There is one thing I fear more than anything else out there. That thing that I fear is the police officer. Not because I'm a criminal. Far from it, in fact. I'm an everyday citizen who fears that my rights will be violated by a criminal with a badge. I do not need a police response for my rights to be protected. If I am not at home and a person breaks in and steals my stuff, I have an insurance policy that will reimburse me for that loss. If I am home and someone decides to break in and steal my stuff, I have a .40 caliber that will render the intruder harmless faster than any police response can.
I suppose it would be alright to have a police department that only responds when summoned for the purpose of rendering immediate assistance.
