Milwaukee Sheriff PSA: we won't be there for you [Purp]

Speaking truth to those who don't want to hear it. He knows when seconds count the police are only minutes away. If you got the vile flash enabled, there's a PodBean with the audio clip.


"With officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option," he adds. "You can beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back. ... Consider taking a certified safety course in handling a firearm so you can defend yourself until we get there."

2 Exactly. The whole seconds matter police are only minutes away thing is not a slam on the police. I don't want to live in a society where the police are everywhere watching everything. It's up to me to protect myself, not anyone else.

8 Time once again for an important reminder.

When you have some doofus liberal talking about how we should all relax and sit back and let the police "do their job of protecting us", point out to them that the courts have held repeatedly in recent years that the police CANNOT BE SUED for a failure to provide the protection in question.

If you can't sue someone over a key issue, and if they can casually disclaim any responsibility for that issue, how smart is it to put them exclusively in charge of that issue?

13 Feinstein's bill would <i>allow</i>any gun manually operated by a bolt, pump, lever or slide action. .

Do you see what is missing? Yep, semi-auto is prohibited, rifle, pistol, shotgun, any caliber from .22 rimfire on up.

...and the consensus wisdom is, this bill won't pass, just like Obamacare won't pass. Which is why the democrats seem to be so intent on passing something that won't pass. Because, obviously, you work harder on a hopeless task, you work harder on legislation that won't pass, than you do with something everyone agrees on. Don't you see the logic in that?

Blast hits key Iranian nuclear site?
US-based website WND says mysterious explosion destroys large part of Fordo nuclear facility. Report uncorroborated by any official Western source
Ynet
Published: 01.26.13, 23:12 / Israel News



WND, an American news website affiliated with the Right, reported Friday that a mysterious explosion has destroyed a significant portion of Iran's Fordo nuclear facility – considered Tehran's most fortified facility.

The website alleged that Hamidreza Zakeri, formerly with the Islamic Republic's Ministry of Intelligence and National Security, confirmed that the facility was hit, but the report has not been corroborated by any Western source.


The website further said that its Iranian source pegged the blast as taking place last Monday at the eve of Israel's general elections.

Tehran believes the blast was the result of sabotage, the report said.

Someone may have quoted this during the week, as I have posted before I have been trying to limit computer usage because it hurts because I have broken or fracture tailbone.

This is from yesterday's Investor's Business Daily editorial, one of them:

Among those 2,100 words, four shockers leapt out at the eyes and ears of many not in the American news media.

"Peace in our time."
In a surprisingly brief section on foreign policy, Obama said, "Peace in our time requires the constant advance of those principles that our common creed describes: tolerance and opportunity, human dignity and justice."
When initially made on Sept. 30, 1938, by British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, those words were destined to become quite possibly the most notoriously naive and dishonored diplomatic statement by a statesman of the modern era.

They compared TFG to Neville Chamberlin.

You know this actually reminds me.
Last night watching the local news they were bemoaning the "Complexity" of Missouri Castle law after some dude stabbed an intruder to death. Strangely they had to go to the next county over to get a DA who said "it was complex."
MO castle law is pretty clear on this issue, you try to break into my house I get to kill you.
The St. Chuck DA was all hand wringing over the fact "imminent threat of harm" parts and claiming it's over broad (none of those apply for an intruder anyway.)
The only thing I can think of is this seemed to happen in one of the...erg...less than reputable parts of town, while I don't doubt that the dude broke in, it's entirely possible that after the own onwer subdued him he went ahead and offed him anyway. But it's strange to go after Castle Law on that one and start hand wringing about it's complexity. (That law is specifically written though to be fairly open, because the prior law, which was only repealed in 2007 was far to strict and people were afraid to use self-defnese.)
For the record, here's the story on the case: http://goo.gl/E33gq

70 If I may make a suggestion for new gun owners , not advice , just a suggestion .
Start learning to hunt .
Keeping gun safety foremost in your mind .
Hours spent afield with your firearm of choice will help familiarize you with it . How to load and unload it , how to manipulate it in a wide variety of environments , from a house to a vehicle to the field . You'll learn(hopefully) how to aim accurately and operate it in pretty high stress situations . Granted , a deer drive or a dove shoot is not a home invasion but the ability to unthinkingly put your firearm into battery and click off or on the safety by feel alone has to pay dividends .
Disclaimer , I've never even pointed a firearm at a human .
Hope I never do .
That said , I know a whole bunch of people (hunters, male and female) that I don't want shooting at me under any situation.
Dead shots , one and all . Added benefits , you'll meet some great people ( and some drunken assholes , too , cut them loose ) and consume some of the finest food that god ever created ..
The military morons will have better tactical suggestions but some game hunting experience can't hurt .

My interviewer told me yesterday, he couldn't see ever a reason to have a handgun in a crowded place because someone else is just as likely to take it away from you.
I calmly explained he was wrong because I'd only draw my weapon if I were about to pull the trigger at a threat. I wouldn't draw it and yell "Stop or I'll shoot" like in the movies, I'd draw it and fire it at the threat. I'd never pick up a hammer and threaten a nail.

91 This is a WI officer talking. Be wary of any praise for that PSA. Is he really advocating for citizen partnership in combating crime? Or is he delivering the next union campaign message, "You taxpayers need to pony up again when we ask for more personnel and pension bennies because, you know, it'd be a shame if we weren't there for you."

Scare tactic? And so soon after voters started reforming other unions in the state? I'd be shocked. Shocked!

Be critical if not cynical. This IS the State apparatus we're talking about.

They still had 10-13 boxes (each) of .243, .270, 30-06 and 30-30, and a few boxes of 12ga bird shot ... and nothing else.

If you're still looking to buy a rifle, one in one of these calibers might make more sense than usual: ammo, and in useful quantities, is still available.

I live in a casino town, and there are usually a couple of armed robberies in the parking lots of each casino every year. The local rag, of course, underreports this news as they get mucho dinero from casino ads and don't want to tap on the aquarium and scare the fish.

With over 3 million visitors per year, that's not a terribly high incidence rate but it does happen. But you can just about guarantee that the victims had one or more these characteristics -- old, female, not alert and looking around. You can't do much about the first two, but that last one is sooo important. Robbers are looking for easy marks. Don't be one.

Because YOU think that? Who made you the arbiter of the TV vs Internet war?

Do you understand that most here don't care but those who do are put off by your rude and crude attitude and your zealous surety of your cause.

Those are always danger signs for me. And I've had a lot of experience.

Because YOU think that? Who made you the arbiter of the Constitution?

Do you understand that most here don't care but those who do are put off by your rude and crude attitude and your zealous surety of your cause.

Those are always danger signs for me. And I've had a lot of experience.

I take that back, they don't need an intervention they need an invitation to STFU AND STFD until they can act polite in mixed company.

Till then your "message" is lost in the white noise of your bad manners and attitude.

188 One of Iran’s official press agencies published photos showing the public amputation of a thief’s fingers on Wednesday. These show a man getting his finger chopped off with a machine resembling a rotary saw.

We contacted many of our Observers in Iran to ask them about this machine. Some of them had heard about it before, but many discovered its existence through these morbid photographs, which were reportedly taken on Thursday. According to the INSA press agency, the man shown getting his finger cut off was charged with robbery and adultery by a court in the southwestern city of Shiraz. He was also accused of being at the head of a criminal organisation. On top of losing one of his fingers, he was sentenced to three years in prison and 99 whip lashes.

Sorry didn't read most comments, but my first reaction was the same as booger's, above - at least the quoted statement is just another "pay more taxes or the children get it" a la the teacher's unions, police version.

Surely the situation varies substantially from place to place, but here' something that's befuddled me for a long time (and I'm too lazy to go look up the explanation, which is probably available at several obscure but good "right wing" think tank sites): how the hell, with the oceans of tax revenue in which almost cities, counties, and states have been swimming for a long time, is there any pressure on budgets, much less the need for furloughs?

I know, I know - simple arithmetic, in the end. And I'm not familiar with Milwaukee's finances (wasn't Walker county executive there for a long time before he took the statehouse?). But even though I get that tax revenues should be down quite a bit in a recession, I still don't get the extent of stress on public finances and personnel situations - unless, that is, the gold-plating is even worse than I imagined. Of course, it would be unthinkable for "public servants" to take pay cuts for, ya know, "the public". Sort of the whole point of both "public" and "service" pretty much no longer being part of the "public service" mindset (sorry, dedicated cops, teachers, and social workers, who exist in your millions - but you like others will rightly only be judged by the worst union slimeball you allow to represent you, no matter how responsible and decent you are).

It probably exists, but I'd love to see a simple bold graphical depiction of, say, CA's total tax revenues, per capita tax burden, per capita public spending, per capita public employee head-count, and average and median public employee compensation (all in adjusted dollars) over the period 1960 - 2010. Fifty years, from the best public services on Earth and balanced budgets and reasonable taxes to, uh, what we see today.

These sort of ratios and comparisons are irrefutable - even though they take some explaining when presented to your average NPR-level dolt utterly lacking in analytical skills or tendencies. And of course half the fun would be the sputtering incomprehension at the fact that Prop 13 is no part of the explanation. You'd be amazed at how many people in eastern states who've never set foot in the Golden one automatically and firmly believe the myth of Prop 13 being the problem. Ya know, "lack of revenues".

So I'm happy the Milwaukee LE types are urging people to arm themselves. But it sounds, based on that quote, like they still should quit LE and do something else - find an occupation where money, not service, is the point. So as to create a better fit between their nature and their profession.

249 @ 221 Secret Squirrel's
A large segment of today's Republican party are ex Democrats. Historically the Democrat party was White Supremacist. When the Democrats changed their game and decided to use non whites for political power, many racist Democrats came into the Republican Party. They did not come over because they believe in limited government and free markets, they were just mad the Democrats were now giving welfare to non whites. They feel it's entitled only for Whites.

The Republicans decided to start demonizing non whites to appeal to this new Republican base. Today's main boogeymen are Mexicans. The hatred and animosity that Republicans display for Mexicans rivals what the German Nazis felt for Jews and Slavs (my people).The Republican base believes in white supremacy and theocracy. They want wealth redistribution for whites and the elimination of inferior races. The Democrats are Marxists/International Socialists. The Republican Party is National Socialist. They are both different forms of the same progressive demon.

On guns Republicans are on the side of angels. This is the one issue that are sticking true to their old freedom loving roots and I back them on this. My family escaped Tito's totalitarianism and gun control was how the Communist maintained their rule.

It was a Republican President Nixon who gave my parents refugee status from Yugoslavia and allowed them to enter. Today's Republicans Party would have told my family to fuck off.

In the 2006, 2008 and 2010 elections, many Republicans used ads showing Mexicans as evil and threatening. I keep hearing Republican complain about illegals on welfare, but they say nothing about the trailer park white trash on welfare. They are OK with wealth redistribution as long as its to Whites.

Posted by: DAve, The Rifleman at January 26, 2013 08:51 PM (XDC0v)

*******

DAve- Wellllll, since you asked- the blog is not for politics. It is a single purpose site. Here's the brief version:
Jack Gordon was my father in law. In 2008 he disappeared without a trace from a remote property in southern CO. On the same day, a neighbor who was a convicted felon living under an assumed name in violation of his parole terms also disappeared. We believe the neighbor killed Jack, but the local Sheriff's office is utterly incompetent and unwilling to bring any pressure to bear on this guy's mother who has been abetting him at evading apprehension. The neighbor was somewhat internet savvy. I started the blog last summer to create an internet meme of sorts, inextricably linking the two names and hopefully drawing the attention of the scumbag and goad him into making a mistake, or even coming after me. I will not give up my guns, and I will be prepared to defend myself in that eventuality, and perhaps justice for Jack Gordon will be done. In the meantime, I wait, and drink, and sometimes come here to amuse myself.

274 I must report this:

Last week, our community college's dean and some other staff were talking about the gun control story. I asked him to please, NEVER put up a "gun-free zone" sign on our campus. He said that would never happen as long as he's our dean.

We're in a state that allows concealed carry on campus. I wonder how that will play out if federal laws change? A couple years ago, we told some pot-growing students that they couldn't bring their plants to botany class because federal law prohibited pot on campus.

344 I am leaving for now. You can back to your echo chamber and bash Mexicans.

Bu there is one issue we need to unite. We need to stand up for our gun rights. As someone whose family escaped Communism, please realize the importance of gun rights.

345 I am White (Serb) myself idiot.

That explains a lot. The fucking Serbs started a freaking world war, and more recently filled a lot of mass graves.

Since you're painting with a broad brush here, I feel I'm entitled to the same latitude slinging horseshit slander, right?

Thank You, PA.

Sorry, Napa, but you confuse anti-ILLEGAL with anti-Mexican, and I guess you also have somehow been mislead to believe that R's are against legal immigrants too, since you keep saying we'd not let your family in.
Again your opinions are, to put it simply, fucking wrong.

You're a self-loathing jerkoff Hector.

If you had married a Pakistani you'd be screaming to behead Jews right now.

349 I'm not too hard on the Serbs. They stopped Islam from marching into Europe 600 years ago.

Dam right we killed Muslims. I see you support the same Islamic scum who attacked us on 9/11. Read who the Serbs were fighting and get back to me. I see not only you hate Mexicans, but you hate Orthodox Slavs and like Muslims. You are a filthy Al-Qaeda supporter.

My Grandmother was Jewish, so try again. I support Israel and appreciated their support of the Bosnian Serbs. I would never marry a filthy Muslim.

I am out now.

353 Okay sure Hector - funny how you personally always have a relative/acquaintance whose existence 'aids' you in an argument.

I'm gonna venture to guess you're just a straight-up troll at this point, just purely making up shit.

Anyway, you'll be banned soon and back again under some dumbass guise.

355 Thanks to liberalism ever since 1965 the U.S. has become a refuge for every fucking sad story in the world. In spit of what everyone thinks, this isn't what made America great, it's just the opposite. What made this country great was a people that shared the same culture that made the Western world so advanced and who also believed in the concept of individualism and liberty.
So here we are getting lectured by some jackass whose ancestry is from the one place in Europe where the people resisted westernism and instead were the most divisive, bigoted and territorial people in the whole fucking continent.

357 "The thing about U.S. Marines," said the Earl, "is that they arrive."

(the best of my memory from P.G. Wodehouse)

Like Marines, the police arrive. They aren't there when trouble breaks out, because if they are there, trouble usually doesn't break out. Trouble waits.

Okay, I didn't read all the comments,so I'm not sure it's been touched on, but I know a little of the local politics involved with this Milwaukee County Sheriff.
The city of Milwaukee has its own police department. The County has the sheriff. They area little bit of an anachronism, in that most of the other cities in Milwaukee county also have their own police departments. However, the Sheriff is an elected position, and sheriff Clarke a good conservative democrat, who is hated by the socially liberal but fiscally conservative County Executive Chris Abele. They don't like each other, and Abele's method of kneecapping Clarke is to cut his funding and diminish his responsibility.
Clarke is not afraid to take his side of an issue to the airwaves, in a blunt and mostly true manner, which is what we have here. But of all the law enforcement chiefs I can think of, this guy deserves support.

361 Memorize:
<ul>

<li>Police have no legal duty to protect individuals.</li>

<li>Police have no legal liability when they fail to protect individuals.</li>
<li>Police have virtually no physical ability to protect individuals.</li>

</ul>

Police don't protect individuals. They draw chalk outlines around individuals who don't protect themselves.

When you're in danger from deadly force RIGHT NOW, you're either going to protect yourself, or you're just not going to get protected at all. Anybody who tells you different is a liar.

One Eyed Jack-
Thanks for the info on the sheriff. I waqs a little intrigued when I first read this so I googled him. Turns out that he is abit of aTea Party hero, and the WI dem machine can't stand him. Nonetheless he was able to beat a "real" democrat in the primary in 2010. After this they'll be going after him even harder in 2014 (not at all placated by the fact that he is absolutely correct).

Posted by: Buzz at January 27, 2013 01:01 PM (3cM9S)

363 At least the good sheriff is telling it like it is.
