The great Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, one of the highest-profile members of law enforcement to emerge as a vocal supporter of President Trump has resigned from his position according to a statement he released on Thursday.

Clarke, who is in his fourth term, submitted a resignation letter to Milwaukee County Clerk George Christenson on Thursday afternoon. His resignation takes effect at midnight.

No reason for the resignation was provided.

Clarke issued a “retirement statement” to local media hours after his resignation was announced. “After almost forty years serving the great people of Milwaukee County, I have chosen to retire to pursue other opportunities,” Clarke wrote. “I will have news about my next steps in the very near future.”

Fox News reports that back in June, Clarke announced that he had rescinded his acceptance of a Homeland Security post. That followed an initial acceptance of a job as assistant secretary in DHS’s Office of Public Engagement. Clarke was supposed to serve as a liaison between DHS and state and local law enforcement.

Clarke, a tough-on-crime conservative Democrat, had built a following among conservatives with his provocative social media presence and for his support of President Donald Trump during his 2016 campaign. He also spoke at the Republican National Convention last summer.

The Journal Sentinel has more:

The son of a Korean war veteran, Clarke — a lifelong Milwaukee resident — has been in law enforcement through most of his adult life. He joined the Milwaukee Police Department in 1978, serving as a patrolman for 11 years and rising to captain in 1996.

He was catapulted into the job of Milwaukee County sheriff after the resignation of Lev Baldwin. Ten people applied for the opening, and then-Gov. Scott McCallum, a Republican, appointed Clarke in March 2002.

At the outset of his tenure, Clarke was hailed as a fresh face who could bring new ideas and energy to the department. He earned support from conservatives and liberals, Republicans and Democrats.

As AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS has reported, Clarke has aligned himself with Trump and spoke on his behalf at the Republican National Convention.

The elected official, who voters affirmed for the position four times after his initial appointment, is known for taking on the Black Lives Matter, which he has described as a ‘domestic hate group’ and ‘black slime.’

“Before long, Black Lies Matter will join forces with ISIS to bring down our legal constituted republic. You heard it first here,” he said in an October 2015 tweet.

That same month Clarke claimed on Fox “there is no police brutality in America.”

“We ended that back in the ’60s,’ he said. ‘You look at the data and the research, and 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.”

He said that the uptick in law enforcement officers who have been ambushed or killed in the line of duty can be attributed to the anti-police rhetoric that is spewed by groups like Black Lives Matter.

“A war has been declared on the American police officer, and it’s been fueled by this anti-police sentiment.”

 

He doesn’t pussyfoot around with politically correct BULLSHIT.

He shoots straight and hits his target. BOOM!

Good luck to Sheriff Clarke!

God Bless.
