How Sheriff Clarke’s Pro-Gun Message Shaped Opinions In Milwaukee

 

 

 

 

 

 

Published on Oct 17, 2014

” In the coming weeks after the Sandy Hook school shooting, the American public was flooded with commentary about gun ownership, but one message in particular stood out: a public service announcement by Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke. It encouraged and inspired many on the pro-gun side — turning Sheriff Clarke into a gun rights hero — but what affect did his message have on his community?

“The Continued Lack Of Accountability At ATF Is Disturbing”

” In January 2013, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel dropped a bombshell report showing ATF Agents who attempted to set up a storefront in the city, ended up damaging the building, owing the landlord money and lost a machine gun on the streets after it was stolen out of a government vehicle.

  But the effort to date has not snared any major dealers or taken down a gang. Instead, it resulted in a string of mistakes and failures, including an ATF military-style machine gun landing on the streets of Milwaukee and the agency having $35,000 in merchandise stolen from its store, a Journal Sentinel investigation has found.

 

 

 

 

 ” When the 10-month operation was shut down after the burglary, agents and Milwaukee police officers who participated in the sting cleared out the store but left behind a sensitive document that listed names, vehicles and phone numbers of undercover agents.

   And the agency remains locked in a battle with the building’s owner, who says he is owed about $15,000 because of utility bills, holes in the walls, broken doors and damage from an overflowing toilet.”

 

 

      This episode ties in with the widespread attempts by ATF to use mentally challenged individuals across the country in efforts to entrap alleged drug dealers and arms traffickers .

 

 

” Despite ATF’s claims these were isolated incidents, they weren’t and now, Senator Grassley and Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa have sent a letter to ATF Director Todd Jones demanding answers about how many times these tactics were used around the country.”

 

Senators Grassley and Issa are demanding answers from Todd Jones , head of ATF .

 

 

” According to the letter, ATF has failed to be forthcoming with information about the cases.

The continued lack of accountability at ATF is disturbing,” the letter states, adding that many of the agents managing these cases have been promoted. “Around the conclusion of Operation Fearless in the fall of 2012, ATF management promoted Bernard Zapor, the Special Agent in Charge during the pendency of Operation Fearless, to ATF headquarters as Deputy Assistant Director of the Office of Field Operations — Central Region.” 

 

More obfuscation and prevarication on the part of the “most open , honest and transparent” administration ever .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ATF Using Mentally Disabled Teens To Run Drug-and-Gun Stings

 

 

 

 

 

” If you thought the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) couldn’t stoop any lower, you’d be wrong. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the agency responsible for setting off the events that led to Waco and were at the center of the Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal are using mentally disabled teenagers to advertise businesses that are actually fronts for ATF sting operations.

  Earlier this year, when the Journal Sentinel reported on an ATF sting operation in Milwaukee involving a “low IQ” informant, authorities wrote it off as an isolated act of rogue agents. The Journal Sentinel documents at least half-a-dozen stings from around the country that use the same “rogue” tactics of creating fake storefronts and using low IQ people to set stings in cities such as Pensacola, Florida, Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Wichita, Kansas.”

 

    How convenient … everything wrong with State actions is attributed to the actions of “a few rogue agents” when in reality we are being oppressed by a rogue government . What sort of moral depravity encourages the “authorities” to enlist the mentally impaired as their stooges ? Fast & Furious was blamed on a few rogue agents as is the IRS/Tea Party scandal , the Secret Service hooker scandal . 

    Every time there is a scandal in the Obama administration it is blamed on “a few rogue agents” . Apparently in this White House the buck stops , oh I don’t know , oh yeah , over there . There is no assumption of responsibility at all in Obamaworld … everything is someone else’s fault . If this is the best kind of leadership and oversight we can expect from Dear Leader and his merry band of Chicago thugs we’d be better off without any president at all . 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Milwaukee Bra Ban Overturned

 

 

 

” Holler House Tavern was decorated with hundreds of bras left by female patrons for nearly half a century, until a Milwaukee, Wisc., city inspector decided that the sartorial decor constituted a fire hazard.

The city agreed to overturn the bra ban, which means Skowronski will get to re-hang the bras that hundreds of women have left there over the years.”

” A GUN CONTROL APOLOGY:

Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. has fired another salvo in his ongoing clash with Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn over guns, law enforcement and public safety.

In a letter to a Republican member of the U.S. Senate, Clarke has issued an apology “on behalf of my constituents” for Flynn’s blunt Capitol Hill testimony last week in support of an assault-weapons ban.

The sheriff accuses Flynn of being “embarrassing” and “rude,” and hostile to gun rights in the letter, sent to South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham, a member of the judiciary committee that heard Flynn’s testimony.

“Please do not see (Flynn’s) arrogance as exemplary of the people of Milwaukee County,” Clarke writes.

If I were the Milwaukee police chief, I’d be keeping my profile low. Too many scandals.

And remember that Chief Flynn is the one who instructed his officers to knock even legal gun-carriers to the ground, just because. Have you noticed that the more politicians support gun control, the more likely they are to be thuggish and corrupt? Which I guess explains Chicago. . . .

If you see Chief Flynn, you can ask him about that. Or you can ask him about his illegal body cavity searches. Or his crime-statistics book-cooking scandal.

Sheriff Clarke: “Calling 911 And Waiting Is No Longer Your Best Option”

 

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke

 

 

MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office released a new public service announcement regarding gun safety on Thursday, January 24th that is getting attention for its bluntness.

In the PSA, Sheriff David Clarke says, “With officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option. You could beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back. But are you prepared?”

He goes on to say, “You have a duty to protect yourself and your family. We’re partners now. Can I count on you?”

 

Common Sense You Would Say …

 

“He is saying we are responsible, in a lot of cases for our own personal safety,” said Schneider.”

 

 

But Not To The Usual Handwringers …

 

 

” Bonavia says Clarke is asking citizens to become vigilantes. ”

 

 

And They Include The Man Who Tried To Steal Scott Walker’s Seat In The Governor’s Mansion …

 

” The office of Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said in a statement: “Apparently Sheriff David Clark (sp) is auditioning for the next Dirty Harry movie.” ”

 

 

To Which Clarke Responded …

 

 

”Several years ago a tire iron-wielding suspect beat Mayor Tom Barrett to within inches of his life.  I would think that he would be a lot more sensitive to people being able to defend themselves in such instances.  A firearm and a plan of defense would have come in handy for him that day.”

 

 

 

 

  Imagine a world where simply pointing out what the law is is regarded as a crime … oh wait , we needn’t imagine it , it’s here now and it’s called Obamaworld . 

 

 

140 ANTI-VOTER FRAUD BILLBOARDS IN OHIO & WIS. TO BE TAKEN DOWN AMID CRIES OF ‘VOTER SUPPRESSION’

 … to Buy Flat-Screen TVs, Segways, Training From Disney

 

 

 

  ” Ever wonder exactly what local law enforcement agencies do with all the money they seize under federal and local asset forfeiture laws? TheMilwaukee Journal Sentinelreports that the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office has used it to buy:

…workout equipment for Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr.’s command staff, customer training for 50 employees through a Disney program and a mounted patrol unit, a county audit released Friday shows.

The tab for the workout gear came to $11,400; the Disney Destinations training cost $24,900; and more than $77,000 went for horse rental, boarding and transport for the sheriff’s mounted patrol. A $43,000 Dodge Ram pickup bought in 2008 to haul the horses was the largest portion of the mounted patrol spending from the fund, the report says.”
