Tim Scott: No Question that These Shootings Have a ‘Racial Component’

‘That’s why we’re working on getting all the information, then retraining and then eliminating those police officers that have a pattern of misbehavior’

RUSH EXCERPT

SEN. SCOTT: Well, I- I will say most of us don’t really understand the definition of systemic racism. It changes based on the conversations. What I would suggest is that you look at the racial outcomes, is there a nexus to race in some of the outcomes in law enforcement? I think the answer is yes. Can we reduce that so that we’re no longer battling the question of the definition of systematic or systemic racism? I think the answer is yes. But there’s no question that the outcomes seem to have a racial component. And that’s why we’re working on getting all the information, then retraining and then eliminating those police officers that have a pattern of misbehavior.
