Sheriff Clarke joined Judge Jeanine Pirro last night on Justice with Judge Jeanine.

I said last December...

    HOUSTON -- Across southeast Texas especially in Harris County, many woke up today asking the big question. What led up to the deadly shooting of Deputy Darren Goforth? The violent crime left Goforth's loved ones, law enforcement, and ordinary citizens in tears.

Shouting "Jobs, not jails!" and "More police is not the answer!," the protesters accused the mayor...

"Our system of justice absolutely requires a law enforcement presence to protect our communities, so at any point where the rhetoric ramps up to the point where calculated cold-blooded assassination of police officers happen(s). This rhetoric has gotten out of control," Hickman said. "We've heard...
