Here we go again…..
This debate continues to rage on and it grips the country. Normally, this is super serious stuff, but this right here? It is just sad, but it is kind of funny.
Geraldo LOSES it on here. He is clearly super emotional about the whole thing.
Facts don’t care about your feelings though. People can scream and cry all day, but that doesn’t make them right.
I love how Bongino stays super chill during the entire thing.
Take a look:
The Red State Observer had this to say:
With the shooting of Daunte Wright taking center stage now, despite it being fairly clear that it was an accidental discharge while serving a valid warrant, arguments over “systemic racism” and reformation of the police are happening apace on cable news.
The discussion starts with Geraldo speaking as an expert on how police wear their weapons and suggesting the gun should be moved to the non-dominant hand’s side. As Bongino points out, that’s a ridiculously stupid idea. Anyone that has tried to cross-draw knows the problems with it, and that’s specifically true when you might be pinned down on the ground with someone on top of you. Geraldo also tried to claim that black people are killed at twice the rate of white people by police per capita, insinuating there’s some kind of racial animus driving those numbers.
It was the end of the clip where Geraldo goes off, though. Bongino rightly points out that there is no data to back up the idea that there is a plague of police officers hunting down and murdering black men. Geraldo then launches into an obscenity-filled tirade about how Bongino is why protesters have the rage they do. Apparently, facts make them outraged?
The Associated Press reportedon the incident which sparked the debate:
Black community leaders and family members of Daunte Wright were calling for more serious charges against a white police officer in Wright’s death, comparing her case to the murder charge brought against a Black officer who killed a white woman in nearby Minneapolis.
Former Brooklyn Center police Officer Kim Potter was charged with second-degree manslaughter in Sunday’s shooting of Wright, a 20-year-old Black man, during a traffic stop. The former police chief in Brooklyn Center, a majority nonwhite suburb, said Potter mistakenly fired her handgun when she meant to use her Taser. Both the chief and Potter resigned Tuesday. Potter was due for her initial court appearance Thursday.
However, protesters and Wright’s family members say there’s no excuse for the shooting and want Potter to face more serious charges.
