Rudy Giuliani thinks it’s a bad thing when police are “careful” to ensure that people they stop or arrest are actually guilty. Because “innocent until proven guilty” doesn’t apply to minorities, apparently.
Fox’s Your World discussed a rise in Baltimore homicides not with any real information or investigation, but by hosting “blame the blacks” Giuliani to shoot from the hip on the subject.
First, Giuliani announced – without providing any actual facts or evidence – that #BlackLivesMatter protesters and the city officials who support them have made police too careful.
GIULIANI: When you don’t support the police, when you don’t have their back, it isn’t they don’t do their job, they just do it much more carefully. Carefully, meaning they don’t take a chance. They want to make absolutely sure that the person they arrest has the gun, the person they arrest is absolutely involved in a very serious crime.
Giuliani also lectured minorities to stop complaining about being stopped and frisked. Because even if you’re innocent, being a person of color makes you a suspect!
GIULIANI: If you get stopped and you get searched for a gun, the way you should look at it, if you live in a dangerous community, is the same way you and I look at TSA. We get annoyed that we have to be stopped and sometimes frisked, right? I’ve been risked. But I know why they’re doing it. They’re doing it because somebody might blow up an airplane.
The reason those cops are stopping you and frisking you in the neighborhoods that have serious crime is to prevent those 43 murders, most of whom are going to turn out to be minorities. And you should put up with the occasional or sometimes not so occasional – most of the people that are searched by TSA are not terrorists. I don’t know, do you start getting angry at the TSA guy because he’s gonna ask you to step aside?
Of course, there are big differences between being searched by the TSA before getting on a plane and being stopped by police simply for walking down the street, but Giuliani seemed to think it's just the price you should pay if you're a minority.
Rather than provide any serious challenge to Giuliani’s race baiting, host Neil Cavuto suggested Giuliani should run for president again.
