Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke: If protesters of cops really cared about black lives, they'd be protesting in front of abortion clinics

So I’m just saying let’s put the data out there, and let’s have an objective discussion, minus the emotion and the minus the rhetoric.”

Clarke said it is police who are “in the trenches every day trying to stop blacks from killing each other.”

Harlow asked Clarke about a controversial tweet he sent to New York Times reporter Mitch Smith suggesting that the protesters really aren’t all that concerned about black lives.

“If only these faux protestors were asked by media about all the black-on-black killing or black babies aborted in US every year,” Clarke tweeted to Smith.

“Did you say that in a tweet?” Barlow asked?

“Yes I did,” Clarke said. “When I hear these things that ‘black lives matter,’ the only people who really believe that statement are American police officers who go into American ghettos every day to keep people from killing each other. All right, so, yes I did say that and I meant it. Look, the abortions? If black lives, if they really mattered, that’s where the outrage would be. That’s where we’d see protests.”
