Demands for Sheriff David Clarke

Letters to Sheriff David Clarke and Attorney General Loretta Lynch regarding the deaths in the Milwaukee County Jail.

Sheriff David A. Clarke, Jr.
Milwaukee County Sheriff‘s Office,
821 W State St, Milwaukee, WI 53233

December 9, 2016

Sheriff David A. Clarke, Jr.,

This letter is to inform you of a formal request for the Department of Justice to launch a full investigation into all matters at the Milwaukee County Jail and House of Corrections.

Four inmates have died this year while in custody at the County Jail and under your watch, the latest of which was an infant. As you well know, pregnant woman with special needs was ignored as she went into labor in her cell. The baby was born in the cell, and neither the mother nor baby received any medical attention until it was too late.

As citizens of Milwaukee County, we are outraged and appalled at the treatment of inmates here. Any investigations into these deaths have been private and/or internal, with very little information released to the public.

We demand your immediate resignation and release of all information surrounding each of the deaths within the county jail this year.

Sincerely,
