First of all, Jeb Bush did not know who Tamir Rice was. After the reporter asked him if he thought the grand jury was correct in refusing to bring charges against the two police officers who killed the 12-year-old boy in Ohio, Jeb began his answer saying something about Chicago. The reporter had to tell him that Tamir Rice was killed in Cleveland.
With that out of the way, Jeb continued answering the question. He told the reporter that the grand jury’s failure to indict the officers meant, “the process worked,” and that sometimes when these type of cases are brought, the grand jury often sees that “there’s no there, there” and they usually do the right thing.
Absolutely amazing. This is coming from the man who wants to be president of the United States. And while I’m sure his total ignorance on Tamir Rice’s killing will be welcomed by some Republicans, this ignorance solidifies what many in the minority community already knows – like his brother George, Jeb Bush “doesn’t care about black people.”
Thanks for the quote Kanya!
