Quotes from the news wire:
He said it's clear to me that there is a cadre of senior people in New York who have a deep and visceral hatred of Secretary Clinton, i'm just troubled that this issue, meaning the, the New York agent issue and leaks, I am just troubled that this issue has put us where we are today with respect to this laptop.
The televising of the police dogs and the fire hoses on young people then was a motivating factor and wake-up call really for people within the U.S. and outside the U.S. to really face the issues of racial unrest in America, similarly we're at a situation where viewing these videos, viewing these incidents of misconduct, of deaths occurring -- hard as they are to see -- is giving an opportunity to talk about this. And frankly, it's giving law enforcement the opportunity to step forward, to be accountable and talk about what is and is not effective policing.
I think if you talk to people who live in communities that deal with these issues all the time, they will say to you that what these videos are showing us now is what people in many minority communities have been talking about for years, and what they've been describing for years, but they haven't been believed, they have been dismissed, mainly because people don't want to believe that law enforcement can overstep. And of course, it's not every law enforcement officer. But when it happens, the impact that it has, the gash that it leaves, in the web of trust that we need in order for everyone to feel safe, is tremendous. And so that's why these incidents resonate so deeply.
We do try and focus more on what people do as opposed to the inimitable characteristic of who they are, i'm sure there will be a lot of ink spilled on this in the days to come. What I would say is when it comes to religious tests for things as important as transiting borders, that that would be inconsistent with the American values that this administration is trying to uphold.
