Milwaukee County "Circus" Court - Reserved for Schuh
Now it's gone too far. Whether or not Sheriff Clarke needs an airport sheriff deputy escort and personal home security provided by the department when he is out of town, you shouldn't bite the hand that feeds you.
For those of you who have not read the article in the Urinal Sentinel, I will gladly give you the gist of it. Deputy Schuh blasted Sheriff Clarke for using the department deputies as "personal security" (he is an elected official, and a lot of people do not like him by the way) in a recent union newsletter. Shortly thereafter, Deputy Schuh was busted down to "parade detail" from his current position as a courthouse bailiff. His "parade detail" consisted of "hoofing it" unescorted and sans squad car in a neighborhood of a questionable nature. Well, sounds like retaliation, right?? It is. Sheriff Clarke needs to exercise his rights as a position of authority in the department and demonstrate to other employees that insubordination will not be tolerated by any means. I agree with what he did whole heartedly.
Now, Deputy Schuh is filing a lawsuit against Sheriff Clarke and the department demanding his old position back, and of course, money. He is emotionally traumatized. Puhleeeaze. Should have seen this one coming from a county mile away. Schuh's lawyer states that Schuh was just exercising his right to free speech regarding political topics. Well, Schuh's comments in the union newsletter were hardly of any political nature, they were blatant attacks against Sheriff Clarke and Schuh knows it. This whole circus is outrageous and a waste of time. A 55 year old deputy of 18 years, and a Vietnam veteran, should know by now that you pay for your mistakes. If you play with matches, sooner or later you will get burned.
