Who is the police supposed to protect?

But when a person is assaulted in public, especially by strangers, how can that be a non-seizable offence?... Surely common sense should come to play and if a person is clearly harmed or has suffered grievous hurt, the police should investigate, even if the person is not a civil servant. As tax payers (directly or indirectly) all, we deserve equal protection under the law.
