White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki responded to a question from a reporter who asked if Biden agrees with Rep. Maxine Waters’ inciteful comments calling for “more confrontation” from Minneapolis protesters.
Psaki refused to condemn Waters for her outrageous comments. Instead, she focused on the false narrative that there is a problem with police killing black Americans. The facts say something entirely different.
In June of last year, Heather Mac Donald of The Wall Street Journal gave facts refuting Biden’s claim that there is more violence toward the black community when it comes to policing:
Hold officers accountable who use excessive force. But there’s no evidence of widespread racial bias.
The charge of systemic police bias was wrong during the Obama years and remains so today. However sickening the video of Floyd’s arrest, it isn’t representative of the 375 million annual contacts that police officers have with civilians. A solid body of evidence finds no structural bias in the criminal justice system with regard to arrests, prosecution or sentencing. Crime and suspect behavior, not race, determine most police actions. – Heather Mac Donald
In June of last year, Charlie Kirk of Turning Point, USA gave facts:
Know the truth.
Don't peddle the lies of the left.
