Summary

David A. Clarke Jr., known by many as "America's sheriff", navigates the choppy waters of race relations, religion, politics, and law enforcement, sharing what it will take to once again become a great nation under God, with liberty and justice for all.

America has become increasingly divided and polarized in recent years. With growing animosity toward law enforcement professionals, government corruption, disregard for the constitution, and racial tension thanks to the media and hate groups, there seems to be no easy answer in sight.

But Sheriff David Clarke knows where we must begin. We must stop blaming others and take ownership of our families, communities, and country. We must face our problems and turn to God for solutions.

Cop Under Fire is not a dry recitation of what has gone wrong in America. Deeply rooted in his personal life story, Sheriff Clarke's unmatched passion, conviction, and patriotism is a rallying cry for our country. "America's not perfect. But it still offers every American, black or otherwise, who is willing to work hard, the best chance of experiencing our full potential as human beings," writes Clarke. "The challenge is to work for a better future without being fixated on the ugly scars of the past."

Inspirational great story of brave man!

If you could sum up Cop Under Fire in three words, what would they be?

Practical, brave, motivational

Who was your favorite character and why?

Sheriff David Clarke Jr.

What about David A. Clarke Jr.’s performance did you like?

He is a man who believes and operates from a position of principles, common sense, and respect. He deeply understand the constitution, and is truly colour blind. I love his approach to life, and he engenders the human instinct to better one's self, and has gone about this ignoring colour as an excuse for victim-hood or failure. He views himself and others through the lens of the individual, not group or identity politics, that is so damaging for society. Amazing guy!

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The story of success, by ignoring left wing stereotypes and identity politics

Any additional comments?

I love the section where he describes listening to his hate filled voice messages, and reviews the inbound hate email. He describes the racist vitriol coming from the black community towards him with casual disdain. He is a man who truly views everyone as an individual; exactly as it should be! Terrific.

WOW! What a marvelous book.

Among the 1,879 Audible books I have listened to and rated Cop Under Fire is the best and is my favorite. David A Clarke is a great man who has written and narrated an inspiring and great autobiography. Thank you, Sheriff Clarke! I wise teacher once told me that my hero had to be older than me. She was wrong. I am 13 years older than you and you are my hero.

Excellent Book Written by an Honorable Man

Sheriff Clarke puts today's issues related to policing, politics, and families in perspective. We need more people like Sheriff Clarke running for public office. This man is truly a public servant.

I am in Law Enforcement and this book has made me so proud of the profession I chose

I laughed, I cried and I whole heartedly agreed with Sheriff Clarke's opinions and insight into this thankless career.

Sheriff Clarke is a straight-shooter

Sheriff David Clarke does a good job of sharing where he's coming from, and why he thinks the way he does now. His popularity stems from a no nonsense, straightforward honesty, and dialogue that makes no apology for his conclusions and advice.

Sheriff Clarke is my voice.

As a retired police officer myself I wish I had worked with a supervisor like Sheriff Clark. He tells the truth of the myth of the job and addresses the fake news. A must read.

Great book!

I love the unapologetic, straight talk. My dad's a retired state trooper so it is refreshing to see someone stand up for the law and the ones charged with enforcing it.

Phenomenal book

This is David Clarke at his finest. He is an outstanding lawman and patriot. This book is a well written argument against liberal ideology and the black lives matter terrorist organization. If you are on the fence politically then this book is a must for you.

Man of honor

Thank you for standing up for what you believe...thank you to your parents who cared enough to show you that what it means to follow rules and they weren't there to hurt you but to help you become the man you are today. I loved your book and so thankful that there are still decent human beings who love people, who loves our country and love God and is not afraid to show it or tell it to the world.
