Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke appeared on Fox News to bad-mouth the Black Lives Matter movement and, more surprisingly, claim that police brutality no longer exists. Apparently he hasn’t looked out the window in a while.

The conversation started when host Brian Kilmeade said that BLM protests were a “slap in the face” to NYPD officers. Clarke responded.

“There is no police brutality in America. We ended that back in the ’60s. So, I don’t know where they’re coming from,” said Clarke. “The president of the United States knows better, he’s playing the race game, he’s playing race politics. He has been a nightmare and I cannot wait until January 2017 so that America’s nightmare can be over.”

“Show me the data, show me the research that demonstrates that supports that lie that law enforcement officers use an inordinate amount of force against black people!” Clarke added. “Black people use an inordinate amount of force against themselves and each other in the American ghetto.”

“There are no valid arguments! There is no police brutality in the United States!”

The only example of evidence here is Sheriff Clarke.
