Pat Robertson Declares Police Brutality Against Blacks A Thing Of The Past
[su_right_ad]Pat Roberson weighed in on the protests that have been taking place since the Ferguson verdict was announced.
Robertson said that while “there’s no question” that “African Americans in this society for decades have been subject to discrimination” and that “there has been police brutality in various cities,” that’s all over now and “we live in what amounts to a pretty much even-tempered type of society.”
“Police are very careful in dealing with people, they’re trained to be careful with minorities, and the abuses of the past are pretty much a thing of the past,” Robertson said.
Robertson all pronounced that the case of Michael Brown “isn’t a case dealing with social justice.”
“I’m all for social justice, and I think most of us are, but this case is somebody who may have been mentally disturbed, we don’t know that, he may have been high on something, we don’t know that, but whatever it was, the police officer had to defend himself and he was attacked in his police car. So why don’t they just cool it?”
