Supervisor Wasserman Outraged at Conduct of Sheriff Clarke
"Sheriff Clarke, I hope Trump takes you. Good luck in Washington. Go in peace."
A recent report in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel documented claims by the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner that Sheriff Clarke was verbally abusive to him over the release of information regarding the death of Terrill Thomas in the Milwaukee County jail.
“As a fellow physician, I know we are extremely lucky to have the services of Dr. Peterson as our Milwaukee County Medical Examiner.
“Dr. Peterson is a Board Certified Forensic Pathologist and it is unconscionable for the Sheriff to “verbally pummel” him or be abusive for any reason.
“I’m appalled that Sheriff Clarke feels it appropriate to threaten our nationally renowned Medical Examiner. The sheriff’s behavior is totally out of line and he ought to apologize to Dr. Peterson.
“Sheriff Clarke, I hope Trump takes you. Good luck in Washington. Go in peace.”
