White Missouri Lt. Gov: ‘Anglo-American Jurisprudence’ Is Working In Ferguson (Video)
OnTuesday, Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder (R) argued that the curfew in Ferguson should be reinstated because “Anglo-American civilization” is working in Ferguson. “I don’t understand an argument for not reinstating it,” he told MSNBC host Ronan Farrow. “I don’t understand that. I’m not trying to be overtly political. I am saying, the people of Ferguson, the people of the state of Missouri are crying out for leadership.”
[su_center_ad]In reference to the Mayor of Ferguson saying earlier there ‘is not racial divide in Ferguson,” Kinder told Farrow there“no question” that race was playing a role.
“We do not do justice in America in the streets though,” he said. (Martin Luther King, Jr. is spinning in his grave).
He went on to say, “We have legal processes that are set in motion, that are designed after centuries of Anglo-American jurisprudence tradition. They’re designed to protect the rights and liberties of everyone involved.”
“Our constitutional and our Bill of Rights protections have to be followed here, and we do not do justice in the streets,” he argued.
“That’s one of the great advances of Anglo-American civilization, is that that we do not have politicized trials. We let the justice system work it out,” he said without laughing.
I wonder if that sounded better in his head before he said it out loud.[su_sky_ad]
