    Rand Paul: ‘White kids don’t get the same justice’

    Rand Paul: 'White kids don't get the same justice' - Washington Times



    “I’ve been telling this story for about a year and a half, two years now,” Mr. Paul said at a Baltimore County GOP dinner in Maryland, Bloomberg Politics reported. “It makes me sad. I thought about not telling the story again. But I think this young man’s memory should help us to try to change things. He died this weekend. He committed suicide. His name was Kalief Browder. He was a 16-year-old teenager from the Bronx. He was arrested, accused of a crime and sent to Rikers.”

    “Are we going to let you be raped and murdered and pillaged before you’ve been convicted?” said Mr. Paul, a 2016 GOP presidential candidate. “He wasn’t even convicted! So when I see people angry and upset, I’m not here to excuse violence in the cities, but [when] I see people angry, I see where some of the anger is coming from.”


    Kudos to Mr Rand Paul for actually having the backbone to tell the truth on this hot button issue. I don't see it coming from the other candidates right now.

    Yep, Bernie Sanders was talking about it on Thom Hartmans show, but if haven't heard anyone else speak to it.

    Tis true, but because he speaks a lot of truth, the Party Structure won't let him through.

    I don't love Rand Paul but I think he's making some very valid and well said points.

    Is this where everyone has to buy into the BS white privilege nonsense or we all get labeled as racists? Progressive trolls don't want to seriously talk about issues or truths... they need a comment to help further divide and segregate the population for political benefits of their party. Paul is very smart, very poignant and

    Thanks to the OP poster for not actually providing any factual information or context such as this from his own link:

    The issue is about being jailed without a trial and without being found guilty - and the kid committing suicide because he was jailed illegally.

    What are the issues and "truths" that "progressive trolls" do not want to seriously discuss?

    But really what can be done (not just in US society but any society)? All societies, the US included, are resource based. The people with more resources get more justice the people with less resources less justice. That truth isn't political in nature its the default structure of all of human society. Getting mad at the US system on this is unfair. It happens in every country on earth. The person with more resources wins. That isn't a US phenomena.

    White kids do not get different justice than other races when all other factors are the same. Specifically social status and wealth. You can find plenty of skewed statistics to back up whatever you want to believe, but it is poor people who get hosed in our judicial system, regardless of their race. Green is the only color that matters any more.

    Race for one, the myth of white privilege for another. As the OP demonstrated.
