PROGRESSIVE POLITICAL COMMENTARY: “Roland Martin: Sheriff David Clarke too Dangerous to Lead a Federal Agency” / Lawrence O’Donnell ☮

Roland Martin appeared on MSNBC’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell to discuss the possibility of Sheriff David Clarke being tapped to serve as the next head of Homeland Security in President-Elect Donald Trump’s administration.

During his appearance on MSNBC Martin said, Sheriff Clarke “should not be near any department of the federal government” because he is too dangerous to lead a federal agency.

Since April of this year, four people, including a baby, have died in the Milwaukee County Jail run by Clarke. Martin told viewers Sheriff Clarke has refused to answer any questions about the deaths.

Clarke, an outspoken critic of the Black Lives Matter Movement, has remained silent when police officers are charged with misconduct.

WHITE-WING CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN INDICTED MURDERER: “Dylann Roof to Defend Himself, Daughter of Emanuel AME Shooting Victim Unable to Forgive Him” / NewsOne Now / Roland Martin ☮

A federal judge has granted accused killer and White supremacist Dylann Roof’s request to represent himself in a federal trial that could result in his execution if found guilty.

Prosecutors say the 22-year-old high school dropout targeted the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston in June 2015 to start a race war.

Roof attended their Bible study for almost an hour before removing a pistol from his fanny pack and killing nine parishioners. Five people survived the massacre, two by hiding in a nearby office.

Legal experts say by representing himself, Roof could potentially cross-examine survivors and family members of the deceased, putting them face-to-face with the accused racist killer during his trial.
