WI Sheriff: 'Now It's The Crook Who Has To Wonder What You Might Do' Public Service Announcement on personal safety, released by Sheriff David Clarke of Milwaukee County on Mar. 1, 2013 This is Sheriff David Clarke. Violent crime went up nearly 10% in Milwaukee. Are you the next victim? You don't have to be! But that's your call. Armed criminals are being put back on the street by a soft-on-crime court system even before the ink dries on police reports. Are you prepared to handle a life or death threat? Wisconsin's Personal Protection Act now gives you the same advantage that I have. Now it's the crook who has to wonder what you might do. It can be a great equalizer... but you always have to think survival... Remember, it's you and me now.
