Sheriff Clarke SLAMS Hillary; ‘willing to prostitute herself to secure black vote’


clark clintonSheriff David Clarke slammed Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton Monday for politicizing the death of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old boy who was shot dead by a Cleveland police officer.

Rice was holding a toy pellet gun when he was shot by officer Timothy Loehmann at a playground in November 2014. Two separate reports released this week say the shooting was reasonable, thus seeming to clear the officer, according to Fox News.

Hillary Clinton, apparently ignoring the legal information in this case, seemed to be conclusively siding against the police, despite the new reports.

Clinton met with Black Lives Matter activists last week and on Friday, tweeted that “racism is America’s original sin.”

Clinton also sent out a message of support to Rice’s loved ones saying, “Too many black families are mourning the loss of a child.”

Sheriff Clarke accused Clinton of using the tragedy for political gain in his appearance on “The Kelly File.”

“Mrs. Bill Clinton is showing that she is willing to prostitute herself to secure the black vote,” Clarke argued.

“That sort of pandering is unbecoming of somebody who wants to become the next president of the United States. She’s well aware as an attorney of the objective reasonableness standard….. that officers have to make split second decisions on how much force and when to use force and you can’t use 20/20 hind sight.”

Democratic strategist Mark Hannah, also a guest on the show, said that he didn’t think Clarke would disagree with Clinton’s assertion that there is still some systemic, residual racism in the U.S.

“I would disagree wholeheartedly. Don’t put words in my mouth,” Clarke shot back. ”

“There is no data or research to suggest that,” Clarke said. “Show me the data that suggests that law enforcement officers use an inordinate amount of force against young black males in the United States.”

“Once you strip away the emotion…the rhetoric,” Clarke said,  “the facts and circumstances remain. “It is  the reasonable officer standard and there’s no doubt in my mind that these officers will be cleared of any criminal wrongdoing. This is a tragic situation, no doubt.”
