Clarke: Jesse Jackson's Chicago March Selfish, 'Exploitation of a Situation' Click to Tweet

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke (D) criticized Rev. Jesse Jackson’s Chicago protests as “exploitation of situation” on Friday’s “Varney & Co” on the Fox Business Network.

Clarke stated that the rally in Chicago headed by Jackson “highlights, I believe, the self-centeredness and the selfishness, and it’s the nature of this group. The people who are going to participate in the tradition of the Magnificent Mile, the retail that goes on in that area, had nothing to do with the Chicago police shooting. Many of those people are from out of town, they’re not even from the state of Illinois, the city of Chicago, and the retail that goes on down there has nothing to do with city government. This is an exploitation of a situation and once again, Jesse Jackson tries to totally dismiss the black-on-black crime, 433 homicides year to date…and he has the gall to stand in judgement of what he calls a police culture, but he didn’t talk about the culture of the black-on-black crime…
