Sheriff David Clarke Will Accept DHS Job in Washington

19 Mai 2017

It had been rumored that Clarke had been in the running for several appointments within the Trump administration.

While his statement could be seen as a confirmation of the fact that he has a job at Homeland Security, that is not the case.

Sr. positions are announced when made official by the Sec.

Milwaukee County Sheriff Clarke says he will be working in the Office of Partnership and Engagement as a liaison to the state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies.

In the election previous year when African-Americans largely opposed Trump, Clarke, who sometimes parades down the street on horseback, courted strong criticism from fellow blacks nationally for his support for the Republican. One of the few African-Americans to speak a year ago at the convention, Clarke called Black Lives Matter protests "anarchy".

The bigger problem? Clarke's definition of terrorism is extraordinarily broad; he has labeled the Black Lives Matter movement a terror organization.

"[The Black Lives Matter movement] will join forces with [the Islamic State] to bring down our legal constituted republic. You heard it here first".

But instead of holding himself accountable for the lack of oversight in his prison, Clarke has spent a significant part of the past few years building his media persona. The delegation reportedly met with Dmitry Rogozin, a far-right official who was under United States sanctions.

Before making an appointment, Walker asks for applicants and then goes through a vetting process over a period of weeks, Evenson said. A female former inmate also recently filed suit against Clarke and his jail alleging that the negligence of jail officials resulted in her late-pregnancy miscarriage. "We expect District Attorney John Chisholm to also hold everyone who was responsible for any inhumane treatment and deaths of any inmates accountable including Sheriff Clarke". After the incident was ruled a homicide-"profound dehydration"-Clarke allegedly responded by calling the chief medical examiner and vowing to have his license revoked".

Since the inauguration, Clarke has drawn protests in Milwaukee for taking steps to allow corrections officers to conduct immigration enforcement in his jails.

The hiring hasn't officially been announced or confirmed by DHS. While it would be wrong to call him a self-hating, shucking-and-jiving sellout-so we won't-Clarke believes that he is a living testament that white people are no longer racist but that young black males have "no care whatsoever for their fellow man". If he chooses to fill the role via appointment, Governor Walker should leave politics out of the equation and appoint a qualified individual who is devoted to the safety of Milwaukee County and takes the role of operating a jail seriously.

California Sen. Kamala Harris had a similar reaction.
