Why Is America's Justice System So Unfair? | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC


  1. For starters The Police were started mainly to “Manage” Black people and keep them on the other side of town.

  2. The officers should be reminded of the oath taken, they must do their job without biases. We all bleed red, after all.

    1. @Evan Neal what’s funny how the teen girl getting shot. Is you idiots are upset the officer saved a black girl from getting stabbed to death.
      So he should have just let her get stabbed. Right ?

    2. @Anon archist maybe if you act like civilized human beings. You wouldn’t be treated like uncivilized human beings

    3. @Evan Neal like criminals. Gangsters and thugs.
      That’s hilarious these idiots are all gangster and thug tell they get arrested or shot.
      Then it’s the pity party

  3. If our judicial system could just sprinkle in a little truthful common sense, and make a fair decision on the obvious, our jails might not be so full ✊✌️

    1. @nigel Foggin amazing how a low iq 1st grade dropout like you knows more than all the doctors that actually saw him and saw the test results…

    2. @Terry Fulds ye Joe is all about reform now and social justice against the systemic racism ,like that of his close friend democrat senator Robert Byrd who started the West Virginia kkk….Joe food a lovely eulogy at his funeral

    3. @nigel Foggin first off, yeah, west virginian. Eg the south. He was a southern conservative that started the kkk. Eg a modern day Republican. Look up the southern strategy and be less horrifically ignorant of your own history.

      Second, i already got both my shots. I work for my county and was activated early on for emergency work. I worked where they quarantine the covid positive people. So if you are trying to say covid is a hoax, sell it elsewhere. I know for a fact it’s real. You might as well be telling an astronaut that the earth is flat. Ive Seen it with my own eyes that you are an ignorant fool.

    4. @Terry Fulds Robert Byrd democrat senator for West Virginia from 1951 to 2010,and founder of the West Virginia kkk…and covid is the flu….isn’t it sad how the old and weakened immune system people are just aloud to die from bacterial pneumonia.

  4. Like 10 Asians get messed up and they got a signed bill going to the Senate. Meanwhile 50 people get messed up during the Floyd trial and bill proposal. 🤔 Benign neglect strikes again

    1. @Joe Blow Always easier to say those things when you don’t have to deal with the problem huh? first person crying unfair when you do…

    2. @Oculus Nomad’s Lost Tribe I have real problems I just watch this BS news Channel for pure comic relief Sheep are entertaining

  5. When you are marginalised, racially profiled, economically handicapped, historically abused, you fight back. Explains America’s embarrassing crime statistics, time to address the root of the problem. Here in NZ we recognise and are trying to remedy a similar issue.

    1. @heera rodriguez and racists need to step back and run against a wall. Just checking if it makes a difference

    2. @Joe Blow are you serious your race baiting started in the 1492 when you started the enslavement of black people don’t try that reverse racism bs it only makes you look more racist you bigot

    3. @Terry Fulds so freedom justice and equality is not a reason for an uprising you should have told that to America when they fought England for there freedom

    4. @Terry Fulds the English had a big hand in the enslavement of black people too as a matter of fact their still in Africa killing black people for land they don’t own so your not free of judgment either

  6. Follow the money. They all get it since bribery is legal, it’ll never end. Get rid of private prisons and lobbying.

  7. I am old enough to remember the ” revolving door prisons ” that people complained about that led to that legislation

  8. It’s nice to see the truth being unraveled without being lied to! Thank you Ari for exposing the truth, as ugly as it is.

    1. They fear the truth justice and equality but there fears don’t trump our rights so they use tricknology to instill fear in the people that they want to control but willie lynch syndrome is not as effective on us as it was for our ancestors you can’t bullie us we are not our ancestors

  9. I was over a year in Thai prisons (on a political charge). In many ways, they’re worse than a US prisons. I wrote about it. E-book titled: ‘1 Pill = 28 Years.’

  10. “Police are inevitably corrupted. … Police always observe that criminals prosper. It takes a pretty dull policeman to miss the fact that the position of authority is the most prosperous criminal position available.”
    Frank Herbert, God Emperor of Dune

  11. Whenever I try to improve the slogan Defund The Police, my best alternative is *Dethrone the Police.* Covers *all* the issues 😕

  12. I’m 41 years older than that and I don’t know nothing Dua I just didn’t read about it I live through it with open eyes and the spirit of God in my heart and soul.

  13. Being prepared to change in the face of results is absolutely necessary if you’re in power. The problem is that ego and hubris prevent people from honouring what needs to be done.
