A newly released audio recording of Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg captured him publicly claiming that cops across the country could use a “Xerox” description to identify suspected murderers.
Bloomberg also admitted that his “stop-and-frisk” policy targeted minority kids in minority neighborhoods.
In response to the release of the audio, Bloomberg issued a statement: “President Trump’s deleted tweet is the latest example of his endless efforts to divide Americans. I inherited the police practice of stop-and-frisk, and as part of our effort to stop gun violence it was overused. By the time I left office, I cut it back by 95%, but I should’ve done it faster and sooner. I regret that and I have apologized — and I have taken responsibility for taking too long to understand the impact it had on Black and Latino communities …”
Benjamin Dixon, host of the Benjamin Dixon Show Podcast brought the polarizing audio of Bloomberg back into to forefront. Dixon spoke with Roland during Tuesday’s edition of #RolandMartinUnfiltered … #PressPlay.
