Stockton Mayor Michael Tubbs Calls For Addressing ‘The Violence Of Poverty’ | MTP Daily | MSNBC


  1. Maybe if we didn’t allow corporations and the super rich to abuse the system and amass gross sums of money, and instead shared that wealth with the America people, people wouldn’t have to turn to crime to pay their rent.
    I mean, how can Bezos have $153 billion, while 40% of Americans can’t survive skipping a single paycheck? ๐Ÿค”

    1. @frictionRx9 If Bezos gave away $100,000 every day, wanna know how long it would take to give it all away? 4,191 YEARS.
      Maybe if we closed those tax loopholes, we wouldn’t have crumbling bridges, dilapidated schools, crippling school debt, and kids going hungry.
      But yes….please keep defending the old system. Like a good boy. ๐Ÿถ ๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ˜

    2. @Ro G you’re making your complaint on a Google (corporate) Youtube channel run by corporate media who pay their loser on air hosts several million dollars a year each just to sit there and talk.

    3. @frictionRx9 Larry Page has $67 billion. It would take him 1,000 years to give away his money.
      It must be nice to be filthy rich, and able to abuse the system to keep that money…while poor idiots like you feel the need to defend them, for some odd reason. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

    4. @Ro G you liberals are very selective about which wealthy people you complain about…for some odd reason

    5. @Ro G just more communism coming out of your mouth
      The top 1% pay 86% of the federal taxes taking in
      now if you want to talk about somebody that don’t pay taxes 56% of Americans pay zero federal income tax
      Maybe it’s time for them to ante up

  2. How many are prior military and might be dealing with PTSD,,, another benefit of Afghanistan/Iraq

  3. The rich are only rich because of the labour of others, wealth needs to be shared fairly, Trump gives everything to the mega rich and leaves the rest of us to be slaves to ‘ their’ system.

    1. . If you support democrats then you support the devils legion, the serpent seed antichrist network and u bring everyone death
      Love not thy world, its full of serpents posing as human.
      You wouldn’t know anyone like that would you, demonspawn?

    2. snoop alert Please, who is a Communist here? I told you that I save money. I would not be allowed to do so under a communist regime. I support regulations. I support a system that does not reward irresponsible behavior. But go ahead, keep calling me a communist simply because I understand how capitalism can be corrupted into something just as bad.

    3. @Jason Thompson just because somebody has more money than you doesn’t mean that the system is bad , and redistribution of wealth by the government is pure communism

    4. snoop alert Then by YOUR definition, not mine, Bush is a Communist for doing the bailouts in 2008. Trump is also a Communist for doing the same thing in 2020. Letโ€™s call a spade a spade. Both were forms of wealth redistribution. You seem to be better at the communism thing than I could ever dream of being.

    1. Trump 2020… yeah… just think, for the rest of his life President Trump is going to hate being a loser.

    2. @John Watt idk why he would think that he has down more and owns more then most people would in 10000 years

  4. Remember when Trump was talking about gangs and made this racist comment? ” They are often the kinds of kids that are called super predators. No conscience. No empathy. We can talk about why they ended up that way, but first we have to bring them to heel” Oh wait a minute, that was not Trump, it was Hillary Clinton in 1996.

    1. Remember when he said Black People who comes to his rallies should be beaten up and carried out on a stretcher?

  5. By all means call for a end to poverty,But the rich who dont pay taxes and get hand outs from Trump will never give you one Cent. Sad but true.

    1. I declare an end to it now. Define poverty. I guarantee you will find that only 1% of those said to “be in poverty” are actually in poverty.

  6. FACTS! CNN should have MORE quest like these instead of BLM and far left black professors who only wants to defund the police and MORE handouts.

  7. Maybe some training and education could go into keeping people from committing crimes! Stop bagging on cops

  8. We need community policing wherever MSNBCannibal reporters go so the people can harass them and make them afraid showing their faces in public .. Wait for the data drop that’s coming *I know the contents!* MSNBCannibals in BIG TROUBLE!! *If you work for COMCAST turn yourselves into police now and confess!

  9. You mean address it like the democrats supposedly do ? Because they have run the worst poverty stricken cities and instead of getting better, it gets worse..explain how this is a good model to follow..I guess the give everything for free model doesnt work?

  10. If the state of California wasn’t taxing everybody to death
    People that have more money of their own

  11. When my father left my mother and her 5 children there was no government assistance my mother went to work did not have a car so she would carry my little brother to the sitters and them walk another 3 miles to catch a bus to work my sister and I did not have money for lunch there was no free lunches then
    I was hungry every day. We never stole we never hurt any one. So please do not use poverty as an excuse to commit crime

    1. you have pride…be responsible for your self…keep government out of your life….keep them defeding the bill of rights we are blessed to have. B kind B safe

  12. “The police become necessary in human society only at that junction in human society where it is split between those who have and those who ain’t got”

  13. The nice thing about Stockton, is that no matter how bad any other city is in the central valley, Stockton is worse. Huge gang problem.
