Nothing says effective leader like reassigning your employees to high risk assignments as retaliation for negative things they write about you!
And nothing says Moron of the Week like Milwaukee’s very own Sheriff David Clarke:
A deputy who last week blasted Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. in a union newsletter was reassigned Monday to a one-man foot patrol, with no squad car, in the north side area of Milwaukee where a spate of murders has garnered community attention. – JS Online
Yesterday Clarke – who made a failed run at mayor two years ago as the sole Republican – made a gesture of joining his man on the street to ‘offer advice’ and to put a happy spin on the story. He said, “I’m a cop at heart. I like to do police work — old-fashioned police work.” and I thought to myself, “Yeah! Nothing says ‘old-fashioned’ like putting people in dangerous situations because they point out you’re so ‘old fashioned’ that you feel the need for a police escort when walking through the airport!”
Not even Drew Rosenhaus gets a police escort in the airport, and he’s the most hated man in Wisconsin right now, so why does Mr. tough guy Sheriff need one?!
Thankfully, the county is getting involved in this and will hopefully lay down some repremands of their own.
