Taking her remarks and commentary in the article....
❝“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,” Mrs. Clinton said in a forceful address Wednesday at Columbia University.❞
The things that are profoundly wrong do not begin or end with the police or criminal justice system. Until something is done to correct the environments that produce the disproportional crime in black communities nothing will be accomplished. The overhaul needs to start there at the ground floor. This problem has not been solved by throwing massive amounts of good money on top of poorly spent money over the past four decades and most likely will not be solved by repeating the same ineffective efforts of past administrations.
Hillary was only pandering to her faithful congregation.
❝For those seeking the White House, the conflagration in Baltimore exposed a complicated truth: The racial comity that the election of Barack Obama seemed to promise has not materialized.❞
It should be no surprise Obama has failed in his commitments on solving race problems; he's used them as a divisive tool at every opportunity. Is there anyone who doesn't believe that in the overall picture racial tensions and divisions have only increased since he was elected?
❝“When we talk about one and a half million missing African-American men, we’re talking about missing husbands, missing fathers, missing brothers.”❞
Count the families, murder victims and survivors who been the victims of these murdering, raping and robbing fathers and brothers and you'll see the number is at least three or four times as many. The solution to crime is not releasing criminals or even keeping them out of prison. It starts by creating environments that will produce less criminals.
❝In her last presidential campaign, Mrs. Clinton echoed the approach of the Bill Clinton years with a call to expand police forces to help cities halve the homicide rate.❞
So the solutions she supported six years ago are not the solutions she has decided to lie about this year? That's Hillary for you. It's only been two years since she was strictly for letting gay marriage be resolved on a state by state level. She recently flipped on that only because it was before the Supreme Court.
❝She said the protests in Baltimore and Ferguson, Mo., were indelibly linked to an economy that disproportionately favors the wealthy and she delivered a populist lament that prosperity should be measured by strengthening families and communities and not Wall Street’s measure of “the size of the bonuses handed out in downtown office buildings.❞
TALK ABOUT A BOLD BIOTCH! She's the candidate with the most and biggest connections to the very same damned Wall Street bonus crowd!!! No way in hell she's going to do a damned thing about "the size of bonuses handed out in downtown offices."
