Today on Legalese, we discuss a very disappointing video from one of my favorite YouTube political commentators, The Actual Justice Warrior. Somehow this normally stellar YouTuber got it in his head that the police having no duty to protect you is a complete myth.
He is embarrassingly wrong in that he not only relies on 2 cases as his evidence that have absolutely nothing to do with the supposed topic of his video…
But somehow this expert in criminal justice has absolutely no idea what the Police Powers are & has never heard of the public duty doctrine. So I made this video to correct the record and irrefutably prove the police have no duty to protect you.
