(Weasel Zippers) It takes a ghetto to raise a thug.
Milwaukee County Sherriff David A. Clarke Jr. criticized the idea that President Barack Obama's call for reforming the police is helping law enforcement and is instead weakening "the institution of policing," adding that the solution is to "fix the ghetto" and stop trying to "fix the police."
Sheriff Clarke made his remarks during an interview with Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade on Monday, who launched the discussion by talking about the execution-style killing of a deputy sheriff in Texas last Friday; the suspected killer, a 30-year-old black male, was arrested and charged with "capital murder" in that crime on Saturday.

When asked for his reaction, Sheriff Clarke said the headline should be "Black Man Shoots White Defenseless Police Officer" because, he continued, "I get sick and tired when it's the other way around, when an officer defends his life, they always point out that it's a white officer shooting an unarmed black suspect."
