  • Who is Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke

Clarke, announced on Wednesday that he will be joining the Department of Homeland Security as assistant secretary, multiple outlets reported. Clarke said he will be an assistant secretary at DHS' Office of Partnership and Engagement, which coordinates outreach to state, local and tribal officials and law enforcement.

Clarke, a vocal supporter of President Trump, is now being sued by the family of a man who died of dehydration after 10 days in solitary confinement in a Milwaukee jail.

Clarke wasn't among the seven staffers on the jury's list because prosecutors say he wasn't directly involved in the events leading up Thomas' death. Voces' statement reads: "Clarke is unfit for any office and should face criminal charges for the deaths and abuses at the jail".

"I have almost 1,000 inmates". I'll be developing who I have interplay with.

When a Wisconsin sheriff leaves office midway through his or her term, the governor typically appoints a successor who would fill out the rest of the term and potentially run for election at the end of it, he said. Another lawsuit alleges women were shackled during childbirth. Although Clarke seemed comfortable making the announcement publicly, the Homeland Security Twitter account responded by saying "Sr. positions are announced when made official by the Sec".

Clarke frequently appears on conservative talk shows and Fox News to state his views on crime in the United States, and doesn't shy away from controversial statements about crime and African Americans. 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".

He told Lemon he had predicted that police officers would be targeted. "It is not clear to us how she can complain about being identified as "lesbian" when she has said herself many times that she is proud to be one", he told the Journal Sentinel.

He also spoke at the Republican National Convention the same day as Patricia Smith, a mother whose son died in Benghazi.

"I think Justice Scalia points that out, that it was a very contorted view of the Fourteenth Amendment", he said of the ruling, from which Scalia dissented.

Known for his criticisms of Black Lives Matter, Clarke suggested at a House Judiciary Committee meeting on policing that the root of the problems facing black communities is "black underclass subculture behavior", rather than issues related to police behavior. WUWM's Ann-Elise Henzl reports on Clarke's rhetoric and actions, and how they caught the attention of both admirers and critics.

In October 2015, he tweeted, "Before long, Black Lies Matter will join forces with ISIS to being [sic] down our legal constituted republic. You heard it here first".
