Video: Police say when it comes to protecting yourself, ‘you’re on your own’
When seconds count, police nationwide tell Project Veritas, “Sometimes we can’t be anywhere at all because everybody’s tied up.”
In January, James O’Keefe exposed the hypocrisy of media gun-grabbers with undercover footage of his Project Veritas team posing as “Citizens Against Senseless Violence.” In a new investigation, James O’Keefe’s team visited police stations and asked, “What do I do between the time somebody breaks down the door and the time police show up?”
Answer: “You’re on your own.”
Indeed, police can’t teleport to the scene of every home invasion and sexual assault.

So how can citizens protect themselves?
Anti-gun zealots would leave citizens defenseless. Colorado State Rep. Joe Salazar thinks rape whistles and call boxes are just peachy when “you’re on your own.” The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs recommends release of bodily fluids on demand.
Project Veritas caught police on camera recommending everything from strategically trimmed shrubbery to locking your doors and hoping for the best. Our favorite suggestion? “Go get some bleach. Go get ammonia.”
But whatever you do, don’t follow Joe Biden’s advice about shotguns unless you’re curious what the inside of a jail cell looks like.

And anyway, as one officer said, “A rifle and shotgun is actually for luxury.”
Watch all the way to the end to see Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke respond to the video.
