Clyburn: I Fear Police Now More than During Segregation

June 17, 2020

Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union, Majority Whip Jim Clyburn said he feared police now more than he did growing up in the segregated South.

“I would simply say, as I have always said, nobody is going to defund the police,” Clyburn claimed. “We can restructure the police forces, restructure, reimagine policing. That is what we are going to do… I didn’t grow up in fear of police, even in a segregated environment,” he added. “We never feared the police. But, all of a sudden now, I do fear the police. The young blacks fear the police. Why? Because we have built-in a system that’s responding, once again, to Brown v. Board of Education and everything that comes with it. When I was growing up, we didn’t have black police.”

“The fact of the matter is, this is a structure that has been developed that we have got to deconstruct,” Clyburn added. “So, I wouldn’t say defund — deconstruct our policing.”

Whatever euphemism they want to use, the Democrat vision of policing will result in catastrophic new levels of crime and disorder.
