In the following secretly filmed video, Police Departments all over the county state; "You're on your own" when an intruder comes into your home or apartment. They largely say there is nothing you can do if you do not have a gun. And, most of them say to the investigative reporter, you should not have a gun!
What is the matter with most Police Departments in America? Are they simply crazy or do they just not care about their citizens at all? What did they put in their water coolers?
And, what is with Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn? Who would want somebody like that as their Police Chief?
Last week, Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn, sparred with U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., in Capitol Hill testimony. Flynn supports a proposed assault-weapons ban.
The Honorable and Noble Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke has sent a letter to Graham, apologizing on behalf of his constituents for what the sheriff described as Flynn’s “embarrassing” and “rude” testimony, accusing the chief of being hostile to gun rights, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The two men have had a strained relationship for some time.
“So basically … I’m on my own?” the man repeatedly asks police. The answer, on several occasions, is “yes.”
That’s the same point Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke was trying to make in a public service announcement earlier this year, a message that became a heated conversation on talk shows nationwide and made Clarke a conservative darling. In the PSA, Clarke advises Milwaukee County residents to think about protecting themselves because, Clarke claims, budget cutbacks have significantly cut into his department’s response times.
“Consider taking a in handling a firearm so you can defend yourself until we get there. You have a duty to protect yourself and your family. We’re partners now. Can I count on you?” Clarke says in the radio spot.
O’Keefe’s “On Your Own” video pulls the quote from Clarke and includes a clip from CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight, in which the host, a gun-control zealot in the eyes of many conservatives, takes aim at the sheriff during a segment with Clarke and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, a vocal advocate of expanded gun-control laws.
