Who Has A Better Claim on Police Use of Force? Sheriff David Clarke Has the Answer

The “Black Lives Matter” crowd held an anti-police demonstration in New York City last weekend. Movie director Quentin Tarantino was among the so-called protesters. Milwaukee County’s Sheriff David Clarke called him a “limousine liberal” and a “one-percenter.”

Sheriff Clarke said the protests aren’t based on facts, contrary to President Barack Obama’s claims. “Once you strip away the myths, the lies, the propaganda, all that remains are the facts. Lies put out, over and over again, by the president of the United States. They’re not a substitute for empirical research.”

The sheriff laid down some inconvenient-for-the-narrative facts. In a three-year period (2009-2012), there were 1,491 deadly uses of force by police officers in the U.S. Sixty-one percent of the people involved were white males, and 32 percent were black males. “An almost 2-1 ratio. If there’s anybody that’s got a claim on police use of force, it’s white males.”

He shared a statistic about black-on-black crime and said the president “lacks the courage to look at the black community and tell them to look in the mirror as the source of their problems.” Most of the people police come in contact with are engaged in some sort of criminal behavior.

  1. I’m curious to learn what is Quentin Tarantino’s stance on ending America’s expanding and shameful *National Epidemic of Childhood Abuse and Neglect*, *Poverty*, that for more than two generations has deprived untold numbers of American kids from experiencing and enjoying a fairly happy American kid childhood with Safe Streets to travel and play on.

    *Early Childhood Abuse and Neglect* that often leads depressed, sometimes suicidal *(NY Times May 18, 2015 – Rise in Suicide by Black Children Surprises Researchers)* children to develop into depressed, angry, frustrated, unpredictable, sometimes suicidal teens and adults lacking empathy and compassion for others, though needing to vent their pent up negative emotions, often causing emotional and physical harm to peaceful people…instead of venting their anger, resentment and pain on the immature single moms and/or dads who introduced them to a life of pain and struggle by irresponsibly building a family before acquiring the practical skills, *PATIENCE* and means to successfully raise and nurture a developing young child who matures into a fairly happy responsible teen and adult.

    Does Mr. Tarantino believe as larger numbers of depressed children mature into depressed, frustrated, angry, *sometimes suicidal teens and adults*, that police and peaceful community members legitimate concerns for their safety will elevate as they cope with the anti-social behaviors of potentially suicidal people lacking empathy and compassion for their peaceful neighbors?
