Reacting to the recent killing of a Texas deputy, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke (shown on right) named high-profile accessories in the murder: Barack Obama and ex-attorney general Eric Holder.
The comments were made Saturday to Judge Jeanine Pirro, who’d noted that “without leadership” nothing would change the current climate of hostility toward law enforcement.

The uniformed officer, a 10-year veteran of the Harris County Sheriff’s Department, was ambushed Friday while pumping gas into his police cruiser at a Chevron station on the outskirts of Houston. The killer, a 30-year-old with a long criminal record named Shannon Miles, shot the deputy in the head from behind, then straddled his body and fired three more shots into his back.
