    I probably distrust the government much less than Ikari does. However, his point about distrust, which I agree with according to my own limits of trust, has nothing to do with who anyone is going to call when they're in trouble. You can call the cops when you need them and still have a healthy distrust of them just like you can buy a car and still have a healthy distrust of car dealers. Your response to him doesn't really make sense.

    What are you talking about? Cops have precognition and instant teleportation, they can be there 2 minutes before you need them! I mean listen to all these experienced folk here telling me how they can protect me at any given moment. 1 minute before the dude pulls a gun on me, the cops are there stopping him! All glory to authority!

    Makes perfect sense if you were ever a cop that responded to HUNDREDS of people that needed help...and that includes especially ex offenders....and every other type of individual.....you have no idea how many people are saved a day by police...ALL people like you harp on the very few incidents that hit the media and you ignore the simple fact that its not even half of 1/4 of a % of the interactions with police and citizens that dont have any negative outcomes....so harp on lol...ive heard all this before...

    The biggest value of the cops is their existence. That's it. Because the cops exist and arrest some folk and **** with everyone else on some aggregate level; there is some lessening of intent. It will never be zero, but without cops in total you would certainly see a lot more massive disarray and anarchy. So it's not to say that cops don't serve a purpose. But rather that perhaps you think your purpose is greater than what it actually is. For the most part, cops are a hindrance and annoyance to most people. I'm happy you're there, I don't want to do away with you. But you ain't all that and a bag of chips. You're a untrustworthy branch of government more capable and willing to infringe upon our rights and liberties. As such you must be controlled, regulated, and monitored.

    Running away is often the response of those whom cannot logically respond. Run away little boy, have fun.
