At the beginning of the year, 21-year-old Terrance Walker was shot to death by a Oklahoma police officer while he was trying to flee the scene where he was being apprehended at.
While it was said that Walker arrived at a wedding with the intent to do someone bodily harm and was indeed armed, there still was a local outcry for the young man’s death.
When FOX & Friends correspondent Brian Kilmeade asked Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke his opinion on the situation, he not only felt the Terrance Walker shooting was justifiable, he had a scathing message for the NAACP and young Black males.
Local area NAACP officials are calling the shooting indicative of the “shoot first, ask questions later” mentality too many officers have with young black men.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke disagrees. Clarke, who is African-American, joined Fox & Friends Tuesday and told host Brian Kilmeade the shooting was “justifiable.” He also had some choice words for the NAACP and it’s criticisms of police:
This once proud organization that was a force for good has relegated itself into irrelevancy. I challenge anybody to name the last significant accomplishment that the NAACP has achieved in the United States for people of color.
Clarke said the fatal shooting was the result of “father-absent homes” and that the NAACP needs to “stay off” the police.
