Sheriff Clarke gets it...
Its the anti gun mayor and police chief that are very antigun and get all the air time.
I heard this run on our local Milwaukee radio station yesterday. It’s stunning! I love Sherriff Clark! He is telling the residents of the most populated county in our state that budget cuts lessened the manpower to a point where this county cannot be policed well. He’s an honest man in a fight not only with the criminals, but with an unsupportive county government.
Calling 911 to save you from a home invasion is pointless. They might get there in time to write up the reports, and draw a chalk outline around your body, but they’re NOT going to save you.
With the crap going on in America these days we have to regard all unscheduled, unexpected visitors, especially at night, are suspicious.
Recently a thuggish looking black guy came to my front door, banging on it. Through the door I asked who he was, and he starting shouting gibberish I couldn’t understand.
I told him to leave, twice, he refused. Then, I chambered a shell in my 12 gauge pump, he heard it, and promptly left.
Right after it started, I called 911 and explained the situation....
THEY NEVER SHOWED UP.
I’m a single woman living in a rural area of a predominantly rural county. Our sheriff’s department has 9 deputies to patrol the entire county, which means that there are maybe 2 on duty doing their rounds at any one time. They cannot be everywhere at once and response time could be as much as half an hour or more, so you’re darned right that I consider myself the first line of defense in terms of protecting myself. As far as I’m concerned owning firearms is a necessity as much as it is a right. And in the event of trouble then any call I make to 911 will likely be after the fact.
My new bumper sticker:
“1911 — BETTER THAN 911”.
Has anyone noticed that it is the Sheriffs that have taken the public stand on these life and death issues? Meanwhile, it seems that the Chiefs of Police have been hiding under their beds.
I believe that each of us need to find out what our own Sheriff thinks and let him/her know what we think.
. . . when seconds count police are minutes away . . .
And never will...
Of the multiple times I had been involved in a violent episode I could have EASILY simply walked away, long gone, over the horizon, long before any cop ever showed after calling 911.
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
Milwaukee sheriff tells public to arm themselves. Calling 911 isn’t best option.
