EX-Sheriff In WI Advises Radio Listeners On Getting Away With Killing Protesters
Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke advised his radio audience last week on how to get away with killing protesters after a 17-year-old was charged with killing two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, according to Media Matters for America.
- As guest host of WISN's The Mark Belling Show, Clarke told the audience to “have a plan” to justify shootings and said people “don’t need permission from the police” to defend themselves.
- “The question is when is government going to do something? Inaction is not a plan. You know what happens with inaction?” Clarke said. “People take the law into their own hands. Government is leaving them no choice.”
- The former sheriff said while he does not advocate for “stuff that’s starting to happen,” he is “through with condemning it.”
- Instead, he explained to listeners how they can potentially get away with taking the law into their own hands.
“Think about it, have a plan. Act reasonably. You have to act reasonably. Then you’re going to have to articulate what you did afterwards.”
“The majority of these gun purchases are first-time gun owners. And when we leave this up to the individual, it’s not going to end real pretty. But I don’t blame them. Have a plan, think it through, be able to articulate it, and be reasonable. It’s all the law requires. You have the right to defend yourself, you don’t need permission from the police or a sheriff.”
