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.
