One sheriff in Wisconsin is encouraging citizens to “get in the game” and learn how to use a gun. Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. says you can’t count on local law enforcement because of cutbacks.
On “Starting Point,” Sheriff Clarke explains to Soledad why a citizen would be better off handling their own personal protection rather than relying on police officers.
“There are certain situations, and I think most people get that where 911 is going to be of no use,” Sheriff Clarke says. “And in those situations, there are certain things that you can do to protect yourself. It’s a public safety message, and I’m just here to let the people know, give them the information as to what’s going on and to give them options, if you will, as to how to defend themselves in those situations.”
“My message is for law abiding citizens in certain situations, not to go out and enforce the law,” he adds. “There are certain things that you can and should do to protect yourself. It’s always been my belief that personal safety is an individual responsibility.”
