Sheriff Who Let A Man Die of Thirst In Jail Finally Resigns

Sheriff Dave Clarke is no hero- he was a man who always wanted to expand the police state and used his own brand of ruthless “justice” to pass over the law.

According to TheBlaze:

David Clarke, the popular Fox News commentator, has resigned from his position as sheriff of Milwaukee County in Wisconsin, it was announced Thursday. County Clerk George Christenson said that he received a resignation from Clarke but offered no other comments on the matter.

While conservatives cheered the Sheriff’s accurate descriptions of BLM and other right wing radical groups encouraged to rage and riot during the Obama Administration, they always glossed over his remarks regarding the expansion of the police state and the fact he let a man die of thirst in prison.

According to the Huffington Post:

A mentally ill man who last year died of severe dehydration in a jail run by Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke was kept in his cell for seven days straight after jail employees cut off his water supply, a prosecutor in Wisconsin said Monday. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that prosecutors told a six-person jury on Monday that cutting off water to Terrill Thomas’ cell was “highly irregular and contrary to standard operating procedure in the jail.” The comments came as part of an inquest into Thomas’ death

Yes, Huffpo is a liberal site but the fact they and only a few others reported on this show that many on the right simply didn’t care since they enjoyed the fact Clarke joined the pundit complex.
