Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke describes some of the comments made by politicians involved in the Ferguson incident as irresponsible and inflammatory. He points specifically to Senator Claire McCaskill, Governor Jay Nixon and Attorney General Eric Holder as key offenders.
He said their comments insinuated that â€œlaw enforcement officers across the United States engage in some nefarious or systematic and cultural attempts to violate peopleâ€™s civil rights.â€
Clarke continued saying, â€œI thought that was a slap in the face to every law enforcement officer in America who puts on, he and she, that put on the badge and the uniform every day to go out and risk their lives in service to their community.â€
He added, â€œI think the Attorney General needs to either further explain his anecdotal references to being racially profiled as if officers across America do this thing and I think he owes every law enforcement officer in America an apology. He doesnâ€™t owe me an apology, but the men and women that I know of, that go out and serve their community, do not have that kind of maliciousness in their hearts and I thought that was a poor display in terms of leadership and adding hot sauce to this volatile situation as well.â€
