Sheriff Clarke Blasts De Blasio's 'Irresponsible Rhetoric'
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke was on “The Kelly File” tonight, where he slammed New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s “irresponsible rhetoric” on the Eric Garner case.
“Slavery left a stain on the soul of this nation […] but that wound is starting to heal and it’s been healing for a long time, but now we have a segment of people who are picking at that scar, hoping to reopen it and take us back to a time that simply doesn’t exist today," Clarke said.
De Blasio said that he worries about the safety of his biracial son and suggested that he has to be careful with law enforcement.
But Clarke said that, fortunately, de Blasio's son will grow up with a male role model. Clarke said there is a large segment of black males growing up without father figures, and they struggle with authority.
“What we need to do is figure out how to guide these young men […] and teach them to deal with authority.”
