Not what they said. Not accountable is not accountable from a legal standpoint.
That's exactly what I mean. If an individual victim can't sue, the recourse is at the ballot box. Sometimes that is intentional.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

This is SCOTUS though, not some bunch of cynical polititions. The principle is that the state has no obligation to protect it's citizens. What they do about it is a separate issue.

What it means is the cops cannot be sued for not showing up.

He answered it right. The fallout from answering "no, im a coward" is much worse.

Was he even asked? I don't see anything in there to suggest that he was answering a direct question.

Meanwhile . . . in FAIL:
Florida school shooting: Officer Scot Peterson defends actions "This will end badly."

His attorney, Joseph DiRuzzo, said his client believed the gunfire was coming from outside the school.

He followed his training by taking cover and prompting a lockdown, the lawyer said.

Mr DiRuzzo said it was "patently untrue" that Mr Peterson was a coward on the day.

["Snip!--Ed.]

Sheriff Israel said that footage from the scene had left him "devastated" and "sick to my stomach". Maybe . . . next time . . . pay attention to all of those phone calls?

["Snip!"--Ed.]

Per the gnome's question:

Only when he ran towards the sound, he said, did he realise it was gunshots.

Broward Sheriff's Office had trained him to seek cover and assess the situation in the event of outdoor gunfire, his lawyer said. Mr Peterson did so, and then told the sheriff's office he had heard shots, prompting a "Code Red" lockdown of the school campus.

When police arrived, he told them he thought the gunman was outside - a belief backed up by "radio transmissions [which] indicated that there was a gunshot victim in the area of the football field," Mr Peterson said.

The best roundhouse kicks. And no one kicks a better spin kick than Donald J Trump, believe me. Don’t believe the lying press or crooked Hillary if they try to tell you otherwise.
