Take Note – Coming up in just a couple of weeks here in Jasper Pickens County Georgia our very own, Bill Cagle, Carlton Wilson and Joe Collins will be teaching us Home Defense Protection ~ if you want to be more informed on how you can protect you and your family, then it is a must to get signed up for the NRA Personal Protection in the Home class next month!
If you are truly serious about issues of self-defense then you might be interested to know that the police are not required by law to protect you. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the police have no constitutional requirement to provide anyone protection even if that person has a protection order from a court. Going one step further, the police cannot protect you. I should know since I’m a former police officer.
Quite simply, the police are not much more than the clean-up crew. They clean up the mess after the crime, do an investigation and hopefully get lucky. Eventually, they even may catch the perpetrator. In nearly fifteen years of experience, I can count the number of times I happened upon a serious crime in progress on one hand. As for arriving in time in response to an emergency call, I can count them on both hands. The overwhelmingly vast majority of the time, I caught the perp after the crime was committed… Courtesy of www.thesurvivalistblog.net
