Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. laid it out for Judge Jeanine Pirro in an interview Saturday, and he wasn’t holding back.
Saying he was “too pissed off to be diplomatic” about Friday’s ambush and murder of a uniformed deputy sheriff in Houston, Clarke blamed the White House for the “war on police.”
On Saturday, authorities announced the arrest of Shannon J. Miles, 30, a man with a criminal record, in the shooting death of Harris County Deputy Darren Goforth. Charged with capital murder, Miles could face the death penalty.
“I said last December that war had been declared against the American police officer, led by some high-profile people,” Clarke told Fox News host Jeanine Pirro on “Justice With Judge Jeanine” Saturday.
“One of them coming out of the White House, another one coming out of the United States Department of Justice. And it’s open season right now, there’s no doubt about it.”
Clarke referred to members of the Black Lives Matter movement who chant “No justice, no peace” as “black slime that needs to be eradicated from the American society.”
Pirro observed that “without leadership … people seem to be emboldened by this kind of thing.”
“Right,” Clarke said. “And that’s why I said the president of the United States started this war on police.”
