Kenosha County Sheriff Says ‘People Walking Around with Guns’ Aren’t Helping Police: ‘They Create Confrontation’

‘Part of the problem with this group is they create confrontation’


BETH: “And I go back to social media. One of the invitations looked like a party invitation, something you would get from your brother to come and see your niece’s graduation or her birthday. ‘Come, wear your black outfits, wear a black mask, bring your backpacks.’ Filled with Molotov cocktails, rocks, and whatever else they may have in those backpacks. So, that was the invitation that went out, and I think there's something going on tonight, I'm not exactly sure what it was. But I go back to, I think some people are thinking that I should deputize, we should have these people out there with guns under my authority. What a scary, scary thought that would be in my world. And part of the problem with this group is they create confrontation. People walking around with guns. If I walk around with in uniform with a gun, all of you probably wouldn’t be too intimidated by it because you’re used to officers having guns. But if I put out my wife with an AR-15 or my brother with a shotgun or whatever it would be, walking through the streets, you guys would wonder what the heck is going on. That doesn’t help us.”
