OHIO - Following the deadly ambush of three Baton Rouge police officers in Louisiana on July 18, Milwaukee Sheriff David Clark spoke with CNN's Don Lemon to discuss the controversial Black Lives Matter movement. Sheriff Clarke didn't waste any time letting Lemon know exactly how he felt about the entire situation. Sheriff David Clark will also be speaking at the Republican National Convention this week.
Sheriff Clarke: "My message has been clear from day one two years ago. This anti-cop sentiment from this hateful ideology called Black Lives Matter has fueled this rage against the American police officer. I predicted this two years ago."
Don Lemon: "With all due respect, do you know that this was because of that?"
Sheriff Clarke: "Yes I do. I’ve been watching this for two years. I predicted this. This anti-police rhetoric sweeping the country has turned out some hateful things inside of people that are now playing themselves out on the American police officer. I’ve got three dead cops and you want me to calm down?"
