They always say the same damned thing

There is a chant occurring that has started to irritate me. The chant is a variant of this saying "don't take the law into your own hands, do nothing".

It seems everytime I read an article about someone protecting themselves from a criminal, and sometimes killing them the article has near the bottom the same line spoken by a cop.
"Any time someone's going to confront an armed individual you're going to have to really be careful of what you're doing," he says. "It's not something the police service is going to suggest people do is try and disarm or confront people armed with firearms." [source Canada]

Caldwell Police Chief Bob Sobba says he'd rather citizens not take matters into their own hands.[source USA]

Ms Perveen said: "The guys did a fantastic job but my advice would be to open the till and stand back. I don't want them to risk their lives again." [source UK]
Why do they feel we have to roll over for the criminal. They are not the only people in the world who can protect us. We can.

I really get pissed when I hear then talk about First responders. If I am somewhere and the SHTF guess what. I am a first responder, the police and others are second responders.

So they are saying that we should role over and go BAAAA! and let the wolves get what they want.
