Honestly, I’m quite impressed this sheriff had the huevos to say it publicly. The only shame here should be Roy Felber’s. He’s the president of the Milwaukee Deputy Sheriff’s Association and says it sounds like vigilantism. So it seems Roy is the kind of cop we all hate…The guy who says, be a good victim until I get there to save you. Just relax and try to enjoy whatever befalls you until the police get around to answering your call.
Folks, the sheriff made the right call. He recognizes that between budget cuts and that cold hard one known as reality, neither he nor his deputies can be everywhere at all times. If someone is trying to do you harm right now, that problem is yours to solve until the police get there and even then, the police may not be able to help you. But, most people don’t know this and will have to learn this lesson the hard way. Unfortunately, most don’t survive the class and amazingly, some come out of it having failed to learn the lesson!
