Disrespecting those in uniform seems to come easy to this administration, whether it is those brave men and woman serving our country or our community this president has shown a continued lack of respect for those wearing the uniform.

So much so that Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clark pulled no punches in accusing President Obama of showing a “general disdain” after the president responding to the unfolding pitched battle between the police and the rioters in Baltimore said:

"This has been a slow-rolling crisis, there are some police departments that have to do some soul-searching...But I think we as a country have to do some soul-searching."

The president continued by suggesting that the problems between law enforcement  and African-Americans are “not new,” and that the public is becoming more aware of what’s going on due in part to cameras and social media.

Sheriff Clark responding in an interview to the presidents comments said: "He's (Obama) built a career off of dividing people. Creating divisions, stoking animosity, the rich versus the poor, the one percent, tax the rich, the war on women...It's been very destructive for America." Clarke continued by stating that Obama has a "general disdain for the American police officer."

However Sheriff Clark wasn’t quite finished with “his” own disdain of politicians who continually use the police for their own political agenda and accused Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake of endangering the well-being of her police officers by ordering them to “stand down.” Clark continued:  "That is a dereliction of duty, she abandoned her police officers, she put them in harm's way with no way to defend themselves," Clarke remarked. "I find that unfathomable, I find it unconscionable that she would do such a thing...She left them high and dry."

Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. is the 64th Sheriff of Milwaukee County and was appointed in 2002 to a vacancy by Governor Scott McCallum, and later elected that same year to his first 4-year term. He has since been re-elected in 2006, 20010 and 2014. and is currently serving his fourth full term
