Members of the Congressional Black Caucus took to the House floor this week in protest of the grand jury decision in the shooting death of Michael Brown. Some made the “hands up, don’t shoot” gesture.
Sean Hannity tonight took on CBC member, Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton, asking her if she read the evidence heard by the grand jury.
“I did not, and that is not a concern,” she told him.
“The evidence isn’t a concern? What?” he asked.
Holmes Norton said the larger concern is that police stops for black Americans have become routine.
“This is an opportunity for a conversation between police departments and their own communities,” she said.
Hannity asked her, “Evidence isn’t a concern if you’re going to take a position on a case? In other words if Michael Brown didn’t rob the store, intimidate the clerk, if he didn’t fight for the gun and charge the officer...”
“I’m a lawyer, I have not read the transcript, I haven’t read the transcript because my interest is not in what happened, my interest is in what should happen, where we go forward from here. That is my interest, thank you very much,” she said.
