Sheriff calls because 911 no longer best option

MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Junior says calling 911 and waiting for help to arrive isn’t always the best option.

Clarke’s voice is on a radio ad calling for county residents to defend themselves, saying they should learn to use firearms so they can defend themselves until deputies arrive.

He says budget cuts have slowed response times.

The president of the Milwaukee Deputy Sheriffs’ Association says the ad sounds like a call to vigilante action.
