Sheriff David Clarke: Black Lives Matter’s Actions Amount To ‘Anarchy’ [VIDEO]

CLEVELAND — Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke blasted the Black Lives Matter movement Monday, arguing that what their actions amount to is “anarchy.”

Speaking at the Republican National Convention, Clarke said, “What we witnessed in Ferguson and Baltimore and Baton Rouge was a collapse of the social order. So many of the actions of the occupy movement and Black Lives Matter transcends people protest and violates the code of conduct we rely on. I called anarchy.”

“American law enforcement officers understand that race is and has been a heated issue in our country. Most appreciate the vital need for thoroughness and transparency in pursuit of the greater good in their actions and their investigations,” Clarke said. “These are truths that are self-evident to me and to which I practice. they are the truths the donald trump understands and supports.”

“Donald Trump is the steadfast leader our nation needs. He has spoken passionately to me of his belief in our American system of justice and he speaks to the values that are at the foundation of our social contract.”
