Controversial Sheriff David Clarke Plagiarized Parts Of Master's Thesis

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, who says the Dept. of Homeland Security plans to appoint him as an assistant secretary, is blasting reporter Andrew Kaczynski who claims Clarke plagiarized sections of his master's thesis on homeland security.

CNN's KFile reported Saturday evening that Clarke's thesis on US security fails to give proper attribution its sources a whopping 47 times. The thesis, "Making U.S. security and privacy rights compatible", was written for Clarke's security studies master's degree.

Clarke, an African-American who became a staunch critic of the Black Lives Matter movement and supported Republican Donald Trump's presidential campaign, lifted language from multiple sources for his thesis at the Naval Postgraduate School, CNN reported on Saturday.

According to the school's standards, if a student directly quotes a passage or source, they must indicate the source's words with quotation marks - which Clarke failed to do - or with an indented paragraph if the quote is long.

Without commenting on the claims in their reporting, Sheriff David Clark snarled at the CNN team that says he plagiarized repeatedly almost four dozen times in his master's thesis. Like many other institutions of higher education, the Naval Postgraduate School considers this practice a form of plagiarism because it creates the impression that language used in the source is actually the author's. WUWM's Ann-Elise Henzl reports on Clarke's rhetoric and actions, and how they caught the attention of both admirers and critics.

The missile came down "so close to Russian soil. the president can not imagine that Russia is pleased", it added in a statement. The adoption of the statement came after Pyongyang announced the success of a mid- to long-range ballistic rocket test Sunday.

Sheriff Clarke, an extremely vocal supporter of Donald Trump, called for "rage then revolt" following the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on marriage equality. A side-by-sidecomparison by CNN illustrated the similarities between portions of Clarke's thesis and the original texts.

"This @CNN hack @KFILE oppo research MO is to accuse plagiarism".

The Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California, says it removed his thesis from its website Friday. A Department spokeswoman subsequently implied that his appointment had not yet been finalized.

Clarke has a loyal national, right-wing following but has been widely criticized locally for his inflammatory rhetoric and for spending so much time on the road as a Trump surrogate and while giving talks to conservative groups. Clarke wasn't among the seven because prosecutors say he wasn't directly involved in the events leading up to the inmate's death. If Clarke lands a job as an assistant secretary for the DHS he would have a role in policy matters related to immigration.
