Being a law enforcement officer is becoming increasingly dangerous as violent protests are blamed on members of the thin blue line.

Making matters worse, many in the mainstream media and several political leaders have put targets on the backs of those who wear a badge and fanned the flames of hatred toward law enforcement nationwide.

But Milwaukee County, Wisconsin Sheriff David Clarke, Jr.—a 38-year career cop—says they can’t back down. He blames the Black Lives Matter movement for fueling the flames of anger toward law enforcement. And states that the one group that truly cares about the lives of black people are American police officers.
