeckard, the excerpt from the IC code in the beginning is what is correct. If you can find it buried deep in the legal debate.
