MILWAUKEE: Extremist Sheriff David Clarke Resigns

Milwaukee’s NBC affiliate reports:

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke resigned Thursday, TODAY’S TMJ4 has learned. Milwaukee County Clerk George L. Christenson confirmed the news Thursday afternoon. His letter of resignation was received at 3:17 p.m. There’s no word yet on why the sheriff chose today to tender his resignation or what his next moves may be.

My guess is that Clarke just took a job in the Trump administration or another huge scandal is about to drop.

  • Sam_Handwich

    i think he’s going to try to run against Tammy Baldwin

    • FAEN

      Let him try.

    • Judas Peckerwood

      There will be nothing left but a hateful grease spot where he once stood.

      • kaydenpat

        Lol!! Even that will be too much.

      • Dave F.

        A little Dawn Ultra will remove the grease spot – problem solved.

    • GreatLakeSailor

      That could be a problem for Baldwin. She’s went full Very Serious Beltway Democratic Elite since entering the Senate. She voted for every draconian NDAA, sided with Monsanto against her constituents on GMO labeling. She had the political sense to vote against Fast-Tracking the TPP but then did nothing, nada, to speak out against/advocate against the corporate coup that was the TPP. Wisconsin is ground zero for de-industrialization and the devastation of “Free” Trade.

      The DPW (Dem Party of WI) is corrupt to the core and no more than a punchline to a bad joke.

      Feingold hitched his wagon to the DPW/NeoLibs/ClintonMachine and lost to RoJo!, and Russ is a good guy and was a good, principled Senator. Baldwin is MIA in the state and while she drones on about her “concern” on various issues, she doesn’t lift a finger to use her bully pulpit to sway public opinion and lead.

      Instead of channeling Fighting Bob LaFollette, Gaylord Nelson or even Russ Feingold, she’s more of a clone of Wisconsin’s stealth senator, Herb Kohl.

      • kaydenpat

        But she’s better than Sherriff Racist Murder.

        • GreatLakeSailor

          And Feingold is better than RoJo…yet RoJo is in the Senate.

          Since 2008 the Dems have been devistated nationwide at all levels of government. Remember way, way, way back in 2016? Just how many times must the Dems prove LesserEvilism is not a winning strategy.

  • Matt

    How long until he joins the trump administration as an assistant ass-hat? (He’s not the head of ass-hats – too many bigger pricks in the trump WH than he is, as unbelievable as that sounds.)

  • Todd20036

    I’m going with Trump is going to get a token black on his payroll.

    THere’s nothing he could have done that isn’t worse than what he already did

    • Beagle

      Doesn’t Ben Carson already have that role?

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    Hmmm. What spot is open, or opening up soon, in the Trump administration? Will he replace Rex Tillerson or Gen. Mattis?

    • Gustav2

      Bannon?

  • Tawreos

    Good, there is one less asshole with a badge

    • FAEN

      Unless they give him a bigger badge.

      • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

        They don’t need no stinking badges!

    • Steverino

      The wife of one of my retired librarian colleagues is a neuropsychologist (PhD) who, prior to retirement, specialized in psychometrics (psychological testing) and taught post-doc psychology students. She once told me that on occasion, she would examine the psychometrics of some law enforcement officials and compare their test results to the psychometrics of psychopathic criminals, and the results were nearly identical.

      Case in point.

  • Rocco Gibraltar

    He can join Ben Carson and Omarosa in the department of uncle Tom

  • John

    I hope that he realizes he is now just another black man in Milwaukee and the cops he tried to hate can now go after him.

    • Gustav2

      (sound of plastic breaking)

      “Do you know you have a broken taillight?”

  • FAEN

    This POS is probably Trump’s pick to run the Gestapo.

  • Mundusvultdecipi

    He may have been offered a high profile media gig as part of some nutjob media group?

    • Tomcat

      It would have to be radio, his mug would scare people on TV.

  • Raising_Rlyeh

    I got a feeling another scandal is coming. There’s no way he could get a position in the WH. At least not one that needs congressional approvement… right?

    • Dagoril

      They would have to “socialize that” for a spell I believe.

  • bkmn

    Did the lawyers tell the county officials there was no way they could win the lawsuit for killing the inmate by denying water for over a week and that insurance might not cover it due to the malfeasance – and someone demanded he resign?

  • safari

    Does he want another badge?

  • Jonathan Smith
  • DreadPikathulhu

    Tillerson’s out, to be replaced by either Carson or Perry. Clarke will be nominated to take over for one of them.

    • Tomcat

      They might want to rethink that, Tillerson is the ONLY sane one they have.
      Then again they don’t seem too interested in sane people in his cabinet.

  • Tomcat

    Lets hope he is going down for something he did and not entering into the already full swamp.

  • teedofftaxpayer

    Perhaps he should become Trump’s personal bodyguard and they’ll let the Secret Service personnel stop spending money riding around in Trump’s golf carts.

      Then claim it’s Obama’s fault when it stops working.

      It’s not like the GOP gives a shit about helping people gain access to medical care, merely to erase Obama’s legacy

      • Lizard

        “Then claim it’s Obama’s fault when it stops working.”
        Hey, it worked for public schools. Slash their funding until they can barely function and then howl about how much more effective private and charter schools are.

        • Annerdr

          And much more segregated. When I was young, there were not many private schools other than the Catholic ones. As soon as schools were desegregated and bussing ordered by a court, private schools popped up everywhere. They protect the children of the wealthy from having to rub elbows with the children of the poor.

          • thatotherjean

            Or, since then, the children in the “godly” Evangelical bubble from getting anywhere near their “worldly” counterparts.

    • Tomcat

      Does that mean they are both coming out?

  • Jonathan Smith
    • David Walker

      45 told him there was an opening in the White House. 45 didn’t tell him it was for janitor.

  • That_Looks_Delicious

    Now he’ll have more time to polish all his medals and buttons and stuff.

  • HZ81

    He’s planning to spend more time with his cowboy hats.

    Wingers love dress-up time.

  • Tomcat

    The guy should have been born white,,, he just looks like a racist asshole.
    But a racist asshole against blacks and Mexicans.

    • bambinoitaliano

      Unfortunately racism comes in all ethnicity.

      • Jonathan Smith
      • Tomcat

        Yes but not usually a black man hating black people.

        • bambinoitaliano

          I respectfully disagree. Within the black community there is the back and forth of not black enough to too black discrimination among themselves. The same thing in India where the skin tone differentiate the caste system.

          • bzrd

            also darker shades of skin color in Turkey are looked down on

          • thatotherjean

            “Discrimination against,” though, isn’t the same thing as “hatred of.” You can look down on someone for their skin color without hating them. That doesn’t seem to be the case with Mr. Clark. His is more malice toward black people than just a feeling of superiority.

          • bambinoitaliano

            It’s a slippery slope. Given anyone with a bit of power and position that bias can easily translate into action that will do as much harm.

          • thatotherjean

            That’s true, but you can have one without the other.

        • clay

          Internalization is not limited to homosexuality. Some anthropologists argue that it’s closer to the Biblical use of “possession” than is mental illness, though internalization could lead to mental illness.

    • jimbo65

      He reminds me of Dave Chapelle’s character Clayton Bigsby. The blind racist black man who doesn’t realize he’s black.

      • bzrd

        it is said that during the trial of O.J. Simpson, his lawyers had to go into his house to make the furniture and pictures “more black” for the jury’s visit

  • bambinoitaliano

    Maybe ICE need his helps to burn the evidence.

  • Tomcat

    Sometimes staying out of the limelight is the smart thing to do.
    Once light is shone on people it seems to reveal their true character.

    • Johnny Wyeknot

      Revealed the true color of his goatee as well!

      • Tomcat

        That is his breakfast and lunch you see.

        • Tomcat

          If he goes to work for trump it will turn cheeto orange.

  • Johnny Wyeknot

    He’d be bragging about a new job. Not so much if it’s a scandal. Bribery, extortion and IRS. For starters.

    • clay

      Manslaughter by thirst of disabled jail inmates.

      • Tomcat

        You are most likely the closest to the answer.

        • clay

          Jonathan Smith’s seen it, too.

      • Todd

        I forget …. who has had more ? Arpaio or Clarke ???

        • clay

          Arpaio. But Clarke dragged the torture out over a longer time period, taking over a week to kill the guy, all the while denying him water and medical care.

      • thatotherjean

        Eh–he’s been there and done that. It may not matter.

    • kaydenpat

      Position in Trump’s regime?

  • Richard B

    good riddance, but where this nut stops, no one knows

    • Tomcat

      One way or the other, nuts don’t last long after they leave the tree.

      • bzrd

        just as some cops wait outside bars late at night, maybe there will be some waiting outside his house for his first “mistake.”

      • Richard B

        🙂

  • Tomcat

    Trumps private military leader maybe.

  • dcurlee

    I’m sure Uncle Tom will be licking Trumps shoes

  • AJA

    I’ll bet anything that Trump is going to appoint him to something he’s ABSOLUTELY not qualified for, and in fact, would be the WORST possible person for. Director of federal prisons, perhaps?

    • Tomcat

      Director of PRIVATE prisons you mean.

  • Tomcat

    Surely he is NOT going to run the new improved KKK?

    • Jeffrey

      Id like it in person but Ive been booted from Twitter for 24hrs for calling someone a twat. Which I didnt even think was a curse word.

      • Tomcat

        I think twit is alright however.

        • Tomcat

          Twat is a girly part.

          • thatotherjean

            A rudely-described one, at that. Robert Browning apparently did not know this, and believed them to be part of nuns’ attire. Nobody dared to tell him that he was wrong. This has amused many generations of schoolchildren reading Browning’s poetry.

      • Daveed_WOW

        Isn’t that what a Kardashian does with her phone? Kathy Griffin says it’s a verb.

        • Tomcat

          Twat did you say?

            Twat’ the night before Christmas and all.

      • Natty Enquirer

        It’s not a curse. It’s a vulgar expression for vulva.

        • Jeffrey

          You say vulgar.

          • Jean-Marc in Canada

            I say fabulous.

        • bzrd

          the history of twat

          one can imagine since women were considered property for so long, the term eventually referred to them

            I hope it’s becoming more like one big world with no closets. I remember the cute little bi-boy ex-employee of mine who showed up at my door for booty calls from time to time. I never had any idea while he was working for me.

          • Galvestonian

            Crap … I certainly didn’t have a choice – it was cock all the time – when I was 7 my brother repeatedly had to pull me out of the changing room at the public swim club – every time we went. I was in absolute awe at all the hot ass and dicks. I mean it was like electricity, I just couldn’t leave – at seven i sure as hell wasn’t sure what to do but I certainly knew that whatever it was that was frying my brain was all for me.

          • EdmondWherever

            I remember in 6th grade we had swimming classes, and I would try to make sure I got a locker close enough to watch the teacher change. Mr. Ames was a hottie!

        Because religion is, of course, a choice…and they get their magic cloak of protection, so we can prove we don’t deny that just because somebody makes a choice.

        • (((GC)))

          Plenty of churches and other religious groups would be overjoyed to help you leave your false religion and adopt their true one!

    • Treant

      I’ve always wondered about argument #2. Just a cursory glance around the local area will show you that the Universe isn’t well-tuned for life at all. There are light years of empty space, with mostly-inhospitable lumps of very cold rock scattered through them. There’s only one tiny place where life flourishes in that entire space.

      There may (probably are, in fact) others. But they’re not what I’d call “common” and the Universe is not, therefore, “well-tuned.”

      Also, have this yutz camp in my garden for a few years. The red salvia keep getting bigger because I tend to gather more seed off larger plants. They’re getting more red, less orange, because I gather the seeds from the redder plants. I’m the very macro selection pressure who’s had visible impact over seven generations.

          It’s been the Garden Years since I was seven, so… 🙂

          But I was also in bifocals at the age of 22, so I suppose I tend to run well ahead of the curve.

      • Reality.Bites

        And who knows what sort of life flourishes there. The existence of a few different microbes is no less amazing than the abundance of types of life on earth.

        The odds against there being another species that we could learn to communicate with *and* actually find (or be found by) within whatever time we have left are absolutely astronomical.

        BTW, consider the fact that we really haven’t fully learned the languages of any of the other species on earth. We’re pretty good at learning human languages, but not others. And those beings out there are definitely not going to be human.

        • Treant

          So far, the evidence isn’t great. Mars is a “maybe, but more likely possibly in the past.” Venus is a “could be, but if so, only at certain altitudes.”

          Europa, Enceladus, and so on are all in the hypothetical column. Titan, ditto (and I find that one exceedingly unlikely).

      • Cipher

        Totally. They need their own house “____” to avoid the appearance of, you know, overt racism. If Tom, I mean whatever his name is, will justify being afraid of the blacks, well that’s worth a whole lot more than that bi-racial colored girl, Stacey Dash?
