The National Sheriffs’ Association has responded to Hillary Clinton‘s assertion during Sunday’s Democratic presidential debate that there is “systemic racism” in law enforcement.
During Sunday’s televised Democratic Presidential Debate in Charleston, South Carolina, candidate Hillary Clinton was asked by NBC news anchor Lestor Holt, a debate moderator, if it is a perception or a reality that the lives of black males are viewed as being cheap in the eyes of police officers. The media darling Clinton responded without hesitation: “It’s reality. It has been heartbreaking and incredibly outraging to see the constant stories of young men, like Walter Scott, who have been killed by police officers.”
“Certainly Secretary Clinton misspoke [Sunday] night. The reality is every single life is precious and the men and women who are sworn to protect and serve do so for everyone. To say or suggest anything else is distressing and completely without merit,” said CEO and Executive Director Jonathan Thompson of the group representing thousands of sheriffs.
Her debate anti-police statement follows another incident in which Mrs. Clinton, the Democrat’s presidential heir apparent, participated in a Townhall event for Univision’s offshoot television network Fusion during which she answered questions about white privilege and terrorism. Hillary Clinton said “white terrorism” and “police violence” are just as big a threat today as the Islamist terrorist groups such as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
Question: “The danger of ISIS is clearly a major threat to American safety, but personally, I know many minorities who are much more concerned with
racist attacks at the local level than radical Islamists, so just — question to put it plainly since often, issues of race are tiptoed, do you believe that white terrorism and extremism is as much a threat to some in this country as something like ISIS?”
Clinton’s Answer: “Yes, I believe there are all kinds of underground movements and efforts in our country that try to use violence or assert beliefs that I find often lead to violence,” Clinton said before outright accusing some police officers of being terrorists. I think that when you have police violence that terrorized communities, that doesn’t show the respect that you’re supposed to have from respecting people in your authority, that can feel, also, terrorizing.”
“Mrs. Clinton, who is the subject of an FBI corruption investigation, appears ready to continue President Barack Obama’s cop-bashing that began almost immediately when he was inaugurated. It helps to create division between the races which helps the Democrats to win elections,” said former police detective and U.S. Marine Sid Franes, one of the nation’s first African American major-city police detectives.
Although Clinton often refers to ISIS as dangerous extremists, ironically, it is alleged that Clinton and her boss Barack Hussein Obama are responsible for the creation of ISIS. Reports have surfaced revealing they had trained and armed the Islamist army in the hope that they would push Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad out of power.
