Fox host: Minority communities need to be trained to be ‘more sensitive to the police’

Published

on

Wrapping up an episode of  Justice with Judge Jeanine, host Jeanine Pirro relayed the results of a Fox News “Instapoll” asking viewers whether police officers need to be retrained to better deal with “minorities,” before she concluded that it is the public that needs training in police/community relations.

In the wake of nationwide protests over the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner at the hands of law enforcement, Pirro — a former New York prosecutor and judge — recited the poll question, “Do police need to be retrained on how to be sensitive to the minority community,” with Pirro making an ‘air-quote’ gesture when saying “minority.”

According to Pirro, the response from Fox viewers was “overwhelmingly in favor of law enforcement.”

Listing off comments from viewers, Pirro quoted Fox viewer ‘Jeff’ who wrote, “Why is it always necessary to tip toe around the minority community,” with ‘Larry’ writing, “No. Enough is enough. The general public needs to be more sensitive to the police and show them the respect they deserve.”

Pirro added, “I agree.”

Viewer ‘Jordan’ disagreed, saying.”Yes. Those cops were racially profiling,” setting off a condescending Pirro who said, “Hey Jordan, you don’t even know what racial profiling is.”

“That’s when race is used to engage law enforcement in the minority community, ” she explained. “But offender profiling is when an offender is ID’d by a description including his race, which is the only way to investigate some of these cases.”

Pirro also disagreed with ‘Ann’ who wrote, ” Sure do… I seriously doubt this man would have been treated so harsh if he were white.”

The former judge dismissed the comment, saying “you’re wrong,” before asking, “Did you notice the African-American cop standing around?”

Jeffrey Epstein’s IT consultant reveals he saw girls who ‘couldn’t have more than 15 or 16’ on private island

Published

ABC News broke a story just after midnight Thursday about a former IT consultant of Jeffrey Epstein's who resigned because he couldn't take some of the things he was seeing on Epstein's private island compound.

The island, which has been called "pedophile island" by locals, had "topless women everywhere.

"There were photos of topless women everywhere," said contractor Steve Scully, who began working for Epstein in 1999 and continued for six years. "On his desk, in his office, in his bedroom."

‘Names are going to start coming out’: New report says more elites will be exposed in the Epstein case — and ‘DC is on edge’

Published

Will other powerful people — presumably men — get taken down as a result of the sex trafficking case against Jeffrey Epstein?

That’s the hope of many closer followers of the story, but it’s far from clear what, if any, fallout there will be. Epstein’s connections to Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump have raised suspicions about potential evidence of their wrongdoing, such suspicions remain unproven. Alan Dershowitz has already faced accusations of being involved in Epstein’s crimes, though he denies the charge vigorously.

But a new report from Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman says that “DC is on edge” over the Epstein case, and any elites who have run in his circles could be involved. Dozens of girls, if not more, are believed to be involved in his alleged sex trafficking, and lawyers for some of the women who have accused Epstein are strongly suggesting that other high-profile figures will be implicated.

‘It’s so un-American’: Internet scorches Trump supporters for racist chants of ‘Send her back!’

Published

on

The ignoble highlight of President Donald Trump's rally in Greenville, North Carolina on Wednesday was when his fans doubled down on his racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color and targeted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), chanting "Send her back! Send her back!"

Political commentators of all stripes were gobsmacked by the crowd's naked racism — and buried them in condemnation:

The crowd at Trump’s rally chanting “send her back” after the President viciously and dishonestly attacked Ilhan Omar is one of the most chilling and horrifying things I’ve ever seen in politics.
