CNN: Bloomberg’s Statements on Race and Crime should “Disqualify him”
Quotes by Bloomberg from CNN:
“You’ve got to get the guns out of the hands of the people that are getting killed,” Bloomberg can be heard saying. “You want to spend the money on a lot of cops in the streets, put the cops where the crime is, which means in minority neighborhoods.”
“So, one of the unintended consequences is people say, ‘Oh my God, you are arresting kids for marijuana that are all minorities.’ Yes, that is true. Why? Because we put all the cops in the minority neighborhoods.
Yes, that is true.
Why did we do it? Because that’s where all the crime is,” Bloomberg says.
“And the way you get the guns out of the kid’s hands is to throw them up against the walls and frisk them.”
“Ninety-five percent of murders, murderers and murder victims” are male minorities between 16 to 25, Bloomberg says.
