In the latest leftist effort to provoke race riots, Hillary Clinton accused cops across the country of purposely targeting and killing blacks.
In her speech at Columbia University on Wednesday, Clinton stated:
“There is something profoundly wrong when African-American men are still far more likely to be stopped and searched by police, charged with crimes, and sentenced to longer prison terms than are meted out to their white counterparts. There is something wrong when a third of all black men face the prospect of prison during their lifetimes.”
“From Ferguson to Staten Island to Baltimore, the patterns have become unmistakable and undeniable.” “Walter Scott shot in the back in Charleston, South Carolina … Tamir Rice, shot in a park in Cleveland, Ohio … Eric Garner, choked to death after being stopped for selling cigarettes.”
“Yet again the family of a young black men is grieving a life cut short. Yet again the streets of an American city are marred by violence, by shattered glass, and shouts of anger and shows of force. Yet again a community is reeling, its fault lines laid bare.”
“My heart breaks for these young men and their families,” Clinton said of the victims of police brutality. “We have to come to terms with some hard truths about race and justice in America. There is something profoundly wrong when African American men are far more likely” to be stopped, searched and to receive long prison sentences.”
