I like David Clarke because he doesn’t mince any words, you don’t have to think too hard to understand exactly what he’s saying. We need more people in public life like Sheriff Clarke.
He held a press conference to address the violence that broke out in Milwaukee following the police shooting of unarmed thug. He defended his request to have the National Guard deployed in Milwaukee, and said he wouldn’t stand for violence and rioting in his city. Sheriff Clarke is determined that Milwaukee not become Baltimore or Ferguson.
“People have to find a more socially acceptable way to deal with their frustration, their anger, and resentment. We cannot have the social upheaval – the chaos that we saw [the other] night that frightens good, law-abiding people in those neighborhoods.”
Clarke mince no words about the punk that was killed by a police officer. He was a 23-year-old thug who had a lengthy arrest record. He was accused in a shooting last year and charged with recklessly endangering safety, and that’s a felony. He was subsequently accused of pressuring the victim to recant statements that identified him as the gunman and he was charged with intimidating a witness.
The thug pleaded guilty in 2014 to carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and he was charged with driving without a license or insurance, speeding, and driving with open intoxicants in the car earlier this year.
A bigger question that hasn’t been addressed, is why was this punk not jail?
Sheriff Clarke went on to a “nail meet hammer” moment in his press conference when he said, “we have a growth of the underclass here in Milwaukee. And we saw some of their behaviors on display. Fortunately, the loss of life of innocent civilians and law enforcement personnel did not happen. I think only by the grace of God, with bullets flying all over the place.”
It’s worthwhile to note that the police never fired a shot during the riots. The gun fire all came from neighborhood thugs who were hunting down white people.
Here’s a tweet from Sheriff Clarke that sums up the situation in the inner cities run by Democrats.
It’s also further proof, as if we needed it, that #BlackLivesMatter doesn’t give a damn about black lives.
