Cop Under Fire: Moving Beyond Hashtags of Race, Crime and Politics for a Better America
But more than his superlative recounting of his own life, his roles lived in youth, and his path to 4 consecutive election successes to head the Milwaukee police department- his articulation for the inner city policing balance is superb. Actually t ...more
This is not the normal book I would choose to read. I've seen Sheriff Clarke on the news, giving speeches here and there. He talks common sense, ...more
I think my favorite parts were stories about his Dad. What an amazing man! And his son turned out just as well.
He has had such an amazing career and it is interesting to see his thoughts on how things are lining up in the world currently. While I am rarely surprised by politics, I am always in disbelief over the partisanship of it, and this book high lights that well.
This book would be considered conser ...more

The police in the small village where I live are neighbors and friends and care about every citizen that live here. I support our men in blue.
I was born and raised in Milwaukee. In all of my 69 years of life, I’ve never lived more than 30 miles from Milwaukee. I get the Milwaukee TV stations and read the Milwaukee newspaper daily. I’ve been familiar with Sheriff Clarke long before he became a national media whore. Somewhere along the line, the messenger became bigger than the message.
The book talks, in part, about family values, hard work and religious beliefs. Who can argue ...more
the reason why? Control. Complete and total control. If you are an American citizen you are a threat to every politician because you have the authority to take away their power, but you refuse to do so. Why? Because you are too busy fighting other Americans. You are fed stor ...more
His career in law enforcement began in 1978 at the Milwaukee Police Department (MPD). He "rose through the ranks at a slow but steady pace in his 24 years with the department." Cl...more
