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.

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 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

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. 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!

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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 !!

  10. 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

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

  12. 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

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

  14. Just like CNN they don't want to tell the Truth… Again Well CNN just lost me… If you don't like to be lied to then boycott CNN. Let them know that they lie! and you not going to stand for it.

  15. Sheriff Clarke walks the walk. Don Lemon is just a lying clown. CNN is part of the anti-cop and anti-law propaganda machine.

  16. Lemon won't let Sheriff Clarke speak. Clearly he's afraid of too much truth escaping over the CNN airwaves.

  17. Thats a different conversation that CNN ever gave a DAMN about America. Lemon I dont trust you or your bosses.

  18. Sheriff I like a drunk talking about random thoughts when you trying to figure out where he parked his car so you can drive them home to be safe.

  19. DON LEMONAID IS A FAKE NEWS REPORTER AND DOES NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO CALL HIMSELF A TRUE REPORTER UNBIASED. HE IS BIASED AND WAS USING A HARVARD STUDY UNTIL THE SHERIFF TOLD HIM THAT THE REPORT WAS NOT ACCURATE…..THEN LEMONAID BACK STEPPED SAYING THE HARVARD STUDY WAS NOT ACCURATE AND TAKEN SERIOUSLY. LEMONAID IS A FAKE REPORTER.

  20. Wow. They had him on the show just to try and make him look like a fool. CNN is the worst. We can all learn from this… if you want to point something out,something true that is actually going on, do not go to CNN.

  21. Um Sheriff. What rock have you been hiding under (police aren't prejudice towards Blacks). Have you heard of LAPD??? RODNEY KING? Right here in Minneapolis I was targeted and racially profiled by "Minneapolis' finest" not too long ago. Just walking down the street at night going to work. They passed by me, DID A U TURN got out and threw me in the squad car. Found nothing…..still wrote me up a ticket for J walking and sent me on my way. In hindsight I'm glad it wasn't worse. (Not long after that, Philander Castille lost his life at the hands of one of Mpls' finest !!!!

  22. SHERIFF SMACK THAT CNN FAKE NEWS COMPANY REPORTER OF THE LEFT BASTARD IN THE MOUTH CNN COMUNIST NEWS NATION KICK ROCKS ….

  23. CNN's position on anyone who disagrees with them. "Leave"

    So much for journalists being objective. But then again, we are talking about CNN…

  24. Did Don just ask what Ferguson had to do with Baton Rouge? IS THIS GUY KIDDING ME? Anyone else notice whenever Lemon can't answer something, his response is, "that's a different conversation". So what if it is. ANSWER THE QUESTION DON. You sure know how to ask them but you can't seem to answer any…

  25. CNN is the biggest piece of shit news channel of all time. Don Lemon is such a fucking tool and needs to be fired. He’s a fucking loser

  26. The cops are criminals thieves and liars we didn't protest Charlie Manson's death why would we protest the cop's death????

  27. Don Lemon is a poor example of a news anchor, he lacks empathy, knowledge and is the one reason that I gave up on him and CNN, good bye, pussy.

  28. THANK GOD FOR SHERIFF DAVID CLARK………………….HE IS A GOOD MAN………………….GOD BLESS LAW ENFORCEMENT………………

  29. Funnist thing i heard today is Don Turdhead Lemmon calling himself a jounalist. No he's an opinionist based on fake news

  30. Don Lemon is an absolute joke!! You don’t support violence against police officers but he won’t condemn BLM!!!! Lemon is pathetic. I hope you see this too.

  31. Lemon! Get the peanut butter out your ears and listen to the man! You can't have a conversation when it don't go the way you want. An agenda driven example such as what you subscribe to is what the problem is with this country. Spot on. Thank you Sheriff!
