Sheriff Clarke: All Cop Killers Should Get the Death Penalty
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke says that every murder of a law enforcement officer should be classified as a capital crime punishable by death.
Sheriff Clarke appeared on "Fox & Friends" this morning to react to a shooting on Wednesday that left one Georgia officer dead and another in critical condition.

"The senseless slaughter of America’s finest continues. My heart and prayers go out to the good people in the state of Georgia," Sheriff Clarke said. "It rips my heart out every time I hear. When a law enforcement officer is killed in the line of duty, a bit of every law enforcement officer in America dies with them."
Sheriff Clarke argued that every cop killer should receive the death penalty, even in states that don't have capital punishment.
"Then the federal government - the federal court system - should enact a death penalty for these cases, and they should go through the federal system," he said. "And upon conviction they should be put to death."
