CNN’s Chris Cuomo said during his show that police reform will not happen until “White people’s kids start getting killed.”
“Shootings, gun laws, access to weapons. Oh, I know when they’ll change,” said Cuomo. “[When] your kids start getting killed. White people’s kids start getting killed.”
“What’s going on with these police? Maybe we shouldn’t even have police,” continued Cuomo.
“That kind of madness. That kind of mania. That will be you. That will be the majority. Because it’s your people,” said Cuomo, directing his frustration at white parents.
“How many more?” said Cuomo “Die of the pandemic, dying from police shootings. George Floyd, Daunte Wright. I wonder if you’ll remember their names six months from now because they’ll be replaced by so many others.”
“Why do that? Because you wanna make the problem them,” said Cuomo in response to questions of 13-year-old Adam Toledo’s gang affiliations. “Takes the onus off the idea that you’re wrong about policing needing to change.”
“Forget that police are trained to deal with non-compliance with force that is not lethal. Hey, comply or die,” said Cuomo.
