READ THIS SHORT STORY AND TAKE IT IN:
Milwaukee proper is a highly democratic place. But after years of the drug war and other issues decimating the black community, restlessness, desperation and racism have risen their ugly heads. In response, Milwaukee elected a guy named Sheriff David Clarke. He’s an African American, right wing, law and order guy.
He’s a Republican small town Sheriff.
A couple weeks ago it was revealed that, in his jail. they TURNED THE WATER OFF TO THE CELL OF A MENTALLY ILL INMATE WHO WAS AWAITING PSYCHIATRIC CARE AND LET HIM THIRST TO DEATH OVER 6 DAYS, [SIX DAYS] HIDEOUSLY CRYING OUT FOR WATER DURING THIS TIME.
That is one of the most Nazi like, horrific, acts of sadism I’ve heard of for some time. Joe Arpaio would be proud.
The Medical Examiner ruled it a homicide. As far as I know, nothing has been done about this.
Sheriff Clarke still appears on Fox News.
Sheriff Clarke is up to be Trump’s director of Homeland Security, along side Bannon, the white supremacist, white nationalist presidential advisor, in this “Trump Administration”.
I will share ‘great’ little stories like this as we move along.
Here is a HuffPo article about it: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/david-clarke-jail-death-terrill-thomas_us_57e03580e4b04a1497b5f12e
Local news is SO important right now. Without the Milwaukee Journal we would not have known.
WHAT TO DO:
- Get your local online news and PAY FOR IT.
- CALL YOUR SENATOR AND CONGRESSMAN and tell them this is not an appropriate president for our country.
- Call the President and let him know this is not acceptable for America.
