By Riley J. Hood-CPoW State Chairman-January 30th, 2013
The Constitution Party of Wisconsin commends Sheriff Clarke for his PSA’s, in asking the citizens of Milwaukee County to take responsibility for their safety. This State Chairman has heard the Sheriff being equated with Dirty Harry, by Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.
If Dirty Harry, the rogue cop movie character were to put out a PSA, it would go something like this, “Did I fire five rounds or six, the question you have to ask yourself is, ‘Do I feel lucky,’ well; do ya punk?” Or maybe, “Go ahead, make my day.” While such brashness may appeal to youthful enthusiasm, the Hollywood concept of law enforcement officers disregarding the rights of the citizenry is not the style of law enforcement a mature thinking adult would want to see here in Milwaukee County, or anywhere else in America.
Sheriff Clarke’s PSA’s were not trampling the rights of the people he serves his PSA’s were in accordance with the rights of the people. Sheriff Clarke wasn’t advocating breaking any law, he was reaffirming duties that far too many citizens have handed over to government. CPoW reiterates; Sherriff Clarke is working with the Citizens of Milwaukee County, as opposed to County Executive Abele, Milwaukee Mayor Barrett, and Milwaukee Police Chief Flynn, who insist on working against the Citizen’s of Milwaukee County.
