Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke appeared on The Kelly File earlier this week to offer his perspective on some of the DNC speakers.
Sen. Cory Booker gave one of the more passionate speeches of the night.
“He talked all around a big problem for the Democrats this fall and that is their flawed candidate, Mrs. Bill Clinton, who should have been under criminal indictment. She’s a confirmed liar. She left people to die in Benghazi. All that kind stuff that he acted like it wasn’t there. But that stuff matters to the American people,” said Sheriff Clarke, referring to Booker’s speech.
Sheriff Clarke went on to say, “this DNC seems to be about embracing criminality and criminal behavior, trying to mainstream criminal behavior, hold these individuals up as if they’re martyrs and symbols of the new civil rights movement.”
“Well, I think they all — if you look at a common denominator among most of those there, they were resisting arrest,” Clarke added. “Eric Garner was resisting arrest. Freddie Gray was resisting arrest. Michael Brown attacked a law enforcement officer and tried to disarm him. Another one, a guy from Milwaukee, Hamilton, was beating a Milwaukee police officer with his night stick when the officer had no other choice but to use deadly force to save his own life.
Look, moms are going to do what moms do. Moms love their kids no matter what. We all get that. here’s the question I have, Megyn, and I keep asking. Where are the dads? When there are no fathers around to shape the behavior of young boys growing up, they grow up to be unmanageable misfits that the police then have to deal with aggressively.”
