Sheriff Clarke continued questioning Obama's sincerity and even charging the President as intentionally creating racial animosity:
“It didn't even start off as peaceful protests. And once that happens for law enforcement and National Guard all bets are off. They have to all use all reasonable force to quell the disturbance…and so when I heard the President call for calm after the rioting started I question his sincerity because some of his political strategy of ‘divide and conquer' fuels this sort racial animosity between people. And so I think when he called for calm after rioting started I believe it was done with a ‘wink and a nod'.”
So Obama meets with civil rights activists before the grand jury verdict and tells them to keep the protesters ‘staying on track'.
Then he states that anger of protesters is an ‘understandable reaction' as the riots start.
Then he likely has Gov. Nixon not bring in the National Guard until after rioting and destruction ensues, which has ignited more than 170 protests across the country.
Gee, think Sheriff Clarke has a point, or two?
I agree Obama is making some very inappropriate statements in regards to Ferguson. He has encourage the rioting and destruction. It is a shame another young man has died but he broke the law. Numerous testimony at the hearing was from black witness who supported officer Wilson’s side of the incident but were afraid of being attracted if they had come forward publicly. They need to report this on the news although it is in the transcripts unless they news reports it most of the public will not hear this. Obama is supporting a criminal over the law. He has some major issues going on and he is focusing on the wrong one. I think the racial divide is much worse because of Obama.
Is this guy really a sherriff ? How is he allowed to wear his uniform and make so many political statements ? I served 20 years in the Air Force and that was a no no … How is law enforcement different ?
It is a sad day,when a black Uncle Tom like this jackass, who blames the President for our racial problems.This ignorant jackass thinks that the whites in Ferguson has the right to shoot and kill a black kid because has broken the law in the past. He needs to kill a white kid and get kill by those bigots in Feruson.
