National Sheriffs’ Association responds to Hillary’s cop-bashing on Dem debate stage

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.

The National Sheriffs’ Association CEO and Executive Director Jonathan Thompson released the following statement:

Last night, during the Democratic Debate in Charleston, South Carolina, candidate Secretary Hillary Clinton was asked by Debate Moderator Lestor Holt, if it’s perception or reality that the lives of black men are cheap in the eyes of police officers. The candidate responded: “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 last 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.
