Diving into the debate over police use of force, Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton on Wednesday urged police departments throughout the country to use body cameras and urged an end to excessive prison sentences that burden black communities, reports Reuters.

In a speech at New York's Columbia University, Clinton called on America "to come to terms with some hard truths about race and justice" in the aftermath of this week's Baltimore riots.

Clinton addressed the violence in Baltimore, where rioters looted stores and burned buildings to the ground on Monday following the funeral of a 25-year-old black man who died after suffering injuries while in police custody.

"There is something wrong when the trust between law enforcement and the communities they serve breaks down as far as it has in many of our communities," Clinton said.

She said body-worn cameras for police should be "the norm everywhere."

That is a great idea, but money is a big factor. 1st off some small departments don't have to money to supply officers with body armor, let alone body cameras. If she is able to get the funding for that I'm on board.

Its scary to think that people buy into this liberal rubbish.
Media and political stooges are the guilty ones.

Is she seriously talking about reduced criminal sentences for African Americans?

Steve Melczer @ 4/30/2015 8:35 PM

She's just a old bag of hot air. Power hungry, liar, coat-tail rider, and ugly and useless.
What is she doing talking about anything?
Shouldn't she be in prison?
All the Saudi money donated to the clinton foundation, blatantly defying and refusing to give the e-mails over? She is a threat to America and should be charged for Crimes against America.
Her new title: First Prison Bitch.

Look that that face on her. Scary...she wants power so bad, except that she doesn't even deserve the position of a trustee in the big house. That's where the trustee work disqualifies her.

The sad truth is these candidate are going to run with this garbage during the upcoming election. Andrew has the right idea. When there isn't funding to supply body armor, where are they going to come up with the money to cameras.
What is funny is these candidates are going to stand here and give speeches against the police but how easy they forget that it is those officers they are speaking out against that are protecting their butts in society.

Let us revisit Chinagate, and why she was so busy shredding those incriminating documents.

Thanks Hillary, but stick to something you have experience at, like lies. You have
zero experience at law enforcement. Another liberal sticking their nose into something
they know "nothing" about.

Stephen @ 5/1/2015 6:18 AM

She will be an advocate for any cause that rewards her with votes or money.

AZBIGDOG @ 5/1/2015 6:37 AM

Why would anyone believe what she thinks? She has already proven that she can't even tell the truth about her emails and is incapable of setting up an email account on a phone. I guess IT for the Secretary of State does not exist.

Tom Ret @ 5/1/2015 3:28 PM

I don't doubt the rumor that the secret service for Hillary, who were treated by her with distain, were tipping off Bill's detail when Hillary was due to come around so Bill's sexual liaison could make a hasty retreat. She was a power hungry lying nasty weasel then and hasn't changed. Both Clintons are as crooked as a dog's hind leg.
