Unlimited Powers?

Not having the benefit of a law-school education, I’m not sure I know whether or not elected officials, like mayors, have the power to order police to violate their oath.

Can police be ordered to remain uninvolved as they watch violent felonies committed in front of them?

Can a mayor arbitrarily declare entire sections of a city “available for destruction” by violent mobs, conspicuously withholding police protection from entire groups of people, who, via their tax dollars, have paid for it and have an absolute right to expect it?

Can a mayor actually suspend, at her whim, the entire criminal code?

Baltimore: What we’ve seen is the ultimate example of why we need the Second Amendment!

Partisan politicians might do their sworn duty and protect your life and property.

Then again, they might not!
