Sheriff Claims That Black Single Moms Are “Number One Cause” of Police Shootings

By  |  470 Comments

When it comes to black men being gunned down in the street by police sheriffofficers, one sheriff says the fault does not lie with cops, but with the black women who raised these young men.

David Clarke, sheriff of Milwaukee County in Wisconsin, said on Tuesday that black single moms are to blame for police shootings and the NAACP is wrong to blame police officers.

A body camera video showed an Oklahoma officer fαtally shοoting Terrance Walker after the suspect appeared to have dropped a gun.

Tulsa NAACP chapter President Pleas Thompson told KTUL that the shooting was part of a “shoot first and ask questions later” mentality, but Clarke vehemently disagreed.

“I think emphasis should be placed on trying to take those people alive,” Thompson said.

During an appearance on Fox and Friends, the sheriff blasted the “irrelevancy” of the NAACP.

“This once proud organization that was a force for good has relegated itself into irrelevancy, and I challenge anybody to name the last significant accomplishment that the NAACP has achieved in the United States for people of color,” Clarke asserted. “This organization has become nothing more than a political propaganda entity for the left.”

Clarke says it’s time to start a conversation about the behavior of young black men, not police officers.

“The discussion we need to be having and the NAACP can lead it — stay off the police — is why is the stuff happening, and what are we going to do about it,” he continued. “The number one cause of this is father-absent homes. So what are we going to do in terms of having more effective parenting, more role modeling, more engaged fathers in the lives of these young black men so that we don’t have this behavior.”

When a Fox News host informed Clarke that the mother of the deceased didn’t think the police had to shoot her son, Clarke wondered whether the father was available for comment.

“Well, what did his dad say?” Clarke laughed. “You know, we always hear what his mom says. You know, look, mom loves her son, we all get that. But shoot first and ask questions later — anytime a law enforcement officer is in a situation where a gun is introduced by a suspect, yeah, it’s shoot first, stop the threαt, and then ask questions later.”
To be fair, it should be noted that teens like Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis, killed by vigilantes as opposed to police, both had active fathers in their lives. And after 12 year old Tamir Rice was gunned down by Cleveland police, his father was among the first to speak out on his son’s deαth.

    ?? Just shaking my head. Wonder has he ever read the book ” Dark Alliance ” by Gary Webb. Also , doe he think the new world order(disorder) is some type of joke.
    It’s obvious all the shootings and beating directed at black males overall is some type of 21st century,genocide,population,eugenics agenda.
    All this talk of MLK Jr and his dream is really an updated 21st century nightmare. An oudated slave like dependent paradigm will not save black people on a large scale from self destruction or self hate.

    This \thing\ should be ashamed of himself. His comments would have meant something if the black men killed by police did not have their fathers in their lives but the majority of them did. Stop making excuses for your people, they are killers just like a regular citizen who kills someone is called. You can just look at him and see he will say anything to keep his job title and whatever benefits they are throwing at him to say dumb mess like this. Boy I tell ya whether it is an entertainer or someone in authority, once they have made it, to hell with everyone else. This guy is a loser, sheriff my azz.

    The main problem is the cops’ attitudes & racism. HOWEVER !! As a teacher who taught 40 years he does make a valid point about absent fathers.Back when I grew up in the 60s there were far more 2 parent families. Every family in my neighborhood had a mom & dad. My parents grew up decades before me & Even kids in foster care had 2 foster parents. So did most of my pals & classmates. Those who didn’t live with their parents lived with a family member in THEIR 2 parent household. Everyone went to church & all adults had the same values when it came to raising kids. Good behavior was expected & we were taught not to do things that made black people look ignorant.There was segregation & the civil rights movement & bad behavior from a kid could cost their parent a job. We had THE VILLAGE where all adults looked out for the kids. In our segregated schools bad behavior wasn’t tolerated by teachers or parents. Fast forward to the sexual freedom of the 60s &the crack epidemic of late 80s & there was an explosion of damaged families,teen moms, baby mamas,baby daddies with no one raising their kids up right. Drug dealers, shootings,kids whose parents were in jail,parents on drugs. Women having babies by a slew of men & none stepping up to be fathers.Boys growing up with drug dealers,rappers & ballers as role models with no one emphasizing education & how to be the kind of responsible black man I had seen growing up.Rap music suddenly hated women & fostered disrespect for them.A lot of kids growing up in dysfunctional homes are angry when they come to school & they’ll challenge anyone who looks at them wrong. These kids don’t care about themselves or anyone else. They carry that attitude into their teen & adult years & these are the ones killed in the streets & who make ALL young black men look bad,esp to racist cops. I’ve had LOTS of former students wind up in jail or dead. Lots of single moms do a fabulous job with their kids & they do very well in life, but they usually have an excellent support system. The black community needs to have more men step up & help these young boys by setting good examples.

    Another in a long line of Boot Licking Assholes who are part of the problem instead of trying to be part of the solution. I hope 1 of his relatives is gunned down unjustifiably and then see what he has to say.

    mr Clark , since you are unaware and uninformed about the accomplishments of the NAACP, here are just a few 1) eliminating employment barriers for formerly incarcerated individuals 2) sentencing reform 3) advancing effective law enforcement and let’s not forget the all important All Alert System, intended to report incidents of police misconduct , which since its introduction has received over 1,100 reports of incidents of police misconduct . Wake up mr Clark and whatever you do please never laugh when speaking about someone losing a loved one as you have done
