If you live in one of these cities — Cincinnati, Milwaukee, Phoenix, Brownsville — we’d love to know if you’ve had personal experiences with these sheriffs. .... Let us know at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke is the leading spokesman for those who don't want to see the criminal justice system 'reformed.' He is a regular presence on Fox News, and a symbol of a countercurrent in the black community against #BlackLivesMatter. His supporters are encouraging Donald Trump to consider him as a running mate. Back home in Milwaukee, though, he’s been consistently marginalized by other local leaders.
