Laws for thee but not for me

The anti-rights establishment tell us that only Law Enforcement and Military should have firearms. They put that much trust into a public servant, that the anti-rights establishment would prefer to be unarmed and hold the police responsible for their safety. There are two very big problems with this line of thinking. First and foremost, SCOTUS has ruled several times that the police are not the citizens personal bodyguards and have to duty to protect the individual and have no liability when not enforcing the laws. The second problem, is officers like this one.

A former Frankfort Village Police Officer who is currently facing charges for allegedly trying to illegally obtain cell phone records on a fellow officer is now facing new charges in an unrelated incident.
On Thursday, February 23, 2012, New York State Police charged Daniel Herrman, 39, of Yorkville with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

I wonder how many times this upstanding officer arrested someone else for these same offences for which he is charged.

Of course, we can't forget the fiasco over in NY with the cops running the gun smuggling ring. From the NY Daily News, we have this.

Three more cops nabbed in a two-year sting face prison sentences after pleading guilty to conspiracy charges Monday in Manhattan Federal Court.

Yep, that's not who I want responsible for protecting me. I think I'll take on that job myself.
