Even for Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr., this was over the top.
Over the past year, Clarke has become a regular on Fox News with his generally unwavering support of police officers often while using inflammatory, Ann Coulter-style rhetoric.
But Clarke outdid himself this week with his unqualified assertion on “Fox & Friends” that police racism and brutality were relics of the past.
“First off, there is no police brutality in America. We ended that back in the ’60s,” Clarke told co-host Brian Kilmeade earlier this week. He continued, “There’s a new Harvard study out that shows that there is no racism in the hearts of police officers. They go about their daily duty, if you will, to keep communities safe.”
