I don't understand the point one, aren't they allowed to warn about the potential danger. Yes, it is their duty to patrol the trouble spots so that the likelihood of any robbery is drastically reduced.

Well, you know it's not like some flood or earthquake warning. And it's not like you are in the Chambal valley, the area of daku Mangal Singh!

They may warn us. Though it's totally their fault an area becomes unsafe.

Nobody can tell you to leave an area because they (police) are incapable of doing their job. Then why are we (our taxes) paying them salaries and benefits?

This is my personal view.

I'll leave an area or go to an area when I feel like. At whatever time.

I believe everyone should get a little more authoritative and brave on their rights of hanging around anyplace. As long as your intentions are peaceful and you don't disturb people, you must be left alone.

Now I live in a city. In my native village we never care for any police advise. The only time police come there is when some clever fellow is doing some chit fund scam or similar.
