Sheriff David Clarke (H/T Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel)The Black Sheriff of Wisconsin’s Milwaukee County has just done a Stix: delivered a highly articulate and incisive denunciation of the judicial pogrom now underway in Baltimore.Clarke: Freddie Gray Charges ‘Duke Lacrosse Case All Over Again’ by Ian Hanchett Breitbart.com 1 May 2015
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke (D) declared the charges brought against six police officers in the death of Freddie Gray “George Zimmerman and the Duke Lacrosse case all over again” and said “these cops are political prisoners,” offered up as human sacrifices, thrown like red meat to an angry mob” on Friday’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on the Fox News Channel.Clarke said of the charges, “it’s a miscarriage of justice. This neophyte prosecutor stood up there and made a political statement, Neil, and I say that because she’s chanting or voicing some of the chants from this angry mob. Her job is to tune that out. She said, I hear the voices. She’s not supposed to hear anything as she reviews this case that is not consistent with the rule of law and our system of justice….A prosecutor who is thorough needs several days to sift through hundreds of pages of reports. They usually want to interview some of the witnesses themselves, in person, and they have to sift through all of the evidence, piece by piece, and they have to wait for some of the forensics evidence to conclude, to come back and that’s why I say on a minimum, three to four days. She just got this case yesterday. This is political activism.Clarke speaking as a policeman concluded
I see a pattern, at least demands from an angry mob, that we be offered up as human sacrifices. We don’t do that in our system of justice in the United States just to please an angry mob… These cops are political prisoners.Guess Clarke will not be getting the Democratic nomination for any statewide race. It is interesting to see he remembers the Duke Lacrosse case, now largely down the Memory Hole.
