Warren v. DC is a DC Court of Appeals case that is often cited by anarcho-capitalists and voluntaryists to support the fact that police owe no duty to protect specific individuals. In this scholarly episode of the podcast, I break down the Court’s opinion into digestible chunks. In doing so, I confirm the assertion and explain the Court’s reasoning, which ultimately does underscore the need for privatized policing.

I highly recommend that the listeners download and read the opinion for themselves. Warren v. District of Columbia, 444 A.2d 1 (D.C. App. 1981).

Nothing stated in this Episode is to be construed as constituting legal advice or an offer to provide legal advice or services. I am still a law student and not an attorney.
