The latest death of a prisoner on Sheriff David Clarke's watch
was caused by dehydration after the prisoner had been denied water for seven days. Talk about cruel and unusual punishment.
Governor Scott Walker has refused to remove Clarke from his position because "he doesn't feel it's his job," though he certainly has the power. Walker says it is up to the voters to remove Clarke next time he comes up for reelection. So this cruelty and incompetence continues until the next election and maybe beyond since Sheriff Clarke is highly regarded by the GOP?
Um. How about murder charges for the officers who turned off the water to the cell and did not bring the prisoner beverages with his meals?
Good grief. This story is sickening. I have never heard of such callousness and inhumanity, top to bottom.
