Well count me among the scary-folk then.
I believe that individuals are responsible for their own security. However i also believe that the government plays a role in providing security from internal and external threats. I don't understand how you can separate a police officers responsibility to protect society, from his responsibility (or lack there of apparently) to protect individuals. Society is made up of individuals.
