The news is out: [Republican Senator Tim Scott, who touted President Trump’s record on racial issues during his opening night RNC speech, said he was “frustrated” that such incidents keep happening.
“Looking at the video, I saw no justification whatsoever for those cops to shoot that young man,” Scott said in an interview Thursday with “CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King. “We need to get to the root of the issue.”
Cellphone video from Sunday showed Jacob Blake, who is Black, walking away from police and opening the door of his car when a White police officer grabbed onto his shirt from behind and shot Blake seven times in the back. He remains hospitalized with serious injuries. The shooting sparked national outrage following months of protests over the police killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and countless other Black Americans.]
House negro Tim Scott sounds like the white cop who pulled the trigger 7 times in the back of a black man. You can’t have it both ways Tim, and you can’t fix stupid.
