That's just the LAPD's motto, not a legally binding order. Still: whom or what are they to serve and protect, and from whom or what?

Kindly point me to the law, regulation, or similar, on the federal or state level, that says the police are to protect the public, the people.

Well, then... that's (part of) the problem right there. If it's not the job of the police to help protect people, then what exactly IS their job? Making money for the government by handing out parking tickets?

So if a cop is walking by and sees a guy beating up an elderly woman and stealing her purse, he is under no obligation -- and it isn't considered his duty as a police officer -- to help her?
