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!”

Hi there,
I truly enjoyed watching Sheriff Clarke's PSA. As a retired deputy sheriff, I too encourage people to be prepared and not just wait for law enforcement to arrive. Do you ever teach or assist in teaching self defense or concealed carry classes?
I'm glad to have found another cop riding with Christ in the squad! I pray for a safe shift for you and your department

Thanks Juli, I have not had the privilege to instruct the self defense/tactical classes since my career path has been more in gangs and drugs...and as for concealed carry we don't have that yet here...we are the last one.
I am always pleased when I discover another believer in law enforcement.
Thanks for your prayers, you also have mine.
