Sheriff David Clarke: "Why Is It That Young Black Males Don't Respect Authority?”

Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

From the August 30 edition of Fox News' The Kelly File:

MEGYN KELLY (HOST): What about that, community policing? The greater connection between law enforcement and the community. What's the problem with that if any? Why aren't we just seeing that everywhere?  
 
DAVID CLARKE: Well, first of all, it's a two-way street. Any relationship is a two-way street. And what we're doing too much of is focusing on what the police can do better. Everybody can always do better. I try to do that with my organization every day. I tell them I need your best. We can get better. But nobody focuses on some of the things that are happening within the community. Why is it that young black males don't respect authority? Why is it so many young black males will not comply with a law enforcement officers lawful commands to take them into custody?
