Washington Post Reporter Tweets Home Address Of Sheriff David Clarke

Liberals don’t like Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, and for good reason. But that doesn’t give them the right to endanger his personal safety.

In May, it was widely reported that Sheriff Clarke would join the Trump administration as an assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security. However, over the weekend Clarke withdrew his name from consideration.

The Washington Post broke the news — and they tweeted out Sheriff Clarke’s home address in the process.

Either this was a grotesque oversight, or Washington Post reporter Abby D. Phillips has no journalistic integrity:

By the way, posting a private home address is a direct violation of Twitter policy – but Phillips’s tweet remains. Naturally, many Twitter users are shocked:

Despite Phillips’s abhorrent disregard for Sheriff Clarke’s safety and lack of professional integrity, we don’t doubt that Sheriff Clarke can take care of himself. He had this to say about defending his home in 2014:

“I don’t dial 911. I will afterwards, to say ‘Come get this dead guy out of my house, he’s bleeding out and he’s messing up my carpet.’”

Do you think the Washington Post should fire Abby Phillips for tweeting out Sheriff Clarke’s home address? Share your thoughts below!
