We recently reported a story about a female police officer in Chicago who chose to be beaten up rather than use her gun for fear that she’d be attacked by the media and the liberal mob.
Sheriff David Clarke calls this a recipe for disaster and he’s right.

Sheriff Clarke: ‘Biggest Fear’ is Police Second-Guessing Use of Force
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke says his “biggest fear” is that “the American police officer would become less assertive and they would start to second guess themselves.”
Clarke was reacting to the video recently released from Chicago Police showing a female officer being beaten by a suspect, reportedly because she was afraid of the media scrutiny her family would go through if she fired her weapon.
“It’s my biggest fear coming out of Ferguson,” Clarke told Fox and Friends Friday.
“I said those sorts of things in December of 2014, that sooner or later the American police officer would become less assertive and they would start to second guess themselves.”
“And I’m all across this nation talking to cops now, including here in New York City, I’m recognizable to by most cops – and I tell them – I say, ‘trust your judgment. You have to trust your judgment, I know this is going to be ugly for you during this period of time but the law is on your side,’” Clarke continued.
Watch the video:
The left wants to disarm the police.
Members of the Black Lives Matter movement have even called for the disbanding of police departments.
Why do you think they want that?
