Crime increases when people become dependent on the Govt to protect them. Kennesaw, GA has a law that all heads of households are required to own a gun. The crime rate dropped significantly, and they haven't had a murder in over 25 yrs.
The Supreme Court affirmed several years ago that police are under no obligation to protect you. Mises.org states that police are there to simply enforce the laws of the state against the citizens.
To be generous toward the police, the only thing they are under obligation to protect is your rights. And, the only right you have to make sure you are not a victim of crime is your right to self defense.
Complacency and dependence on the state is what has caused the high crime rates in these areas, not lack of police.
