Racial Profiling & Ignorance

26 Jan

Wow. So this video is just hard to watch because how offensive and ignorant the comments made by the “Mayor” in the state I live in (CT) made regarding the FBI bust of some East Haven cops for racial profiling.

The following quote has already been posted into his Wikipedia page:

“In early 2012, when four local policemen were arrested by the FBI accused of being “bullies with badges,” Mayor Maturo said,”I don’t believe these charges at all,” and “I stand by these officers.”[3][4]¬†Additionally, when asked what he would do for the Latino community, he replied, “I might have tacos when I go home”, a comment that many considered insensitive, especially in the wake of the recent racism problems.¬†[5]
