Hillary: ‘Incredibly Outraging to See . . . Systemic Racism in Our Criminal Justice System’

When tonight’s Democratic debate waded into the Black Lives Matter movement, NBC’s Lester Holt asked Hillary Clinton if these activists’ perception that “their lives are cheap” is accurate, and Clinton replied “sadly it’s reality.”

“And it has been heartbreaking and incredibly outraging to see the constant stories of young men, like Walter Scott, as you said, who have been killed by police officers,” she continued. ”There needs to be a concerted effort to address the systemic racism in our criminal-justice system. And that requires a very clear agenda for retraining police officers, looking at ways to end racial profiling, finding more ways to really bring the disparities that stalk our country into high relief.”

“One out of three African American men may well end up going to prison,” Clinton said. ”That’s the statistic. I want people here to think what we would be doing if it was one out of three white men. And very often the black men are arrested, convicted, and incarcerated for offenses that do not lead to the same results for white men.”

Biden Lies Again and Again

Joe Biden is a career liar and he lied some more in the debate, for instance when he dismissed the now well-supported New York Post story about Hunter Biden's business dealing as "a Russian plant." There is zero evidence for this. He offered this line: There are 50 former national intelligence folks who said ... Read More
