Rep. Hakeem Jeffries: "Conservative Entertainment Complex" Doesn't Understand Ferguson


CHRIS HAYES, MSNBC: Bill O'Reilly said last night that people last night were using that gesture, and what that gesture means is that white cops are murdering black men everywhere indiscriminately on a warpath.

REP. HAKEEM JEFFRIES (D-New York): It's not surprising that the Conservative Entertainment Complex would completely misunderstand the point. "Hands Up Don't Shoot" is a rallying cry that is being embraced by people all around the country who are fed up with the lack of police accountability, fed up with young African Americans being killed by police officers all across the country, fed up with the lack of accountability from a Judicial system which often fails to properly prosecute/convict police officers accused of excessive force, and just fed up with the racial profiling, and the way in which too many law enforcement officers interact with too many communities of color. That's why we found it appropriate to show their solidarity.
