CNN host Chris Cuomo said police reform won’t happen in the United States until “white people’s kids start getting killed.”
On Saturday’s episode of his show, “Cuomo Prime Time,” Cuomo discussed police reform in light of the killings of Daunte Wright and Adam Toledo, as well as the Derek Chauvin trial. Chris Cuomo stated the following on “Cuomo Prime Time: “The key is to figure out not just why it went wrong, but why can’t it go right for people who are black as often as it does for people who are white?”
Cuomo also lashed out at white Americans who have resisted calls for police to face accountability, particularly those who have sought to justify the shootings of 13-year-old Adam Toledo in Chicago and others who have died at the hands of police, exclaiming, “Shootings? Gun laws? Access to weapons? Your kids start getting killed? White people’s kids start getting killed?”
“Those start piling up,” he added, and people will ask, “What is going on with these police?” His remarks came following days of protests in Minnesota and Chicago over the deaths of Daunte Wright last Sunday and Toledo in March, which was captured on body camera footage released last week that revealed that Toledo appeared to be surrendering when he was fatally shot by an officer. Kim Potter who shot Duante Wright with a gun, which she mistook for a taser has been charged with second degree manslaughter. Eric Stillman 34, has been identified as the officer who shot Adam Toledo. Stillman is a 5-year veteran who had never previously shot anyone in the line of duty.
