An armed criminal raised his gun towards a cop and was shot dead by the police in Milwaukee this past weekend. Rioting and looting ensued as people turned their anger and blame towards the police despite the criminal’s actions.
Despite protestors trying to define the justified shooting as a racist act or a police brutality issue and use it as an excuse to riot and loot, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke revealed the brutal truth about what is really behind the rioting in Milwaukee. According to The Daily Caller, Clarke blames the failure of liberal progressive policies as the reason why lawlessness is running rampant.
“Here is what causes riots: We have inescapable poverty in the city of Milwaukee,” Sheriff Clarke said. “Milwaukee is the sixth poorest city in America. You have massive black unemployment, I think at 32 percent. You have a failing K-12 public education system. It’s one of the worst in the nation.”
Even though the city itself is poor and has major infrastructure issues, Sheriff Clarke believes that the breakdown of the family unit is also to blame. “You have questionable lifestyle choices,” Sheriff Clarke said. “Some of this is self-inflicted. All the kids with no fathers around, absent homes. When fathers are not around to shape behavior of young me, they often times grow up to be unmanageable misfits.”
When the “misfits” run rampant and operate outside the law, it leads to a breakdown in society. “Saturday night the social order totally collapsed in a part of the city of Milwaukee,” Clarke said. “And when that happens, tribal behavior takes over and tribal behavior leads to the law of the jungle replacing the rule of law.”
