Amid Milwaukee unrest, a controversial black sheriff clashes with the city’s white police chief

As riots raged in Milwaukee, the county sheriff took to Twitter.

“Black LIES matter,” David Clarke wrote to his quarter-million followers, ridiculing the Black Lives Matter movement.

The protesters, he tweeted later, were part of a “culturally dysfunctional underclass” and were responding to “inane provocation.”

His taunts stood in sharp contrast to the message being sent out by the Milwaukee police chief. Speaking on local television, Edward Flynn laid out the facts of the shooting that had ignited the unrest, then said he was heading to a meeting with local black pastors to plead for their help.

It was “very important that those people that are in the neighborhood are constantly giving a message of peace and civility,” Flynn said. “Nothing is being accomplished through acts of violence.”

    This is O’s legacy. The uneducated refugees he has flooded us with is his legacy. The illegals is his legacy. He sits in his WH or parties on our money to the hilt, look at Michelle’s staff and what they are paid, they have taken us for fools and they are liars and worthless people who should never have set foot in the “People’s House”.

    O and Soros are having a blast and blasting our country down the drain.

    read the entire LA Times article and found an interesting racist comment by Chief Flynn. Kept refering to “those people” when talking about the black residents in the neighborhood. During my time as a police officer and during many training sessions about race and racism one of the quickest ways to get a POC argument going was to use the term “those people”. Was quickly followed by a loud question of “what do you mean by those people? Blacks, how racist, you’re a racist”

    Police chief is responding to the sane black community not the BLM imports. When the dirt settles the real black community will still be there. I appreciate his approach but that is assuming the existing community did not support this rioting, etc. We shall see. In Ferguson the existing community was all in for the looting, rioting, etc.. No saving them if they are part of the underclass the sheriff is refering to.

      No reasoning with the ‘Black LIES Matter’ anarchists either, if they are part of the underclass the sheriff is referring to.

      the problem with policing in a black community is the community leaders and many members want the social justice police, practicing political correctness, to do the job.
