Sheriff Clarke criticizes Mayor Barrett's plan for increased police patrols
MILWAUKEE - In response to another violent weekend in Milwaukee, Mayor Tom Barrett said there will be increased police patrols in August.
Since Thursday, a dozen people have been shot, three of them fatally.
"And so what we're going to do this year, there's going to be a lot of overtime quite honestly," Barret said. "And the police are going to be targeting the most areas where they see the most activity so we don't have a repeat of what we see last August."
Sheriff David Clarke held a news conference today blasting the mayor, wondering what happened to the increased patrols from June.
