One of America’s most popular Sheriff’s (especially among conservatives) is Milwaukee County’s Sheriff, David Clarke. Clarke has been an outspoken proponent of citizen’s gun rights as well as an opponent of Barack Obama’s welfare state political policies. The Sheriff has also taken it upon himself to battle the Democrat’s perspective on race relations in America, often arguing that it is the Democrats and their policies that are truly making things more difficult for minority Americans.
Well, the Sheriff is in the news again – this time for some things he said while on Fox News Live with Neil Cavuto.
The discussion centered on the recent events in Baltimore, which was when Cavuto asked Sheriff Clarke what he thought about the charges being brought by Baltimore’s chief prosecutor Marilyn Mosby. To which Clarke replied:
It’s a miscarriage of justice. This neophyte prosecutor stood up there and made a political statement, Neil, and I say that because she’s chanting or voicing some of the chants from this angry mob. Her job is to tune that out. She said, I hear the voices. She’s not supposed to hear anything as she reviews this case that is not consistent with the rule of law and our system of justice.
Look, I’m an experienced and a veteran homicide detective. I’ve had — I’ve participated in charging conferences. There is no way I have ever gotten a criminal charge within 24 hours after taking over all the reports and evidence to a prosecutor. A prosecutor who is thorough needs several days to sift through hundreds of pages of reports. They usually want to interview some of the witnesses themselves, in person, and they have to sift through all of the evidence, piece by piece, and they have to wait for some of the forensics evidence to conclude, to come back and that’s why I say on a minimum, three to four days.
She just got this case yesterday. This is political activism. She’ll never prove this beyond a reasonable doubt, and I’m not going to silently stand by and watch my brother officers, offered up as human sacrifices, thrown like red meat to an angry mob, just to appease this angry mob.
