Why have police if people are allowed to openly carry weapons and attack people in broad daylight?

Where were the police to protect him? Why didn't the police not arrest these people immediately for blocking traffic? If we can't count on the police to protect, then we have to protect ourselves >.<

Cops are under no obligation to protect you. Their only purpose is to uphold the law, and to generate revenue for the municipality (writing tickets, summons, etc.).

Blocking the street is against the law. Brandishing a weapon with intent to use is against the law. Using said weapon is against the law. But I get your point.

I thought the police motto was "to serve and protect"
