SF Examiner Publishes My Protect Yourself LTE

Dear Everyone;

The SF Examiner recently published LTE's on crime in the nice neighborhoods. From people getting robbed on their doorsteps or down the block at night. Then an apartment building which put in security cameras and caught a robbery in the lobby on tape and the police wouldn't review the video to see what the suspect looked like ( yes that's right ). The victim even gave a detailed description of the felon and the police simply said - consider yourself lucky. Then there's armed robberies in broad daylight in the nice neighborhood.

So I wrote an LTE which addressed the issue the best possible way - protect yourself - the SF Examiner agreed and published.

Arm yourselves
Letters to The Examiner bewail crime in the neighborhoods and on readers’ doorsteps, and cavalier attitudes to catching criminals by the SFPD. Wake up, people — here are some hard facts.
Police departments are crime historians, recording what happened after the fact. Call 911 to report a crime or one in progress and no police department is mandated by law to respond. Supreme Court and lower court rulings back this up. As little as 20 percent of criminals are caught or even successfully prosecuted. Police officers spending their time writing traffic tickets or acting as construction-site traffic guards aren’t protecting and defending.
Trained, armed police officers get wounded or killed, which means unarmed citizens don’t have a chance against felons. People must take personal responsibility to protect themselves and their family’s lives by owning and carrying a firearm. It’s your life — protect it anyway you can.

Well said!

It never fails to amaze me how often people are
willing to pretend the police are there to protect
them from danger.

Cheers,

Brian
