The controversial Black lawman is resigning from his post as Milwaukee County sheriff.
David Clarke, Jr. could take a job with the Trump administration. The Trump team was notified about the resignation.
As a regular fixture on Fox News, he would often make stupid statements about Barack Obama, Black Lives Matter and anti-Trump activists.
He labeled Black Lives Matter, Black Lies Matter. He often called the group terrorists.
He even wrote a book about how he hates Black activism.
He submitted his resignation letter to George Christenson on Thursday.
Clarke posted this on his official social media before his decision.
In Nashville for National Fraternal Order of Police convention. They endorsed @realDonaldTrump for POTUS.👍— David A. Clarke, Jr. (@SheriffClarke) August 31, 2017

"After almost forty years serving the great people of Milwaukee County, I have chosen to retire to pursue other opportunities," said Clarke in a statement.
Elected as a Democrat, Clarke rose to power. He was appointed by a Republican governor Scott McCallum and served as the largest county's sheriff for over 10 years. He was elected many times.
But in 2014, he became a vocal critic of Obama and Black Lives Matter. His harsh comments earned him praise from conservatives. He was offered speaking gigs and a prominent voice in the junk food media.
When Donald J. Trump ran for higher office, Clarke got on board. He was a surrogate and attack dog.
While he was touring the country, his county was getting fed up with him. He was spending too much time showboating and not handling business in Milwaukee County.
|Standing at 6'3", David Clarke, Jr. was a polarizing figure. He stood out as a fierce backer of Donald J. Trump. He would speak highly negative of Black Lives Matter.|
Clarke got nearly $300,000 in speaking fees, lodging, gifts, airfare and other travel-related expenses while speaking to 34 different groups.
The fool leaves behind scandal and possible criminal acts. He has came under fire for allowing five people to die in his county lockup.
Terrill Thomas was a mentally ill man who died of dehydration in solitary after the guards refused to serve the needs. The jury found that guards were criminally liable for the deaths.
Also Clarke is facing a federal lawsuit for Thomas's death. Clarke has a suit against him for allowing a woman to give birth in lockup without guards issuing medical aid. The infant died.
Clarke faces a civil lawsuit for the harassment of a man who shared a flight with him.
Wisconsin's Gov. Scott Walker will appoint a successor to finish out the term. The person who is chosen could run for a full term if he/she declares their intentions to do so.
Clarke will now find a place as either a member of Trump's team or a conservative agitator on Fox News.
I am betting he will get a show on Fox News. After all, Sean "Softball" Hannity got Tomi Lahren out of her parent's basement.

Also a reminder to why it's going to be a need for police reform.
WHEN COPS SEE A BLACK MAN WITH A FIREARM REGARDLESS OF IT BEING LEGAL OR ILLEGAL, THEY AUTOMATICALLY SHOOT THE BLACK MAN. EVEN AN UNARMED BLACK MAN JUST REACHING FOR A WALLET, CELL PHONE OR A DOOR HANDLE COULD BE KILLED BY THE COPS.
THE POLICE AND JUNK FOOD MEDIA TRY TO MAKE THE VICTIM, "THE BAD GUY" BY BRINGING UP HIS PAST HISTORY, HIS SOCIAL MEDIA OR HIS FAMILY LIFE.
MANY WHITES (IN LARGE GROUPS) HAVE FIREARMS IN FRONT OF POLICE AND THEY NEVER GET SHOT OR KILLED. WHY AREN'T THEY AFRAID OF THEM?
WHENEVER SOMEONE COMPLAINS ABOUT LACK OF BLACK FATHERS, I CONTINUE TO DENOUNCE THIS BULLSHIT. I REMIND THEM THAT THE POLICE KILL BLACK FATHERS. THE POLICE LEAVE CHILDREN OF COLOR WITHOUT A BLACK FATHER. AND NO AMOUNT OF MONEY COULD BRING THE PEACE AND TRANQUILITY TO THE FAMILIES OF THOSE KILLED BY THE COPS.
FOR EVERY BAD COP, THERE WILL BE A DEAD COP!
I DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING ON THE INTERNET OR THE COP'S VERSION.
GUN VIOLENCE IS THE NUMBER ONE THREAT IN THE UNITED STATES.
DONALD J. TRUMP, REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS ARE INEPT. THEY ARE NUMB TO GUN VIOLENCE. THEY CONTINUE TO ALLOW FIREARMS IN THE HANDS OF TERRORISTS AND BAD COPS.
EXPECT MORE COPS SHOOTING UNARMED OR LEGALLY ARMED PEOPLE OF COLOR.
EXPECT COPS TO WALK WHEN THEY CLAIM THEY USED DEADLY FORCE BECAUSE THEY FEARED FOR THEIR LIVES.
EXPECT MORE MASS SHOOTINGS.
EXPECT GOOD COPS TO BE KILLED BY TERRORISTS.
POLICE DEPARTMENTS CONTINUE TO ALLOW BAD COPS AND CORRUPT POLICE UNIONS TO REIGN STATE SPONSORED TERRORISM UPON PEOPLE OF COLOR.
POLICE KILLING PEOPLE OF COLOR IS STATE SPONSORED TERRORISM.
BEING A COP IS A THANKLESS JOB. THEY CONTINUE TO SERVE AND PROTECT IN AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS JOB.
WE DON'T CONDONE VIOLENCE AGAINST LAW ENFORCEMENT OR ANY HUMAN BEING.
