The Myth of Police Protection

The Myth of Police Protection: Serve and Protect, Not My Job! SUPREME COURT RULING: Police Have No Duty To Protect The General Public Are Police Officers here to “SERVE & PROTECT” or “SEARCH & DESTROY? The issue here is Human Rights and we lost that when the Supreme Court decision in 2013 stated that police at all levels of the government have no duty to protect the citizens. This is an issue between the police and the citizens. When did the police decide that it was better to shoot to kill instead of talking to them or using other nonviolent or at least non-lethal methods?

But more commonly it’s a rejection of belief or disbelief in the existence of deities (Explicit Atheism), specifically the position that there are likely no deities. Strong (or positive) atheism is a term generally used to describe atheists who accept as true the proposition “gods do not exist”. Weak (or negative) atheism refers to any type of non-theism lacking a strong stance, thus include agnosticism or possibly apatheism. However, it must be addressed that atheists come in a variety of thinking, beliefs, convictions, and backgrounds but atheism is not a belief system nor is it a religion. Let me restate that many atheists tend toward secular philosophies or belief systems such as Humanism as well as Naturalism and generally...
