In the wake of the shootings that claimed the lives of five U.S. servicemen in Chattanooga, Tennessee, last week, outspoken Sheriff David A. Clarke, Jr., took to Twitter on Sunday and explained why he believes President Obama's reaction to the murders was more or less a "shoulder shrug":

Clarke — who recently joined TheBlaze team with his weekly podcast — stated the reason for Obama's "shoulder shrug" is because none of the fallen service members "look like" Trayvon Martin.
After Martin, a black teenager, was fatally shot in 2012 by George Zimmerman in what became a highly controversial case, Obama said that “if I had a son, he would look like Trayvon.”
