Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke: Eric Holder Needs to Apologize to Cops
National Review ^ | 22 Aug 14 | Andrew Johnson

Posted on 08/23/2014 6:23:42 PM PDT by SkyPilot

Attorney general Eric Holder and Missouri Democratic leaders need to apologize to the law-enforcement community for impugning officers’ motives in light of the unrest in Ferguson, Mo., according to one prominent county sheriff.

Milwaukee County sheriff David Clarke, who gained notoriety last year for encouraging gun ownership within his Wisconsin community, said Holder, Governor Jay Nixon, and Senator Claire McCaskill made the situation in Ferguson worse with their “irresponsible, inflammatory” comments about the city’s police force and its supposed problem with race relations. Clarke argued on Fox News on Friday that the trio was “insinuating that our law-enforcement officers across the United States engage in some nefarious or systematic and cultural attempts to violate people’s civil rights.”

“I thought that was a slap in the face to every law-enforcement officer in America who puts on the badge and the uniform everyday to go out and risk their lives in service to their community,” he said.

Clarke specifically called on Holder to either further explain himself or apologize to law enforcement for “adding hot sauce to this volatile situation.”

“He doesn’t owe me an apology, but the men and women I know of do not have that kind of maliciousness in their hearts and I thought that that was a poor display in terms of leadership,”

There has not been one thing done by this administration which has not managed to piss off both or all parties involved in a matter.

It's amazing! Even kids eating their lunch!

Chief Craig in Detroit shamed the white mayor into speaking on the Steve Utash beating and publicly noted the absence of comments from Obama.

David Clarke (Milwaukee Sheriff) takes on Eric Holder.

Freep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.

Pro 2nd Amendment Sheriff Clarke just won re-election as Milwaukee Cunty Sheriff, despite tons of money poured in here from NY’s Michael Bleemberg.

I would hope that more good cops would speak out.
Holder should be shamed into resigning.

Attorney General of the United States told the Attorney Generals of all the individual states that they only need to uphold the laws that they feel like upholding.

Gotta say that Holder is consistent.

The feeling this administration has for law enforcement came out in 2009. Stupid cops. Nothing has changed.

Two members of the real Mod Squad.
I like seeing Sheriff Clarke in that Cowboy Hat, but if he thinks Eric Holder is going to apologize, and to a white man? Just don’t hold your breath, Sheriff. I’d hate for you to run out of oxygen or something.

When I see Officer Clark and Officer Davis, I don’t see black men, I see Americans, patriots who believe in what they do, not some punk ass Street Rat that got lucky and is employed by the gubmint.

Okay, guys. Remember this when martial law is declared and you’re told to start rounding up citizens.

Sheriff Clarke is a true patriot and gives the liberals nightmares with his no nonsense reality based sense of the world, as it is, not as the far left imagine it to be.

A quote from Sherif Clarke

“You can beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back; but are you prepared? Consider taking a certified safety course in handling a firearm so you can defend yourself until we get there. You have a duty to protect yourself and your family. We’re partners now. Can I count on you?”

True, but there we'd have to live in fear Obama would appoint Al 'burn 'em down' Sharpton to the post.
