    What ever the reasons Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke resigned his position I thank him for his years of service as a true and professional law enforcement official. I can only hope that when he resolves the private issues before him he may return once again to some form
    of law enforcement or run for public office. Unfortunately in these times if any one wants to find the dirt on anybody they can with no problem and thus lawmen become the #1 targets for all kinds of complaints and often falsehoods.
