Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke sounds off on Hillary snubbing police
Adan Salazar - August 8, 2016
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke didn’t mince words when discussing how he felt about Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton refusing to seek endorsement from the nation’s largest police union, calling the former secretary of state a “straight up cop hater.”
“She has made it clear from the convention that she is all in with the criminal element, she doesn’t care about victims of crime, she’s a straight up cop hater and so she is, like I said, rolling the dice on not having support of law enforcement. The problem for her is that middle America, mainstream America does not share her sentiment in having sympathy for criminals,” Clarke stated.
The outspoken sheriff made the remarks during a Fox & Friends segment Monday, in which he called out the former First Lady for refusing to seek an endorsement from the National Fraternal Order of Police, and for her support of the Black Lives Matter social justice organization, whom Clarke believes should be labeled a hate group.
Speaking with Fox & Friends on Sunday, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani also pointed to Hillary’s police union snub as evidence that she is an anti-police candidate.
“The Democratic Party has become an anti-law enforcement party. And this is the best demonstration of it,” Giuliani said.
“They are in a very large extent responsible for the atmosphere that’s been created in this country,” he stated.
“It comes right from the top, it includes Hillary. You don’t even go talk to and seek the endorsement of one of the major police unions in the country?”
“It’s because they’re embarrassed of uniformed police officers,” Giuliani added.
