Anyone who depends on any law enforcement agency, state of federal, to protect them from ANYTHING is a complete and utter fool.
They have neither the time, resources nor the mandate to do so. Time do to crime rates and resources due to funding. The mandate part come from the Supreme Court who declared that law enforcement personal have no mandate to protect individual citizens.
Self protection and personal security is the responsibility of each and every individual. Accordingly each and every person should have the training and the equipment to do so. Anything less is sheer folly.
