Why Doesn’t God Protect the Innocent?

What if we rephrased that question with:  Why does God love the world?  The world includes evil people who commit evil deeds.  Why doesn’t God rescue every innocent person who comes in contact with evildoers?  God loves the evildoers, too.  He hates their behavior but he died for everyone’s sins.  In God’s eyes our sins are evil, but gave His life for us.  Couple this with free will.  We need to pray for those who could come in contact with evil and ask the Lord to influence the evildoers to change their evil minds.  ‘The prayer of a righteous person availeth much.’  (James 5:16)
