Wis. Sheriff Urges Citizens to Defend Themselves
Posted Friday, January 25, 2013 --- 2:32 p.m.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A Wisconsin sheriff is urging citizens to learn to handle firearms -- so they can defend themselves until authorities arrive.

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr., released the radio ad this week, telling residents that when it comes to personal safety: "I need you in the game."

In the ad, Clarke says that because of layoffs and furloughs, calling 911 is no longer the best option. He says citizens can either beg for mercy from a criminal, hide or "fight back."

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the spot was aired at least once, and posted on the department's website Friday.

Roy Felber, president of the Milwaukee Deputy Sheriffs' Association, says the ad sounds like a call to vigilantism.

A message left for Clarke was not immediately returned.
