On “Fox & Friends” Monday morning, co-host Brian Kilmeade welcomed in Fox News’ unofficial police brutality correspondent, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, to discuss the anti-police brutality protests held in New York City over the weekend and Clarke didn’t disappoint, claiming “there is no police brutality in America — we ended that in the ’60s.”
“The president of the United States knows better, he’s playing the race game, he’s playing race politics,” Clarke said. “Shame on him, he’s been very divisive for this country.”
Earlier in the interview, Clarke even advocated that police shouldn’t protect the protesters, and allow them to “clash’ with local businesses and members of the community.
“Then,” Clarke added, “the police can show up and arrest these sub-human creeps for creating a disturbance.”
Former Det. Wheeler seemed unimpressed with this line of thought, and took pains to note the professionalism of the NYPD in policing a protest in which they were themselves the target. He also noted that he believes the #BlackLivesMatter movement “actually matters, what they’re protesting is valid — it’s just the way that they’re going about doing it is completely wrong.”
“It’s not valid,” Clarke replied. “You’re contributing to the problem. Show me the research that demonstrates that lie that law enforcement officers use an inordinate amount of force against black people. Black people use an inordinate amount of force against themselves.”
