Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke believes anarchists are using poor black Americans in order to start riots against police officers.
“They don’t know whats going on. They don’t have all the facts. This has become a political construct.” said Clarke.
Clarke claims riot-starters are using these incidents for political gain, inciting ill-informed people before the facts of a case are known — and care very little about facts after they’re known. Clarke emphasized he’s been making this point since the 2014 riots in Ferguson, Missouri.
“I know these people. I know what they’re up to. I know their model. The anarchists are exploiting these poor people in these urban ghettos to be the riot-starters,” said Clarke, adding that these same tactics were used in the 1960s in Newark, Detroit, N.J., Los Angeles and Milwaukee.
Citing Detroit specifically, Clarke stated: “”In Detroit, more innocent people were killed than needed to be because police didn’t act assertive enough and aggressive enough early on to dissuade and disrupt this subhuman behavior.”
Clarke says police departments must be assertive and aggressive early to deter the “subhuman behavior” before it gets out of control.
