Julian Castro on Crime

 

 


We must face police violence against minorities

When I announced I was running for President, I promised you that confronting and addressing police violence in communities of color would be one of my priorities. I stand by what I said that day: if police in Charleston can arrest [the white supremacist mass shooter there] after he murdered nine people at Bible study without hurting him, then don't tell me that Michael Brown, and Tamir Rice, and Aiyana Jones, Eric Garner Jason Pero, Stephon Clark and Sandra Bland shouldn't still be alive today.

I will work to ensure funding so that every officer who patrols our streets wears a body camera. I will target unconscious racial biases in policing and increasing accountability of law enforcement officials. This will include executive actions aimed at demanding immediate data collection on use of force by law enforcement, strengthening and increasing enforcement of federal protections against discriminatory policing, and directing increased resources to unconscious bias awareness trainings.
