TIL In 2012, a man was brutally stabbed while restraining a subway stabber who had killed 4 people. When police showed up they did nothing to treat the mans wounds or get him medical help. The courts later ruled that police have no legal obligation to protect or serve the public.

This is also true in Canada:

Canada: Court Of Appeal Affirms Police Owe No Private Law Duty Of Care To Victims Or Their Families

Ultimately, the plaintiffs brought a claim against the Toronto Police Services Board (“TPSB”), alleging negligent investigation and seeking a declaration that the police should reinvestigate their son’s death as a homicide. The TPSB brought a motion to strike the claim under Rule 21 of the Rules of Civil Procedure on the basis that no duty of care was owed by police to victims of crime and their families and that the plaintiffs’ claim disclosed no reasonable cause of action or was statute barred.

The plaintiffs argued that the police owed a duty to them, as family members of a victim of crime, to conduct “a reasonably diligent investigation of [their son’s] death and to properly classify the death as a homicide or undetermined.” The motion judge disagreed, holding that the Court of Appeal had already determined in Norris v Gatien and Wellington v Ontario that no duty of care existed between police and the victims of crime and their families. The motion judge found that it was plain and obvious that the TPSB did not owe a duty of care to the plaintiffs and struck the claim in its entirety.

See? Even In Canada, The Police Have No Obligation / Duty To Protect You !!!!!!!!!

The appeal court panel ruling upheld trial judge Justice Ross Collver’s
decision, which stated that the police are guardians and not guarantors of
public safety. Collve
r found the police officer was negligent, but said
there was no direct evidence to suggest the RCMP’s failure to investigate her complaint caused the violent outburst.

POLICE ARE USING TEARGAS AND WATER CANNONS AGAINST PEACEFUL, UNARMED PROTESTERS.

THIS IS WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO US. I’M FUCKING ANGRY THAT I CAN ONLY SIT HERE AND UPDATE SHIT.

PLEASE REBLOG AND SIGNAL BOOST.

This was the photo right before the break up of the protest.

We are unarmed. We have only our umbrellas.

They started it first. How fucking inhumane.

A child was hit by teargas. A Child.

A monk in the protest literally prayed and begged the police to stop. 

Dozens of people are injured from the water cannon.

My friends are freaking there. And I’ve lost contact with them. The last text I sent was to go to our campus because it is safer there.

I’m so angry. Dear international followers, please acknowledge and please boost this post.

I’m sorry for swear words but I just can’t tolerate this shit anymore. I’m ashamed that I can only sit here, translating and donating. But I’m going to keep updating the situation nonetheless.

If you are unaware, the Thai people are protesting against monarchy and asking for abolishment or reform to their government so that they can have a true democracy.

This began because the Future Forward Party, a political group pushing for democratic reform, was forcefully disbanded by the unjust court.

Currently, two protesters face life imprisonment and >50 more have been arrested since the start of these protests.

Please show support to the group of students organizing, เยาวชนปลดแอก, (Free Youth) and spread the word.
