In the wake of violence erupting at recent Donald Trump events, two law enforcement conservatives are looking for answers.

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio weighed in on the events at last week’s San Jose rally when rioters attacked Trump supporters as they left the event.

“I’m a little concerned about what’s going on now,” Arpaio said on Fox News’ “Hannity” on Monday. “I think it’s going to get worse.”

Clarke blasted the Justice Department for its lack of action after the attacks by anti-Trump thugs.

“What I’m ticked off about right now is why Attorney General Loretta Lynch has not dispatched the FBI and lawyers from the civil rights division to investigate and prosecute and identify people,” Clarke said.

Calling the attacks a “civil rights violation,” Clarke said the Trump supporters were “constitutionally protected” in attending the rally. He called the incident “premeditated, organized violence,” and said the San Jose Mayor’s statement on the riot was “ridiculous.”

Mayor Sam Liccardo, a supporter of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, blamed Trump for the violence that erupted in San Jose, a sanctuary city and the police chief made excuses for not being more aggressive in protecting attendees.

“It appears to me,” Clarke concluded,  “that the United States Department of Justice doesn’t care what’s happening because these people are white and they’re Trump supporters.”
