That's because, in theory, the laws do the protecting.

Laws only protect people when the enforcers are on their side.

Well it's not.

I mean, if you saw a child struggling, you may or may not save them depending on what kinda person you are (I think I would too) But it isn't your duty.

The reason they said that, was because so many stupid ******* get really good lawyers for free who find loopholes in every god damn law, so they have to abolish laws like that to prevent people from getting out of time in prison due to a loop hole.

It's like when that faggot in your class talks back to your teacher, and then gets his mom to waver any punishment, even though he deserves it for being such a prick to someone he should respect.

I don't need to look it up to know that your source is, at best, out of context.

it means i the police watch you getting stabbed they have no obligation to do anything. A man in a subway in new york was stabbed while police watched from three feet away behind a glass door and did nothing. Man sued police, no convictions

I'm gonna call bs.... There are plenty of violations against the law there... Assault, Attempted Murder, etc and if he was being mugged, well there's a whole new set of chargers there.
