Further, many people either have conveniently forgotten or don’t know that Mrs. Clinton spoke out loud and clear about Diallo’s execution by cops in the Bronx. Diallo, who was unarmed, was shot 41 times in front of his home in the Soundview section of the Bronx.
NY Post: “Hillary Rodham Clinton yesterday assailed Mayor Giuliani for ignoring serious racial problems with the NYPD — saying Amadou Diallo’s death must spark reforms. “The leadership in this city refuses to reach out to work with a community that is in pain, to even acknowledge there is a problem,” Clinton told more than 2,000 worshipers at a packed Riverside Church.”
Giuliani accused Clinton of making the shooting about race and said she knew nothing about the matter. In fact, Mrs. Clinton was right. It was about race then. And it still is today.
Racial tensions were simmering in New York City for a long time and as mayor Giuliani didn’t help matters. So, it’s laughable when he dares to criticize Black Lives Matter because he has had an abysmal record on unifying the city. He is now saying that black children must learn to the respect the police. Um, really? How about former NYPD officer Justin Volpe who sodomized Abner Louima with a broken broomstick? Volpe would later brag to fellow officers, “I broke a man down.” Louima suffered a ruptured bladder and a ruptured colon. He almost died. Should he have respected him too? How about the police officers that murdered an elderly woman, Kathryn Johnson, in Atlanta and lied repeatedly after kicking down her front door trying to serve a no-knock warrant on the wrong house. They were charged and sent to prison. Should she have respected them too?
Giuliani claimed that black children have “a 99% chance” of killing each other. Um, so I guess we shouldn’t be worried about police brutality. No research has ever shown that statistic, but it didn’t stop him from citing it anyway."
