If a citizen needs protecting, than most likely somebody was breaking the law in the first place.

You have to pick one or the other, as often they can contradict each other. "Protecting citizens" is subjective and causes loopholes, enforcing laws is more concrete. Stop looking for justification that the US is an evil military state.

...So what? And what does "protecting the citizens" even mean exactly? The laws protect the citizens.

If you've ever taken a law course, you understand how 						******					 up it is.   
Police have no obligation to protect you.   
Yet in most cases, you're not allowed to protect yourself either.   
   
9/10 self defence cases charge the attacked for defending themselves by causing serious injury or death to the attacker.   
   
Their logic is that the attacked did not simply flee the scene   
(The attacker being faster, having a gun etc. Is irrelevant apparently.)   
Or if there was no exit, the attacked used excessive force unessential for defending themselves.   
   
Your choices are:   
A. Deal with it yourself but be charged for harming someone attemting to kill you.   
or   
B. Call the police and risk imminent death.   
   
(This doesn't apply to battered women syndrome.)

Remember, cops carry guns to protect themselves, not you.

The whole point of this is to keep police from being sued if they fail to save or protect someone.

If someone breaks into your house and you call the police, they'll definitely come to help you. It's just not a guarantee that you'll be protected.

So what this means is that you cannot rely on cops to protect you from anything. Sure they'll try, but your best defense is yourself.
