Milwaukee County Sheriff David A Clarke Jr

The following video is from an interview with Milwaukee County Sheriff David A Clarke Jr.  He is saying what I have been telling friends and family for years.  The gap between when we can get there and what could be done to you is huge.  You can't always prevent victimization, there is simply evil people out there that commit  random horrific acts but what you can do is lessen the level to which you suffer.  This is the reality of modern policing in a rescission economy...you need to learn to protect yourself till we can get there to help...help not prevent.  Sheriff Clarke states this position well.

The video

Deuteronomy 33:7
And this he said about Judah:“Hear, Lord, the cry of Judah; bring him to his people. With his own hands he defends his cause. Oh, be his help against his foes!”

Mustaches and Morale

Not a good look
 One of our officers is retiring after 25+ years on the job.  He has spent almost his entire career with a "Freddy Mercury" style thick mustache in place above his lip and under his nose.  As a tribute to him all of us at the PD has dedicated the month of January to him and in varying degrees of success (after weeks I have the beginnings of a mustache...the pejorative "porn star" keeps getting bandied about) we have all grown out our stashes.  It is not a good overall look, but it shows we care.

This is just a simple behind the scenes glimpse.

Psalm 126:2

Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.”
