Take the Dallas, TX area, I can tell you the ratio of cops to citizens are about 1 policeman for every 1100 citizens and this is in the city. Time for a cop unless there is a “MWAG” (man with a gun) call is about 20-30 minutes at times
The mayor doesn’t want to say anything for fear of running off business but he was beat up himself quote: Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett's office released a statement criticizing the ad: "Apparently Sheriff David Clarke is auditioning for the next Dirty Harry movie."
Barrett was beaten up several years ago by someone with a tire iron, and Clarke said he thought that would make the mayor "a lot more sensitive to people being able to defend themselves in such instances. A firearm and a plan of defense would have come in handy for him that day."
David Clarke was also quoted as saying: I'm not telling you to 'Hey, pick up a gun and blast away.' ... People need to know what they are doing if they chose that method - to defend themselves,"
The state of Wisconsin has the castle doctrine and there are about 155,000 CCW holders and Sheriff Clarke want to tap that power that has be bestowed on the public to help out. He said he is not looking for vigilantes but for people to be responsible for their own safety
