guys, i need a little help with something here. i've read in the past that the supreme court has ruled several times that the police are not legally bound to protect you or intervene on your behalf.

does anyone know the case names or numbers so i could look it up for myself? i've been searching google for the last hour and can't really find what i'm looking for. help a brother out.

P.S.: this is for research purposes only. DO NOT TURN THIS INTO A BASHING THREAD OR I WILL ASK THE MODS TO LOCK IT.
thanks.

I think the most recent is Castle Rock v. Gonzales.

I also think that it was the 3rd time the USSC has ruled the gov does not /is not/ etc, protect the individual.

I know you asked for USSC rulings but one of the more graphic (and IMO more impactful) cases is Warren v. District of Columbia. This is not a USSC case but check it out ... I suspect the recitation of facts (and the subsequent holding) makes it particularly useful for your research paper.

I sent you an IM. I wrote a 30 page paper on this very topic. If you want it, I'll send it.
