Milwaukee County supervisor: “Sheriff Clarke must resign before more people die”

MILWAUKEE — A Milwaukee County supervisor is calling for the resignation of Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke.

In a statement Thursday, December 1st, Supervisor Supreme Moore Omokunde said the reasoning for that is because he says four people have died over a six-month period at the Milwaukee County Jail — a facility at which Sheriff Clarke is responsible for operations.

Supervisor Omokunde said the following in the statement:

“Something is terribly wrong at the Milwaukee County Jail, and Sheriff David Clarke needs to resign before more people die.

The simple fact that four deaths have occurred in a six month period under his watch demonstrates that Sheriff David Clarke is unfit to manage the Milwaukee County jail.

Media reports and the statements of witnesses indicate that at least three of the deaths appear to have occurred as a result of actions or inaction by Sheriff Clarke’s corrections officers.  Yet not a single officer has been disciplined, and Sheriff Clarke remains silent. This is totally unacceptable.

Accountability starts at the top. Sheriff Clarke has failed to establish a culture of professionalism, has failed to call for independent investigations when warranted, and he has abdicated his responsibility to hold his officers accountable for their actions or lack of action. He should resign immediately.”

“Supervisor who? That sounds like some character in a science fiction comic book.”

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke issued this statement:

“Supervisor who? That sounds like some character in a science fiction comic book and he’s upset that I helped Donald J. Trump get elected POTUS.”

      Before you make insensitive comments you should do some research. Two of the most shocking deaths that occurred under Sheriff Clarke’s watch were that of a newborn and a man who died of dehydration. The infant was born to a mentally ill inmate unbeknownst to the staff and found dead from “fetal suffocation” a full day later. The man that died was also mentally ill. 3 of the 4 county jail nurse practitioner positions are vacant. And while all of this has taken place Sheriff Clarke has time to promote his radical ideas on Fox News, far rightwing radio stations, and other conservative outlets. He has time to blog, tweet, and wrote op-eds to advance his divisive agenda. Yet, while he’s doing all of this self-promoting, his own jail is understaffed in dire need of leadership.

    This Supervisor ( son of US Rep. Gwen Moore) needs to be reminded that Sheriff Clarke answers to we, the citizens of Milwaukee County, and not to he. We have re-elected him overwhelmingly, and I believe we will do it again, should he run.

        Jim thank you! I was going ot ask if he was one of the sons of gwen involved in the tire slashing. did he even end up charged and fined or anything? Or was all swept away? I agree with all the other posts stating if you don’t go to jail you don’t have to worry. Behave, the life you save maybe your own.

    The great sheriff Clarke is a patriot and shall be held in high regard. I don’t know what these liberal lefty idiots are talking about. If he takes a job in DC, he will serve America well. These so called inner city leaders criticizing the Sheriff should look in the mirror. These pols along with their democratic counterparts are directly responsible for the inner city demise and are now crying because their dear leader wasn’t elected and the democratic machine blew a gasket and was dismantled for spare parts.

    According to a a different tv station with the number four got a statement from Clark. “Supervisor who? That sounds like some character in a science fiction comic book and he’s upset that I helped Donald J. Trump get elected POTUS.” I will be honest. I copied and pasted.

    Supervisor who?. This stupid liberals likes to cuddle criminals and they talk about crime in the inner cities . Our can anyone bring high paying jobs into the inner cities if these criminals are not arrested and placed in jail.

    Who is this bozo? Last time I checked, an investigation is required before removing someone from employment. A Sheriff requires the Governor to remove him. Get your facts straight. Sheriff Clarke has done nothing wrong, and for you to say otherwise is slanderous. You owe him an apology. Don’t take to long to deliver it publicly, like your accusation.
    Have a nice day.

      I’m so glad to read comments supporting our great Sherrif Clark. I will worry if he does leave Milwaukee for D.C. I feel like he is all we have in this ridiculous city. He speaks truths that others would like to say but can’t. He is a voice for the people who are so very sick and so very tired of the idiots making this city a disgrace. I’m ordering my custom Sherrif Clark t-shirt for myself for Christmas….. it will say “I wish a mutha’ f*cker would!” With a picture of of him with his cowboy hat. If this idiot wants to put Sherrif Clark out of a job then tell “your ” prisoners …I’m mean people stop thinking your the victim in everything. Be responsible for yourselves….start raising your children right …stop offing each other for dumb sh*t….take care of your houses and property and each other. Start doing that and you will put Sherrif Clark out of job.

    This dude is a clown…..this is no more a news story than the green party wanting a recount! Moore is clearly grandstanding as he has missed bringing attention to the violence and crime spike going on in MKE. Why isn’t he criticizing Lena Taylor for all the violence recently in her neighborhood?!??!

  • GHOST OF CHIEF BRIER

    Several hundred killed within the City in the last several years and Supervisor Who is silent…. The tide seems to be turning…. People are getting sick of people like Mr Who…. Keep up your pathetic rhetoric.

  • Count crisco

    Sheriff Clarke does not need to resign because people die. People die because they are drug addicts, career criminals, etc etc. Nonsense and no action from these alderman, not all but most. None of these alderman has the balls to stand up and take the fight to the inner city thugs and gangs to stop the crime, address the fatherless families that breed felons at the age of 12. Quit trying to figure out how to game the system. 1st thing these clowns should do is enact mandatory school with uniforms or else a disciplinary camp. if you didn’t graduate HS- send directly to the Marines to slap them in shape which they will face the uniform code of military justice if they step out of line. It’s time to stop the dog and pony show and act, roll up your sleeves and START NOW.

  • Liberal Hypocrisy

    Failing schools, rampant crime in the city, crumbling roads, shrinking Sheriffs office budget ect…… all of which has happened under the custodian called the Democrat Party. Decades and decades of malfeasance on their part somehow equals Clark is bad?!?!?! And the insanity known as Leftists/Liberals/Socialists Democrats continues.

  • Black lives apparently don't matter

    Black people are shooting and killing each other every day… maybe switch your priorities so your ghetto pals don’t end up in jail in the first place, but way to blame the police for your own crappy community problems. Maybe try taking some responsibility for once… I know it’s a BIG WORD and all, but look it up if you don’t know what it means.
