Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke was interviewed by CNN’s Don Lemon following the ambush of Baton Rouge police officers on Sunday. Lemon was no match for the sheriff.
Clarke began by scoffing when Lemon described the police’s reaction to the shooting as being one of peace and unity. Clarke challenged Lemon: “You don’t believe that, do you?”
He asked Lemon if there were any riots or protests over the death of the police officers in Baton Rouge or Dallas, but Lemon didn’t know.
“I’ve been watching this for two years. I’ve predicted this,” Clarke said. “This anti-police rhetoric sweeping the country has turned out some hateful things inside of people that are now playing themselves out on the American police officer.”
Lemon warned Clarke, “Sheriff, let’s just keep the vibe down here.”
“This anti-cop sentiment from this hateful ideology called Black Lives Matter has fueled this rage against the American police officer,” Clarke said.
