A common response to the question of "Why do you pay taxes?" usually includes something about roads, military, and police. The response is normally along the lines of, "well if we didn't pay taxes, who would protect us and do the job of the police?"
The idea that police protect you is a misconception as they will seldom prevent violence. They normally show up after the violence or crime has been committed and then try and find a culprit, or not.
The average response time to a 9-1-1 call is 10 minutes nationwide. In some cases the dispatchers do not even take the caller seriously and the victim ends up dead, when a crime could have actually been prevented.
The reality is that police act as revenue collectors for the state and are there to enforce the law only.

They most assuredly do not “protect and serve.” If you doubt this claim simply refer to Warren v. District of Columbia, in which the Supreme Court ruled that the police do not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm.
Below is yet another incident of incompetence on the part of the ones, people think are there to "keep them safe."
According to CNN, a Denver woman called 911 when her husband began to hallucinate and speak of “the end of the world.”
For 13 minutes, the wife spoke of fear — for herself, their three scared children, her husband.
Richard Kirk wanted his wife to shoot him, she told 911.
She screamed when he went to the family safe and grabbed a gun.
The 911 operator heard what sounded like a gunshot. The wife went silent on the 911 call.
Responding police found her dead Monday in the family home with an apparent gunshot wound to the head, authorities said. She was identified as Kristine Kirk by CNN affiliate KWGN.
Apparently Richard Kirk had eaten a marijuana cookie prior to murdering his wife, so we can most assuredly count on marijuana being painted as the culprit, or the gun, and NOT Richard Kirk.
When will this dependency upon thugs with uniforms to provide ostensible safety stop? How many more people will be ignored, beaten, or killed before Americans come to their senses and realize that the system is rife with corruption and violence?
