Sheriff David Clarke addresses yet another situation in which the Soros agitation machine is stirring up or paying the local thuggery to be violent and disruptive. This time it’s happening in Philadelphia. Sheriff Clarke speaks to the concern that this type of nonsense will be happening for the next four years. He says, “Not if we take a more assertive stance against this sort of thing.”
Clarke reminds the audience, “I’m not talking about the officers on the street. I’m talking about the orders that they’re getting from police executives who have this ‘hold the line,’ this ‘bend but don’t break.’ We saw it at Cal, this stuff is disastrous, it’s going to get cops hurt, it’s going to get cops killed.”
He says, “I want to see the cops advancing on the situation. And as soon as the first fire is started, as soon as the first brick or rock or battery is thrown at an officer or vandalism starts to occur, I want to see police advancing and dispersing the crowd. It is unreasonable for us to determine who are the peaceful protesters versus the resisters. This is a resistance movement, that’s all this is.”
Clarke says, “The protest under the First Amendment people accept the underlying premise that the government has the legal authority to do what they’re doing but they think it’s the wrong policy to pursue. Under resistance they try to block the government’s lawful to carry out the policies that have been set forth by either Congress or the courts or the President of the United States.”
He’s asked why the police aren’t already taking a stronger stance. Clarke clarifies, “This doesn’t come from the rank and file officers. These orders don’t come from front line officers. They come from the police administrators in some of these cities, not all of them but most of them, they’re under the orders of the mayor to hold the line, to sit on their hands, so on and so forth.”
Clarke warns, “You cannot put cops in this dangerous situation without the ability to be successful in a mission and part of that mission is the protection of life and property, including their own.” Clarke cites an example from his own jurisdiction of Milwaukee County last week. “Thousands of people showed up. We were ready.” He notes that at the first sign of they were going to disperse the crowd, his deputies had authorization to use teargas, rubber bullets and bean bags.
He says, “Once the confrontation, not the protest itself, not the demonstration itself, but as soon as one person, and it’s unreasonable for me in a crowd of thousands to pick out who that one person was that threw that rock or who set that fire, so everybody has to be dispersed.”
A few instances of that with legitimate protests and they’ll police themselves. For the illegitimate ones, the problem doesn’t continue beyond how long it takes to recognize it and clear folks out.
Thank you for reading and sharing my work – Facebook is trying to starve us out of existence, having cut literally 98% of our traffic over the last year. Your shares are crucial for our survival, and we thank you. We’ve also created a presence on Gab.ai and MeWe.com, although their reach is presently much smaller, the continued abuse by Facebook of conservative voices leaves us no option. We’re remaining on Facebook for the time being, as we make the transition. Please take a look when you have a chance or if we “suddenly disappear” from Facebook as has happened to many other truth-tellers. They’ll either starve us out or take us down, one way or another, sooner or later. Now and in the future, please look for me, Rick Wells, at http://www.facebook.com/RickRWells/ , http://www.gab.ai/RickRWells , https://mewe.com/profile/rick.wells.1 and on my website http://RickWells.US – Please SUBSCRIBE in the right sidebar at RickWells.US – not dot com.
