SHERIFF DAVID CLARKE JOINS TRUMP’S DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY

Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke is joining the Trump administration’s Homeland Security Department.

He will work in the department’s Office of Partnership and Engagement as a liaison with state, local and tribal law enforcement and governments according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Mr. Clarke is a controversial choice for Mr. Trump to hire. He is currently being investigated for the deaths of at least four peopleinside of his jail, including a baby.

Just recently, local prosecutors launched an inquest into the death of a mentally disturbed man, Terrill Thomas, who died in his custody. Mr. Thomas had been denied water for over a week at the time of his passing according to the medical examiner. The medical examiner classified Mr. Thomas’s death as a homicide.

Following this determination by the medical examiner, Mr. Clarke called his office and threatened him. He then called the state Medical Examining Board to try to get him sanctioned and have his license revoked.
