WHAT IS YOUR MESSAGE?>>MY MESSAGE HAS BEEN CLEAR FROM DAY ONE TWO YEARS AGO. THIS ANTI-COP SENTIMENT FROM THIS HATEFUL IDEOLOGY CALLED BLACK LIVES MATTER HAS FUELED THIS RAGE AGAINST THE AMERICAN POLICE OFFICER. I PREDICTED THIS TWO YEARS AGO.>>DO YOU KNOW THAT THIS WAS BECAUSE OF THAT?>>YES, I DO.>>AS A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER — >>I’VE BEEN WATCHING THIS FOR TWO YEARS. I’VE PREDICTED THIS. THIS ANTI-POLICE RHETORIC SWEEPING THE COUNTRY HAS TURNED OUT SOME HATEFUL THINGS INSIDE OF PEOPLE THAT ARE NOW PLAYING THEMSELVES OUT ON THE AMERICAN POLICE OFFICER. I WANT TO KNOW WITH ALL OF THE BLACK ON BLACK VIOLENCE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, BY THE WAY, WHEN THE TRAGEDIES HAPPENED IN LOUISIANA AND MINNESOTA, YOU KNOW THAT 21 BLACK PEOPLE WERE MURDERED ACROSS THE UNITED STATES? WAS THERE ANY REPORTING ON THAT?>>BLACK OFFICER WHO WAS KILLED TODAY.>>WAS THERE ANY REPORTING ON THAT?>>SHERIFF, PLEASE. LET’S JUST KEEP THE VIBE DOWN HERE. SO I UNDERSTAND, AND, LISTEN — >>I’M LOOKING AT THREE DEAD COPS THIS WEEK AND I AM LOOKING AT FIVE LAST WEEK. YOU’RE TRYING TO TELL ME TO KEEP IT DOWN?>>CAN WE JUST PLEASE? WE CAN KEEP IT CIVIL. THE MESSAGE TO PEOPLE AT HOME, I’M SURE YOU WANT IS ONE OF CIVILITY.>>DON, I WISH YOU HAD THAT MESSAGE OF CIVILITY — >>I’M TRYING TO HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH YOU — >>FOR THIS HATEFUL IDEOLOGY. THESE PURVEYORS OF HATE.>>WHAT I WANT TO SAY TO YOU IS THESE PEOPLE — ARE WISCONSIN, HERE LIVE IN CLEVELAND, YOU’RE SET TO SPEAK TOMORROW. AND ALL I WANT TO DO IS HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH YOU, I CAN’T HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH YOU IF WE’RE BOTH TALKING AT THE SAME TIME. WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE TO ME IS THAT YOU’RE ACCUSING ME OF VIOLENCE, BY SUPPORTING A NARRATIVE THAT I’M NOT NECESSARILY IN SUPPORT OF. I DON’T SUPPORT VIOLENCE AGAINST POLICE OFFICERS OR ANYONE. IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A CONVERSATION, I AM MORE THAN WILLING TO WELCOME A CONVERSATION WITH YOU, I DON’T DISAGREE WITH YOU THAT THERE’S A NARRATIVE ACROSS THE COUNTRY THAT COULD BE HARMING POLICE OFFICERS, BUT WE DON’T KNOW RIGHT NOW, AS SOMEONE WHO WAS IN LAW ENFORCEMENT, IF THAT WAS THE ACTUAL CAUSE OF IT.>>LET ME ASK YOU THIS, DO WE KNOW THAT GENERALLY THE AMERICAN LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS ARE RACIST? DO WE KNOW THIS?>>GO ON.>>I ASKED A QUESTION.>>DO I KNOW THAT IN GENERAL AMERICAN LAW ENFORCEMENT IS RA RACIST? IF YOU’RE ACCUSING THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT ACROSS THIS COUNTRY AS A WHOLE IS RACIST, THEN YOUR ASSUMPTION IS WRONG.>>THIS WHOLE ANTI-POLICE RHETORIC IS BASED ON A LIE. THERE IS NO DATA, AND YOU KNOW THIS, THERE IS NO DATA, THERE IS NO RESEARCH THAT PROVES ANY OF THAT NONSENSE. NONE.>>YOU HAVE TO BE MORE SPECIFIC ABOUT WHAT DATA AND WHAT NONSENSE YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT.>>THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS TREAT BLACK MALES DIFFERENT THAN WHITE MALES IN POLICING IN THESE URBAN CENTERS.>>THERE IS DATA THAT SUPPORTS THAT.>>THERE IS NOT DATA.>>THE PRESIDENT SPOKE ABOUT IT. CEDRIC ALEXANDER, WHO’S A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER.>>THE PRESIDENT IS LYING ABOUT IT. HE SAID IT THE OTHER DAY WHEN HE SAID THAT BLACK MALES ARE TWO TIMES MORE LIKELY TO BE SHOT BY A WHITE POLICE OFFICER AN A BLACK POLICE OFFICER. THAT IS A LIE.>>THAT IS NOT A LIE. THE RESEARCH THAT WE HAVE FROM “THE WASHINGTON POST” — >>”THE WASHINGTON POST” DEBUNKED THAT NONSENSE.>>SHERIFF, THERE’S ALSO RESEARCH — >>HE CONTINUES.>>FROM A HARVARD PROFESSOR THAT ALSO SHOWED THAT BLACK PEOPLE ARE TREATED MORE AGGRESSIVELY BY POLICE OFFICERS — >>NO, YOU WHERE WRONG AND YOUR INTERPRETATION OF THAT HARVARD STUDY, I READ THE STUDY. THAT’S NOT WHAT HE SAID. HE SAID HE WAS SURPRISED TO FIND — >>HE WAS SURPRISED TO FIND THAT IN SHOOTINGS, THE MOST SEVERE IN SHOOTINGS, HE FOUND NO EVIDENCE THAT THERE WAS A DIFFERENCE. ALSO IT SHOULD BE NOTED, THAT THERE’S A STUDY OF A VERY SMALL SAMPLING OF POLICE DEPARTMENTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY, MANY DID NOT FIND IT CREDIBLE. BUT IT’S ALSO INTERESTING THAT IN THAT RESEARCH HE FOUND THAT BLACK WERE TREATED DIFFERENTLY WHEN IT CAME TO AGGRESSIVE POLICING.>>ARE WE TALKING ABOUT GENERALLY? OR ARE WE TALKING ABOUT POLICE OFFICERS BEING UNDER ATTACK. LET’S GO BACK TO WHEN THIS WHOLE THING STARTED IN FERGUSON. >>YOU’RE LUMPING A WHOLE BUNCH OF THINGS INTO ONE. >>THAT’S WHERE THIS WHOLE PHONY MOVEMENT GOT STARTED. >>YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT BLACK LIVES MATTER?>>RIGHT.>>SO YOU WOULD NEED TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE WHO IS A MEMBER OF BLACK LIVES MATTER ABOUT WHETHER THEY ARE — HAVE PERPETRATED A FRAUD ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, THAT’S UP TO BLACK LIVES MATTER, I’M NEITHER A MEMBER OF BLACK LIVES MATTER, I’M NEITHER A SUPPORTER OR SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T SUPPORT THEM.>>CAN YOU SUPPORT THE ANTI-POLICE RHETORIC COMING FROM THIS HATEFUL IDEOLOGY.>>AS A JOURNALIST SILTING ON TELEVISION, I DON’T HAVE TO CONDEMN ANYTHING. IT’S OTH . >>IT’S LIKE GROUPS LIKE THE KKK, I CONDEMN IT. THERE IS NO PLACE IN AMERICAN DISCOURSE FOR THAT SORT OF VILE, VITRIOLIC HATE COMING OUT OF THAT IDEOLOGY. THIS HAS FUELED AND FANNED THE FLAMES OF THIS ANGER TOWARD THE AMERICAN POLICE OFFICER, THERE’S ONLY ONE GROUP IN AMERICA, ONE TIME, THAT TRULY CARES ABOUT THE LIVES OF BLACK PEOPLE IN THE YOU ARE BAN GHETTO, AND IT’S THE AMERICAN POLICE OFFICER, WHO GOES OUT THERE ON A DAILY BASIS, TO PUTA ATHEIR LIVES ON THE LIN TO PROTECT WHO? BLACK PEOPLE. LET’S HAVE A CONVERSATION ABOUT THE BLACK ON BLACK CRIME WHICH KILLS MORE BLACK MALES, WHICH IS MORE LIKELY IN THE UNITED STATES THAN A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER.>>THAT’S A DIFFERENT CONVERSATION. WE CAN WALK AND CHEW GUM AT THE SAME TIME. THERE’S AN ISSUE WHEN IT COMES TO VIOLENCE. IT’S CRIME, WHITE PEOPLE TEND TO KILL WHITE PEOPLE. BLACK PEOPLE TEND TO KILL WHITE PEOPLE. THERE IS A DIFFERENT CONVERSATION THAN POLICE BRUTALITY. AND WE’RE NOT HAVING THAT CONVERSATION RIGHT NOW. I WANT TO BE CLEAR WITH YOU, I CONDEMN ALL VIOLENCE OF ANY TYPE. JUST FOR THE RECORD.>>IT WAS A SITUATION BETWEEN MIKE BROWN AND DARREN WILSON, WAS THAT POLICE BRUTALITY?>>WE’RE NOT TALKING ABOUT MIKE BROWN AND DAREN WILSON. IF YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT WHAT THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT SHOWED, IT EXONERATED OFFICER CARRRCARREN DA DACAR DAREN WILSON. >>YOU’RE GOING TO SEE THAT BLACK MALES ARE OVERREPRESENTED IN TERMS OF BEING INVOLVED IN VIOLENT CRIME, THAT’S GOING TO MEAN MORE ARRESTS, MORE PEOPLE GOING TO PRISON. THIS STUFF HAS ALREADY BEEN DEBUNKED.>>SHERIFF, THERE’S A DIFFERENT CONVERSATION.>>ANY TIME YOU DON’T HAVE A RESPONSE TO SOMETHING I SAY — >>THE REASON I DON’T HAVE A RESPONSE IS THAT WE’RE HAVING TWO DIFFERENT CONVERSATIONS. I’M ASKING THE QUESTIONS HERE, YOU’RE ANSWERING THE QUESTIONS BY ASKING QUESTIONS ABOUT SOME OTHER SUBJECT THAT WE’RE NOT DISCUSSING, THAT’S NOT A CONVERSATION. >>WE’RE TALKING ABOUT THE HATEFUL IDEOLOGY OF BLACK LIVES MATTER, YOU CAN’T BE A MEMBER, IT’S AN IDEOLOGY, IT’S A HATEFUL IDEOLOGY.>>I UNDERSTAND THIS IS A VERY SENSITIVE TIME FOR YOU.>>THESE INDIVIDUALS — >>AND SHERIFF, WE APPRECIATE

  1. Don I'm guessing your the female in your queer relationship with men. "Calm down Sir. Sir." Lol Gay Don thinking " Oh gosh the next police man I'm having on this show will be from the Village People."

  2. I'm white and I know they treat blacks way different wtf is this cop wering black make up support your race u motherfucket

  3. Don Lemon is so intimidated by Sheriff Clark he can barely make eye contact. You see Don here is a black man with honor and integrity that speaks his mind not like all the sheep that CNN typically talks with.

  4. This sheriff has common sense and is speaking the TRUTH!!! I take my hat off to this sheriff and thank him for bringing the TRUTH on CNN where bringing the TRUTH to/on CNN is a RARE thing if it's ever on CNN at ALL!!!
    In the early part of this interview whenever don started to realize the sheriff wasn't going to say a lie to fit Don's narrative, don said "we can't speak at the same time" but Don kept interrupting the sheriff!!! Then if that wasn't bad enough whenever the sheriff called Don's bluff and Don couldn't get the sheriff to agree with his(don&CNN) lies Don stopped the whole interview.
    I almost fell out whenever I heard the sheriff say your NOT part of "BBL" because it's NOT a group it's an ideology!!! LOLOL it's funny when the shoe is on the other foot but CNN will not air nor speak on the TRUTH if it doesn't fit their negative agenda or narrative. They will promote and/or create negative things no matter the seriousness of nor care how serious the negative outcome is just to get people that are NOT very aware or that are that naive. TRULY SAD CNN and CNN knows exactly what they are doing, me I don't know exactly why they are doing what they are doing but I do know who it is hurting and that is us "AMERICANS" also not only you & I Americans but ALL of the FREE WORLD because we are the #1country in the world and we look after our brother and sister countries and if they see us fight well what is that about children that people say whenever a child sees there parent fight well then they grow up thinking it's ok and normal and do it. We are the #1 country and we ALL need to show leadership quality skills to everyone EVERYDAY. With that said I bid EVERYONE a good day.

  5. Sheriff rocks. CNN lives for sensation. They don't care what they say as long as it brings views. Sorry I was here. Fake news. Awesome Sheriff.

  6. If you think the Sheriff won this argument because he talks and deflects like Trump, you're the stupid one my friend

  7. Anytime you peoplehave someone not respond the way you want them to you go to commercial or you end the conversation why can't you answer the question mr. Donn asshole

  8. WOW THIS INTERVIEW WAS AMAZING..REASON WHY I DONT WATCH THIS STUFF ANYMORE. LIES LIES… SHERIFF IS THE MAN…

  9. Didn’t he say what you wanted him to say? Truth sounds like hate when you don’t want to hear the truth. This sheriff speaks the truth. He’s awesome.

  10. We’re not talking about- I Am! The Sheriff is the man and this interviewer is scared to have an opinion or talk about this stuff, he shouldn’t be the one doing this interview

  11. I can’t have a conversation with you if you don’t stay with the program and call law enforcement racist now be a good black man like me and scream 😱 RACISM!!!!

  12. Invite a man with information straight from the source…. start arguing with him or just not let him talk at all.
    You're a disrespectful little worm, Don. Probably wouldn't have weaseled your way out of answering "do you condemn the KKK?", would ya have?

  13. Don Lemon is fake news… He lies all the time. He claims to just be a reporter who only reports, that is BS. Don Lemon is a foolish pussy of a man

  14. Don lemon is a Moron, this guy pushes only his agenda and everybody is wrong. The guy is friends with Jesse smolett the liar of Chicago.

  15. This sheriff shows character traits of someone holding a grudge and taking this incident personal and therefore should no longer be allowed to wear a badge and carry a gun. So 3 police officers killed (and my heart does go out to their families) and he's upset about it like it's the worst thing to happen to America. What about the thousands of innocent citizens killed by police. He's scum. Piece of shit. Come sheriff, come to my town and try this shit.

  16. All the sheep come to comment and support the sheriff. Why? Because he's law enforcement? Not all cops are bad, I get that. But there are a lot of crazy lunatics wearing badges and carrying guns and us the citizens aren't physic so of course we are nervous when cops show up. The law enforcement on a whole needs to be revamoed. Harder punishments for police who break the law, not easier sentences or in most cases no charges at all against police brutality. We need a police force that has no authority over the civilian population and only has authority over law enforcement and keep them in check. You'd see a lot less lethal force and brutality if there were other gun carrying badge wearers with the legal authority to pull a gun on police officers. Fucking cowards hiding behind a badge.

  17. Lemon is an ass dont ever come to save this ass when when He call for 911. its not wor
    th saving this ass.

  18. And the thing is..if someone was breaking in Don's house trying to rob or kill him..I'll bet he'll be glad to see the police..what a hypocrite..

  19. very important to recognise the parallel he makes to the rise of ideologies that sweep through society and then show up later in real life consequence …

  20. Don lemon is an absolute joke he been voted the worst journalist of the year he a fucking joke how he still got a job I can’t understand that cnn for you . CNN and bbc the worst news network in the world I will probably been banned from YouTube for saying that . The world is starting to see that left are stupid and pathetic Moran’s

  21. DON Lemon , was pulled over by this same policeman , because he was sucking his friends dick while his friend was driving, when asked about this he simply said i was only holding it in my mouth, no sucking .real news real people, all the time CNN

  22. Don 🍋 is a joke. You are lying through your teeth. Why do you shave off your widows peek? Is it because you want to pretend you have no white blood. Your whole life is a lie and you work for a propaganda machine.

  23. That sheriff quit his job thinking Trump was going to give him a job.Well it turn out that he got his wake up call.What an idiot.

  24. GUNS ARE VIOLENT!! NO MAN OR WOMAN HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT!! THIS IS WHY IT IS CALLED GUN VIOLENCE!! SHERIFF CLARKE IS REALLY WHITE!! HE IS WEARING WHAT IS CALLED BLACK FACE!! ONLY THE DISCERNING AND PERCEPTIVE KNOW THIS! MOTOR VEHICLES ARE ALSO DEADLY WEAPONS!! IN 2,018, thirty six thousand, seven hundred and 50 people in the U.S. were murdered by Motor Vehicles. GUNS AND MOTOR VEHICLES MUST BE BANNED! IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR PEOPLE TO MISUSE ANYTHING!! IT IS THE THING THAT USES PEOPLE TO DO ITS BIDDING!

  25. It's funny to watch CNN try to push an agenda. But it back fires when Mr. Clarke starts to ask Lemon questions. The day after this interview CNN numbers tanked and tanked and tanked some more!

  26. I hope his fired ass comes back on the the show and says the same thing about the orange boy rhetoric that made these WS shoot up places

  27. This pathetic sheriff is like “if I try and talk a bit whiter, no one will notice that I’m actually an Uncle Tom”. How dare people be mad about police murdering black men in cold blood. That is the true “hateful” ideology.

  28. I’m sorry but this cop is dumb asf !!! And Don ain’t no punk !! He had job and does well .. I’m super black btw !!

  29. maybe if don wouls shut up for a minute and listen he might not keep proving he,s an idiot…..lol…
    ,constantly opens his mouth and switching feet

  30. With that kind of attitude.. Who wouldn't feel like shooting a cop.. And excuse me but there are many racist cops.

  31. Do you(Don Lemon)know if in general, cops are racist against African Americans?

    Don: Go on.

    Sherrif: Answer the question.

    No evidence of racism.

    I do not agree with the decisions of the cops whom choose to act way out of line. I support fair treatment of all.

    You check my record you will see iv had my fair share of run in with cops. Aggravated crimes. I live in South Louisiana, and the cops in the state of Louisiana are so of the most ruthless. Check our incarceration rate of even petty crimes

  32. "We can walk and chew gum at the same time". "Were having two different conversations". how insulting of you Don.
