Milwaukee’s tough-talking Sheriff David Clarke
And that's all he does: TALK!
Second largest law enforcement agency in the county. But ask the district attorney and you'll learn that only 2% of all criminal prosecution are brought by the Sheriffs office.
Clarke babbles on and criticizes other departments and pols, but he's done nothing proactive to fight crime. He has gutted the patrol sector, vice units, and special services bureaus. He has reduced sworn deputies by 66%. He did this under the guise of "doing more with less" but then goes over budget every year with massive amounts of overtime due to understaffing caused by him!
The public, especially conservative talk radio fans, love to hear him talk his game. But if they ever actually pulled their heads out of their rear ends they would see his actual effectiveness is a big fat goose egg!
