This surprises me. I was under the impression that SCOTUS had ruled that the police have no obligation to protect citizens from crime.

Castle Rock v. Gonzales
The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that the police did not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm, even a woman who had obtained a court-issued protective order against a violent husband making an arrest mandatory for a violation.

The decision, with an opinion by Justice Antonin Scalia and dissents from Justices John Paul Stevens and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, overturned a ruling by a federal appeals court in Colorado. The appeals court had permitted a lawsuit to proceed against a Colorado town, Castle Rock, for the failure of the police to respond to a woman’s pleas for help after her estranged husband violated a protective order by kidnapping their three young daughters, whom he eventually killed.

That's a good point. I'd have to read the opinions to say anything intelligent about them. If I were making the case for the plaintiffs in this case, I'd differentiate between failure to respond because of negligence, stupidity, or higher priority situations and willful withdrawal of help when help can be provided.
