He is going to regret this one.
According to Breitbart News, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough attacked police officers stating that white kids such as Dylann Roof that “run afoul of the cops aren’t shot at.”
“It’s not just about, again, what they are taught on paper, on these reforms that they’re pushing forward in Atlanta, which are good reforms. But … also, they have to look at race and they have to acknowledge race, and they have to understand that if this were a white kid in a white suburban neighborhood in Atlanta that was just sleeping it off, he tried to resist arrest and was lumbering away, cops wouldn’t shoot him in the back. Actually, it would have never escalated to that point. We’ve seen it, you and I have seen it, I’m sure Mika has seen it over our 50 years or so, you’re much younger, of course, but white kids that, you know, run afoul of the cops aren’t shot at. They’re put in the back of police cruisers.”
“They’re given a break,” co-host Mika Brzezinski interrupted.
“And given a break,” He continued. “And Willie, the fact that this happened in the middle of the George Floyd protests — it wasn’t even linked to the Floyd protests — that this happened with a guy who was trying to sleep it off, on his own, in a Wendy’s parking lot is just beyond outrageous.” You can watch a clip of Scarborough’s remarks here.
