Sen. Cory Booker: ‘Words Are Not Enough’ To Prevent Police Brutality | The Last Word | MSNBC


  1. Well, good thing then that t’rump didn’t use any words today to even mention “police brutality” or “racial inequality” for that matter. But hey, white supremacist is gonna white supremacist, amirite? 🙄

  2. We need to people to teach their kids to respect law enforcement.
    We need criminal reform. When they get arrested the first time they need to be taught that if they resist arrest and assault police. It will not end well for them and it makes no sense to do it. You ain’t getting away and those sirens you hear in the distance as you fight. That is the next wave of cops coming.
    Yes, you may get lucky like Eric Garner and survive the first THIRTY TIMES you are arrested. You may even survive a stint in prison like George Floyd. You may even get an early release from JAIL because of COVID like Brooks.
    But if you resist arrest, assault police, fire a stolen taser at police, etc…. It will not end well for you.
    Citizens need to pick where they plant their flag. Arbery and Taylor got drowned out by the B.S.. I don’t agree with what that cop did to Floyd and that officer needs to pay. But the honorable should have been held up as the example. Not career criminals.

    1. We need pubic private schools to accurately portray our history with minority and women heroes and the repeated cruelty and indecency of our heritage. Children of racists might have a chance to become good people

    2. So typical how pathetic. It’s not the police force its all the fault of African Americans. You Sir are part of the problem if that’s your belief.

    3. @Niki T haha! I agree teaching children morals and building personal ethics into them are a problem ….for liberals and the elite that want everyone dumb with no CONSCIOUS..👍👍😁

    4. Brooks was released from jail in December 2014. Are you trying to say that COVID *19* has been with us since 2014? Methinks thou art a bullshitter.

  3. I’ve watched ID channel too many times so I know when police does certain crimes they’re arrested, charged, and prosecuted but not with police brutality on blacks so the system and people in the White House are racist enemies period. Some things shouldn’t have to be asked for or thought about especially when we know it’s wrong

    1. Know Thanks …He’s a syborg like all politicians, Mark Zuckerberg is their master. I thought you knew that.

  4. Sen Booker, so eloquent with granularity. I believe when DC gains statehood and we turn the Senate Sen Booker’s ideals will all become law. I can’t wait and neither can any of us.

  5. This is the fact that right now the procedure of recruiting the police is on this wrong hypothesis that the police will deal with the assumed criminal people and therefore should be selected from the same class people. This procedure profoundly is wrong. The people who may be suspicious by the police may not necessarily be sinful men or woman and contrary be innocent which in most cases it is so. Therefore the change of selecting police should change from the root.

  6. The bottom line is that the world is tired of the hatred and greed, no matter how or where it surfaces. It keeps us from moving forward; it keeps people from living up to their full potentials. It is a planetary issue. Letting the police departments know it is no longer going to be overlooked is a good place to start.

  7. It is not just simply police brutality. It is about systematic police unaccountability and corruption. It is about police believing they are free to engage in social, and political policing with impunity! It is about police pursuing their own personal agendas using their police badges! This is American police culture; it is not just a few bad apples!! It is absolute power, is absolutely corrupting!!!
