Bill Clinton Backtracks On His Comments From Argument With Black Lives Matter Protesters At Rally

April 9. 2016

Former U.S. President, Bill Clinton, got into a heated argument with Black Lives Matter protestors at a Philadelphia rally, in support of his wife, Hillary Clinton, who is a candidate in the current American presidential election [Former U.S. President Bill Clinton Gets Into Argument With Black Lives Matter Protestors At Rally (Videos)]. Black Lives Protestors challenged the former head of state on his 1994 crime bill that placed many African-Americans in prison. Clinton responded that the bill was necessary to stem the number of crimes being committed in America. He made reference to black on black crime stating, "You are defending the people who kill the lives you say matter."

Clinton has now backtracked on his comments, "I did something yesterday in Philadelphia I almost want to apologize for. I realized, finally, I was talking past her the way she was talking past me. We gotta stop that in this country. We gotta listen to each other again. I rather vigorously defended my wife, as I am wont to do."...

As stated in the article Former U.S. President Bill Clinton Gets Into Argument With Black Lives Matter Protestors At Rally (Videos), in the 1990s Hillary Clinton referred to young black men as "super predators" and further stated "we must bring them to heel." I agree there is a problem with crime in the black community. Many angry, young black males have committed violent crimes. However, there is also a problem with crime in white communities as well. Many school shootings that resulted in mass casualties in America, have been committed by angry young white males. My point is crime happens everywhere, all over the world, in acts committed by many races. From a governmental standpoint it is best to look at the crimes and not the color of the perpetrators when assessing how best to lower crime rates. Once again, law and order via a strong justice system is important, but it must treat people of all races fairly.

Side Bar: you know who's a "super predator" Hillary, your husband's willy (penis). Your husband's willy has been killing vaginas all up and down the east and west coast of America. The people at Viagra probably originally thought of naming their drug Bill Clinton, but knew they couldn't get the trademark. Yea, I said it (LOL).

Bill Clinton 'almost' apologizes for arguing with Black Lives Matter protesters

April 9, 2016 8:35 AM - Former president Bill Clinton on Friday offered an "almost" apology for a testy back-and-forth with Black Lives Matter protesters who disrupted a campaign event in Philadelphia over his and his wife's support for anti-crime policies in the 1990s that have disproportionately affected African Americans.

But unlike on Thursday, when he defended his signing of the 1994 crime bill and Hillary Clinton's support for tough punishment to deal with what she called "super predator" juvenile offenders, Bill Clinton, according to NBC News, acknowledged Friday that some provisions of the legislation that called for longer prison sentences for minor offenses "cannot be justified." The legislation has been cited for accelerating the incarceration rate for black and Latino people, as well as ushered in policies that have led to overly aggressive policing in some communities of color. Criminal justice reform, a focal point of the Black Lives Matter movement, has become a major issue in the 2016 presidential campaign.

"I did something yesterday in Philadelphia I almost want to apologize for," Clinton told a crowd of several hundred at Penn State Behrend in Erie, Pennsylvania. Referring to a young woman who challenged him at the Philadelphia event, Clinton said: "I realized, finally, I was talking past her the way she was talking past me. We gotta stop that in this country. We gotta listen to each other again." He also sought to explain his response to the protesters by saying, "I rather vigorously defended my wife, as I am wont to do."...
