Fort Wayne, Ind. (WFFT) - Noble County Sheriff Doug Harp told WFFT that he agrees with a Milwaukee County Sheriff's message encouraging citizens to arm themselves for self protection.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke issued a recorded Public Safety Announcement asking residents in his jurisdiction to take their lives into their own hands.
Here's the full transcript of the PSA:
"I'm Sheriff David Clarke and I want to talk to you about something personal: your safety. It's no longer a spectator sport; I need you in the game. But are you ready? With officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option. You can beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back. But are you prepared? Consider taking a certified safety course in handling a firearm so you can defend yourself until we get there. You have a duty to protect yourself and your family."
