Sheriff Clarke: ‘Blame Milwaukee Unrest on ‘Ghetto’ Culture and ‘Failed Urban Policy,’ Not Police’

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke held a press conference Sunday evening during which he addressed the mass unrest that broke out in the city following the police-involved shooting of an armed black man, 23-year-old Sylville Smith, by an unnamed black Milwaukee police officer.

Speaking calmly but sternly, Clarke defended his request to deploy the National Guard in the city, asserting that he will not stand for the type of violence and rioting that occurred in Baltimore or Ferguson, Missouri, after other police-involved deaths.

Clarke concluded by exhorting angry citizens to “stop trying to fix the police” and to instead “fix the ghetto.”
