CNN Anchor Chris Cuomo: Police reform will come “when white people’s kids start getting killed by police”

CNN host Chris Cuomo said on Friday that police reform in the U.S. will not happen until “white people’s kids start getting killed.”

Cuomo lashed out at white Americans who have resisted calls for police to face accountability, particularly those who have sought to justify the shootings of 13-year-old Adam Toledo in Chicago.

“And you know what the answer is. You really do. You don’t like it. I don’t like. It scares me. Shootings, gun laws, access to weapons? Oh, I know when they’ll change,” Cuomo said. “Your kids start getting killed. White people’s kids start getting killed. Smoking that doobie that’s actually legal, probably in your state now, but they don’t know what it was, and then the kid runs, and then ‘Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop!’ Cop was justified.”

“‘Why’d you run?’ ‘Oh, he had a baseball game tonight.’ ‘Oh? White kid? Oh, big family, that house over there?’ Those start piling up, ‘What is going on with these police? Oh, what? Maybe we shouldn’t even have police!’ That kind of mania, that kind of madness, that’ll be you. That’ll be the majority, because it’s your people,” Cuomo said. “See, now Black people start getting all guns, forming militias, protect themselves? ‘Can’t trust Deep State!’ Whoo-whoo! You’ll see a wave of change, in access and accountability. We saw it in the 60s. That’s when it changes, because that’s when it’s you.”

Protests against police brutality and racism erupted across the nation last year following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and Breonna Taylor in Louisville.

Less than 15 miles away, where George Floyd died, Daunte Wright was gunned down by 26-year veteran police officer Kim Potter. Potter was allegedly tried to taser him but ended up killing him with her gun.

Brooklyn Center Police Department Chief (BCPD) Tim Gannon called the shooting of a Black man, 20-year-old Daunte Wright, by an officer an “accidental discharge.” Which many people called bullshit after watching the body camera footage of Wright slaying.

Potter has resigned from the BCPD and has been charged with second-degree manslaughter in the fatal shooting of Daunte Wright on April 11th.

The verdict in the murder trial for the officer involved in Floyd’s death in the coming weeks.

Do you agree or disagree with Cuomo?
