Milwaukee County Sheriff: You Can Hide Under The Bed, Or You Can Fight Back

A sheriff who urged Milwaukee-area residents in a radio ad to learn to handle firearms so they can defend themselves is dismissing pointed criticism from the city’s mayor — calling the mayor’s response “weak” and telling Fox News “my job is to protect the public.”

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. stirred controversy after releasing a 30-second radio ad saying budget cuts have hurt officers’ ability to respond.

“With officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option,” he said in the ad. “You can beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back. … Consider taking a certified safety course in handling a firearm so you can defend yourself until we get there.”
