Massachussetts Cop Admits that Police Don't Really Care About Public Safety posted 04/17/2015, 12:06 PM (The Free Thought Project)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]


Boston, MA — A cyclist in Boston filmed an interaction that confirms what many people already know. The duty of the police is not to protect society, but to enforce the law.

In fact, there is an oft-cited DC Court of Appeals case that legally set this precedent; cops do not protect citizens.

Warren v. District of Columbia held that police do not owe a specific duty to provide police services to citizens based on the public duty doctrine. They are to enforce the law only.

The Boston cyclist who goes by the YouTube handle, Me You, witnessed first hand, the complacent and lackadaisical attitude of police when it comes to public safety. The entire interaction was caught on his bike cam.

During his Tuesday morning bike ride to work over the Longfellow bridge, the cyclist witnessed a state trooper dangerously parked in the bike lane. The trooper’s vehicle was creating a vulnerable bottleneck of traffic and had a cyclist been in that bike lane, they would have been forced into oncoming traffic.

Showing real concern for public safety the cyclist attempted to inform a Boston State trooper of the dangerous actions of one of his co-workers. This proved to be completely futile.

When the cyclist explains to the state trooper that his fellow cop’s choice of parking spots is creating a public safety hazard, the state trooper is blatantly honest about not caring.

“No, we don’t really care about these bike lanes,” the trooper callously explains.

“I’m just trying to point out a dangerous scenario and maybe you can help out,” pleads the cyclist.

When asked if he could simply attempt to rectify a hazardous
