Sheriff David Clarke slams PC crime alerts: Yes, a criminal’s race matters

The University of Minnesota succumbed to student protests that “vague” racial descriptions of suspected criminals be omitted from campus safety alerts.

Political correctness that’s all this is,” Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke told Elisabeth Hasselbeck on “Fox & Friends.”

“This is a horrible decision,” he said.

The students at U of M had protested “generic” descriptions – “white guy in a red shirt” or “black woman with a blue purse” – used by security and law enforcement when they had little else to go on.

Due to student outcry, those broad identifiers will now be forbidden to use on campus because they “may unintentionally reinforce stereotypes of black men and other minorities.”

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that the new university rules will only allow a description of a suspect to be included “when there is sufficient detail that would help identify a specific individual or group.”

Meaning, more descriptive information would be needed to use the term “white or black male” for instance, even if the suspect in the case was clearly identified as such.

Clarke explained that the new policy makes catching criminals more difficult. He emphasized that the more information the public and law enforcement have about a suspected criminal, the safer they are.

“More information is always better than less information,” he said.

“We’re already trying to find a needle in a haystack when we’re looking for suspects. What a decision like this does is add more hay and makes it more difficult for us to get a perpetrator in custody and prevent another student from being victimized.”

Clarke cut straight to the root of the problem and said too many colleges and universities have become little more than “laboratories for liberal indoctrination centers.”

He also questioned the U of M president’s professional qualifications and offered one last piece of advice about the college that resides in his neighboring state.

“If I were a parent looking for a university to send my child to, I would scratch the University of Minnesota off the list, because apparently campus safety is not a priority,” Clarke said.

      Because ‘Jungle’ is now politically incorrect, how about ‘Rainforest Rabbit?’

    So if the criminal is a thin white male, the police now have to check all races, all sexes and all body types?

    1. P. Ara Noid says:

      And all ages. Can’t discriminate by age, either. Infants in diapers and centenarians are also suspects…

    I think they want the criminal to escape.

    Maybe a NY shutdown on arrests is in order and let the University handle their own issues bet parents footing the bill speak louder than students throwing temper tantrums.
