    Damning report on the Parkland shooting

    Many people don't realize that the Supreme Court has said that police do not have a duty to protect citizens.
    (Warren v. District of Columbia)

    Well, here's an example of that from the recent school shooting in Florida.

    The assigned "resource officer" Peterson doesn't enter the building for 48 minutes - long after other officers (who themselves delayed entering because of confusion, lack of leadership, poor communications, and an unclear department policy).

    And there are reports now that the incoming governor of Florida may remove sheriff Scott Israel of Broward County for the poor response of his officers.

    Logical, justified and in line with the requirement to 'serve the people'.
    On that basis I doubt it will happen. Here in the UK he would probably
    be promoted out of harms way.
