I promise, I won't get all tyrannical on you, you can trust me.
First and foremost, they should give up police protection. It provides a false sense of security. When seconds count, the police are minutes away,
they have no legal obligation to protect us (SCOTUS ruling), and their main function is to file reports AFTER a crime has been committed, then see if
