RICHARD W. STEVENS SHOWED VIVIDLY that police have no duty whatsoever to protect individuals -- no matter what promises they've made. But here's one of the saddest cases I've ever heard of of police doing nothing while innocents died.
The mother of the dead little girls is suing for permission to sue the government. Wonder if it'll do her any more good than all the other lawsuits that have proceeded -- the suits in which courts have found again and again that police have no responsibility toward crime victims, even when the police themselves have made the victims vulnerable.
(Tks also to AZ for this sad story.)
