Is The NYPD’s “Protect & Serve” Policy A Thing Of The Past?

(WAC-NYC)   WeAreChange recently got the opportunity to meet and Interview Joe Lozito, the selfless hero who put his life on the line to stop a serial killer. The story is only magnified when Joe finds out, that while being stabbed by the serial killer, the NYPD was standing by watching everything unfold from the safety of the conductors door. Currently in a legal suit, the NYPD and City of NY is arguing that the NYPD has NO duty to protect its own citizens.

    A thing of the past? Pigs have argued successfully for years at local and state levels that they have no obligation to protect anybody. When have you ever seen them protect anybody in the first place?

    this is what is so stupid with americans, especially for those in the city where this occured. if the police have no contract to protect and serve you, then how you can you even call it a contract or law to take from you fines, by force often, or detain harass and arrest you selectively in order to generate revenue, to spend among other things to pay people to continue to do these things to you in order to generate even more revenue to continue a cycle of corruption so bad. a cycle so bad that they are telling you outright that laws are selectively applied, to benifit the creators and enforcers of the those laws, and you have no choice but to be unarmed, uneducated, and unable to defend against those who are doing the doing.

    Language, specially when dealing with legal matters, has very narrow meaning. For example, ‘police officer’ is better defined as ‘policy officer’. Their primary duty is to act as revenue generators. They do this by enforcing mostly arbitrary policies called statutes. Within these parameters, the Constitution plays little, if any, role. This is why you are assumed to be guilty until proven otherwise. It’s why every single case is invariably expressed as STATE (or other virtual government entity) VERSUS YOUR NAME. It’s also why they are free to violate your privacy, take your property, and even kill you in cold blood, without evidence, trial, or conviction. It’s a great big corporation, where they are the executives, and the rest of us are the guys cleaning the ash trays. That whole "Protect and Serve" is advertising.

    Warren vs D.C makes this case look pedestrian and affirms what tends to shut the gun grabbers up. Police have no duty to protect you. I’m not so sure about the sheriff and his deputies, however.

  5. ED SKI says:

    they are forgetting one important thing- NYC has a ‘good samaritan’ law. That means even police are required to render aid- at the very least they must dial 911 for assistance- they cannot just stand there. The testimony of the cops reveals they violated the good samaritan law.

    The NYPD’s “Protect & Serve” Policy is only for the upper west side.
