According to former Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke, the juries involved in both the Ahmaud Arbery case and the Kyle Rittenhouse trial both “made a just decision, and that’s all we ask them to do.”
“In both cases, the jury came through,” Clarke stated during an interview on Newsmax’s “National Report.” “The integrity of our jury system is still strong … it is still there and that’s a very good thing.”
In the Rittenhouse case, the jury was able to “block out all the pretrial publicity” and the “blowhard political activists” who were trying to seek a particular outcome, said Clarke. However, the jury in that case “stuck to the law” and the evidence and acquitted Rittenhouse of the deaths of two people during a police protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August 2020.
Meanwhile, all three defendants in the killing of Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia were found guilty of his murder, and that came despite the “political activists” who claimed “Black people can’t get justice in the court system,” said Clarke.
“What I’m talking about is that the integrity of our jury system is still there, and that’s a very good thing,” he went on to remark.
Clarke then stated that the “liberal corporate media” in many of these cases tends to build narratives so that when a jury turns in a verdict, folks get a “false” sense about what should have happened.
“As for the political class, look, these individuals they seize on these things for to score some cheap political points,” said the former sheriff. “These political hacks, you know, they ought to just stay out of it, too, and pray for and ask for justice … all these states should be looking for is justice, not achieving a political agenda, but sadly, like I said, politics has creeped in.”
Clarke then stated that most folks believe in equal justice, but these two cases aren’t going to change the ways of “blowhard political activists.”
“This isn’t going to prove anything for them,” he stated. “They’ll just wait around for the next case that fits their political agenda, and they’ll seize on that opportunity as well. Our court system is not perfect. It can’t be perfect because it involves human beings and human beings are imperfect, but more times than not they do come to a just verdict like they did here.”
But he also said, “But I’m happy to say that most Americans, they get this, they understand.”
