    Police are obligated to protect and serve. They swear an oath hahhaha

    They swear to uphold the constitution of the United States, and of california (or state) as well as perform their duties (protect and serve) diligently.

    That said, police are also given orders to stand down on antifa in quite a few blue cities which I think is bullshit

    You’ve been able to say no but it was police discretion if you should receive a citation as I have understood it.

    The good news is that ultimately, the police will still do a lot for the community even while the community decides to shit on the police.

    It’s common now adays to see people rag on police and rag on people in positions of control, safety, responsibility and accountability.

    I’ll stick to defending the police and laughing at comifornia

    Somebody has to be an adult around that place and ground the troublemakers. Too many short sighted idealists, and not enough adults to say no.

    I would be there to help the police, or anyone else for that matter, because its the right thing to do, not the mandated thing to do. That we now have to spell out that its ok to do the wrong thing to our fellow man because of something he does for a living, that's the crazy part. Dipshit don't even know how to rebel until they get told what and how.

    KA aside, lets talk about this subject objectively. Right off the bat, the "protecting blacks from aggressive cops" is a complete Homer because no one ever questions why blacks seem to have an issue with laws and police. Forget such an obvious elephant in the room and lets talk about helping police if they request aid during an arrest. I have questions about injured or dead civilians and who ends up responsible. The country has many wimps who can not go hands on if need be especially in KA with all of the fancy boys roaming the streets.

    All Newsom is doing is making political moves. Nothing more. Hes trying to make his way for a presidential run 2024.

    Unfortunately politics run the state and there agendas. Good news is that in rural areas they run there own rules and the sheriff's will back them.

    All the big cities are all political.

    Funny thing is the homeless is a huge issue in CA. But the politicians refuse to acknowledge that.

    I would likely help out an officer in distress if it seemed like there was no way the situation could be deescalated since, as you mentioned, it is the right thing to do. However, not helping is not doing the "wrong thing", it is doing nothing. The wrong thing would be to help the criminal!

    Semantics aside, not getting involved in a likely dangerous situation, in which a officer is forcibly trying to arrest a criminal, should not be considered illegal.

    I'm curious if the "protecting blacks from aggressive cops" is in the actual wording or merely a "journalistic" interpretation.

    So when do the law enforcement agencies state wide just say F it and give the middle finger to the politicians, and tell every single person in the state that they are on their own and do not call us as we will not respond.

    That also includes no escort or security for said political figures. Wonder how fast these slugs would change their tune.

    I must admit, I was not aware of this either. Interestingly, the Supreme Court recently ruled that the police did not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm. It's a crazy world out there, with many laws making no sense at all (to me).
