Sheriff David Clarke Destroys Holder’s New Ferguson Charges

‘This Is an abuse of power’

Despite his Justice Department’s declining to bring civil rights violation charges against former Ferguson, MO. police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown last August, Eric Holder’s DoJ is set to sue the Ferguson Police Department for racial discrimination.

That’s a move that Milwaukee County sheriff David Clarke calls an “abuse of power.”

“Eric Holder has gone 15 for 15 in terms of indicting police departments of some sort of wrongdoing,” Clarke said Friday on Fox and Friends. “There’s no objectivity in his investigations and oftentimes the conclusion is written before the investigation even starts.”

The Department of Justice filed a lawsuit in late July against The Pennsylvania State Police’s requirement that all state-police applicants, male or female, pass the same exact physical fitness test to be admitted for cadet training. The Pennsylvania State Police challenged the federal lawsuit.

Sheriff Clarke is advising the Ferguson PD to follow suit and fight the feds’ phony, feel-good lawsuit. “If I were the city of Ferguson I would fight this.”

“Look, the Ferguson grand jury got it right,” Clarke contended. “Officer Darren Wilson acted reasonably in defending his life against Mike Brown. It was a tragedy, we all know that. But Eric Holder early on before that investigation had started said we’ll get this right and the fact that the grand jury ruled not the way he thought they should have, he’s still going to try to extract his pound of flesh.”

Clarke also mentioned that Holder’s new witch hunt will be “costly” to taxpayers and it “takes up time, valuable time that takes [officers] away from the street.”

Last August Clarke said Eric Holder “owes every officer in America an apology” for his “irresponsible” and “inflammatory” rhetoric.
