Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke
Your safety is not the responsibility of Law Enforcement. In a recent conversation about this subject, a friend, who believed the lie that police were there to protect citizens, remarked that it says on the side of the police cars “To Protect and To Serve”. I reminded him that police are responsible to protect and to serve the city/county/state/federal government. NOT YOU. The District of Columbia Court of Appeals (equivalent to the State Supreme Court) said in Warren V District of Columbia that it is a “fundamental principle of American law that a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any individual citizen.”  Just ask the women who were repeatedly raped for 14 hours AFTER the police had been called.
YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR (AND YOUR FAMILY’S) SAFETY.
ARM YOURSELF. GET TRAINED. FIGHT BACK.
