New York Police Expert Fact Checks Bloomberg On Racial Profiling | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC


Audio recently unearthed by podcaster and Sanders supporter Benjamin Dixon reveals former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg reveals Bloomberg defending his stop and frisk policy. The audio has yet to be confirmed by NBC News. After years of defending the policy, Bloomberg has recently walked back his stance, and in a recent interview his Campaign Manager Kevin Sheekey told MSNBC’s Ari Melber that “Mike got it wrong.” Former Federal Prosecutor and Overseer of NYPD Oversight Board Maya Wiley joins MSNBC’s Ari Melber to discuss Bloomberg’s stop and frisk policy that was “traumatizing black and Latino” citizens. Wiley argues while “Bloomberg deserves a lot of credit for efforts on gun violence,” it was not a result of stop and frisk as the majority of people “weren’t even given a summons after they were stopped.” Aired on 02/11/2020.

    Let’s stop and investigate every person on Wall st. I bet there will be a higher rate of criminals caught than 10%.

      Exactly! That is why I like Sen. Elizabeth Warren

      @HiSomebody TrackingMuch? I am for Bernie, but I still wouldn’t mind Warren over the rest of the candidates.

      If they support trump they can commit crime and Barr will clear it for them and we will all watch and life will go on but someday we will for and it won’t matter anymore.

    He doesn’t actually apologize for his actions; only that it took him “too long to understand the impacts.”

    • I don’t think 40yo black men wearing a suit and tie were stopped very often. It’s not a race thing. I could see an argument that there’s 4th amendment/due process violations here, but again I don’t think it’s racist.

    • @Ian G Soooooo if you got shot by one of the 1% you’re good with that? Ok.

    • Little Dorrit TRUMP 2020!!!! Thank you for your support!!!!

    • @Rodney Boehner that’s just silly. We all know there isnt soda in that big gulp and drinking alcohol in public is a violation.

  6. and we still see his ads

  7. Bloomberg looks like Emperor Palpatine, what a coincidence.

  8. He’s a liar

  9. Buying his way into number 2 and still has no chance. 🤣🤣🤣

    • @Mr. Pritchard She ultimately Spent 1.2 ish billion and LOST..$$ isn’t going to help the absolute FREAK… No DEMONCRAPS…EVER!!

    • @Rich Myers thank you for posting the numbers.

    • @Rich Myers I voted for Trump in 2016 but if anything gets me to vote for a Democrat in 2020 it’s because the Republicans like you I’ve met on the internet have been such repulsive morons.

  10. Why would any working person ever think that any billionaire would work for or even care about them?

  11. *”Xerox”* he said.

  12. Bloombergs a tyrant.

      CyanLink, most people who get plastic surgery, don’t need it.

    • @Stephanie Drake Finally, my point went over your head. You’ve been going on and on about what is and isn’t enumerated rights, so I brought up free education to show your hypocrisy. Basically, you activated my trap card.

    • @Stephanie Drake Cool, I don’t feel the need for one either, but I own one anyway.

    • @Stephanie Drake So can you see how need isn’t a barrier for what you should legally be allowed to do?

  13. I’m black and grew up in New York City. I have a college education. Own my own business. And own a home. During the stop and frisk years that Bloomberg was mayor, I was stopped numerous times and accused by police of “fitting the description” of someone who committed a crime. Sometimes the police would scream at me to stop because I always figured they were yelling at someone else. They asked for ID, checked my pockets, radioed by ID to a police station, I assume to check for warrants. The stop and frisks also occurred in the streets of black and Latino and immigrant neighborhoods where police set up random roadblocks, usually on weekends, and forced motorists to produce a driver’s license, registration and proof of insurance to pass through. In addition, police cars would follow law-abiding drivers and run their license plates to pull over those with outstanding tickets. I’m happy this is all coming out now. Ultimately I left New York. I couldn’t take Nazi stop and frisk tactics after working a 60-hour week.

      This can’t be true. New York is a Democrat run city and “only Repubkicans are racist”.

      David: you might therefore want to be wary of Mr. Bloomberg

    • Alchemystical Adventures | February 11, 2020 at 9:27 PM | Reply

      David Dees Were you ever robbed, assaulted, car jacked, or otherwise the victim of a bodily crime? Just curious.

    • ilovebeingwhite | February 11, 2020 at 10:18 PM | Reply

      Do you think only blacks and Latinos get the “stop and frisk” routine? Im white and I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve encountered your scenario. It’s one thing to say your against authoritative policing but don’t assume you know what happens everywhere to everyone.

    • ilovebeingwhite lol liar

  14. MSNBC and Bloomberg are both complete pieces of s***!

  15. P'd off Veteran | February 11, 2020 at 6:52 PM | Reply

    MSDNC Left our the part where Bloomberg said slam black against the wall and frisk them. Thumbs Down immediately

  16. I am disturbed by him using Parkland survivors in his ads: Bloomberg treatment of African Americans (hence Stop and Frisk), and his friendships with Jeff Epstein and Harvey Weinstein

  17. SouthPhilly Spud | February 11, 2020 at 7:22 PM | Reply

    At least have some balls and stand behind your statement.. He’s a poor excuse of a man and won’t ever be the president!!

  18. “He apologized in 2020” 🤔🤔🤔 it’s just 1 month into 2020 😭🤣😭

    • That’s called “in 2020”.

    • @J Jackson any other time it would be called “recently”. They couldn’t just admit that BloomBucks was WRONG and they gotta throw Trump in there. Trump only said Stop N Frisk; he didn’t say minorities as BloomBucks did. MAGA 2020.

    • Mainstream media skewers Sanders and Trump for stuff they said decades ago, media gives “moderate” Dems a pass for things they said recently. Lol

  19. “Audio recently unearthed by podcaster and Sanders supporter Benjamin Dixon”

    LOL look at that spin. A Bernie supportr found it so ignore it!

    • Lol really, how is it relevant that a Bernie supporter found it. What was said is on tape, it’s undeniable.

    • Audrey Muzingo | February 11, 2020 at 9:30 PM | Reply

      The cable networks stalling to play the audio is almost as chilling as hearing it. Anyone reading this, you can hear it on the young turks.

  20. He’s ONLY apologizing because of the election.
