Chris Cuomo Says Reform Won't Happen Until Police Kill "White People's Kids
During an appearance he made on CNN, Chris Cuomo spoke about the current policing methods used on citizens in the U.S. and also spoke on the reform that needs to take place. Cuomo delivered some criticism on policing that ultimately went viral, with the show host asking if reform would even be questioned if the victims of police shootings were the children of white people.
Cuomo said, "How many more? Die of the pandemic, dying from police shootings. George Floyd, Daunte Wright. I wonder if you'll remember their names six months from now because they'll be replaced by so many others."
Cuomo went on to say, "Forget that police are trained to deal with non-compliance with force that is not lethal. Hey, comply or die. And you know what the answer is. You really do. You don't like it, I don't like it, it scares me. Shootings, gun laws, access to weapons. Oh, I know when they'll change. Your kids start getting killed, white people's kids start getting killed."
Cuomo then took a moment to shift his attention to a confused white parent, who he imitated and said: "What's going on with these police? Maybe we shouldn't even have police," he said. Cuomo continued saying, "That kind of madness. That kind of mania. That will be you. That will be the majority. Because it's your people."
