Amazon: Please Do Not Sell David Clarke's Book.

This petition had 49 supporters

David Clarke, the infamous Milwaukee Sheriff, has written a book.

He has become infamous for the horrid conditions in his county jails, and multiple people have died unnecessarily in his custody, including an infant, for lack of proper medical care, and a man who was deprived of water and died of dehydration.

His TV appearances in which he pushes racist tropes about the black community, calls activists and civil rights leaders "race-baiters" or "race-hustlers," while simultaneously hustling the notion that police are the ones being unfairly judged, persecuted, harassed, and placed in terrible danger. He has called the #blacklivesmatter movement "Black LIES Matter," and made other such low-brow comments about sensitive issues.

Everyone who has given him a platform is partially to blame, from Fox and CNN to the President of the United States, from the voters of Milwaukee County to the RNC.

His sordid history is known to many, his crimes are too numerous to list. He should not be glorified, nor should his opinion be sought, on important issues, by journalists or by the viewing public. He should be ostracized from enlightened society.

We must all stop giving this man so much attention. Book stores should not be selling his book, and Amazon, in particular, should refuse to help him reach a greater audience with his truncated, reactionary, bigoted, outdated, pernicious views. We call upon Amazon to remove "Sheriff" David Clarke's book "Cop Under Fire" from their virtual sales-floor. Stand with the victims of abuse, not the abusers.
