‘Sheltering’ Parkland School Cop Not the ‘Only One’ with No Duty to Protect

“The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that the police did not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm, even a woman who had obtained a court-issued protective order against a violent husband making an arrest mandatory for a violation.” … So much for those who would prohibit their countrymen from keeping and bearing arms. So much for those who claim the police will protect you. So much for those who disparage self-defense as vigilantism.

There is no such thing as a “good” cop. They all live as leeches on the backs of the productive class. — jtl, 419

Scot Peterson isn’t the “Only One” with no dutry to protect.

“Many have called him a coward, but former sheriff’s deputy Scot Peterson had no legal duty to stop the slaughter at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, his attorneys say,” the Sun-Sentinel reported Saturday. “Peterson took shelter rather than confront the killer, but he did not act with malice or bad faith … Therefore he can’t be held legally responsible for the deaths, they say in court documents.”

Morally, they’re wrong. Legally, they’re right.

“Anti-gun lobbyists get away with proposing to completely disarm the citizens only because most citizens just assume the police will protect them. That assumption is false,” the summary for “Dial 911 and Die” by attorney Richard W. Stevens notes. “The police cannot protect everyone — in fact the police usually have no legal duty to protect anyone.”

Combat Shooter's Handbook Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsThis is not news. The book has been around 1999. Stevens proved his claims by citing relevant statutes and precedents.

“For nearly every American state and territory, this book shows how the police owe no legal duty to protect individuals from crime,” the synopsis continues. The police in most places do not even have to come when you call.”

SCOTUS weighed in on the issue back in 2005.

“The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that the police did not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm, even a woman who had obtained a court-issued protective order against a violent husband making an arrest mandatory for a violation.”

So much for those who claim the police will protect you. So much for those who disparage self-defense as vigilantism.

It’s doubtful Scot Peterson will need to do much more to get the court to reject the lawsuit. I’m not a lawyer, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s free of it soon, unless he chooses to go after the father of the boy he refused to try and save for attorney fees and court costs.

Living with himself is another matter…

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteAll unclassified Army and Marine Cops manuals and correspondence courses are products of the US Federal Government. They are NOT subject to copyright and can be freely copied and redistributed.

The Marine Corps Institute (MCI) develops correspondence courses for Marines with all kinds of Military Occupational Specialties (MOS) on all manner of subjects. This is one of those courses.

The print is relatively small because that is the way it was in the original and this is an exact reproduction. Also, as a tribute to the individual (and a touch of reality), you will notice that the editorial pencil marks and underlined passages that were put there by the Marine that took this course. They were intentionally left in the reproduction.

This version of the course was authorized in September of 1984. With the exception the development of Infrared technology, it contains information and techniques that have changed very little since the Vietnam war. These battle proven tactics are as valid today as they were in Quang Nam province in 1968.

They will maintain their validity during the upcoming inevitable event of total economic, political and social collapse. Yours for freedom in our lifetimes. jtl, 419

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
