    I don't believe it - Sarah Brady told me to call the cops when I'm threatened. A cop would never do this. :wink:

    Just one more case reminding us that the police have no duty to protect you and, in fact, are free to even ignore you or give your attacker a courtesy ride back to your house, as in this case.
