Fox News called on Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke to comment on the assassination-style killing of Texas Deputy Darren Goforth. The discussion was little more than a scapegoating of “failed liberal policies” and Barack Obama, for creating a “culture” that allows things like the killing of cops.
Clarke and Kilmeade were eager to smear the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement by stating that it was involved in the killing of Goforth, despite there being no concrete link established between Goforth’s killer, Shannon Miles, and the BLM movement.
“Well, let me start here, first of all, the headline is ‘Black Man Shoots White Defenseless Police Officer,'” said Clarke. “Because I get sick and tired of seeing it the other way around when an officer defends his life. They always point out that it’s a white officer shooting an unarmed black suspect.”
“It’s time now for good law-abiding Americans to rise up like they did around that Chevron station – an outpouring – but it can’t just be symbolic. We now have to counter this slime, this filth coming out of these cop-haters,” Clarke said.
“If there is anything that needs to be straightened out in this country, it is the subculture that has risen out of the underclass in the American ghetto,” said Clarke. “Fix the ghetto and you’ll see a lesser need for assertive police officers, or policing in these areas, and then you’ll see less confrontation. Stop trying to fix the police. Fix the ghetto.”
